Google will officiallyunveil its Pixel 3at an event next Tuesday, but the device has already been thoroughly leaked in the last couple of weeks. Now, it appears that a Hong Kong retailer has already begun to sell the device, according toEngadget,which got its hands on a Pixel 3 XL.
Engadgeteditor Richard Lai obtained the device from a Hong Kong retailer, and it appears to be the real thing. Thephone has been thoroughly leakedin the lead up its launch, showing off the screen, colors, wireless charging capabilities, cameras, and more. Lai put together a video review of the phone, noting that the device he has in hand matches up with the leaks that we’ve seen. The Pixel 3 XL in question has a 6.3-inch screen, 128GB of storage space, and Lai says 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 4GB of RAM (he speculates that there might be a higher-end version with a bit more) and a 3,732mAh battery.
Engadgetalso checks out the phone’s cameras, finding 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.
