Using an unannounced phone on public transport is a sure-fire way to get it leaked, as evidenced here, because having already been photographed on a Toronto streetcar, a phone which appears to be the Pixel 3 XL has now been snapped on the Toronto subway.
Shared by MobileSyrup, the images don’t really show us anything new, as at this point the Pixel 3 XL has been quite extensively leaked, but they give us another look at various details, including the huge notch and sizable bottom bezel.
On a more positive note though this looks to really be an edge-to-edge screen at the sides, with basically no bezel at all on the left or right edge.
A reason for being
And the notch and bezel, while large, do serve a purpose, as you can see a dual-lens front-facing camera in the notch and while not super visible in these pictures, we know from earlier leaks that the Pixel 3 XL likely has a speaker in the bottom bezel.
We can also see the back of the phone, complete with a two-tone design like the Pixel 2 range and a single-lens camera.
Of course we can’t be sure that this is the Pixel 3 XL, but based on other leaks it certainly looks like it. We should know for sure before too long, as the Pixel 3 XL and standard Pixel 3 are both likely to land in early October.
