Google Pixel 3 XL is an upcoming smartphone by Google. 
Powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset.

Pixel 3 XL is apparently powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset, but oddly enough, it only has 4GB of RAM. I’m willing to bet that there’s a higher-end version with maybe 6GB or more RAM. The screen resolution is listed as 2,960 x 1,440, but it’s unclear what type of OLED panel is being used.

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

As for cameras, 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. And yes, it’s plural for the latter: It turns out that Google is taking a page out of LG’s book by adding a super-wide secondary front camera. 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.

The box doesn’t provide much insight into the phone’s specs. All it mentions is the 6.3-inch screen size, 128GB storage capacity, its “Just Black” design and the model number. “Designed by Google. Made in China.” On the far right, there’s a hologram sticker featuring Google’s “G” logo. The bottom side of the box is pretty much all blue with a white “#teampixel” hashtag — just like the one on the Pixel 2 series’ packaging.
