It's quite possible this "unboxing" is simply a dummy model placed in the trappings of a Google Pixel 2 XL. Looking at the front of the device we can see an iPhone X-like notch which appears to house two cameras.
If you're anxious that Google might change its mind about including the hated notch on its rumoured Pixel 3 smartphone, don't be: You're still getting that bad notch, if this alleged unboxing of a Pixel 3 XL is the real deal. On Wednesday, several high quality photographs of Google's upcoming flagship smartphone from blogger Ivan Luchkov were shared by Mobiltelefon.ru, 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.
Photos and video of what appears to be a production unit Google Pixel 3 XL have been leaked online, reports AndroidPolice.
The back shows the usual single camera setup and fingerprint reader.
What do you think about the Pixel 3 XL and its XL sized notched display up front? But does the notch feel a bit tall to anyone else?
In the video you'll see most of the concentration on the taking out of the contents of the box.
Although we initially expected Google to start deploying Android 9.0 Pie on August 20, the search giant decided that stealing the show from Samsung is the best course of action. It's so large that it stretches out the status bar, making it thicker than normal, just like the Essential phone. And according to this, the device will only have 4GB of RAM.
In the box, we see a pair of ear buds that share a similar design to Google's Pixel Buds, but they are wired (with USB-C) and lack the "G" logo on the outside. That's definitely a nice improvement from last year's Pixel 2 devices, where you'd get a USB-C/3.5mm adapter for the earphones.
