The Pixel 3 family is likely still weeks away from being “officially” unveiled, but a constant stream of leaks has given us excellent looks at the upcoming Android 9 Pie flagships. In particular, the Pixel 3 XL has been especially prone to posing for the camera.
The Pixel 3 XL has leaked once again, this time in a high-quality unboxing video that has been posted to YouTube. In the Russian video, we see that the Pixel 3 XL comes with a pair of Pixel Buds-style headphones that attach to the bottom-mounted USB-C port. Also in the box are a USB-C to USB-C adapter, USB-C to 3.5mm adapter, a USB-C to USB-A adapter and a wall plug.
The video gives a good look at the Pixel 3 XL from all angles, including closeups of its dual, front-firing speakers and the large notch at the top of the display. There looks like what appears to be two cameras up front flanking the top speaker, although it’s possible that one may be used for facial recognition. On the back, there’s a familiar single camera, LED flash and center-mounted fingerprint sensor.
Towards the end of the video, you can see some sample photos taken from the selfie camera. Overall, it’s a good early look at what you can expect when Google finally gets around to unveiling the smartphone.
From our previous coverage, we’ve learned that the Pixel 3 XL has a 6.2-inch OLED display with a 1440×2960 resolution. Without question, there will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor running the show with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM (we haven’t been able to lock this spec… yet). Recently, we learned that the battery is actually downsized slightly, falling from 3,520 mAh in the Pixel 2 XL to 3,430 mAh in an effort to make the chassis thinner.
The Pixel 3 family will support wireless charging, as confirmed by a recent video that leaked via Twitter. Google will even have its own first-party wireless charger called the Pixel Stand that will be sold alongside the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
Stay tuned for the next [inevitable] flood of Pixel 3 leaks…
