Google Pixel 3 XL teardown reveals Samsung screen, tons of glue

Google Pixel 3 XL teardown reveals Samsung screen, tons of glue

Verizon remains the exclusive Pixel 3 carrier in the U.S., and that isn't such a great thing this year, as the Pixel 3 phones are locked to Verizon's network.

To back up for a second, for those who missed out - yesterday, Verizon confirmed to us that the SIM locking policy they began implementing earlier this year was being applied to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. You couldn't just walk into a Best Buy, buy a Pixel 3, and slap a T-Mobile SIM card into it. Instead, Samsung is the new screen supplier for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Let us know in the comments right below. Since Google is already copying the notch form iPhone, why not go a little more and take the display as well, eh?

As for Samsung, it is the world largest phone display maker. Google integrated Titan M into Verified Boot, which is Google's secure boot process, to ensure that users are running the correct version of Android (as opposed to one that has been tampered with and is potentially malicious). The Google Pixel 3 has only one variant: 4GB RAM plus 64GB storage.

The model and actress braved the wind at Windsor Castle as she rocked a full suit, complete with jacket , tie and top hat. Trump did not congratulate Meghan Markle , who is American, for her marriage to England's Prince Harry earlier this year.

The camera gear is also common, with a 12.2MP rear camera that improves over the camera on the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, but for some reason ditches a depth sensor.

In case you are looking to pre-book Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL from Airtel Online Store, here's how you can do it. However, the new development seems like their deal is officially closed, at least for Google Pixel devices. Along with this, the customers will also get free Netflix subscription for 3 months, 100GB data per month, free Amazon Prime subscription for 1 year and free Airtel Secure subscription. While pre-orders are already shipping, you can now buy either of the third-generation Pixel phones directly from the Google Store, Project Fi, or from Verizon in the USA, while United Kingdom readers will have to wait until November 1st to splash the cash. This is in addition to Google's own Pay service.
