Google Pixel 3 XL leak shows notch and USB-C headphones


It's unusual that a boxed, production model Google Pixel 3 XL has been leaked so far in advance of the expected launch date, which is thought to be 4 October, but it's not beyond the realms of possibility. And it has a single camera on the back.

That's because they are hands-on shots of an alleged full production model of the phone and if not genuine, someone has gone to an terrible lot of trouble to make them look that way. These devices will likely roll with the newest in new Android, Android 9 Pie, an operating system that's also just been released. On Wednesday, several high quality photographs of Google's upcoming flagship smartphone from blogger Ivan Luchkov were shared by, giving us our first clear look at the phone being taken out of its retail packaging, confirming all of the leaks about its brand new design. If you've seen the previous pictures showing the "Clearly White" Pixel 3 XL that leaked last week, you'll notice that the new ones come in line with what we knew so far.

In addition, we can now see that the power button is a different color from the rest of the phone after all, only it's a light shade of green/blue rather than orange like we'd previously seen on prototype models. It has an Adreno 630 GPU and runs Android 9.

Google is expected to announce the Pixel 3 this fall. It's so large that it stretches out the status bar, making it thicker than normal, just like the Essential phone. It also shows that there will be 4GB of RAM. But it's not as if Google has much reason to change what the device comes with.
