The leaky ship that is the Pixel 3 XL has continued to sail, this time with camera samples allegedly taken with a Pixel 3 XL surfacing on Instagram.
While it’s a lofty claim to have a Pixel 3 XL in hand, a quick check of his Twitter account shows some shots of a Pixel 3 XL, again in Clearly White, being unboxed. The phone is placed on a wireless charger part way through the video and you can see the phone light up – so….wireless charging confirmed!

The images are from both the front and rear cameras, with EXIF data for pictures taken with the front camera showing an f/1.8 aperture with a 3264×2448 (7.99MP) resolution, while the rear also has an f/1.8 aperture but a 4032×3024 (12.2MP) resolution. And as expected for a Pixel, the Device manufacturer is listed as ‘GOOG’.
The camera shots show a mix of front, rear and also a couple of portrait shots mixed in and frankly they’re pretty impressive, just like the original Pixel and Pixel 2 cameras were. You can see the images here:
The launch of the Pixel 3 is still expected in October, so we haven’t got long to go before we see if these are legit, but it’s looking pretty good.
