The larger variant will feature an edge-to-edge display which has been the recent trend, except for a chin at the bottom and a notch at the top.

In terms of specification, the Pixel Watch will come with a successor to the Wear 2 100 processor, which was first introduced three years ago.

A Bloomberg report claims that Foxconn will make Google's next generation Pixel handsets. But the good news is leaks have begun to pop up around the web, and we already have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Google's upcoming new flagship phone duo. Meaning, both the Pixel 3 and 3 XL will come with a single camera on the back.

If this is legit (and that's a big "if"), then only the bigger model will sport a notch, as you can see from the images below.

For anybody hoping, therefore, that Google would use the Pixel 3 to settle the argument on display notches, there's going to be disappointment. The larger Pixel 3 XL device will be the first of Google's line-up to adopt the iPhone X-style notch, which ties in well with Android P's native support for the divisive feature.

The Pixel 3 XL's notch will earn its keep in part by including not one but two front-facing cameras, sources say. The Google Pixel 2 XL was launched in India for a starting price of Rs 73,000 while the Google Pixel 2 was launched from Rs 61,000 onwards.

Elsewhere, a Bloomberg report suggests that the smaller Pixel 3 will only be incremental upgrade over its predecessor, implying it won't get significant design changes. This year, however, it has its own hardware division and it should make the Pixel 3 in-house.

As for internal specs, there are now no leaks, though it's expected the phone will feature Android P and a Snapdragon 845 chipset. Apparently Google has been shopping around for sometime for a new manufacturer for their line of smartphones. However, the company will stick with a single rear camera lens like previous year on both the phones.

The tech company Google is expected to announce this coming October their latest hardware products like Pixel phones, wireless earbuds, and Home speakers. It does however has a chin on both the top/bottom of the device, which reminds us to the Pixel 2 XL and the new Pixel 3.
