Because we do not fully expect Google to uncover the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones this week, there's no reason to stop the leak just because IFA 2018 is around the corner. Although there is practically nothing left of Pixel 3 to be leaked at this point. But what better way to stop everything than with a unboxing video from the Pixel 3 XL set to a very soothing background music. And that's exactly what the YouTube channel in DIGI delivers, from Russia, with love.
This unboxing video is pretty much the live version of images we have been gifted to late. It also confirms accessories that come in the box, including USB-C adapters. Yes, it confirms pretty much everything because they are most likely from the same series of black market Pixel 3 XL.
If this really is Pixel 3 XL, there will be no shortage of disappointed fans. The very white glass design can make some pines for dual-tone old days. Gone is the contrasting orange button too, it seems. And of course there is a "bucket" notch, which seems to house two cameras in front.
These cameras have largely been the bread and butter of Pixel's existence and there are some concerns that this year may be the year that Pixel finally collapses under the fame of fame. Google may have put too long for its AI-generated laurels, giving others in the market time to surpass it. Then again, these were the same doubts with Pixel 2, and Google still managed to pull a rabbit out of the hat.
There is of course the possibility that this is not Pixel 3 XL, as we have been duped by fakes all the time. Or that Google itself was behind what could be trolling by the decade. We would not put it past it either.
