Google Pixel 3 is one of the most highly-anticipated smartphones of the year.
Pixel 3 is widely rumoured to feature an improved camera, turbocharged internal hardware and come pre-installed with Android 9 Pie.
But the phone has been plagued by leaks with alleged builds of the phone propping up widely online showing the Pixel 3 XL with a controversial notch.
A listing of the Pixel 3 XL also appeared on benchmarking platform Geekbench, showing the phone’s supposed upcoming processor and performance capabilities.
And now it appears a video of the Pixel 3 being unboxed has emerged.
A user on Telegram recently posted a clip, spotted by Android Police, of what appears to be Google’s latest Android smartphone being taken out of its box as they show what else will be included with it.
The user insisted the device shown was a “pre-release version” of the hardware.
The Pixel 3 XL build appears to line up with previous rumours the device will be available in a “clearly white” colour and feature a notch.
A pair of new headphones can be found inside the box that look similar to the Pixel Buds shown off by the tech giant during the unveiling of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.
However this time the headphones appear to be wired and feature USB-C connectivity.
A sticker with “Team Pixel” was also shown in the box.
After posting the video the Telegram user then posted images of the phone with the screen turned on.
The alleged Pixel 3 XL shown appears to be running Android 9 Pie – a single home button is present at the bottom of the screen that can only be found in the latest operating system.
Moreover this aligns with previous rumours the Google Pixel 3 could have the new gesture controls, present in the latest version of Android, turned on by default.
The Pixel 3 XL shown features a deep-looking notch at the top of the display.
There is also a front-facing speaker at the bottom of front panel.
Pixel 3 features the phone line’s signature fingerprint sensor on the back of the device accompanying a single camera sensor.
Google is expected to announce the Pixel 3 on October 4, the same day it announced the original Pixel and Pixel 2.
That means Android fans eagerly awaiting details of the new device will not have to wait long to see if this latest leak is legitimate.
