What Leaks Tell Us About the Pixel 3 XL (Premium)


Has any smartphone leaked as frequently as Google's upcoming Pixel 3 XL? I don't believe so. But a recently-released unboxing video gives us our best look yet at this new flagship handset. And it makes it very easy to compare the Pixel 3 XL to its predecessor, at least from a form factor perspective.

To do this, I broke out the packaging for my current handset and temporarily removed its protective case. Then, I tried to match up what I'm seeing here in person with the Pixel 3 XL imagery in the unboxing video.
