The Google Pixel 3 XL comes with a 6.3-inch display with 2960 x 1440 resolution. Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB RAM, 128GB internal storage, 12.2MP rear camera, 8MP + wide-angle lens front cameras, and 3,430mAh battery. The retail package comes with USB Type-C earphones, USB Type-C to 3.5mm dongle, USB Type-C to Type C cable, USB Type-C to Type-C dongle, and an 18W wall plug.

The Pixel 3 XL will be powered by Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset, but it only has 4GB of RAM. The screen resolution is listed as 2,960 x 1,440, but it's not clear what type of OLED panel will be used. That notch though... it sure looks a little weird when placed alongside my OnePlus 6. As for the battery, the 3,732mV voltage value displayed in CPU-Z could be indicative of the cell capacity, though previous reports had pointed to 3,430 mAh.

The handset comes with Google's latest Android 9.0 aka Android Pie with gesture navigation, and it has Active Edge feature that lets you squeeze the phone to perform certain actions, such as toggling Google Assistant and muting sound alerts.

In the camera department, the Pixel 3 XL's camera app confirms the 12.2-megapixel resolution for the single main camera, as well as the 8-megapixel resolution for the front cameras. Interestingly, it seems that to Google, being able to take easier group selfies is more important than having a telephoto lens for the main camera. As for video recording, the main camera can go up to 4K 30fps, whereas the selfie camera is limited to 1080p.

We’ll know more of the price authenticity when it launches on October 9, 2018.  Even though the Pixel 3 series has been leaked over and over again over the past few months, I'm certain that Google still has some tricks up its sleeve for the New York event.
