Google switches to a Samsung display for the Pixel 3 XL

We are all susceptible to confirmation bias

The Titan M Chip integrates deep security at the hardware level, starting with the bootloader. What are your thoughts on Google's proactive approach to security?

After examining the Pixel 3's construction which included massive amounts of glue for the rear glass panel, iFixit gave Google's new flagship a poor repairability score of 4 out of 10.

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. This prevents attackers from changing the security firmware without first unlocking your device. In this version of Android, developers can have their apps utilize StrongBox KeyStore APIs for generating and storing these private keys in Titan M. Google says that utilizing these APIs can help make sure that it is the user and not something else confirming a mobile transaction.

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.

Now that the Pixel 3 XL is out in the open, it was just a matter of time until someone disassembled it. In line with this, Titan M enables Protected Confirmation, a new set of APIs in Android 9.0 Pie that protects critical processes. "With the Pixel 3", Xin's post today concludes about the phone that goes on sale in the U.S. tomorrow, "we've increased our investment in security and put industry-leading hardware features into the device, so you can rest assured that your security and privacy are well protected".
