Today is Samsung's great day when Galaxy Note 9 was only made available for pre-order from all US carriers. But by chance, a video on YouTube came on Friday, giving us an expanded preview of Pixel 3 XL, which happens to be a competitor in Note 9, and one of the only other expected phones to be released in the second half of 2018.  The video is almost four minutes long and it has a Pixel 3 XL device that actually works and is turned on. This is the first time we have seen a video surface showing a working Pixel 3 XL, and the timing can not be worse for Samsung.
The video is from the same Ukrainian blogger who posted unboxing pictures a few days ago, but this clip focuses on the phone. We can clearly see that this is a Pixel 3 XL device because the design fits perfectly with previous leaks. A large chopping box with at least two cameras dominates the top of the phone and there is a chin on the bottom. On the backside we have a lens camera and the phone has only one port, USB-C connector.
The video also contains additional specifications, including 6.7-inch screen with 2960 x 1
It is unclear why the AnTuTu reference shown on the video shows three front cameras. We know that the phone has two lenses, which can be used for iPhone X-like face detection. But unless there is an error from AnTuTu, where is the third camera?
Android 9.0 Pie is preinstalled of course and we can easily see the new navigation certificates that Google will introduce. It also seems that the phone has a continuous view that makes sense because we have seen such features on other Android phones with OLED monitors.
Why are Pixel 3 XL units out in nature now? We do not know. The Pixel 3 Series would be unveiled on October 4, according to a recent leak, so we have a lot of time to go to then. Meanwhile, check out the entire clip below.
