Stolen Pixel 3 XLs on Black Market is the Reason Why We Know Everything about the Phone Now!

Pixel 3 XL

The upcoming Google Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL are few of the most awaited devices of 2018. They are around just a month away from the official launch in October and fans are excited for the same. We have already witnessed tons of leaks regarding the Pixel 3/3 XL, be it the case designs, CAD renders, leaked images or even the recent unboxing video. Now, its discovered that some stolen shipments of the Pixel 3 XL test units are being sold via the black market in Europe.

The information comes from the guys at 9to5Google and Slashgear which reveals a leaked image of stocks of Pixel 3 XL with a watermark of the Telegram account where the device is being sold for a whopping price of $2000.

The person behind this is reported to be an anonymous Ukrainian seller which looks quite surprising as stealing the test units from the factory is not an easy task or it might be a case as well that the seller got his hands on the Pixel 3 XL through other illegal practices. Additionally, the seller also claims of selling Pixel 2 XL at cheaper rates.

Here is what the seller said while selling these devices in the public Telegram group:

Remains only 3 pcs, Google Pixel 3 XL: I answer immediately to the most popular questions The price is $2000. Payment is possible via PayPal or Bitcoin. The second is preferable because PayPal has a horse commission for international transfers.

Dispatch is made from London via DHL or FedEx. Regarding the purchase, please contact [REDACTED]. Also, I remind you that there is a large amount of Google Pixel 2 XL available at good prices. Please!

Owen Williams- a freelance developer (@ow) claims that the Pixel 3 XL leaked units that are being sold illegally are test units. Further, he mentions that every shipment carries a Google email address, and out of these, some are are “DVT” (Design Validation Testing) units while others are “EVT” (Engineering Validation Testing) units. Also, the software is reported to be dogfood-level which is the initial most firmware, loaded with bugs and is being tested by the company as of now.

Its still unpredictable how the seller got access to the Pixel 3 XL so early, however, its illegal and one should not deal with black market sellers for the same. Also, given that the news have already been spread, Google might even track and wipe/lock these devices remotely.

Anyways, the launch is nearing soon and Google will be soon officially launching the devices this October. Till then, stay tuned.

Google Pixel 3 Lite & Pixel 3 Lite XL CAD Renders Revealed!

While the Google Pixel handsets have been hailed as best camera phones one can buy, the tech Giant has taken the feedback seriously as it plans to offer its best camera at Nexus-level pricing. The Pixel 3 Lite is said to be an affordable variant of the Pixel 3 and has been subjected to a couple of leaks before.

However, another tipster Onleaks claimed that there will be another larger model to be called as Pixel 3 Lite XL. Today, with collaboration with 91mobiles, he released first 5K renders and a 360-video of the smartphones confirming previous renders.

The Pixel 3 Lite and the Pixel 3 Lite XL seems to have a similar design as its parent Pixel 3 duo but have their differences as well. There is no notched display on either of them and it seems they have slight bezels on the side and top along with a chin at the bottom. Unlike the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, there will be only one speaker which will double up as an earpiece. Ditching the dual selfie camera design, the Pixel 3 Lite and its brother will get a single selfie snapper. There is also a 3.5 mm headphone jack on both the smartphones which aren’t available on the Pixel 3 duo.

Both the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL carry the volume rocker and the power button on the right side and an ejectable SIM on the left side. The lower side houses a USB Type-C port paired with speaker grills. On the rear, they both sport a single camera with a camera bump coupled with dual tone LED flash, a circular fingerprint sensor and a Google logo below. Like their flagship siblings, the upcoming smartphones will be available in black and white hues with a green neon power button on the white color option. The Pixel 3 Lite XL also seems to sport a polycarbonate construction instead of a glass one.

As for its specs, the Pixel 3 Lite will come with a 5.5 inch 18:5:9 display while the Pixel 3 Lite XL will feature a 6 inch 18:5:9 display . Both the devices measure 8.2 mm in thickness which increases to 9 mm when the rear camera bump is included. The Pixel 3 Lite measures 151.3 x 70.1 mm while the XL measures 160 x 76.1mm.

The earlier codenamed Sargo is rumored to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 with 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage while offering a 12MP rear and 8MP front camera. It will run Android 9.0 Pie out of the box and will be backed by a 2,915 mAh battery. The elder sibling is expected to carry similar specs though it is rumored to house a Snapdragon 710 under the hood. As for now, Google is yet to give an official word on the price or the launch date of the smartphones.

Sony-Xperia-XZ4-Compact

A few days ago, we witnessed the Sony Xperia XZ4‘s CAD render leaks which revealed the presence of the triple camera setup on the device. Now we have got some information regarding the Compact version of the XZ4 lineup, the Sony Xperia XZ4 Compact.

The major visual difference you will notice immediately is the difference in the screen size and the bezels. The Sony Xperia XZ4 features a modern design with a 21:9 aspect ratio and a 6-inch display, while the brand has equipped the Sony Xperia Z4 Compact with a 5-inch screen and noticeable bezels. The device measures 139.9 x 66.5 x 9.3 mm according to the renders.Sony-Xperia-XZ4-Compact-3

The bottom bezel holds the Sony logo. The side bezels are very much noticeable, unlike the regular variant. The fingerprint sensor is mounted on the side of the device as usual. There is a single rear camera on the device while the regular Sony Xperia XZ4 features triple cameras.  An LED flash is mounted to the right of the rear camera.

There is a single front-facing camera on the device. The Xperia XZ4 Compact will retain the 3.5 mm headphone jack which was absent on the Xperia XZ4 renders. This is a welcome move as the number of people depending on wired audio devices is still more and having a headphone jack on the device is a positive gesture considering the compact nature of the device.
