Google Pixel 3 XL gets compared to the Pixel 2 XL in new hands-on video

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL won't be officially announced before October 9, and yet we've seen both handsets in a multitude of leaked imagesand in some videos. As of today, we can take yet another clear look at the Pixel 3 XL, thanks to a new hands-on video posted on YouTube by Russian outlet Rozetked.

As you can see above, the new video - in Russian - shows a white Google Pixel 3 XL that, at times, is compared to a black Pixel 2 XL. This allows us to conclude that the two phones are nearly identical in size - just as previously assumed. Of course, the Pixel 3 XL has a larger display (allegedly measuring around 6.4 inches) and a prominent notch, but, other than that, its design isn't changed much.   

While almost all other smartphone makers are using dual (or even triple) main cameras on their flagship handsets, Google is sticking to a single rear camera setup for the Pixel 3 XL. If we take into consideration the superb photo and video capabilities of last year's Pixel 2 XL, this shouldn't be a problem at all. 

We still don't know when the Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 will be available to buy, but it's likely that Google plans to accept pre-orders shortly after October 9, or maybe even on that day. Both new smartphones will unsurprisingly run Android 9 Pie out of the box. Are you considering buying any of them?
