Pixel 3 to have these features after all

Without doubt, the thing most will point to here is that notch, something that has been a polarizing point ever since the iPhone X launched late previous year and has continued to divide people even as just about every Android phone maker has followed suit. Even before the second-gen Pixel 2 phone's official launch, it was sighted on FCC with Android 8.0.1 Oreo and Active Edge. If you're not satisfied, there is the Edge Sense Plus app that will let you customize the Pixel 2 Active Edge. In one of the photos featured in the piece, we find a table of Pixel 2 prototypes with some sensitive logomarks censored, presumably to keep prototype securities hidden. These are the alleged codenames for the Pixel 3 smartphones.

HTC introduced the squeeze gesture feature on the U11, which allows you to squeeze the sides of the smartphone to carry out different functions. It's not as customizable. XDA-Developers managed to get their hands on what appears to be a prototype for the Pixel 3 XL and the photos shows the notch on the top along with a chin at the bottom. The feature should already be expected but you know it's not always the case with Google. The interface has been continually cleaned up with more new features and, most importantly, the app launched in the Play Store. The Active Edge could be removed the same way Google removed the headphone jack from the Pixel 2 line even when it was known to criticize Apple when such was removed from iPhone. The Google Pixel 3 is almost guaranteed to come with a notch. It would have been easier to guess the presence of the Active Edge if HTC is working on it. While Google's earlier Nexus devices had wireless charging built in, it's been missing from the more recent Pixel phones. This is revealed by the fact that the source code has several mentions of wireless chargers, combined with the preface com.google instead of com.android.
