Google's huge Pixel 3 XL smartphone is expected to be officially released in October, but it has already been unofficially released in the form of leaks to the Russian and Ukrainian tech media (possibly after someone stole a shipment in transit).
There are no good places to leave an unreleased phone.
The driver returned the phone to the owner soon after, according to Android Police. The latest development involves the Pixel 3 XL getting leaked once more in the black colour model, with the owner apparently forgetting it while taking a Lyft ride.
On the smartphone there is a transparent protective cover, but this gadget is certainly similar to the device Pixel 3 XL, which had previously been seen in spy photos. These naming schemes are based on the fact that the previous gen Pixels i.e the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 Xl were called as G011A and G011c respectively.
Oops? A Google employee lost a yet to be announced Pixel 3 phone in a taxi.
Both phones meanwhile are said to have a dual-lens front-facing camera, a single-lens rear camera and a Snapdragon 845 chipset, which should make them competitive with other 2018 flagships. This week, there's another leak that found a lost Pixel 3 XL in the wild.
It is expected that the new smartphones will support the technology the Active Edge.
On the 9th of October, Google is going to be launching the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL in an event that will be held in New York City.
