After examining the Pixel 3's construction which included massive amounts of glue for the rear glass panel, iFixit gave Google's new flagship a poor repairability score of 4 out of 10.

Titan M likewise brings Protected Confirmation on Android 9, which is an API designed for protecting "the most security-critical operations", according to Google. The new Titan M is built using the same type of technology that Google uses to secure its data servers, which makes it particularly robust.

"Here are a few ways Titan M protects your phone", Xin explains in the post.

Google launched Digital Wellbeing to help Android users understand how to use their phones. Specifically, Titan M stores the last known safe Android version and prevents "bad actors" from moving your device back to run on an older, potentially vulnerable, version of Android behind your back. This prevents attackers from changing the security firmware without first unlocking your device. This comes alongside the fact that the company ditched LG and favour Samsung for offering a larger, 6.3-inch QHD+ (1440x2960 pixels) flexible OLED display on the Pixel 3 XL.

Another key point: The Pixel 3 also uses the chip to protect third-party apps and secure sensitive transactions.

Airtel Online Store has made is easier for customers to own the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3XL range.

Wrapping up its details, Google also says that it created Titan M with "insider attack resistance", namely the chip's firmware can't be updated without the device's passcode.

The 64GB variant of the Google Pixel 3 can be purchased at a down payment of Rs 17,000 amd EMI for 18 months at Rs 3,499 per month.
