    From my understanding htc was supposed to be doing the design of pixels , that's why they bought the engineer team and who made the first generation pixels, now pixel 2xl was not designed by htc to Google specs but lg did...now who's building the pixel 3?
    No HTC has never designed pixels. the first generation of pickles were designed by Google and HTC rented them manufacturing space. the second to wear the same thing with the XL being built in LG factories but same relationship as before. This time Google is the designer of both phones with Foxconn actually doing the assembly. next time Google will be the designer again but HTC's former Engineers will be there to help out.

    They even took the feature (squeeze) from htc
    I'm speculating that was a deal they worked out in return for getting the build contract.

    Oh please. Fix the dimensions then. Have you not seen the Note 9 specs? It can be done, it should be done.
    Agreed.

    The Note 9 has a 4,000mah battery (20% larger battery than the Note 8) *and still* finds space for the s-pen slot.

    Whereas Google makes the battery smaller in the Pixel 3 XL.

    The fact that Google is playing catch up with it's battery size and the fact that they are keeping only one camera lens for the rear has really made me a bit sad. I was hoping for at least 3600-3800mah and for a second lens that either did wide angle or 2x zoom so I wouldn't need a moment lens for wide angle shots. :/

    They're working on the 4 already, I hope some aspects of the note 9 do influence it.

    From what I recall reading about Google's purchase of HTC resources was that it was the HTC employees that were working on the Google Pixel products that were the acquisition. One could surmise these HTC folks were privy to the Pixel 3 designs but it would be just speculation.

    According to Mario they didn't have their hands in the design ... Google came up with the design all by themselves and just had htc build it to Google specs
