Google Pixel 3 XL teardown confirms Samsung AMOLED display

Pixel 3 Pre-orders

What are your thoughts on Google's proactive approach to security?

Google launched the Pixel 3 devices last week and, while the devices have mostly be applauded for their outstanding cameras, reviews have also pointed out how good their displays are.

When Google revealed the data centre Titan chip previous year, the Chocolate Factory said its goal was to provide a "hardware-verified boot and end-to-end authenticated root of trust" for its servers.

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. Google went into some details about the security chip today, explaining that it borrowed some of the best features from its Titan chip, which is used for Google Cloud data centers. Specifically, Titan M stores the last known safe Android version and prevents "bad actors" from moving your device back to run on an older, potentially vulnerable, version of Android behind your back.

Sam Simmonds was already out after tearing knee ligaments and Nathan Hughes faces a disciplinary hearing on Wednesday. The injuries are piling up for England , with lock Joe Launchbury last week ruled out after knee surgery.

Titan M also limits the amount of logon attempts with your passcode, helping to prevent malicious decryption.

iFixit did not confirm whether the Pixel 3 also uses a Samsung display. 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".

Titan M likewise brings Protected Confirmation on Android 9, which is an API designed for protecting "the most security-critical operations", according to Google.

On top of all that, Titan M's firmware can't be updated or changed until the user's passcode is successfully entered. Hopefully its partnership with Samsung proves to be a lucrative one, as many have already praised the crisp colour over the blue hue found on the Pixel 3's predecessor.
