The Google Pixel 3 XL has been the subject of many leaks over the last few months. We’ve had a few exclusive looks at the Clearly White and Black models. Then earlier this week, we saw a hands-on video with a nearly final production unit. Today, that same Ukranian blogger has posted a video of the Pixel 3 XL going through AnTuTu.
Unlike the last video, which focused on the contents of the box, this video shows the device up and running. After showing off the device he uses the AnTuTu app to confirm some of the specs that have been floating around. Keep in mind that this is a DVT 1.0 model (Device Validation Test), so while it’s likely the hardware won’t change, it’s not officially final.
Here’s what we can gather from the video:
- 6.7-inch display 1440×2960 resolution
- 3,430 mAh battery
- 12.2MP rear camera
- 3 front cameras, all listed as 8.1MP
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 845
- Adreno 630
- 64GB storage
- 4GB RAM
- Active Edge confirmed
- Android 9
The most interesting thing here is the three front cameras. The previously leaked photos have shown two front cameras, which we assume is for some type of extra secure face unlock ability. So the third camera is either an error from AnTuTu or something else. It’s important to remember that AnTuTu is a user-created app and it’s always possible the information being fed to it by the system is faked. Unlikely, but possible.
Another interesting tidbit is a quick glimpse at 3:57 in the video. It appears there is a wallpaper in the background of the Always-on Display. This is something that we discovered in the Android Pie source code earlier this week. Now it looks like the feature is confirmed. Pretty soon, there won’t be anything left to discover about this device. Now if only the smaller Pixel 3 would show its face a little more.
