Google won’t announce the Pixel 3 XL until October but when it does, the only thing we won’t already know by then will be the price. Over the past few weeks, the Pixel 3 XL has leaked in various forms from live shots to full unboxing videos and even camera comparisons with the Samsung Galaxy Note9 and Huawei P20 Pro. Now, a new unboxing video has surfaced online and it is a higher quality than the one that leaked weeks ago.
The video was posted by Russsian YouTube channel In Digi. The Pixel 3 XL comes in a white box devoid of any Pixel or Google branding. The version in the box is pure white with black front bezels.
Included in the box is a pair of wired earphones which have the same design as the wireless Pixel Earbuds from last year. There is a USB-C charging/data cable, a 3.5mm to USB-C cable, and a USB-A to USB-C dongle all in white included in the box. There is also a charging adapter in the box.
The Pixel 3 XL has a thick lower bezel which is home to one of the front-stereo stereo facing speakers. There are no bezels on the sides and at the top, but there is a large tub-like notch which houses the second speaker and two front-facing cameras.
Just like the Panda White Google Pixel 2 XL, the Pure White Pixel 3 XL has a colored power button but instead of orange like its predecessor’s, it is mint green. The volume rocker is also on the right directly below the power button.
Google hasn’t really changed the design on the back. The main change is that the whole of the back is now covered in glass, not just the top part where the camera and LED flash are located. This shouldn’t be surprising since the Pixel 3 XL supports wireless charging. However, the camera half has a different shade of white to give the phone that two-tone finish.
As we can see in the rest of the video, the Pixel 3 XL is big, and unless you have really large hands, using this device with one hand for more than a few minutes doesn’t look comfortable. The video also confirms the Google Pixel 3 XL is running Android 9 Pie out of the box and also shows off the camera prowess.
The Google Pixel 3 XL will come with a 6.71-inch QHD+ display, a Snapdragon 845 processor, and 4GB of RAM. It will also have a 3430mAh battery, and a single 12MP rear camera.
