Google will be announcing its third-generation Pixel series smartphones tomorrow, i.e. 9th October, at a launch event in NY, along with a few other devices.

If you fancy catching all the announcements as they happen, Google will be streaming its NY event as it happens. If you want to know more about the products to expect at the event, check our helpful roundup that we published at the end of last week.


The two pictures confirm our biggest fear that the Pixel 3 XL will indeed have a sizeable chin and visible bezels, in addition to a notch that will house the two selfie cameras. At the time, we heard a Pixel 3 XL unit was selling for around $2,000 on the black market.

Leaks aside, we're most likely not going to see the Pixel 3 in an official capacity until this afternoon. However, if Google really did place those leaks as a decoy then this would be one of the best marketing stunts pulled by a company in recent years. But, if you start watching at exact 11 a.m. ET, you won't miss much besides music and few-ads.


Google is expected introduce the third generation of Pixel smartphones, with a base and XL model, with wireless charging capabilities remaining a question mark, according to ZDNet. The device would feature a 12.2MP single rear camera and a pair of 8MP front-facing cameras, allowing for extra-wide shots. There are a lot of rumours that Chromecast might not have 4K resolution.

To begin with, the advert shows the Pixel 3 XL sporting that rather infamous notch. The website confirmed that the 3 XL will come with two 8MP front cameras and one of the sensors will have a wide-angle lens. Both this and the smaller variant will be running the Android 9 Pie update as soon as you remove both handsets from their packaging. The Pixel Mini device is tipped to be a mid-range phone that could get a Snapdragon 710 chipset as per a report by Roland Quandt of Winfuture.de. We'll only know tomorrow.


Additional leaked screenshots show that the phone will have a 2,915mAh battery, which is a noteworthy jump in capacity from the Pixel 2.
