A Lyft driver claims to have discovered a prototype Pixel 3 XL in the back of his vehicle that one of his fares had obviously forgotten and passed on the information as well as a few snapshots of the handset to the blog Android Police.
We've seen the Pixel 3 XL will have both black and white models, and it's expected we'll see black and white colour options on the Pixel 3 as well - but Google usually has something special up their sleeves in terms of colours. A Pixel 3 XL goes on camera every day now.
The Google Pixel 3 XL may have been getting the lion's share of the headlines as far as the company's upcoming flagships are concerned, but the smaller Pixel 3 was featured prominently in a recent leak that hinted at the device's design and basic specifications with little more than a month remaining before its expected unveiling.
Finally, Android Pie. Google has already released Android Pie to the Pixel and Pixel 2 phones, and other phones either have it (Essential) or are close to with the partners from the Beta program including Nokia, Oppo, OnePlus, Xiaomi and Sony all working hard to release it to their phones.
Like any good cabbie, he returned the phone to its owner.
Google is rumoured to hold the Pixel event somewhere in October where they will announce the Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL and the rumoured Pixel Watch. Android 9 Pie will come pre-installed on the device, while the phone will sport some sort of IP rating for water and dust resistance.
