Google Pixel 3 XL teardown reveals Samsung screen, tons of glue

The Pixel 3 XL is slightly less repair-friendly than the previous generation of Google flagships due to an increased amount of adhesive used in its construction. This should not be confused with the Titan Security Key, Google's two-factor authentication dongle, but it's related to Titan, a custom security chip used in Google's data centers. Here, Titan M works with the bootloader to verify that you're running the newest, safest version of Android.

Speaking about the offer, Vani Venkatesh, Chief Marketing Officer, Bharti Airtel said, "We are excited to extend our partnership with Google to on-board their latest range of devices to our Online Store and delight customers".

Google's flagship smartphone launch as nothing short of a disaster past year, with the LG-made Pixel 2 XL marred with problems. But on the other hand, this makes it much harder to open. Importantly, Titan M works with third-party apps to generate and store keys. "The Google Pay team", according to the post, "is actively testing out these new APIs to secure transactions".

On top of all that, Titan M's firmware can't be updated or changed until the user's passcode is successfully entered.

We were certainly intrigued upon getting the first word about the chip, going so far as to regard it as possibly even more exciting than the camera processor and maybe even lacking a rival of any kind on computing devices. And mind you, the Pixel 3 is not only smaller, but lower-res as well, at 2160 x 1080 pixels (or 443 ppi), compared to a 2960 x 1440 resolution resulting in a 523 ppi density on the 3 XL.
