This is when Google will officially unveil the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL
The new Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL family of smartphones will be officially unveiled by the company at an event in New York City set for October 9th, according to a report by Bloomberg citing "people familiar with the plans".

The information is not officially confirmed by Google itself, but seems to originate from reliable sources.

October 9th, 2018 falls on a Tuesday this year, and the date is expected to be a couple of weeks after Apple starts selling three new iPhones this year.

The Google Pixel 3 XL, however, has not been exactly a well-kept secret. Quite the opposite: in the past couple of weeks, leaks that all seem to originate from Eastern Europe have shown the phone from all angles, revealed what will be in the box, and all the little features of the new phone. There's even a review of the phone, months before its release (of course, we would not be drawing conclusions from an early unit that's not even released yet)!

Summing all leaks up, the Pixel 3 XL is expected to have a large, 6.7-inch OLED screen with a big notch that seems to annoy many people. The phone will also build upon the successful foundation of the Pixel 2 camera and will still only have a single rear shooter. Of course, it will run on the latest Android 9 Pie.

Are you using the Pixel 2 and are you happy with it? Any plans to get the new Pixel 3?

They should just bump it up because like Samsung and the Note 9 we'll basically already know 90% about the phone and they'll just be telling us what we already know anyway. I know it's not that simple but just saying.

The non-XL pixel has had almost no leaks. I'm pretty interested in that. My first gen non-xl pixel is doing great, but it would be nice to make use of the AR engine that debuted in the 2. Plus, it looks like the screen is going to the 18:9, so it shouldn't be too much like bezel city, like the previous versions.

Same here, I'm waiting for the smaller version.

I hope the non Pixel has goos specs too, and it has at least a 5.4 inch display.

That massive ugly notch though... What the hell were they thinking at Google?

From the notch, to the wasted space of the new "gesture" based navigation, this whole thing is a mess. I'll keep my OnePlus 6.

What kind of special hardware inside that notch? Hopefully 3rd time will be the charm. Kudos for a great camera in a single lens package.

I think the 64gb storage in Pixel XL is wrong, it should have been 128 or 256gb considering the word XL is associated on its name.
