Tech giant Google recently launched its flagship smartphones - Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL at an event in NY.

Fans of big-screen phones will find a lot to love with the Google Pixel 3 XL, but it's a lot to hold onto. Just like always, tech enthusiasts were casually excited for the Google Pixel 3 XL teardown. "We have temporarily removed it from Pixel 3 and are assessing where it will be implemented in the future".

Verizon remains the exclusive Pixel 3 carrier in the U.S., and that isn't such a great thing this year, as the Pixel 3 phones are locked to Verizon's network. You only need a Verizon SIM card to do it, so borrow one from your family or friends.

iFixit did not confirm whether the Pixel 3 also uses a Samsung display. This policy is part of an anti-theft initiative that Verizon rolled out earlier this year to discourage folks from stealing from its retail stores. The same goes for any other phone that Verizon sells, the report notes. While we did know that this chip is meant to make the new devices more secure, Google has now revealed details on exactly how the Titan M chip works in a new blog post.

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. For example, this could simply be a policy change created to circumvent the current situation Verizon's now finds itself in. The Pixel 3 units that Best Buy sells are also locked to Verizon.

Google's latest phone officially launched yesterday, and for the third time, Verizon is the only carrier selling the new Pixels directly.
