Google's Pixel 3 XL Leaks in All Its Glory

The leaked device was remotely erased, so we didn't really get to see much of the software, or how Android Pie looks on this thing.

Google has done away with the chunky bezel at the top of the screen for the Pixel 3 XL, but it has replaced it with a rather large notch that takes a sizable chunk out of the display.

The back of the Pixel 3 XL is similar to the back of the Pixel 2 XL. But by the looks of it, he does most certainly seem to have a Google Pixel 3 XL in the box, has taken this device out of the box, and is now in possession of both the phone and the box - and its other contents, too.

Actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie attend the premiere of "The Normal Heart" in New York, NY, U.S., May 12, 2014. DeJean goes on to state that Jolie would like the court to have Pitt pay her the money she is owed.

Interestingly, the back of the device only has a single camera - the rear dual-camera hardware you'd expect to see in a modern smartphone has been moved to the front of the device instead. I certainly wouldn't choose the Pixel 3 XL over the iPhone X or the many Android handsets that are far more attractive. It has an Adreno 630 GPU and runs Android 9. Late last month, we saw photos of the Google Pixel 3 XL Clearly White model.

Does speedy software updates make up for Google's odd design choices?

What do you think about the Pixel 3 XL and its XL sized notched display up front? It also shows that there will be 4GB of RAM. For now, the OS is "Android 9", although it would not be surprising to see that change to Android 9.1 in time for release-Google usually cooks up a x.1 release specifically for its phones. Surprisingly, Google is including a pair of USB Type-C headphones with a Pixel Buds-like design. In-box accessories can vary from country to country, so if you are that interested in pack-in Google headphones, make sure they come with the version shipping in your territory.
