Google Will Try to Tackle Latest iPhones With Pixel Phone Upgrades

Just that, 2 XL was slightly bigger in size than the Pixel 2.

Even though October is still months away, rumours of the upcoming Pixel smartphones are now stronger than ever. A spokeswoman for Google declined to comment on the new phones. Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3XL are the successors to the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2XL. Instead, it'll be straddling it, with two display approaches.

Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL introduced screen protectors (left) and schematics based on them (right).

Ubisoft confirms Assassin’s Creed Odyssey after leak
Finally, Schreier states that Odyssey is slated for release during Ubisoft's 2019 fiscal year, which ends on March 31st, 2019. It's worth a read, even if you should take all of that with a grain of salt.

However, according to Bloomberg's sources, Google is not looking to adopt the entire design and will be leaving a thick bezel on the bottom edge of the smartphone. It will also follow the iPhone X's lead by including a notch at the top of the screen to accommodate front-facing sensors.

Google's flagship phone will take a leaf out of iPhone X's book and sport a notch on its display. First introduced in a big way with the iPhone X, the notch has since been a topic of debate as to whether it really is desirable; so much that OnePlus made a decision to play it safe by introducing a setting to make the notch invisible.

They added that both models will include upgraded, single-lens cameras on the back, while the bigger Pixel will include two camera lenses on the front.

Simply walk into any Krispy Kreme store tomorrow and you'll walk away with a free Original Glazed Doughnut - doughnut miss out! Tom + Chee - The Lancaster restaurant is giving away free grilled cheese doughnuts with purchase of any sandwich.

However, Bloomberg claims that Google is likely to stick with a single-lens camera design this time around, though it will still get an upgrade of some sort.

The current Pixel 2 costs US$50 less than iPhone 8, while the larger model costs US$50 more than the entry-level iPhone 8 Plus. The regular model will have an 18:9 aspect display with no notch. This year, however, it has its own hardware division and it should make the Pixel 3 in-house. Traditionally, Google would go to companies like LG to manufacture their devices, but this year it's thinking of Foxconn as a potential manufacturer.

LG supplied Google with OLED panels for last year's Pixel 2 XL.

Sergio Ramos sends quick recovery wishes to Mohamed Salah
Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp said "anything is possible" but that Salah is doubtful for the World Cup. It's a serious injury, a really serious injury".

As Bloomberg points out, this is the third year in a row that the Pixel phones have been exclusive to Verizon, so it's not surprising that this hasn't changed. If you're anxious, just make sure you've got a secure lock screen setup so any of your pesky/nosy friends can't go snooping about your messages.
