Though we don’t expect to see the rumored Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL introduced officially until this fall, we may have gotten a sneak preview from a Ukrainian Telegram user.
As reported by Android Police, Telegram user @LuchkovCH has posted an extensive series of photos (and a brief unboxing video) of what they say is a Pixel 3 XL final production unit. CNET has not independently confirmed the authenticity of any of these photos or videos, and Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The new photos show a phone that looks very similar to the purported Pixel 3 XL in photos posted to the XDA Developers forum in early June. Both sets of images show a white handset with a significant iPhone X-style notch on the front display.
The new images show off some additional details, however, including a wired power adapter and charging cable. Previously, XDA Developers found evidence in the second beta of Android P that pointed to support for wireless charging, so the new leak muddies those waters. Another oddity is the USB-C to 3.5mm headphone adapter shown in one of the new photos; a wired version of Google’s Pixel Buds would be something new.
Other specs listed on the phone’s screen include the Android 9 operating system, an octacore Qualcomm processor, an Adreno 630 GPU and a display with a 2,960×1,440-pixel resolution. For the most part, the design and specs in the new photos corroborate rumors we’ve seen previously.
