Pixel 3 XL found in a Lyft, had already leaked enough for driver to recognize itSeptember 3, 2018
It’s been the subject of creepshots on public transit. It’s reportedly been stolen and sold for thousands on the black market a full two months before its official announcement. And in the latest leak of Google’s upcoming Pixel 3 XL, well, someone accidentally left the thing in their Lyft. It happens to the best of us, right? It’s understandable that people with test units might be letting their guard down a bit since this phone has already been so thoroughly leaked.
The driver, a Pixel 2 XL owner himself, quickly realized that he was handling the latest Pixel; there’s no mistaking that notch. After shooting a few photos and sending them to Android Police, he returned the pre-production Pixel 3 XL to its rightful (and probably enormously thankful) owner. The phone was in a case, which will probably be a must-have accessory now that the entire back is all glass.
It’s expected that Google will unveil the Pixel 3 XL along with the no-notch Pixel 3 on October 9th at an event in New York City.
