The Best Google Pixel 3 XL Cases

Posted October 20, 2018

The Titan M has been integrated into the boot process for the Pixel 3.

If you are now aware, Google Pixel have been using LG displays for a long period. But if we were to follow the past experience of the original Pixel and Pixel 2, these "Verizon" phones were actually identical to the unlocked models and could be used on any carrier of your choice - the only hurdle was getting Best Buy or Verizon to sell you one without a Verizon account.

For now, this means that you should stay away from buying a Pixel 3 or 3 XL from Best Buy or Verizon if intend to use it on a carrier other than Verizon. There were signs the feature was coming before the Pixel 3 was announced, and more recently, there was evidence it'd make its way to the Pixel 2.

When Google revealed the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL earlier this month, it also brought up the Titan M security chip, which is built into the new phones. Customers can get the devices at affordable down payments starting just Rs 17000 and convenient EMIs that come with a built-in postpaid plan, which include data, unlimited calling and bundled premium content. The Pixel 3 XL comes with a 4GB RAM too, but offers two storage variants: 64GB and 128GB.

Titan M also handles lock-screen passcode verification on Pixel 3 handsets, enforces login attempt limits, and only lets content be decrypted once the user's passcode is verified.

The first to do so is the trusty iFixit, and while digging through the Pixel 3 XL's innards didn't result in any groundbreaking discoveries, there are still a few interesting changes compared to the last generation of Pixel phones.

The camera gear is also common, with a 12.2MP rear camera that improves over the camera on the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, but for some reason ditches a depth sensor.
