The Pixel 3 XL has been leaked more than any other smart phone in recent memory, thanks to the fact that the preproduction units have been unpacked and tested in nature. If somehow you need more evidence that the phone exists, or just enjoy seeing these leaks like me, someone left a preproduction unit in Lyft.

These images were sent to us by a reader, who will be referred to as Anonymous Alligator in this publication. Alligator is a driver of Lyft, who found the phone in the back seat of his car after leaving a few passengers. He thought that his Pixel 2 XL had somehow receded, but realized it was the 3 XL after seeing the notch and the Google logo on the back.

The unit had several identification stickers, which had been blocked. Alligator returned the phone to the original owner a few minutes later.
