The last time we saw a phone leaked all it could have been.
Not only have several Russian-speaking bloggers apparently gotten the hand on unpelledmonths before the expected October debut, they have not only destroyed almost every detail you want to know ̵
That video capsules of a week where we have already had almost a complete review of this leaked device, thanks to Eldar Murtazin of the mobile phone – review.com. In addition to a complete unboxing of the phone, he has already had time to publish a hefty camera comparison of Google's new flagship to the recently launchedand .
But before we dive into what Murtazin revealed, we must give credit to Russian blog Rozetked for the first major leak: expose everything from the phone's design (and hack) to features such as wireless charging that the website demoed in a video on Twitter .
There was also Rozetked who first shared what could come in the box with the phone. You can see a USB C charger (with a European adapter), a quick-switch adapter (for transferring data from a previous phone) and supplied wired headset that usesdesign with cord doubling as adjustable loops to hold them in your ears. (Note that .)
Unfortunately, USB-C headphones and USB C to Audio Jack dongle suggest that Pixel 3 XL does not want a headphone jack – you can not see one in any of the pictures. It was also true for Pixel 2.
Looking closely at the headphone connector adapter label, you see that it reads "DVT samples", which may mean that the leaked Pixel is a Model Verification Test Model – An Early Test Probably was not meant to leave the company.
The Pixel headphones also have a @ googel.com (note typo) email address on the label, which makes the leak appear a bit more sketchy. Our email was sent when we tried to email that address, so keep that in mind when considering the external possibility that this may be a smart fake.
If you take a closer look at the camera app icon (set above) you will notice a small pote print. We are not sure what this really means, but it seems to be new. Perhaps the camera program has a pet mode, or maybe there's a new Pixel feature associated withor .
The blogger also noted that Pixel 3 XL comes with a high quality camera. To show it, he took pictures with the phone in London and sent them to Instagram with hashtag # Pixel3XL.
The phone that took these pictures has a rear 12.2 megapixel camera with f / 1.8 aperture, according to images & # 39; EXIF data, which is the same as Pixel 2. The EXIF data also points to an 8 megapixel front camera with f / 1.8 aperture. It does not identify the model on the phone.
Then there was the other Pixel XL leak the same day: Pictures of the device were tweeted by a separate play, Wylsacom, who claimed they found the phone in a taxi.
The pictures made it easy to look at the phone's notch (and its sensors) and look at the phone's settings. You can see a reference to the phone'sfeature, which was also on Pixel 2.
The lapper also posted other images that point to specifications such as a resolution of 2,960 x 1,440 pixels and a particular Qualcomm- processor.
So, what does Murtazin add to theseleaks?
Initially, he says his own Pixel 3 XL sent explicit instructions to members of the Google Pixel team on how to keep the device safe outside the office – which is both funny and ironic and gives the leak so much legitimacy.
He says that it has a high quality OLED display that measures 6.2 inches diagonally, which does not necessarily get strong enough to use in powerful sunlight, and actually comes with a plastic back and a little less battery than Pixel 2 XL, although he says he did not have trouble keeping it charged.
He also shows that Google's new USB-C earplugs contain a button to call Google Assistant, confirming specifications, including a Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB memory and 64GB of storage space, that it's still want printable pages (), and it will maintain the same 12.2 and 8 megapixel camera resolutions, but now with H.265 / HEVC video for more efficient use of storage.
The Surprising Part, though, it is despite Murtazin's thorough appearance, he found no more. The phone seems quite similar to Pixel 2. For example, he claims that his device does not seem to have any kind of face lock, despite its new iPhone X-like notch.
Just wait and see if there is anything more exciting in the store – say these rumors "super selfies" – in October. And hopefully, the story of how these phones.
Google did not respond to requests for comment.
