The Pixel 3 XL has leaked many times over the past few weeks. We’ve seen the retail packaging, multiple colors, sample photos from the camera, and hands-on video. The smaller Pixel 3, however, has been much shyer. We did finally get a look at this notch-less device recently. The specs are expected to be the same as the Pixel 3 XL, but with a smaller 5.5-inch display and 2915 mAh battery.
