The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have probably been the worst kept secret of 2018.
Serena 'out of line' but both sides share blame, says King
Williams' defeat came after she was issued a code violation for receiving coaching, a common practice in the sport. Rogers is obviously no stranger to criticism, but even he thinks Knight went too far in this case.
We all know that "controlled" leaks are a thing - whereby a company will actively leak upcoming products or details about the products in a controlled manner in order to build hype around it prior to the release.
Rumors around the upcoming Google Pixel phones are as common as gossip on Hollywood stars. While arguably Google doesn't need to do this and has plenty of interest in its Pixel devices, a little bit of extra exposure wouldn't hurt.
By comparison the current 6-inch Pixel 2 XL has slim top and bottom bezels with a camera shooter at top and speakers at top and bottom, introductory price at $849. The Lyft driver who found the Pixel 3 XL shared images of it with Android Police, who confirmed that it appeared to be a pre-production unit. The devices, especially the Pixel 3 XL have been heavily leaked and has even seen a full unboxing video done before it's even launched. The leaks continued when the Pixel 3 XL was spotted on Toronto's rail system, not once but twice.
The theory is based on the fact that various YouTubers, who have been supplied the device in question, have been contacted directly by Google to ask for permission to use their Pixel 3 XL videos, many of which complain about the phone's prominent notch saying that it is ugly. Interestingly, the phone is likely to stick with a single camera shooter on the back, similar to the Pixel 2 XL.
