The chip is integrated into the bootloader of the phone, so it participates in verifying that the Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL is running the right version of Android, by storing the last known safe version of Android for the device.
"Last year on Pixel 2, we also included a dedicated tamper-resistant hardware security module to protect your lock screen and strengthen disk encryption". While the company made no mention of that fact during its announcement, Top Shot images aren't of the full-resolution variety and are instead limited to three-megapixel (2,048 x 1,536) results, and that's assuming you're satisfied with one of the several frames the Pixel 3 devices "recommend", provided there are any to choose from in the first place.
Typically, the only reason why a Pixel would be SIM locked is if it was being sold by Verizon - or Best Buy as a Verizon reseller - on a multi-month financing plan. The Pixel 3 XL comes with a 4GB RAM too, but offers two storage variants: 64GB and 128GB.
iFixit did not confirm whether the Pixel 3 also uses a Samsung display. Both, however, share the same stock version of Android 9 Pie, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, and 4GB RAM. The battery on the Pixel 3 is a 2915mAh Li-Ion unit, while the Pixel 3 XL gets a larger 3430mAh battery.
