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.

I wonder if that includes tmobile's band 71? I have seen "fully compatible" phones not include this band.

The 2 strongest selling pts for Pixels are: 1) Fast OS updates 2) Compatibility with all major N.A. carriers So this is the phone to get if you don't care about anything else. For me, the high price, lack of a headphone jack, and a notch, are deal killers.

And stock android, and pixel 3 doesn't have a notch. I have a galaxy note 8 and I'm fed up of this cartoonish look. What about the headphone jack? You can still listen to the music. What a load of rubbish...

Regular Pixel is cheaper and no notch. Still no headphone jack though afaik.
