[Update: Maybe not] The Pixel 3 will only have gesture navigation, with no option for standard nav buttons

As we all know by now, Google's implementation of gesture navigation is pretty lackluster. Given that it still takes up the same amount of space as the regular nav bar, it doesn't have any real benefits and just makes things confusing. You'll probably be disappointed to hear that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will ship with gesture navigation, and there won't be an option to use the standard three-button layout that's been part of Android for years.

Purported Google Pixel 3 XL leaks in 'Clearly White'

For the last two years, the Pixel line has been released in mid-to-late October. We're less than three months away from that at this point, so it makes sense that we're starting to see some more Pixel 3 leaks.

Pixel 3 factory CAD renders give 360-degree look at what might be Google's next phones

Every passing day (and new Android P build) brings us a bit closer to Google's next Pixel. Earlier this month we got to see a few photos of what looks like a real Pixel 3 XL in the wild, and just a bit later our friends at 9to5Google spotted some fun concept renders that tried to approximate that look with a few different colors.

[Update: More images from all angles] Is this the Pixel 3 XL? Two photos of what sure looks like Google's next phone

Did Google's next smartphone just get outed on a random XDA Forums post? Because that's sure what it looks like just happened. Two images were posted on XDA last night, and well, they do line up with what we know about the Pixel 3 XL so far. The front is a pretty dead-on match for that screen protector leak, and the rear definitely looks like a subtle evolution of the existing phone's design. There appears to be a new sensor to the right of the rear camera module, and the flash has been pushed out slightly to accommodate it.

Google's Pixel 3 could use the same manufacturer as the iPhone (also, there's a notch)

Since days of yore, Google has worked with other OEMs to build its phones. The first set of Pixels was manufactured by HTC; the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, HTC and LG, respectively — not to mention the entire Nexus line. That's seemingly set to change with this year's pair, though: Google could be partnering with iPhone-building Taiwanese firm Foxconn to manufacture the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
