We’ve seen the Google Pixel 3 XL pop up over and over again over the past few weeks. The phone has now gotten exposed yet again in a massive series of leaks, revealing its design, specs, camera samples, retail box, and wireless charging skills.
First up is a bunch of photos obtained by Russian site Wylsacom. It shows off the Pixel 3 XL from all angles, giving us a closer look at the notch up top. The cutout has gotten widely panned, with many calling it downright ugly. It’s considerably deeper than most notches, taking up a significant chunk of screen space.
There’s also a significant amount of chin, but it at least has a reason for existing – front-facing stereo speakers. The About page and AIDA64 screenshot confirm that the Google phone will have last year’s squeezable Active Edge feature, a 3430mAh battery, and a 6.71-inch 1440 x 2960p display.
Google Pixel 3 XL Unboxing
Another Russian website named Rozetked has posted images of the Pixel 3 XL’s box and camera samples. The packaging is quite crowded. Google is going to provide buyers with a USB-C to USB-C cable, USB-C to 3.5mm adapter (since there’s no headphone jack), USB-A to USB-C adapter, and wall charger.
There’s also a pleasant surprise – a pair of what appear to be a wired version of Google’s Pixel Buds, complete with adjustable hoops. The loops are meant to make sure the earphones don’t fall off and comfortably fit inside an ear. The publication has also included a couple of hands-on photos to show just how big the smartphone is.
Based on the images, it doesn’t look like the Pixel 3 XL measures 6.71-inch. Its actual size could be much smaller since there a chance the AIDA app didn’t measure the display properly. As for the camera samples, they look very promising, with high-quality shots taken in different locations and with bokeh effects.

It’s worth noting that Google is still stubbornly resisting the dual-lens trend since the phone only has a single snapper at the back. Rounding of this massive flood of leaks is a video by Maksim Khoroshev which shows the device being unlocked and placed on a wireless charger.
