KXIP vs KKR Live Score

A new report claims that while the Pixel 3 XL comes with major upgrades, its smaller sibling, the Pixel 3, won't be that much different from last year's Pixel 2.

As expected, Google will launch two models - Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. This came from examining screen protectors for the incoming PIxel 3 siblings (see below), which show a larger protector - presumably for the Pixel 3 XL - with a notch instead of a top bezel.

Pixel 3 XL will be a bigger version of the Pixel 3, like Pixel 2 XL is of Pixel 2.

Lately, in Google's Pixel lineup smartphones, LG lost the contract to manufacture the future smartphone. Many rumors have already emerged online and many will come until the launch of the next Google flagship smartphone. Personally, I'd rather have a regular rectangular surface and a slightly thicker bezel than a useless notch carved out of various applications, but the market has clearly spoken on that front.

A final interesting note is the fact that unlike previous handsets carrying the Pixel name, this year's devices may be built by Foxconn.

Google has discussed building its phones for the first time with Hon Hai Precision Industry, also known as Foxconn, the same manufacturer that assembles iPhones, one of the people said. The alleged image showing the phones' tempered glass screen protectors also hint that both the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL have stereo front-facing speakers.

Besides lava and ash, Hawaii volcano is pumping out ‘vog’
This lava has covered some 2,500 acres in and around the Leilani Estates neighborhood, and several flows have reached the sea. The new fissure sent more lava into the to evacuated Leilani Estates district in the eastern corner of Hawaii's Big Island.

Since the Pixel 2 launch, of course, Google has welcomed a sizable chunk of HTC's phone team into its fold.

Google, a popular tech giant is reportedly believed to be working on the new Pixel line-up which is expected to sport edge-to-edge display.

The upcoming Android release has baked-in support for notched displays, with the ability to adjust layout automatically according to which sections of the screen are non-functional.

The new Pixels should become official this fall, running Android P and with the Snapdragon 845 SoC at the helm.

The report goes on to say that Google won't be adopting a dual rear camera setup on either one of the Pixel smartphones this year. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will only be released in five months, so in the meantime, a lot can change. It is also reported that Google started producing prototypes of the mainboards in large numbers in January itself, so expect more rumours in the coming days related to the Pixel 3 devices.
