Almost half-way through the year, we're basically left waiting for only two more premium smartphones: Apple's new iPhones and, of course, Google's third-generartion Pixel phones. XDA-Developers managed to get their hands on what appears to be a prototype for the Pixel 3 XL and the photos shows the notch on the top along with a chin at the bottom.
Phone Designer In this post, which will be updated regularly, we'll be looking at the latest rumors surrounding the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Even before the second-gen Pixel 2 phone's official launch, it was sighted on FCC with Android 8.0.1 Oreo and Active Edge. However, a report now reveals that it might also give a key feature that accompany the Pixel 3 - wireless charging. A year later though, the company followed suit and ended up removing the headphone jack from the Pixel 2 in 2017.
Wireless charging is one of the features you will find in high-end flagships from the big names in the industry. The Active Edge feature works similar to that of the HTC's squeeze gesture found is HTC U11 and U11+. Uncharacteristically, we seem to know more about the 2018 iPhones than the Pixel 3.
The SystemUIGoogle.APK file discovered by folks at XDA Developers shows the components for Active Edge - codenamed "Elmyra", in four phones. The other two are listed with codenames - crosshatch and blueline which are reportedly for Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 respectively.

The Xbox exec continued by announcing that Microsoft's hardware team is deep on architecting the next Xbox Console. The new game in the Halo series was revealed with a trailer, although sadly no gameplay footage was shown.
Active Edge debuted on the Pixel 2 smartphones and lets you bring up Google Assistant if you squeeze the sides.
There is no guarantee that Active Edge returns on the Pixel 3 smartphones, however.
Even as this might be a speculation, considering the Pixel 3XL prototypes were leaked recently this should come as a surprise. The report suggests that the glass back of the Pixel 3 will come with two finish.
