Thanks to the way Android 9 Pie works, you usually get two actual icons and a third "overflow" icon indicating that you have more icons to look at.

Sure, the notch on the iPhone X might be wider, but the one on the Pixel 3 XL is nearly 2x more deep which makes it look pretty awkward. Numerous leaks have surfaced over the past several months, which have revealed benchmarks, a possible release date, and feature information. The Pixel 2 XL has an orange button on the side, which makes it stand out.

The Google Pixel 3 XL has not been shy about showing its face. You will still find the main camera and LED flash on the top left-hand side with a fingerprint sensor on the back. I certainly wouldn't choose the Pixel 3 XL over the iPhone X or the many Android handsets that are far more attractive.

In terms of hardware, the phones will likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, given these are premium flagship phones. That's definitely a nice improvement from last year's Pixel 2 devices, where you'd get a USB-C/3.5mm adapter for the earphones.

In the box, we see a pair of ear buds that share a similar design to Google's Pixel Buds, but they are wired (with USB-C) and lack the "G" logo on the outside.
