Usually, with phones leaks, we get a few blurry images or renderings in the months and weeks before a phone’s official announcement. But now a rumoured Pixel 3 XL final production unit has leaked out, just less than two months before Google’s official announcement.
A Ukranian tech blogger by the name of Luchkov has shared some images of the Pixel 3 XL in what appears to be a pre-release version.
The images show that the Pixel 3 XL will indeed have a notched display with a resolution of 1440 x 2960 with a 494 PPI and come in Clearly White. It also has Android 9 Pie, as evident by the new button design.
This leak also confirms that the Pixel 3 XL will be powered an 8-core Qualcomm processor (most likely the Snapdragon 845) with 4GB of RAM and an Adreno 630 GPU.
The Pixel 3 XL seems to retain the single camera instead of dual-lens like other big-screened Android flagships. There is also a power button that is light green. The leak also shows that the phone that the Luchkov has is the 64GB model.
We also see that the Pixel 3 XL will not only come with a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter but also a pair of USB-C wired earbuds. There’s also the USB-C power adapter and cable and a USB-C to USB-A adapter.
There is a chance that what was unboxed by Luchkov, was intended just for Google employees, so it’s possible those wired USB-C earbuds might not come with the final product.
Even though Google hasn’t officially confirmed it but the company is rumoured to unveil the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL along with some other hardware products (such as a Pixel Watch, a Pixelbook 2, and second-gen Pixel Buds) on October 4th, as they have done so the past two years.
