At this point, it seems as though we’ve learned just about everything that we possibly can about Google’s upcoming Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. The phones have leaked heavily over the past few months and we’ve even gotten glimpses at some of the accessories that will be available for the Android Pie devices.
Now, notorious gadget leaker Evan Blass has posted two new renders that clearly show the fronts of both the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL. The former looks like a scaled down Pixel 2 XL in design, while the latter has fully embraced the notched display trend that has infected many of 2018’s flagship smartphones. The renders also seemingly confirm the appearance of stereo speakers, with one speaker at the top of the phone, and one at the bottom.

The leak train continues with real-life images from Ishan Agarwal, who gives us a good look at the notched Pixel 3 XL. According to Agarwal, the device has a “frosted” glass back, a mint-colored power button, rear fingerprint sensor and a single rear camera (just like all of the Pixel phones that came before it).
So here is another look at the Pixel 3 XL exclusively from me! According to the source, the device features a frosted glass back with kinda plastic sides (could be metal with some coating). Also has a SIM Tray at the bottom.#Google#GooglePixel3 #Pixel3XL#Pixel3 pic.twitter.com/ocEKb5QoW2

The Pixel Stand is a reportedly a wireless charging accessory for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, allowing it to stand upright while charging.
The Pixel Stand apparently invokes a slide show mode on the Pixel 3, which allow you to display a select number of photos while your device charges. In addition, there also appears to be a custom UI that displays calendar notifications, alarms, and messages (among other things) when docked.
When it comes to hardware specs, it’s expected that Google will include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with an undetermined amount of RAM (although 6GB to 8GB seems to be par for the course for current Android flagships). The Pixel 3 is expected to feature a 5.5-inch display, while the Pixel 3 XL will have a 6.2-inch display. When it comes to internal storage, we’re expecting up to 256GB, although Google could surprise us with a 512GB SKU, matching the top capacities of the iPhone XS/XS Max and Galaxy Note 9.
However, all will be revealed on October 9th; that when Google has scheduled an event to show off the Pixel 3 family, and perhaps the rumored
