Thanks to Russian tech blogger Канал Лучкова’s Telegram channel, we have got the chance to have the first look at the upcoming Pixel 3 XL. These leaked images show the finalised hardware alongside wired USB-C Pixel Buds. Not to forget, these images are entirely in sync with the previous photos, we see the much-dreaded notch (Google couldn’t resist it, too!).

One of the images shed some light on the hardware; it mentions the screen resolution at 1440×2960 pixels which means that we will get a QHD display on the Pixel 3 XL.
