Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are expected to be the first smartphones that would run Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. The models have already appeared severally in leaks and that isn’t likely to end until Google official lift the veil covering the models on October 9. Before that happens, the Pixel 3 XL live photo has once again appeared online and this time around it is a black coloured variant.
The model was reportedly spotted by an unnamed drive for Lyft, a ridesharing outfit, at the back of his car not long after dropping off some passengers. This is likely a pre-production unit and could be different from the final launch units but with the rate at wish the next-gen Google Pixel models have appeared in leaked photos and videos, we doubt if there is much surprise on the design aspect. The present leaked unit is similar to the ones we have seen in the past but the smartphone appears to have a transparent protective cover on. It retains the wide notch at the top as well as a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The device also comes with a single rear camera which is all but confirmed.
The Pixel 3 XL is expected to pack a 6.2-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels and 494ppi while the Pixel 3 will have a 5.5-inch display. Both models will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM. At the rear, there is a single 12MP sensor while selfies are taken care of by an 8MP shooter. The device will also get its juice from a 3,430mAh battery.
