Google Pixel 3 launch date possibly revealed

Google Pixel 3 launch date possibly revealed

We reckon that's some variation or other of the classic cherry pie, but we may never know whether Google likes the sweet or sour kind more. "But these features are available in beta now for Pixel phones running Android 9", wrote Samat.

Brandon Lee posted a video on This is Tech Today's YouTube channel showing a new advert allegedly posted by the tech giant itself on Famebit, a YouTube influencer marketing platform, seeking content makers to promote the new phone in Canada. The description of the campaign shared by the YouTuber showed that the launch of the Pixel 3 is set for October 4. "Looking for Canadian creators only", reads the description.

Apart from coming on many - but not most - existing Android phones, the Android 9 Pie will also be the operating system inside the Google Pixel 3 and the Google Pixel 3 XL that are likely to launch on October 4 this year as the official Android phones of 2018.

Now, technically there is no way to know if this listing was posted by Google or one of its agencies, or whether this is a mistake, so a small dose of salt should be taken regarding this launch date. Other hardware such as a new smartwatch and potentially new wireless earbuds may also be revealed at the Made by Google annual event.

That said, though, Google does have a habit of launching its Pixel phones on October 4th (the Google Pixel 2 range was also announced on October 4, 2017, for example), so this leak does carry some weight in our opinion.

Last week the Google Pixel 3 XL appeared on Geekbench's database, showcasing the potential internals of the device.

The update, which has been available in beta since March, comes with a number of improvements, including new personalization features, battery-saving adjustments, and tools that help you track how much time you're spending on your phone. In addition to a Snapdragon 845 processor, it will come with 4 GB of RAM. The update is rolling out over the air, so if you've got a Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, or Pixel 2 XL, keep an eye out for it.
