Pre-orders for the Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL will start immediately after their unveiling

We already know that Google will hold its #madebygoogle event in New York City on October 9th. That is when we expect to see the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL introduced. And according to the company's own promotional material, pre-orders for both phones will begin immediately following the event. So if you're impressed with the presentation next Tuesday, you can act on your desires immediately by pre-ordering the Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL on the same day they are announced.
Google Assistant to help spread the word about the October 9th event. Google says that if you squeeze the sides of a Pixel handset to activate Google Assistant, you can learn more information about the event by asking several questions such as:Besides sending out promos by email, Google is also counting on its popular
- "What's this announcement about?" (answer: "I'm rehearsing my lines as we speak. Looks like there might be something about a new phone-and maybe, just maybe a few other new things.")
- "When are you making this announcement" (answer: "I've got a little something planned for October 9th. You can watch the livestream on YouTube.")
- "How can I find out more about this announcement?" (answer: "You can watch the livestream on October 9th. Or you can try going to a palm reader before that.")
Besides the two new Pixel handsets, we could also see the Google Home Hub smart display unveiled on October 9th. This product will feature a 7-inch LCD display, speakers, and Google Assistant. Users will be able to stream YouTube videos, view song lyrics, recipes, the baby's room and more. One feature that it apparently won't have is a front-facing camera, which means that the Home Hub won't work with Google's own Duo video-chatting app.
If you've been eyeing the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL leaks, don't forget to circle October 9th on your calendar.

Would be a tempting phone if I could get it through Jump on Demand with T-Mobile... At least with the pixel 1 and 2 you had to go through google or Verizon. I trade my phones in too much to buy them and not lease them...

Of course it's gonna be right after the announcement. Everyone already knows everything about the device and they don't want buyers having second thoughts about purchasing a phone with a HUGE notch.

Notches are fine when they serve a purpose such as FaceID (since it's not a simple camera behind it but the technology and IR). Otherwise you're just getting a status bar at that same area and it's already used screen real estate, what really its the tragedy is that unacceptably large chin. Sure Apple uses a technique that's more expensive to reproduce and harder to do in order to reduce and eliminate the chin, but when phones cost almost the same amount they have no excuse for having such a large chin.

If the smaller Pixel 3 is priced anywhere near what the Galaxy S9 was it will be an absolute steal IMO and most likely my next phone.
