Leaked renders show Google Pixel 3 without notch and Pixel 3 XL with, front and center

Notches are so early 2018 - or so Oppo's Find X would have you believe - but Google seems to remain steadfast in its opinion that the notch train don't stop for nobody. Indeed, based on the leaks that you're about to see below, the Pixel 3 XL appears to come with said unapologetic intrusion into one's precious screen real estate, but its smaller sibling the Pixel 3, takes a more old-school Samsung-esque approach with a more familiar forehead and chin.

Over on the back, both phones appear to take a largely similar approach to their predecessing Pixel 2 lineup - a single camera sensor, a fingerprint scanner, the Google logo and the ecelectic mix of glass and aluminium. The right side sports the volume buttons along with an accented lock button, and the bottom features the lone type-C port and a SIM tray.

The real fun is over at the front; on both variants, the upper bezel and the notch respectively are occupied by not one, but two front cameras.

Secondly, another form of parity between the two devices comes in the form of what seems to be a dual-speaker set up, one on the forehead and chin each, so as has always been the case, Google appears to be gunning for identical features between the two devices, across the board, with the primary difference between the two likely to be the respective 5.3 and 6.2-inch screens. Both variants are rumored to be manufactured by Foxconn, rather than by HTC or LG, who handled one of each last year.

Beyond these, not much else is known about the phone and its internals, though given most flagships this year come with a Snapdragon 845 chip, you can expect Google's offering to sport the same. Check out the extensively captured renders below.

Though these sort of leaks have a tendency to be accurate, we're still months away from their expected October release, and a lot could change between now and then, so as always, these images are to be taken with a pinch of salt.
