Official-Looking Leaked Video Shows Off Google's Pixel 3 in Action

By Tom Pritchard on at

Over the past few months we have seen an exceptional amount of information about the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL. More information that can normally be expected from the rumour and leak system that's been in place the past several years. Whether you believe this is deliberate misdirection, an elaborate hype machine, or just pure bad luck on Google's part, there's now even more information out there thanks to a leaked video.

The video itself come via MySmartPrice's YouTube page, and some sort of official marketing video designed to be used by Google. There's nothing too major, but it does feature what appears to be the Pixel 3, and all the various controls and gestures people can opt to use with the phone and Android Pie. From as basic as copying text, to taking video calls and using the fingerprint scanner for gesture control.

You can tell that it's definitely not a Pixel 2, since there's that hefty chin featuring the second speaker grill, even if there's nothing here you can't already do on last year's device running the latest Android software.

We've still got a week and a half before the Pixel 3 launch event, where we should find out exactly what's going on. Google isn't likely to spend much time acknowledging the many leaks that have occurred, if at all, but it will give us the opportunity to verify what is and isn't true. Confirmation is nice to have, after all, even if there's no actual new information to be had. High resolution imagery is also good, rather than the scraps we've had fed to use from the internet and YouTubers who somehow managed to get devices ahead of time.

No doubt more of this sort of thing will arrive in the coming days, so make sure to keep an eye out. [Slashgear]
