  • Google to launch Pixel Stand charging dock with Pixel 3

Google is expected to launch the next-generation Pixel phones sometime later this year. A couple of images have surfaced online claiming to show off the Pixel 3 XL in its "Clearly White" color.

9to5 Google reckons there is a Pixel Stand accessory on the way with the release of the Google Pixel 3 and 3XL.

The images are courtesy of XDA member, dr.guru, and they also show the front of the phone which confirms the presence of a rather large notch as well as a pair of front-facing speakers. We had a hint at these designs back in May when some tempered glass screen protectors for the Pixel 3 and 3XL were leaked.

So there are still three more flagships that we are still waiting, each coming from Samsung, Apple and Huawei, there is still one more device that hasn't pick up the hype train yet and that'd be the Google Pixel 3 series. A "Pixel Stand" peripheral has also been leaked, which may serve as a wireless charging dock.

If you were a fan of the black and white (panda) Google Pixel 2 XL from previous year, it unfortunately doesn't look like Google will be bringing back the design with the Pixel 3 XL.

Klopp: £67 million for Alisson is not 'crazy money'
Sturridge has just one year left on his contract at Anfield, though insists he's never fallen out with Klopp. If you watch it back and you are not with Real Madrid then you think it is ruthless and brutal.

The phone, however, doesn't boot up, as Google has wiped it remotely.

If we follow Google's schedule, it should be out on 4 October 2018 or so.

The phone is an EVT 1.0 model (Engineering Validation Test), sporting 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. I personally use an iPhone X and the notch never gets in the way, though the bigger size of the Pixel 3 XL's notch could offer a different experience.

The leaker says that the "top part [of the back] is glossy and the bottom is matte" but that it's all "a single part".
