  • We are all susceptible to confirmation bias

In a teardown of both the devices by iFixit, it was found that the OLED display used inside the Pixel 3 XL is manufactured by Samsung, whereas the one used on the Pixel 3 is manufactured by LG. The Pixel 3 phones are available unlocked on Google Play for use with most carriers (GSM and CDMA), and it's also sold by Verizon and for Google's Project Fi.

Since Verizon is the exclusive carrier for Pixel devices, the only two options for buying a Pixel device are to buy it through Verizon (via a Verizon store or Best Buy) or to order an unlocked version from Google. "We have temporarily removed it from Pixel 3 and are assessing where it will be implemented in the future".

When asked specifically if this means that they have removed the lock on Pixel 3 phones, they confirmed that to be the case. The larger Pixel 3 XL will cost $899 for the 64GB variant or $999 for the 128GB model. That policy involved locking Verizon phones to Verizon's network until they had been activated on Verizon's network and then went through an overnight unlocking process. The Pixel 3 starts at $799 and the 3 XL starts at $899.

USA and United Kingdom ministers boycott Saudi summit amid journo's case
The time-stamped photos showed the man outside the Saudi consulate building in Istanbul on the morning Khashoggi disappeared, Sabah said.

Impact: While this seems like a positive move from Verizon, it still remains to be seen how effective it will be in the long term. But the Pixel 3 devices are created to work on every major carrier.

Google's latest phone officially launched yesterday, and for the third time, Verizon is the only carrier selling the new Pixels directly. But rest assured that Verizon is likely to bring the restrictions back online at some point.
