Google Pixel 3 XL unboxing video leaked ahead of official launch in October

“The Pixel 3 and 3 XL are likely to rock Snapdragon 845 SoC paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage”

Google is expected to host its 2018 hardware event on October 4th to unveil the next-gen Pixel 3 and 3 XL smartphones. We’re still more than a month away from the launch, but the leaks and rumours about the devices are coming thick and fast. Now, ahead of the launch, a new unboxing video of the successor of Pixel 2 XL (review) has surfaced on YouTube, that reveals the unit in full glory.

The short two-and-a-half minute video shows the retail box of the Pixel 3 XL in all white. Upon lifting the top cover, you’re greeted with the handset placed face-up. The device seems to be the white colour variant of the Pixel 3 XL with the accented lime colour power button. Apart from this, the box also includes a USB Type-C cable, a headphone jack adapter, a USB Type-C to USB Type-A adapter, a European-style wall plug and documentation. Notably, it looks like Google is also bundling a set of wired USB Type-C earbuds with this year’s Pixel smartphones.

Check out the Pixel 3 XL’s unboxing in the video below:

 

After the unboxing, the video shows the close-up shots of the Pixel 3 XL, and it confirms that the handset will have a glass back layered over a metal framing. Once the device is boated, you can see the enormous notch up top and a significant chin with speaker output on it. Last but not the least, the Pixel 3 XL is said to run Android 9 Pie out of the box.

Sadly, the unboxing video hasn’t revealed anything of substance about the Pixel 3 XL on the specs front. However, earlier leaks suggest that the handset could feature a 6.71-inch display with a resolution of 1,440 x 2,960 pixels. It’s likely to employ Snapdragon 845 under the hood, paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB inbuilt storage. While we don’t have the camera specifications, the handset might house a 3,440mAh battery under the hood.

The pricing and availability of the Pixel 3 XL are not known at the moment. However, there are reports that the smartphone is available for sale in the Russian black market for $ 2,000 (~ Rs 1,40,000). We’ll bring more updates about the smartphone and its younger sibling Pixel 3 as and when it’s there, so stay tuned to 91mobiles.
