It looks like the Google’s yet-to-be-announced Pixel 3 could already be in the pipelines, and it’s also very likely that the phone will launch with the upcoming Android P. More importantly, a leaked illustration suggests that the phone will have a notchless display.
The illustrations were first reported by SlashLeaks, who discovered the them in the current Android P beta. Upon closer inspection, we can see that the phone in the picture do not portray a notch at the top of its display. Given Google’s habit of using its own Pixel smartphones as a point of reference, it’s not wrong to assume that the phone being depicted could be a Pixel 3.
To be fair, the illustrations don’t actually name the device outright. However, the phone in the illustration depicts a phone with a bezel-less display; the Pixel 2, while utilising a 18:9 ratio display, still retains thin but visible bezels.
Google also seems to be shifting its focus towards gesture control for Android P. One slide depicts swiping up from the home button to allow the phone to see all active apps, rather than having a dedicated overview button. It also looks like Android P will allow users to activate the phone’s silent mode simply by pressing the power and volume up button together.
Android P was first announced during Google I/O 2018. The beta version was also made available on the same day. At the time of writing, there is still no fixed date for its official launch, neither is there any world about the Pixel 3.
