That's because they are hands-on shots of an alleged full production model of the phone and if not genuine, someone has gone to an terrible lot of trouble to make them look that way. Both sets of images show a white handset with a significant iPhone X-style notch on the front display.
It's been tipped this week that Google will release this smartphone on October 4th - or that they'll have an event that day.
This morning it would appear that one Russian citizen received a Google Pixel 3 XL in the mail. Just as expected, it is narrower than the iPhone X's notch, but much fatter.
As if the XL sized notch was not already enough, the Pixel 3 XL will also come with a sizeable bezel at the bottom.
It's quite possible this "unboxing" is simply a dummy model placed in the trappings of a Google Pixel 2 XL. And it has a single camera on the back.
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. It has an Adreno 630 GPU and runs Android 9. Some Android devices, like the OnePlus 6, now offer twice that.
One of the pictures gives us a spec readout, which includes a 2960×1440 display, 4GB of RAM, and a Qualcomm SoC that looks like a match for the Snapdragon 845.
New images of Google's Pixel 3 XL white variant have surfaced, and it looks a lot like the recent trend of notched Android smartphones, albeit with a very controversial design.
Does speedy software updates make up for Google's odd design choices?
