Google will reportedly replace borked Pixel 2 XL handsets

As more units of Google's lost Pixel 3 XL batch mak their way into the hands of various bloggers, further details are emerging.

Russakovskii has moaned that his Google smartphone is "embarrassingly laggy" on both Oreo and Android Pie, while Brownlee, in a YouTube video posted on 1 August (below), said that his Pixel 2 XL's increasingly shonky performance forced him to switch to the OnePlus 6. Of course, these options are only Android's default settings; the feature's functionality can be enhanced with add-ons such as Edge Sense Plus. At this rate we wouldn't be surprised to see full reviews get published before the phone even becomes official.

Furthermore, an image of the retail box of the Pixel 3 XL has also been leaked. This is the white version of the Pixel 3 XL with notch and green power button.

Having already made an appearance in a previous leak, the latest set of images seemingly confirms what we've known for a while. A single rear camera lens can be seen with the shiny black glass panel coupled with an LED flash.

In addition to addressing fan concerns from the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, the device is expected to come packing turbocharged internals, a revamped look and improved camera system.

Latest leak shows the final design of Google Pixel 3 XL

The Pixel 3 XL is unlikely to win any awards in the design department, with that XL notch likely going to turn off many prospective buyers.

The first batch of photos show Google's next flagship from the front and the back, giving us a good look at the huge unsightly notch on the top and the components it's housing. These images show the About and an AIDA64 screenshot.

Google continues to make the device it thinks is best, not the one enthusiasts claim they want. The device was photographed by someone who cleans the lenses before the photos, revealing that everything in it works and the notch is much larger than what the competition delivers. The box contains all the accessories we would expect too, including a charger, USB cable, and a headphone adapter along with USB Type-C headphones for those who like that sort of thing.

The Nexus 4 (our own video from 2012 embedded below), Nexus 5, and 6 supported wireless charging but Google stopped offering the feature in 2014, with the Nexus 6.
