As per a new report, Google is developing the Pixel 3 devices completely in-house, in partnership with FIH Mobile, a subsidiary of Foxconn.

Google is working on two new Pixel smartphones as well as an AI-infused upgrade to Android.

It also seems that Google is imitating most manufacturers by reducing the size of the phones' bezels, which appear noticeably smaller than those found on their predecessors.

Google plans to release two new smartphones this year, the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL, according to a report from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman.

Both models will actually include an upgraded, single-lens cameras on the back.

Google's Pixel smartphones are widely regarded as some of the best Android-based devices, but they continue to lag far behind Apple Inc.'s iPhone and products from Samsung Electronics Co.in sales and market share.

Moto Z3 Play launch event may be coming in just two weeks
It's noteworthy that the original G6 Plus launched with 4GB of RAM and a lower-placed Snapdragon 630 processor. The two devices have been launched in Sao Paulo, Brazil last month, alongside another variant Moto G6 Plus .

But this isn't the only source of Pixel 3 news, as leaker I Ice universe has also posted on Weibo (a Chinese microblogging site), claiming that LG Display will be supplying OLED panels with notches to Google smartphones.

Shortly after the phone's release, users began complaining of a blue tint when viewed at an angle, which wasn't exclusive to all users and wasn't addressed in a fix by Google.

According to people familiar with the current state of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL development, Google will hedge its bets on screen shape. While the latest iPhones include dual cameras to offer a bokeh effect in photos, Google's phones create this same effect by using a single lens and with special software.

That notch, as we've seen on other handsets like the iPhone X, OnePlus 6, and LG G7 ThinQ, will be used to accommodate the front-facing sensors and such that, for the moment, there's no other place for in a "bezelless" design.

With the announcement of Android P supporting screen notches, it might not surprise anyone that Google may, itself, incorporate the popular display cutout in their own phones.
