Case for Pixel 3 XL supports the notch rumors, has single camera hole on the back

Theres mounting evidence that the Google Pixel 3 XL will have a notch on the front and will not have a dual camera on the back. The latest leak joins live photos (and more) and a screen protector. This time its a render of a case that includes an image of the front as well.

The good news is that the arrival of the notch is not the end of the front-firing stereo speakers. And its not a particularly wide notch either (by the way, Android P natively supports notches). Early rumors suggest that the screen diagonal will be 6.2 (up from 6.0 in the 2 XL thanks to the notch).

Around the back, theres a single hole for the camera (and another for flash + laser AF), plus a hole for the fingerprint reader (so dont expect an under display reader). In fact, if you look at the live shots linked above, youd be hard pressed to recognize that this isnt a Pixel 2 XL from the back.

If you want a notch-less Pixel, then the Pixel 3 is your option or perhaps the Snapdragon 710-powered Pixel Lite expected early next year. And if you were excited to see Google image processing applied to a dual camera setup… well, maybe next year.
