A store in Hong Kong has already started selling the Pixel 3 XL for HK$15,880 (around $2,030 US), and Engadget borrowed one of the devices for an early hands-on.

The notch on the phone looks to be less wide than on the Pixel 2, but it is also seemingly taller. All it mentions is the 6.3-inch screen size, 128GB storage capacity, its "Just Black" design and the model number "G013C". According to a couple of IMEI databases, this unit is recognized as a Pixel 3 XL as well.

Image copyright Reuters Image caption The US First Lady's decision to wear a pith helmet on safari in Kenya has drawn criticism. Kavanaugh, who denies the allegation, is expected to be confirmed by the Senate as a Supreme Court justice this weekend.

Also of note, the phone Lai saw came with a pair of USB-C headphones in the box, which should address the complaints Google faced a year ago for shipping the Pixel 2 or or Pixel 2 XL without any headphones. As expected, though, it's powered by a Snapdragon 845. The phone, as per the report ships with Google's latest Android version, Android 9.0 Pie and include Active Edge, the squeeze feature that was introduced by HTC as Edge Sense. The phone comes in a standard Pixel box and inside the box is a USB-C earphone, a USB-C-to-3.5mm headphone dongle, a USB-C-to-USB-C cable, a USB-C-to-USB-A dongle and an 18W USB-C power adapter.

Users on Reddit also spotted the Pixel 3 and 3XL available for pre-order on Freedom Mobile's website, which has since been removed as well. "As for video recording, the main camera can go up to 4K 30fps, whereas the selfie camera is limited to 1080p". Do you own a pixel smartphone from Google?
