IMHO one front-facing camera should be more than enough

I'd get a 4XL if this design language remains!

Anonymous, 15 Mar 2019Yeah, that was embarrassing. Had actual reviews up, before ... moreIdk why Google decided to just troll us with that. I was expecting something huge, something revolutionary, and all we got was a giant a** chin (I know there's a stereo speaker there) and a gigantic notch. Same thing will happen this year. How can Google fix their line of phones? Two suggestions: MAKE THE PHONES CHEAPER, so the OP 7 has a competition, and make it actually worth it. Second, STOP intentionally leaking. Yes, intentionally.

Looks smart design I like it. The problem on Pixel 3XL what led me to go for P20 Pro. Battery life and camera. But on the other the Pixel is awesome for latest updates. Will what its like with official release. Please Google put in a decent battery and stunning camera.

I have to say I'm not totally hating the overall design even if it's just a mockup render, I'm okay with the punch-hole camera, the two speaker slits, which hopefully delivers stereo audio, and the uniform bezel design looks fantastic. The rest of the hardware specs should be improved too like more RAM and ROM, and Google should make good use of its new secondary camera.

I can't wait for the regular/non-XL model with design similar to S10e. Just a single camera hole on the front, and compact dimensions! I hope Google can deliver what Sony refused to this year. #fingerscrossed

It says Phone Arena on the pictures.

Why forgo the selfie cam for a full screen, when you can have both? There are so many solutions like manual and mechanical sliders, dual displays etc.

Thicker bezel, notch, cutout... I'd rather have no front camera at all. Make it an ultra-limited edition phone, double the price to make up for low sales, I don't care. I'll buy a modern smartphone without a front facing camera. Not putting the very thing that prevents you from having a full screen display is the easiest way to have a full screen display.

I'm interested in the OnePlus 7 pop out camera as the most elegant front facing camera solution, so far.

Let's hope Samsung makes headway in the underscreen camera for next year.

WTH is Google doing???

Damn! Looks cool and hot and all. But the punch hole camera module looks a bit big than the Samsung Galaxy S10+. If Google manages to make it small, this is gonna be the one to beat.

ahahaahahaha..

Congratulations Google, you won the ugliest phone of the year for the last four years XD

It is possible to hide the cut-out by using transparent OLED with a polarizer film between the screen and the camera module.
The polarizer film becomes transparent and let in light when the camera is in use.
The polarizer remains opaque when camera is not in use, this allows the transparent OLED to behave just like standard OLED and the camera is hidden from view.
Bonus security points because you know when camera is in use.
