Pixel Watch 3 renders emerge, the larger, most rumored variant now surfaces once & for all.


  • The first renders of the Pixel Watch 3 XL surface again, thanks to OnLeaks.
  • The device shows up with a white strap brand and stainless steel build.
  • The upcoming smartwatch will likely have a bigger display and larger body than the Pixel Watch 3.

Recently, the first renders of Google's upcoming smartwatch, the Pixel Watch 3, surfaced online, suggesting little to no changes in the design. This is likely because Google is preparing to develop another new smartwatch to accompany the new watch. The first images of the new smartwatch, tentatively called the "Pixel Watch 3 XL", have surfaced online for the first time.

The leak once again comes from Steve Hemmerstoffer, popularly known as OnLeaks, who published renders of the Pixel Watch 3 earlier this week. Informant has teamed up with Android Headlines to bring you the highly-anticipated renders of the Pixel Watch 3 XL.

The design of the Pixel Watch 3 XL doesn't look too different from the renders of the Pixel Watch 3, which looks very similar to the previous generation Pixel Watch 2.

Paired with some sort of white strap, the Watch 3 XL appears to feature the same seamless curved glass design in a steel frame supported by a digital crown. This will help navigate the smartwatch's Wear OS interface, while the button on top will likely launch Google Assistant, similar to older Pixel Watch models.

The publication also revealed the expected specifications of the Pixel Watch 3 XL, which include a 1.45-inch display, slightly larger than the Pixel Watch 3, which will feature a 1.2-inch display like its predecessor.

As the name suggests, the Watch 3 XL may be thicker with a case thickness of 13.89 mm. It will also measure 45mm x 45mm, suggesting that it will be an overall larger smartwatch. This could also mean that Google will opt for a larger battery capacity and possibly additional sensors to track health monitoring activities.

Overall, it is encouraging to see the Pixel Watch 3 XL in live renders instead of just hearing about it in rumors, which previously suggested it would join the Pixel smartphone lineup under the name Pixel Watch 3 Pro. However, Google's strategy seems to be different, going the old-school route and naming its upcoming smartwatch similar to older Pixel smartphones such as the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
