Pixel Stand: Google Assistant-enabled wireless charging stand for Pixel 3 leaks

As well they should be - Google Pixel 2 is still one of the best camera phones in the world almost a year after initial release.

As you can see from the image above of the handset's rear panel, the placement of the camera, flash, fingerprint reader, and logo match up with what we expect the Pixel 3 XL to look like, but that's not to say that the design could change somewhat in the months between now and its presumed October launch. As you can see in the pictures shown above, the white is clearly visible around the edge of the device and on the rear.

A prototype of Google's Pixel 3 XL has made its way into the wild, corroborating numerous rumours we've heard so far. For instance, we also get a glimpse of the front-facing speaker that's expected to sit on the bottom bezel of the display, on the phone's chin. But with the leaks coming in hard and heavy here at the tail end of July, we must ask: Will Pixel 3 come early this year?

The Google Pixel 3 probably has no headphone jack, and runs with the "notch" trend up front. It makes sense to dock your phone on your desk and still be able to speak to it, as you would Google Home. From the looks of these photos, Google is planning the same approach for 2018. Internally, the test model carries 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, presumably as Google plans to continue pushing its cloud services. Just like with the leaked images of the black Pixel 3 XL, it appears as though the back of the handset is made out of glass and the lower two-thirds of the design is covered in a plastic-like material to provide grip.

Of note is that apparently the back features a single piece of glass, but the top part is glossy, while the rest is matte.
