Google Pixel 3 XL leaked photos show production hardware and wired USB-C Pixel Buds

As Google prepares to launch their upcoming flagship, the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, a lot of rumours and leaks are being passed on in the tech world. The new leaked photos of what the leaker is calling Pixel 3 XL has been shared online and the phone actually comes with a bunch of new things. These new leaks also show a lot of the device asthetics. Let us look at the photos and see what these photos have to say about the upcoming Pixel smartphone. We have already covered a bunch of things about the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL launch, things like codenames etc. are something we have already confirmed but these leaked photos shed more light at what the final version of Pixel 3 XL can be.

In the box

The leaked unboxing video of the Google Pixel 3 XL shows a bunch of things that Google might be including in the box. You find a charging brick and cable, a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter, and also a pair of wired USB Type-C headphones which is quite surprising. Other contents include all the documentation for the phone and warranty related information. The wired USB Type-C earphones are quite surprising since Google didn’t supply any earphones with the last pixels in the box. It will be fun to see if these earphones also support Google Assistant.

Pixel 3 XL – Leaked Photos Overview

Pixel 3 XL Leaked Photo - Front

As you can see, the device seems to have a rather huge notch. The notch seems a lot bigger than other phones like the OnePlus 6 and some other phones. You can also see there’s a huge chin at the bottom of the front which houses the speaker grill. The phone seems to have a dual speaker setup in the front which means Google is planning to give a flagship speaker audio experience. The display also seems rather large it also seems to have a 2.5D curved glass over the display.

The back of the phone seems very basic and comes and it follows the same single camera suite that the Pixel 2 had to offer. The fingerprint sensor is at its usual position just like it was in the preview generation of Pixel. Honestly, the design of the phone seems a little to basic but hopefully this will look better in real life than it looks right now.

Are these photos real?

They most probably are and as the leaker, a Russian tech blogger named Канал Лучкова leaked on his Telegram Channel, the possibility becomes better when he shows all the original Pixel related documentation from the box. As a Pixel fan myself, if these photos are real, then I am disappointed by the Google Pixel team since they didn’t work on an outstanding design. A Pixel is supposed to be the flagship of all Android devices, an example of what Google wants an Android phone to be but the design of the phone just seems something that was put together in a hurry.

But we can only make guesses. The final version of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL can only be confirmed when Google launches it later this year. Fow now, we only know the following things.

  • Google plans to give a pair of wired earphones with the Pixel 3 XL.
  • It has a big notch and a chin.
  • The box contents of the Pixel 3 XL retail box.

But we have much more to look forward to. The Pixel will be launching later this year as the third flagship of the Pixel Lineup.
