Details of the Pixel 3 XL leaked earlier this month. Now a throwaway account on Reddit has leaked images and specs of its smaller sibling, the Pixel 3. Here are the details.

A throwaway Reddit account called /u/Pixel3Throwaway - which has since been deleted by the user - posted an album on Imgur containing images of someone holding the Pixel 3 as well as screenshots of the phone's specs.

The leaked images show that the phone is quite similar in appearance to the already leaked Pixel 3 XL. Thankfully, one of the key differences between the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is the 3's lack of a notch.

Here's Everything Inside The Google Pixel 3 XL Box

Over the past few months, the Pixel 3 XL has been subject to a barrage of leaks from online sleuthsters. We're not sure if this is down to cunning design on Google's part or bumbling ineptitude. Either way, we know practically everything about the new phone - and now there's an unboxing video to go with all those juicy specifications.

    The article is a bit misleading because these images are not from the Pixel 3 XL - which is the model with the notch.

    These images are apparently from the standard sized, smaller Pixel 3. This model was never going to have a notch.

    The P3XL will retain the notch. The standard sized P3 will not. This has been common knowledge for months now and the leak confirms it.

      Seems pretty clear to me, there's no mention of the 3XL other than to say the subject of the article is the smaller 3.

      As an aside, nice to see the screen ration referred to as 2:1 rather than 18:9.

        Yeah it's more in the title than the article itself, to be fair. I read it as implying Google's done a sudden backflip and removed the notch but the truth is the standard Pixel 3 never had the notch, only the XL did.

      Oh no, don’t spoli the party White Pointer. Notches get about as much airplay as the political moroms who run our country.
      It’s vitally important that the public are made aware of these revolutionary (and mind blowing) advancements in notchless screens... even if it turns out to be fake news.

    Thank christ. The notch is a terrible design idea.

      Except to those who use phones with a notch, and dont have an irrational hatred of Apple.

        Previously owned a iPhone x through work. Loved the phone, hated the notch. I have also previously owned several iphones
