As you can see in the pictures shown above, the white is clearly visible around the edge of the device and on the rear. The bootloader information shows that this is an EVT 1.0 model (Engineering Validation Test), same as the earlier leaked model. These photos confirm the 4GB RAM model but also show off a 64GB storage version. The rumored display notch also makes a re-appearance and the new photos also show off the bottom-firing speaker much more clearly.
Apart from that, there isn’t much more new information that can be gleaned from these photos. The real-life photos match what we see in leaked 3D CAD renders but it doesn’t confirm aspects like wireless charging or the return of the Google Pixel 2‘s Active Edge squeezable frame. We also can’t tell from these photos if the display is OLED, though given the past history of the Google Pixel and Google Pixel 2 smartphones it’s a strong possibility that the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL will have an OLED display. According to the original poster of the photos, the rear of the device is “totally glass.” He states the “top part is glossy and the bottom is matte” but that it’s all “a single part.” He was unable to confirm if wireless charging is present, though.
Keep in mind that these photos show off an early engineering model. Given that the device is set for release in October, Google is likely past the EVT 1.0 stage in production. The company is likely at the DVT (Design Validation Test) stage where they are getting the hardware units ready for mass production. That means that aspects of these devices may have changed slightly since these EVT devices were manufactured. Furthermore, we don’t know the user who posted these photos nor how he came across them, so take these leaks with a grain of salt.
If we learn more information about the upcoming Google Pixel 3 XL in Clearly White or any other color variant, we’ll let you all know.
