Google Pixel 3 XL prototype reveals notch display, single rear camera

11 June 2018

The back of the phone seems to be made of glass this time around, hinting at the possibility of wireless charging support.

The most popular add-on transforms Active Edge into the Edge Sense feature found on the HTC U11, introducing the option to remap the frame, letting users launch different applications by applying different levels of pressure to the frame.

One of the most underappreciated features of Google's Pixel is the launcher. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 can run the SideSqueeze app while the Xiaomi Mi 5's MIUI 8.2.2 menu shows "Edge control" on the menu. After some digging in the SystemUIGoogle.APK file, the words "Crosshatch" and "Blueline" were found under the Active Edge section. These are the alleged codenames for the Pixel 3 smartphones. It's not as customizable.

Last week, a collection of leaked hands-on images surfaced online showcasing the Google Pixel 3 XL from all angles, corroborating nearly everything we've heard about the unit to date, including that it features a notch-clad edge-to-edge screen.

Google has the habit of taking away features without warning.

Malta refused, and when Italy instructed the ship to stay at sea, Malta accused Italy of violating worldwide norms. Malta, for its part, has consistently refused to take in migrants , citing its small size and limited capacities.

The tech giant is known for removing features from new devices. The Active Edge could be removed the same way Google removed the headphone jack from the Pixel 2 line even when it was known to criticize Apple when such was removed from iPhone.

You might be wondering how the device supports wireless charging when it has a metal back. meraz9000 says what we saw is actually glass and not metal though it still retains the two-tone finish of the previous Pixel phones. It would have been easier to guess the presence of the Active Edge if HTC is working on it.

Pictures of the prototype model for Google Pixel 3 XL were revealed by xdadevelopers.

The additional features that are seen in the code also include references for the wireless chargers and docks.
