Google launches Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL in Taiwan

Google launches Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL in Taiwan

Taiwan is among the first wave of 13 markets for the global launch of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, Peter Prunuske, R&D vice president of Google, said at a product event held in Taipei recently.

When early birds starting picking up their GooglePixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones from Verizon this week, they were met with befuddlement when it was discovered that the devices were carrier locked. It runs Android 9.0 Pie on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 4GB RAM and your choice of 64 or 128GB storage.

The Pixel 3 XL is slightly less repair-friendly than the previous generation of Google flagships due to an increased amount of adhesive used in its construction. "We have temporarily removed it from Pixel 3 and are assessing where it will be implemented in the future". That hasn't slowed down iFixit from tearing down the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL to reveal all it can about the upcoming handsets.

Jamal Khashoggi case: Liam Fox rejects Saudi summit
But on Wednesday, Trump told reporters: "We've asked for it ... if it exists" - before adding that it "probably does" exist. Trump said he hoped the Saudis' own investigation of Khashoggi's disappearance would be concluded in "less than a week".

Although Google has unveiled its mostly unsurprising Pixel 3 range, the pair has yet to fall into the hands of customers who've pre-ordered. For example, this could simply be a policy change created to circumvent the current situation Verizon's now finds itself in. Verizon's policy on the matter is also rather unclear at the moment. If you buy a Verizon Pixel, it's really only going to work on Verizon at first.

The telco has announced that both the Pixel smartphones - Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have arrived on the Airtel online store. This is likely why Verizon has now reverted its stance on a temporary basis so that at the very least it can fulfill current orders and take new ones while it addresses the locking issue in general.
