Google switches to a Samsung display for the Pixel 3 XL

Google Pixel 3 XL Display Ranked Alongside Galaxy Note 9 iPhone XS Max by DisplayMate

For the Titan M in the latest Pixel smartphones, Google explained on Wednesday, there's that same root of trust, ensuring the device starts up an operating system that hasn't been tampered with by malware or hackers, and is cryptographically signed off by Google.

As mentioned in the presentation, iFixit identified the Pixel Visual Core to be the same as the one found in its predecessors, while Google has bolstered safety with its Titan M Security chip. What's more, as a CNET report notes, the Titan M chip is a dedicated chip of Google's own making - not part of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, which already boasts an assortment of security features. The Titan M is made for mobile, though, working to provide on-device OS and data protection.

The Titan M's "secure flash and fully independent computation" harden the phone against attackers seeking to forcibly decrypt data stored on the handheld, we're told. This prevents attackers from changing the security firmware without first unlocking your device.

And finally, in the United Kingdom Google Maps users can find charging station location from Pod Point and Chargemaster. The new feature will support various charging stations around the world, including Tesla and Chargepoint globally.

"Titan M helps the bootloader - the program that validates and loads Android when the phone turns on - make sure that you're running the right version of Android".

Titan M also limits the amount of logon attempts with your passcode, helping to prevent malicious decryption. All of the Pixel 3 and 3 XL SKUs are still available for order - though some models are available to ship within the next few days, while others hare more nebulous "2-3 week" outlook. But on the other hand, this makes it much harder to open.

At Google, the 64GB Pixel 3 is priced at $799, or 24 monthly payments of $33.29.
