New Pixel 3 XL hands-on reveals even more details: 6.7" screen, 3,430 mAh battery

Vlad, 10 August 2018

Although it's still almost two months away from becoming official, Google's Pixel 3 XL just can't stop leaking. Following a video unboxing, the same Russian tech blogger who somehow managed to get a pre-production unit is now back with a hands-on video of the phone. The pictures below are all extracted from that (since the video is on Telegram and only available as a download).

Here's the nitty gritty. The Pixel 3 XL will have a 6.7-inch 1440x2960 touchscreen, which is pretty huge even by today's notched standards. The phone will be powered by a 3,430 mAh battery, which seems rather worrying given that big display it has to power (and devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note9 shipping with much larger cells, and the Pixel 2 XL from last year actually having a marginally bigger one too).

Google's next flagship will have a single 12 MP camera on the rear, and an 8 MP snapper for selfies. In terms of resolution alone, that setup is identical to the one found in its predecessor, but let's not judge this book by its cover - the sensors could be larger, with bigger pixels, more features, and so on.

Pixel 3 XL spec details

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC will run the show, and the base model Pixel 3 XL will get 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The Always-on Display function present in this phone has wallpaper support as you can see from one of the images, and this might be exclusive to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

Should have been a 4200mah battery
