    The Pixel 3 could have a more swipe based UI from the most recent leak: https://www.androidcentral.com/andro...navigation-bar

    I like it. I really like the UI on the iPhone X and have no issues with Google adopting elements of it. The android UI could go for a bit of a mixup. Has had essentially the same UI (in terms of usability) since 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich back in 2011. I think an overhaul of the UI is due.

    Pixel 3 shaping be a pretty amazing device.
    Hmm, that is pretty interesting. Will anticipate seeing the unboxing and review videos so we can see how the new (rumoured) UI works up close.

    Well the rumored UX will be showcased at Google I/O when Google shows off new features in Android P

    I have a suggestion for their over the top premium phone: three or more cameras on the back side, each with different focal lengthes and features.

    Their image processing is good enough to handle a zoom lens. Let one of those cameras be equivalent to a 85mm or longer zoom lens when measured in the traditional 35mm film world.

    Cost is no object. Let the top of the back side be studded with openings for all sorts of esoteric features. Even make it bulge out a little to ease mechanical packaging.

    The ability to take good quality zoom photos is a game changer.

    Triple cameras would be pretty awesome!

    Yeah but that would also be against what Google has done so far, especially in computational photography. They might include two cameras that enables true depth sensing rather than relying solely on one sensor.

    You're right: triple camera is not Google's style. When you think about it, too, they did such a great job with one!

    I know it may sound weird but I really want a white phone. Yes I put a case on my phone but I prefer clear or partially clear cases and I will still see the white. I hated the thought of a 2 tone phone on the xl but I couldn't do the smaller pixel 2. I k ow that not everyone loves the same colors so most are generic so I was floored by that ugly orange button.

    I too gravitate towards white phones and will use clear or at least translucent cases. So I definitely understand your thinking.

    I'm pretty sure the Pixel 3 will be impressive. I just hope they don't think it's worth $1000.

    I do like a lot of your suggestions! I feel like I'm the only one who actually loved bezels and therefore really loved the look and feel of the Pixel 2.

    I do agree with you that it would be cool if a 5.5-inch variant of the Pixel 3 could exist; OR that Google makes three variants: the small Pixel 3 (5"), the medium Pixel 3 (5.5"), and the large Pixel 3 XL (6"). That would tickle my fancy - they could even make the three variants different colours like before. Sure, they could trim down the bezels; but I just don't understand the surprising amount of disdain for bezels. But that's why maybe Google could eliminate more bezels for one or two of the versions and let the other version have a bit more.
    5.5 inch with new skinny ratio would look pretty tiny

    Dear Google... take note.

    I really like how the black bar on the back has a margin between it and the edges of the phone. It reminds me a lot of the Nexus 6P, which I'm still using (and looking to replace). I dislike the hard switch in material on the back of the current Pixels.

    I on the other hand disagree with almost the entire list. It seems to lose track of the plot while trying to turn the best phone in the market into just another spec sheet *****/ xda fanboy monstrosity with no thought towards the purpose of the lineup.

    Yeah this.

    Google is 110% all in with AI and machine learning, which is really exciting to think what features the Pixel 3 will have. I wonder if it'll have many Pixel exclusive things or if they want all their features available for all Android users.

    On a side note, apparently Google will release a Pixel smartwatch this year, probably launching alongside the Pixel 3: https://www.androidcentral.com/googl...de-pixel-3?amp

    I agree that would look awesome but really want to know where the speakers and camera and sensors are. But there is a major rule about Forbes.

    Always, wait no, never trust anything Forbes has to say about the tech industry. They're very close to bgr level nonsense with their inability to keep things honest.

    Their "source" said the first prototypes have a notch. lol, yes there are prototypes with and without notches. Also, the majority of the design is final already because it's already too late to make major changes.

    The decision to notch or no notch would have to have been made months ago, possibly in 2017 because that is a central part of the design of the device and where to house the components. If you don't have a notch, the front camera isn't going in the center, which means internal components are in different places, which means the where and in some cases what of internal components would still be in flux which would mean you can't place orders on parts.

    If things go like last year, there are several people already testing the P3s with final or near final design as their daily drivers now and within 5-6 weeks there will be many more people testing it out for the two-three months run-up to launch. Once those devices go into tester hands, it'd usually too late to make any hardware changes unless there is an extreme issue that can't be fully solved or mitigated by software.

    Leak showing supposed Pixel 3 and 3XL screen protectors: Google Pixel 3 and notched Pixel 3XL tempered glass protector film surfaces « SLASHLEAKS

    Google Pixel 3 / 3 XL 2018-a064e803gy1fqtmvvgd41j20qo0qodmm.jpg

    The Pixel 3 screen looks somewhat normal, but the P3XL screen looks a bit wacky to me. Notch size is fine, and even though I know people hate them, this one isn't too big, however the bottom chin looks a bit big. I guess they're keeping the dual front facing speakers, but having the top pretty much bezel-less, then the bottom with a bezel and the top speaker grille small then the bottom one big just looks odd to me. I like symmetry, so the smaller Pixel 3 looks more appealing to me based on these screen protectors. Have to wait to see final design of course - who knows if these are even real.

    Here's hoping the Pixel 3 has a 5.5" screen and a decent sized battery (~3,300mah would be fine). If it does, then I'll get that, unless the design of the P3XL looks substantially better in its final design.

    Other than that, dual front facing cameras look like they could be great. HTC has dual front facing cameras for the U12+, so wonder if the P3 has been influenced here by that phone. Anyway, looks like it's leak season for the Pixel 3. If I remember correctly, June/July was when solid Pixel 2 leaks came out, so we should be seeing more and more of the phones in the coming months.

    An early wave of external testers got their devices in mid to late June last year.

    Hell no .. Let's keep the smaller Pixel small. Pocketability is a good thing.
