Google Pixel 3XL is available to buy before its launch

Google is getting ready to unveil its latest flagship next Tuesday. But the Pixel 3 is already being sold by a retailer in Hong Kong. And even Engadget got its hands-on to the Pixel 3 XL.

Engadget editor Richard Lai obtained the device from a Hong Kong retailer, and it appears to be the real thing. The phone has been thoroughly leaked in the lead up its launch, showing off the screen, colors, wireless charging capabilities, cameras, and more. Richard Lai reviews the device and it seems to have same looks what we have seen in the earlier rumours of the device.


The Pixel 3 XL in question has 6.3-inch screen, has 128 GB of space, and that the screen looks good on a sunny day. The video also runs through the phone’s gestures and some of the specs: it uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset, only has 4 GB of RAM (he speculates that there might be a higher-end version with a big more) and 3,732 3,732 mAh battery.

Engadget also checks the device camera and got to know that it has a 12.2-megapixel main camera, as well as a pair of 8-megapixel front-facing cameras, which allows it to take extra-wide shots.

Google will hold its Pixel 3 event on Tuesday, October 9th, starting at 11AM ET.
