Google added notch support to the Android P, not only because there are a bunch of Android phones with a notch but as it seems, also because it is joining the bandwagon.
A render of the Pixel 3 XL has surfaced online that shows the front of the device. The photo was posted on Twitter by a user with the name Pau Curcio and he/she claims it is an official render.

The render shows the Pixel 3 with curved corners (display and body). There is a notch at the top that houses a camera, earpiece, and sensor. The bottom bezel is home to a large speaker cut-out which shows the device will have stereo front-facing speakers. Even though there is no photo of the rear of the device, it is safe to presume the fingerprint scanner is on the rear.
Asides the above render, a photo showing the tempered glass of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have also surfaced online. This photo also shows that the larger Pixel is the one getting a notch while the smaller one gets an 18:9 display.
Apart from the notch, both devices have similar cut-outs at the top and bottom. There is a cut-out for a speaker at the bottom and there are two large holes which we think are for cameras and not an intricate face unlock mechanism. The other two cut-outs are for the sensor and speaker.
There is no way to confirm the authenticity of these images but what will be surprising is if none of the 3rd gen Pixel phones don’t launch with a notch.
