Google Pixel 3 XL: being sold before official launch

Google Pixel 3 is one of the most leaked smartphones in recent history. Pixel 3 XL is set to launch officially on October 9th. Google is unlikely to have many surprises in store at its 9 October launch. The pre-orders will start immediately after the event.

Engadget editor Richard Lai obtained the device from a Hong Kong retailer. Lai put together a video review of the phone. The device he has in hand matches up with the leaks that we’ve seen.
