iFixit has taken apart Google's Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL to investigate the devices' components and repairability.

It becomes a bit more complicated when you factor in the fact that Best Buy is selling Pixel 3 phones that are, in fact, locked to Verizon, in other words Verizon Pixel 3s. It runs Android 9.0 Pie on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 4GB RAM and your choice of 64 or 128GB storage. Pricing follows the official Google Store pricing which means you'll need to splash the cash to the tune of £739/£839 for the 64GB/128GB variants of the Pixel 3 and £869/£969 for the 64GB/128GB versions of the Pixel 3 XL.

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. In case you are planning to buy the all new Pixel smartphones, then telecom operator Airtel has good new for you. As in spite of the Pixel 3 only technically having become available to buy in the U.S. yesterday, there is a very good chance a number of devices had already been sold via pre-orders which opened through Verizon more than a week ago.

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