Back in October 2018, Google announced its latest and greatest Pixel smartphones named Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Though Google Pixel 3 is offering an 18:9 aspect ratio screen with thick bezels whereas Pixel 3 XL came with a notch screen for a higher screen-to-body ratio.
Now, things seem to be changed as Mountain View Tech Giant has finally planned to join the club of full-screen notch-free smartphone brands. Just a few days back, company has been granted a patent for a smartphone which will be the brand’s first and foremost smartphone to come with an edge-to-edge screen.
Google mobile patent, a couple of days back, appeared on World Intellectual Property Organization’s website. It includes a handful of sketches of this smartphone which shows off its complete design. The sketches show that it doesn’t house a notch and loaded with a full-screen display.
That handset seems to have no existent bezels around the display – eliminating even a relatively thick chin at the bottom from Google Pixel 3 XL. Outback, it looks similar to Google Pixel 2 XL. It’s sporting a single rear camera – accompanied by an LED Flash – apart from a fingerprint sensor.
Further sketches indicate that it has a two-tone finish outback – very much like Google Pixel 2 XL. Both volume rockers and power button are seemed to be placed on the right-hand side whereas the left-hand side is covered by a SIM Card Tray.
At bottom, we can see a USB Type-C Port whereas the top contains a microphone. Unfortunately (or interestingly) it doesn’t house a 3.5mm headphone jack – like 2nd and 3rd generation Pixel devices.
Google Pixel 3 Duo
Google is reportedly working on a budget-friendly smartphone named Google Pixel 3 duo which is most likely to arrive on shelves as Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite. We have already gone through a handful of CAD-based renders as well as 360-degree video of these devices. The Pixel 3 XL Lite popped on Geekbench recently – but, sadly, for now, there is no word when Google will officially launch these handsets.
