Google sent out invites for an event next month that is likely to feature the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Leaks for both of the devices show just how fast things change in the tech world. Just two months back, there was a semi-draught for leaks. We had only a couple of screen protectors and renders based on leaked dimensions to try to decipher what the third generation of Pixels from Google will feature.
However, Google then went ahead and lost a whole batch of Pixel 3 XL pre-production units and things haven’t been the same since then. In what is undoubtedly the biggest leak in tech history since Gizmodo got their hands on an iPhone 4, the Pixel 3XL leaked in its entirety months before its launch. Now, looks like Google’s looking to ride the very train it inadvertently set in motion.
According to our sources google sent out an email asking for permission to use a specific clip from one of the channel’s videos, and while we don’t know exactly which clip this is, we do know that this channel hasn’t been favorable at all to the various Pixel 3 XL leaks.
Several other “big” channels which posted similarly unfavorable videos about Google’s upcoming phone were also contacted by the company to use clips from their videos as well. Looking at the videos in question, the narrative simply mocks Google’s design of the Pixel 3 XL.
In one case, Google apparently asked to use a clip where the YouTube host in question specifically said that Google should “fire their design team” because Pixel 3 XL looks so terrible.
Maybe a google employee emailed him for use of said footage? Do I believe they made devices which wont look like the outcome of the real phone? likely no, they of course did some testing of designs but I really doubt they would release this for a “meme”.
It can ruin reputation for a meme.
I dont believe shit what the guy said, first says he didnt sign NDA, mentions some bullshit about apple stuff goes talking about guy is a engineer for Google messaged him but wont say what video. Doesn’t add up. Anyone can put they work for any company on Linkedin as well, so he could have done all of it for clickbait youtube views.
What you think about google pixel lineup please tell us in comments.
