Google Pixel 3 XL teardown reveals Samsung screen, tons of glue

Pixel 3 Pre-orders

It looks like Google didn't want to put up with the same screen burn-in and responsiveness issues with its Pixel 3, instead turning to LG's rival Samsung for its AMOLED panels. If you buy the Pixel 3 XL from Verizon Wireless, it comes with an added Verizon Tax which bumps the 64GB Pixel 3 XL to $929 and the 128GB Pixel 3 XL to $1029, on the flipside, the regular Pixel 3 costs the same as it does from the Google Store.

Google Pixel 3 starts at Rs 71,000, whereas, the Pixel 3 XL starts at Rs 83,000. On the use of SIM-locking in general, Verizon representatives have been quoted saying the carrier is "assessing where it will be implemented in the future". Google didn't reveal the switching between the two South Korean companies for making the display panels of its Pixel 3 models.

Alisson, Firmino, Mane and Salah nominated for 2018 Ballon d'Or
Cristiano Ronaldo headlines the latest batch of players to be announced as nominees for the 2018 Ballon d'Or by France football . Roberto Firmino from Brazil, Liverpool and Diego Godin from Uruguay, Atletico Madrid. "He can play at any club in the world".

But if you're picking up Google's latest flagship through Verizon or Best Buy in hopes of easily activating it on a different carrier, we've got a bit of bad news. This is unlike the a year ago Pixel family that had the larger, Pixel 2 XL with a panel from LG and the smaller, Pixel 2 with a Samsung display.

When asked specifically if this means that they have removed the lock on Pixel 3 phones, they confirmed that to be the case. Aspects which when all combined is likely why Verizon has now seemed to have changed its stance on the matter - at least for the time being.
