Following which, Google Pixel 3 XL unboxing videos started surfacing on YouTube. Fast forward to today, Engadget has also managed to get hold of an “unreleased version” of the Pixel 3 XL in Hong Kong.
Richard Lai, an Engadget editor, obtained the device from a Hong Kong retailer who is, apparently, selling Google Pixel 3 XL before its official release. Richard also put up an early hands-on of the device, confirming all the specification leaks about the device.
For instance, the Google Pixel 3 XL has a deep and ugly notch (obviously!), it comes with 4 GB RAM and Snapdragon 845 chipset. The device comes with 3,732mAh battery and 6.3-inch OLED panel which “looks good on a sunny day.”
The Engadget editor also mentions the single 12.2MP rear camera and dual 8MP front-facing camera on the Pixel device. The Google Pixel 3 XL comes with revamped Camera app where you can set three different focal lengths settings. Richard starts with the wide-angle angle shot and takes it all way to the close-up shot.
Of course, all the Google Pixel 3 devices available in the market, are the pre-released version of the final device. With that being said, we don’t expect any major change in final Google Pixel 3 version.
Google will hold the Pixel 3 event on Tuesday, October 9th, starting at 11AM ET. Apart from Google Pixel devices, we will witness next-generation Google Chromecast 3, a new Google Pixel Slate, a wireless charging dock for the new Pixel devices, and more.
