Google may join the phone-notch bandwagon.

According to Bloomberg, one of Google’s next marquee phones may flaunt a black cutout on the top of its screen. That means the Pixel 3 XL, as it’s expected to be called, will join the likes of the iPhone X, LG G7, OnePlus 6 and a few other phones that have a notch.

In addition, the phone is anticipated to have an edge-to-edge screen with only a bottom bezel. Citing “people familiar with the matter,” Bloomberg also reports that the notch will hold two front-facing cameras.

As for the Pixel’s smaller counterpart, which will likely go by the name Pixel 3, it’s reported to have neither a notch or an edge-to-edge design.
