This sort of deal is not very common in the smartphone industry but we presently have an unreleased smartphone on the market for an outrageous price. The Google Pixel 3 series is still many weeks away from official release but we have seen a full unboxing video and camera samples of this smartphone. According to recent reports, a Ukranian man simply called Luchkov is associated with the massive leaks and there is currently an advert offering limited units of the Pixel 3 XL units for $2,000.

The offer reads “Available on stock in England Limited amount!”. If this seller is in possession of the smartphone, it was most likely obtained illegally and it is definitely trouble. In all honesty, no one should be associated with this “illegal” smartphone because it could be a scam sale. Besides, Google could remotely disable these “stolen” units or even trace the device.
So far, Google has not made an official statement with respect to the leaks or unboxing video. However, having this smartphone auctioned on the black market will not go down well with the company and we expect it to make a statement soon. As usual, we will follow the situation closely and let you know ASAP.
