Those upgrading from a Google Pixel 2 to a Pixel 3 XL will be getting a larger device, with a larger display. The Pixel 2 featured a 5.0-inch display, and the Pixel 3 XL has that jumping to 6.3-inches with HDR support. The processor saw the expected year-over-year improvement, going from a Snapgradon 835 to Snapdragon 845. Other notable feature improvements came with the battery, front-facing camera, and rear camera software features. The Pixel 3 XL has a 3430 mAh battery, an 8MP dual-front facing camera setup (wide and normal), and received Top Shot, Super Res Zoom, and Motion Auto-Focus. The Pixel 3 XL also featured a new soft-touch back.
