Predictably, given recent leaks the source is an irreparable one. Ukrainian Technologist @Wylsacom has achieved a pre-release Pixel 3XL, without doubt its authenticity. He has therefore published new images that confirm Pixel 3XL will be a 6.7-inch monster .
The submission can be seen in the reference results Wylsacom has captured (the image below), which shows a massive 6.71-inch screen and 2960 x 1440 native resolution. Interestingly, this combination results in significantly lower pixel density (491 pixels per inch) compared to rivals with similar resolutions, such as 5.8-inch Galaxy S9 (570 ppi), simply because of their smaller displays.
There is also more convincing evidence.
Wylsacom's references show that the Pixel 3XL screen measures 73 x 154 mm, almost the same as the entire Pixel 2XL (76 x 157mm). Some simple maths reveal a triangle with these dimensions having a diagonal of 6.78 inches, but expect the extra 0.07 inches to be shaved as Pixel 3XL has curved corners.
Less partially, we also know Pixel 3XL definitely has wireless charging . Processing reports Google lost a group of Pixel 3 phones around Ukraine, Moscow-based techwriter @khoroshev has posted a video which shows that Pixel 3XL will be compatible with Qi chargers. Fortunately, the Russian Technological Page Rozetked has achieved a prototype and issued this.
Anyway, while the fate of Google's lost pixels will die, it's less certain whether customers will come across the company's decision to fit a 6.7-inch screen. The news has also refocused the attention of Pixel 3XL's battery, which appears roughly underpowered for a phone as big.
In Google's defense, Samsung will supersize the Galaxy S10 in early 2019, and in September, Apple will launch a heavily enlarged iPhone X . But these screens are still smaller and they will be surrounded by much thinner brackets compared to Pixel 3XLs deep hack and chop .
After making the best phone until 2017 the question must be asked: Has Google gone too far?
