Google's Pixel 3 XL Leaks in All Its Glory

Adjust Comment Print

We've been seeing the upcoming and oft-rumored Pixel 3 XL from Google leak out over the last several weeks, most recently with news revealing a possible launch date for the upcoming flagship handset.

Google released Android Pie on Monday, and we know that the new version of the OS supports phones with notches. While showing the front and rear of the device, one of the leaked images also shows Pixel Bud-like wired USB-C earbuds that will supposedly come bundled with the Pixel 3. Previously leaked images of the Pixel 3 have also shown a notch.

If you're anxious that Google might change its mind about including the hated notch on its rumoured Pixel 3 smartphone, don't be: You're still getting that awful notch, if this alleged unboxing of a Pixel 3 XL is the real deal.

Talking about the other major specs, Pixel 3 will feature a 2960×1440 display with a pixel density of 494-let's hope that it turns out to be a lot better than Pixel 2's display, which was the phone's weakest point. This is the first prototype we've seen with the final "G" Google logo.

On Tuesday, masked security operatives were seen blocking access to the parliament building in the capital Abuja. It is not clear if the meeting scheduled for Tuesday afternoon will still hold after today's turn of events.

Google isn't changing much about the design on the back of the phone. The phone has a notch on top of the screen and a chin at the bottom.

But there's still only a single-lens camera on the back with Google seemingly happy to stick with software trickery to optimize pictures rather than adding hardware. The Pixel 3 XL, meanwhile, may boast a light green power button instead.

Via the device menu, we see that the Pixel 3 XL has an 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 3.46GB (?) of RAM. You're just asking for the phone to get remotely wiped.
