We’ve been waiting for this for the longest time. The first batch of alleged live photos of a Google Pixel 3 XL prototype is already circulating online, four months before the phone’s expected launch.

And if you’re hoping for a screen without a notch, let us burst your bubble as early as now. Because right there at the top is a cutout housing an earpiece, a camera, and a sensor. Granted that it’s narrow, it’s still one controversial design choice. Not that we’re not expecting it. Previous leaks — plus rumors that Google is rushing notch support on Android P — point to the big G adopting it for its own Pixel smartphones.

There’s a notch on the display of this Google Pixel 3 XL prototype with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory.

Further down below, at the bottom of the Google Pixel 3 XL, is a bezel that’s not exactly thin by today’s standards. There’s a large slit as well, indicating that it has front-facing stereo speakers.

The picture of the device’s back shows that the well-loved two-tone design of Pixels past is here to stay. It seems that there will still be one camera — not a biggie considering that the company’s handsets have always been praised for their ability to take great pictures. The difference now is the placement of the laser-focus module and LED flash. Plus, the whole rear panel, not just the upper part, is now made of glass.

The logo at the bottom of this particular Google Pixel 3 XL unit indicates that this is an engineering unit.

Over to the bottom of the Google Pixel 3 XL is a USB Type-C port. A SIM card slot is positioned next to it, something we’ve seen on the Vivo X21 UD.

A SIM card slot at the bottom of the Google Pixel 2 XL’s successor? Just like the Vivo X21 UD then.

Assuming that what you see here is indeed an engineering unit of the Google Pixel 2 XL‘s successor, let us ask you: Are you liking what you see thus far, or are you hoping for a more refined final version of the smartphone?
