Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are compatible with all major US carriers, FCC reveals
The FCC today revealed the existence of two unannounced Google phones that have to be the upcoming Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. The two devices are listed by the FCC with the model numbers G013A and G013C and are clearly labeled as "phones" made by Google. For reference, last year's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have the model numbers G011A and G011C, respectively - there's definitely a pattern here.

While the FCC does not share too much information on the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL, it shows us that the handsets come with all the frequency bands necessary to work on all major US carriers - Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. This isn't exactly surprising, as the Google Pixel 2 series is also compatible with all relevant carriers. Still, it's good to see this confirmed.

Google is expected to officially announce the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL on October 9 in New York City. Thanks to various leaked images, videos, and even an early review, we already know what the two smartphones supposedly look like. The Pixel 3 should be a 5.5-inch device, while the Pixel 3 XL reportedly sports a notched screen of at least 6.2 inches.

If recent rumors are to be believed, Google will not go crazy with the prices of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Of course, we don't think the two phones will be cheap, but we also don't expect any of them to cost $1,000 (as other current high-end handsets).

P.S.: The image seen above comes from Russian website Mobile-review and allegedly shows the back of the Pixel 3 XL.
