Google’s Pixel 3 XL spotted in the wild

By | 19th August 2018

As we inch our way closer to the unveiling of Google’s Pixel 3 lineup, leaks of the new devices have become more common. While we’ve seen a handful of images of the phones already, today’s photo shows that people are already using the phone in the real world.

A Mobile Syrup reader recently spotted someone casually using the Pixel 3 XL on the streetcar in Toronto and managed to sneak a picture of it. The phone in question looks identical to the Pixel 3 XL leaks and renders we’ve seen already, featuring dual front-facing cameras, a tall notch and speakers above and below the display.

We’re not exactly sure why someone would already be using the phone out in the wild, but if we had to guess, the phone is likely being tested by a Canadian service provider which is planning to add the device to its lineup. While it’s exciting to see that the Pixel 3 XL is being used in the wild, we still have at least another month and a half before Google’s expected October unveiling of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL.

Are you planning to wait for Google’s new phones or will you be picking up another device before October?
