One thing that is surely going to get mixed reactions from the fans is the notch, and yes, Google is all set to launch the Pixel 3 XL with a notch on top.

As per their report, Google's Pixel 3 XL, codenamed "crosshatch", not only features a notch over the display, but also sports dual-front cameras.

The net has gone real photos Google Pixel 3 XL is the flagship smartphone of the third generation, before the announcement of which remains for several months.

As far as other details, we can see that this unit in the pictures is a test model (EVT 1.0) with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Both Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL are touted to launch somewhere in October along with Pixel Stand and preferably, the devices will have wireless charging capabilities. "Your Assistant can use your personal info to make suggestions, answer questions, and take actions for you when your phone is locked and on your Pixel Stand", reads the patch notes.

Received by XDA Developers, the images of the white Pixel 3 XL show bootloader information of the phone.

9to5Google is reporting that the alongside the updated phone will be a new accessory called the Pixel Stand.
