Leaked Images, Video Show Google Pixel 3 XL with USB-C Earbuds

It has an Adreno 630 GPU and runs Android 9.

A Pixel 3 XL prototype that Google hasn't remotely nuked yet.

The new photos show a phone that looks very similar to the purported Pixel 3 XL in photos posted to the XDA Developers forum in early June.

Google has done away with the chunky bezel at the top of the screen for the Pixel 3 XL, but it has replaced it with a rather large notch that takes a sizable chunk out of the display. And before that, we saw some photos of the Google Pixel 3 XL black version.

In May, defence officials laid out new restrictions for the use of cellphones and other mobile wireless devices inside the Pentagon.

The back shows the usual single camera setup and fingerprint reader. The images show the Pixel 3 XL switched on and in working condition, lending weight to its legitimacy. This is the first prototype we've seen with the final "G" Google logo. The Pixel 3 XL, meanwhile, may boast a light green power button instead.

As if the leaked photos were not already enough, a video has also surfaced of the Pixel 3 XL being unboxed. A resolution of 1440×2960 with a pixel density of 494 is also stated, and there's also confirmation that the device will have just 4GB of RAM. That'd indicate that we're running a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 here - which is right on the mark for what this smartphone's been rumored to run for the past several weeks.

Inside the box is the biggest surprise, with Google including a pair of earbuds with a USB Type-C connector.

The addition would be noteworthy; finding USB-C headphones isn't exactly easy, as competing audio standards have made it hard for manufacturers to support devices with USB-C ports in lieu of 3.5mm headphone jacks. The notch is as deep as we saw on the Essential phone but it's covering a lot more real-estate.
