Google is linking it with the Google Pixel 3 XL. For now we can not blame them for anything officially because there is no image or official teaser, but if the Screen protectors that circulate through the network are confirmed, the Pixel 3 XL would use a notch. Now we add a little more fuel to the fire with a filtration from China, and that ensures that LG will manufacture the screen of the Google Pixel 3 XL .
To understand the importance of this rumor and the nervousness it is capable of generating, we must remember that the Google Pixel 2 XL It was a practically perfect smartphone but it had its main weakness on its screen. That’s why this new filtration makes us think about the reasons that have led Google to repeat supplier, although in honor of the truth, LG is a large manufacturer of panels and in a year there is room to improve many things.
The Goggle Pixel 2 XL used an AMOLED panel with a very poor calibration, and although Google improved the control and calibration of the panel as the weeks passed, this fact caused many users to discard the purchase of the device.
Therefore, both LG and Google are playing a lot with this alleged decision, which has been filtered by one Ice Universe , a well-known filtering of the Chinese social network Weibo.
For now nothing has been said about the panel used in the “normal” Google Pixel 3, so it could be in the hands of another manufacturer or fall back into the hands of Koreans.
It would be weird, from then on, for Google to repeat the same error twice, and if we take into account that it has just been presented LG V35 ThinQ With an AMOLED panel that points to very good reviews, LG should not have too much trouble to supply a quality panel to Google, unless the notch creates a problem for them.
The photo that we just showed you not only has the importance of telling us who will supply the panels to Google, but also comes loaded with controversy confirming the existence of a notch which until recently was doubted its veracity.
So, it seems that Google is definitely linked to the fashion of the notch, and that despite the “haters” and users who look at it with suspicion, there will be nothing we can do to avoid it.
Making an LCD panel with notch costs almost the same as making an OLED, so making a notched OLED raises the price up to 25% according to some reports. This means that the screen of the Google Pixel 3 XL could be one of the most expensive in the market, since so far only Huawei with its P20 Pro had made use of these two technologies, with the permission of the iPhone X Of course, and none of those two smartphones is exactly cheap.
Everything indicates that the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be presented in the Google Hardware Event 2018 that will arrive in autumn, so we will still have to wait a few months to get to know them in depth, not to have new information, which we are sure will not be long in coming.
