Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL India launch”

"Titan M also prevents attackers running in Android attempting to unlock the bootloader".

Made of "sleek, durable polycarbonate", aka plastic, the case is essentially see-through, with a "self-healing coating" keeping things looking fresh at all times and ideal pairing with both black and black & white Pixel 2 XL variants.

The Titan M has been integrated into the boot process for the Pixel 3. This prevents malicious software from moving your device back to older, more vulnerable versions during booting.

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.

Google describes the Titan M chip in the Pixel 3 as an "enterprise-grade security chip" which was custom built for Pixel 3, building on their Titan security Chip used in Google Data Centres to protect your data in the cloud. This is in addition to Google's own Pay service.

Finally, Titan M provides security options to third-party apps as well. It will work with apps that support e-voting and things like P2P money transfers to authenticate transactions.

Titan M also handles lock-screen passcode verification on Pixel 3 handsets, enforces login attempt limits, and only lets content be decrypted once the user's passcode is verified.

Google says that the chip itself is secure from external interference as well, with the chip only able to receive firmware updates once you've successfully entered your passcode (fingerprint scan etc.).
