Despite the fact that the leaks had brought us a good deal of the technical characteristics of Google Pixel 3 , yesterday the official presentation of the Pixel 3 model left some details in the pipeline. Small technical details that have no place in a presentation, but are of great interest to many users. In these circumstances we could pigeonhole the fact that you want to know where the notification LED on the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL is located .
A question that many can ask given the great utility and acceptance that this type of luminous warnings has . And at a glance we can quickly and concisely know the type of notification we received on our smartphone. It is thus, in part, thanks to the palette of available colors that we can later associate with the different apps and contacts. In this way, when the notification LED lights up in one or another color, we can intuit and even know directly what type of notification it is or the contact that comes from a message.
Notification LED on Pixel 3: where?
An element, therefore, very useful that Google has exploited in the previous two generations of your smartphone. Although available in a very specific section, it was possible to configure these light signals.
However, the third generation of the Pixel forgets the LED notifications because the browser this time has not included in the front of the device. This has been confirmed by the company on Twitter from an answer to a question asked by a user with the doubt.
Hi there. Pixel 3 / 3XL does not come with a notification LED. Feel free to reach out if you have any other questions in the future.

This alternative goes through the Always on display function, which shows information about the system -including notifications- on the model screen, even with the display off. A solution currently embraced by a good number of manufacturers, although everything is said, also keep the LED notification for those who do not wish to make use of this alternative.
And it is that this option affects the overall autonomy of the team, despite the organic nature of the screen since the OLED panels such as the Pixel 3 do not waste energy when it comes to showing the black color, the same that we can find in the lock screen.
