The Google Pixel 3 XL has appeared in several big leaks today. There are unboxing photos that give us a clear look at the phone's packaging, several hands-on images that show off the hardware, and even a brochure that has leaked a couple of new features of the device.
First up are the unboxing photos. They show not only the front of the box, complete with "G" and "Google Pixel 3 XL" branding, but also all of the goodies inside the box. There are USB-C to USB-A and USB-C to 3.5mm adapters in the box along with a USB-C charging cable, the wall charger, and a pair of USB-C earbuds that look like a wired version of Google's Pixel Buds.
When it comes to the hardware itself, there's not much new to be revealed, which isn't all that surprising considering just how much the Pixel 3 XL has leaked in recent months. Today's leak does give us another great look at the Pixel 3 XL, though, complete with its single rear camera and rear fingerprint reader, its dual front-facing camera setup, and its notch. One image in the set shows that the single SIM card tray will be located on the bottom of the Pixel 3 XL.
Hey, speaking of @madebygoogle.
Enjoy this "leak" straight from us. Was gonna wait until tonight's show, but f**k it.

Finally, a marketing brochure that appears to be from British mobile carrier EE shows the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. It mentions a new feature called "Top Shot" that will "get smiles, not blinks". There's a mention of another feature that'll let you flip your Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL face down to silence notifications.
So there you have it. Again, there's not a ton of new information revealed in these leaks, but they do give us another clear look at one of the most hotly anticipated phones of 2018. We are still missing some critical information about the device, though, like a concrete spec list, so it's still worth looking forward to Google's event on October 9th.
