The Pixel 3 XL is on track for an overhaul this fall.

That makeover may include a monstrously-large display if the latest rumor stands up to scrutiny.

Think the Galaxy Note 9’s 6.4-inch display is big? Could Google be planning to top this with a 6.7-inch screen? With a gigantic notch, to match?

Yes, if you can believe the latest slew of reports — with the latest update on August 10 — that point to a Ukrainian YouTuber who posted a video (bottom, courtesy of Android Police).

The Antutu app run in the video spits out a bunch of specs — as Android Police points out — including the 6.7 inch display. That dwarfs the 6-inch display on the Pixel 2 XL.

Not everyone is taking this as gospel, however. “Alleged specs of Google Pixel 3 XL will have you laughing out loud” says Android Authority, adding: “If the video is legit…the display is 6.7-inches… with a comically gigantic notch and chin.”

A few more things worth noting include a battery capacity of 3,430 mAh, slightly downsized from the 3,520 mAh cell battery in the Pixel 2 XL. A single rear 12.2 MP camera, similar to the current XL.

And about that large notch:

Curiously, there are three front cameras noted, all 8.1MP. We can only see two front cams, which we assume have to do with providing a face unlock function to rival the iPhone X. The third could be due to a reporting error by the Antutu app, or maybe it’s some sort of virtual/sub sensor — right now, we can’t be sure.

I asked Google for comment and will update if I hear back.
