Google Pixel 3 XL smiles for the camera

The channel posted images and video of a pre-release Pixel 3 XL unboxing, including information about specs, how the notch works, and in-box accessories.

Samsung may just be about to pull the veil off the Galaxy Note 9, but there's another Android heavyweight waiting in the wings. Given that the handset is due to be unveiled by Google in early October and will go on sale after that, the Pixel 3 XL leak train has started way ahead of time. The new leaked pictures don't really show off anything new about the device, apart from the new USB-C earbuds that will come with the device itself. There is a charging brick and cable along with an USB Type-C to 3.5mm adapter. This box, however, included the fabled pair of wired USB-C headphones, previously absent in the Pixel 2 and 2 XL box despite certain packaging materials suggesting they should have been included. A resolution of 1440x2960 with a pixel density of 494 is also stated, and there's further confirmation that the device will have just 4GB of RAM. The back of the phone looks similar to that of the Pixel 2 XL though, with a metal and glass cover and a single-lens camera. This is the first prototype we've seen with the final "G" Google logo. That'd indicate that we're running a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 here - which is right on the mark for what this smartphone's been rumored to run for the past several weeks.

Apart from the Google Pixel 3 XL, there is also a smaller Pixel 3.

As well as confirming the notch and showing off the rear of the phone again, the pictures also show that Google has again gone for a colour accent on the power button.
