If you didn’t see enough of the Pixel 3 XL already, the same Ukranian tech blogger – Канал Лучкова (Ivan Luchkov) – who leaked the Pixel 3 XL in the retail box earlier this week is back. This time with a much more in-depth look at the phone in a new video that shows the phone off in greater detail and confirms pretty much every spec you could want.

The new video – via Android Police – includes footage of Antutu running which confirms a display has a 6.7″ diagonal measurement (minus the notch of course) with a 2960×1440 resolution (491PPI). The phone has a 3,430mAh battery and his 64GB model has 10.9GB of used space (with a couple of his apps installed).

The Antutu app also gives us a look at the camera specs on the handset which includes a 12.2MP single rear sensor and 3x 8.1MP sensors. The phone has quite an obvious dual-camera setup on the front, so we’re not sure what’s happening there – perhaps a third depth sensing camera being picked up?

Unlike the first video, this one has all the identifying information about the phone (MAC Address, serial number etc.) blocked out – a bit like shutting the barn door after the horse has bolted. Still, it gives us a good look at the phone again, including that the phone’s rear has a very glass like look to it adding weight to that rumour.

We don’t have long to wait until the Pixel 3 is announced, with the announcement looking to be on October 4th again.

What are your thoughts after seeing this rather thorough hands-on video?

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Dunno why so much notch hate. I got used to it on my iPhone X very quick and it really is a non issue even this big. And you can turn it off on Android and when you do I expect you will get a very symmetric look. Not that I care how it looks. Space is a bit of a concern… But I am hopeful of a face id style alternative…I might finally be coming back. Just need a pixel watch and the deal might be sealed!

No mate, you can’t just “turn it off” lol that makes no sense, where do all the cameras and sensors go? Better yet why even have a notch if that was the case?, cause I know I would prefer 0 bezels over a stupid notch, Lol anywayyys, you Can only turn it off with older smartphones that are running Android pie because there isn’t a real notch.

From my understanding you can make the notch less noticeable by turning the top part of the screen black and as its a oled screen it will go completely black, and blend in the ugly notch, anyway as a pixel 2 xl owner myself I won’t be upgrading to the pixel 3, hopefully this notch fad will pass, so for now I’m notching the notch!

That notch, if real makes this phone almost a joke no matter what the specs.

The pixel xl 2 looks better guess I won’t be upgrading. How could they make such an ugly phone. I don’t see how people would buy this

Everytime I see a Pixel, I get even more convinced in getting a Note, instead.

Biggest notch on a phone
Large bottom bezel

Well, looks like I’ll be passing on the Pixel 3 XL this year. Many other phones with better specs for same or better pricing.

Yeah considering my first Samsung since S2 or perhaps a Nokia.
