The Pixel 3 XL features a Samsung display after all

Marion JacobsOct 21, 2018

The Pixel 3, which features a 5.5-inch OLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 CPU, 4GB RAM and 64/128GB of ROM, is available starting at NT$27,700 (US$898).

Another interesting detail is that Google has been using a lot of glue in the Pixel 3 XL, which probably makes it more waterproof - the phone is rated at IP68, which is top of the class right now.

Since Verizon is the exclusive carrier for Pixel devices, the only two options for buying a Pixel device are to buy it through Verizon (via a Verizon store or Best Buy) or to order an unlocked version from Google.

When asked specifically if this means that they have removed the lock on Pixel 3 phones, they confirmed that to be the case. You only need a Verizon SIM card to do it, so borrow one from your family or friends.

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL include the necessary modem hardware to work on all major United States carriers. However, the issue has proven to be far more of an issue when it comes to the Pixel 3 line due to Verizon being the only carrier licensed to sell the phone in the US.

However, this policy changed with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL (read the HotHardware review here). In terms of build and construction, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are quite similar. iFixit has given both a repairability score of 4 out of 10. But rest assured that Verizon is likely to bring the restrictions back online at some point. In a nutshell, all phones acquired from the carrier have to be first activated on Verizon before they can be used on other networks, with a wait time of up to 24 hours.
