Google Pixel 3 XL Clearly White leaks in new unboxing video

Photos and video of what appears to be a production unit Google Pixel 3 XL have been leaked online, reports AndroidPolice. We do have photos of it, however.

The Android 9 Pie release is the proof in the proverbial pudding that Android as an operating system has hit its stride. The Pixel 3 XL, meanwhile, may boast a light green power button instead. You're just asking for the phone to get remotely wiped. These specs were further backed up by a separate leak on Tuesday from MySmartPrice, which points to a benchmark listing for the Pixel 3 XL from Chinese database Master Lu. On the front, it still looks like there are two front-facing cameras; on the back, there seems to be a two-tone all-glass design, a fingerprint reader, and a single camera. But does the notch feel a bit tall to anyone else? It's so large that it stretches out the status bar, making it thicker than normal, just like the Essential phone. That'd indicate that we're running a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 here - which is right on the mark for what this smartphone's been rumored to run for the past several weeks. In the picture, you can see Android 9 Pie's gesture navigation is turned on, which Google recently told Android Central would be the default for Pixels going forward. From the unboxing video (mirrored above from a Russian tech blogger's Telegram account) and the additional images we can see that the Google Pixel 3 XL box contains the previously noted Pixel Buds-style USB-C earphones, a 3.5mm adaptor, a USB adapter, and a USB-C cable. But it's not as if Google has much reason to change what the device comes with.
