Google Pixel 3 XL wireless charging confirmed as camera samples leak out

Those Pixel 3 XL leaks might have come from a Ukrainian black market dealer

Google Pixel 3 XL spotted sporting a certain sort of notch

The leak encompasses a lot of what the phone will be - its design and looks, its specs, its retail package and even shares the first camera samples, captured with the Google Pixel 3 XL. Now, with some detective work, we may have an idea where all these unreleased phones are coming from.

If that isn't enough, how about a confirmation that the Pixel 3 XL is going to support wireless charging? With the Pixel 3 XL, if it is released as we see in this latest round of leaks, Google isn't changing its strategy to appease the enthusiast crowd.

Some of the black market Telegram messages, with the contact info obscured. Until October 4th, when the official announcement is expected, we simply won't know for sure.

As one would expect, some of the reviews are focusing on the photography aspects of the Pixel 3 XL, and so far it seems like the device will once again be a photographer's (and selfie-shooter's) dream, via 9to5Google. Perhaps that's where they got the phone in the pictures (not left behind in a taxi like the tweet claims). It mentions the Pixel 3 XL as having a display with a resolution of 1080×2960 pixels, and a 3,430mAh battery.

Google didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. The images look promising and according to the good work that the Pixel 2 XL already did, but it is hard to ascertain their accuracy and how much quality is the result of the great application that the tech giant Google places on Pixel devices to see if there is an improvement in the lenses or sensor. After the main features, come the first huge leak of Pixel 3 XL.

The device sports a dual front camera and a single main camera. Those accessories are consistent with what we've seen in previous leaked images. While the rear panel of the Pixel 3 XL looks pretty much identical to the Pixel 2 XL. Since Android Pie has a provision for developers to create apps that are compatible with the notch, it makes flawless sense for Google to provide a notch above the display.

The unboxing also features an adapter for headphones with P2 input, USB-C type cable on both connectors and another USB-C type for traditional USB adapter.
