Only a few days are left to the long-awaited Google’s October hardware event, and yet leaks are coming through. There is a store in Hong Kong that has been selling the Pixel 3 XL at the price tag of HK$15,880 (around $2,030 US). Engagdet borrowed one of the devices to get an early hands-on experience.
More information is not currently available. However, this product is the final retail packaging and software in the box. Inside the box, you will find a pair of USB Type-C earphones, an adapter for headphone jack 3.5 mm, a Type-C data cable, and one 18W charging adapter.
CPU-Z shows that the phone has Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB RAM, a 12.2MP rear camera, dual 8 MP front cameras with one of them being a wide-angle lens, a 2960×1440 OLED screen, and Android 9.0 Pie running on the board. The primary camera records 4K at 30FPS, while the front cameras can go up to maximum 1080p.
We don’t know anything about the software features that will come in the new Pixel 3 XL’s retail version yet. Also, nobody has seen all the colours in the wild yet –for example, the recent leak of ‘Sand’ Pixel.
