Your next Pixel phone will feature wireless charging

Google's upcoming hardware launch - rumored to include a new Pixelbook, the latest Pixel smartphones, and a smartwatch - just got a little less exciting. Now, with some detective work, we may have an idea where all these unreleased phones are coming from. In what seems to be a somewhat odd move, though, it's claimed that two of the four next-generation devices will actually be ready in time for the Pixel 3 launch.

The Google Pixel 3 XL has leaked in a revealing set of photos taken apparently in public which show off the new smartphone and its mighty notch screen.

Some of the black market Telegram messages, with the contact info obscured. Much of what we see here is improvement on the Pixel 2 XL model, not a re-thinking of what a Pixel is at its core (or even edges). Due to the sketchiness of it, 9to5Google originally wondered whether the seller may have simply been scamming potential buyers.

Google didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

The series of brief meetings reflect a thaw in diplomatic tensions between the governments of the two Koreas. Dozens of Korean families separated during the Korean War were finally reunited after decades apart.

Previously, there was a report that Google may be testing a new version of Pixel launcher.

Interestingly, Google has again made a decision to drop dual cameras, and Pixel 3 XL will come with a single rear shooter. The back of the device looks almost identical to the current Google Pixel 2 XL. Once again, Google's big-and-expensive Pixel phone is all about the holistic experience and simplicity, not "more of everything" as we see from phones like the Galaxy Note 9. Since the rear should feature a single lens camera it would be odd to go for a double in the front.

Now, however, we're getting our first real glimpse of what appears to be the standard, non-XL Pixel 3, courtesy of Twitter user Khoroshev and website Rozetked - and it looks pretty good so far. The design is exactly what we expected, including the notch and disappointingly large chin. However, none of the prototypes seem to have any kind of advanced face unlock; they all still have the normal "Trusted Face" feature that most Android handsets already have.

The unboxing also features an adapter for headphones with P2 input, USB-C type cable on both connectors and another USB-C type for traditional USB adapter.
