Unlike Pixel 3, the Pixel 3XL comes with a notched display to accommodate the bigger screen size. Its battery is expected to be relatively stronger too, despite the larger screen size and hence greater power consumption. There’s a price difference of $100 flat between the two devices despite very few differences.
