Named the date of the presentation of the new Google Pixel

It's official: the new Pixel 3 and 3 XL will be unveiled on October 9 in NY during a dedicated event that will take place at 11:00 am local time. The company has sent out invites to a "Made by Google Launch Event", which takes place at 11 am ET in New York City. As like always, for the fans around the world who can't join at the launch event, there will be a live streaming on the YouTube. Google is also speculated to announce some other devices such as Pixelbook and Pixel Watch along with Pixel smartphones at the event.

The event invite is pretty straightforward, as you can see in the image above. Find us on Facebook too!

As for features, the Pixel 3 XL is set to come with Active Edge functionality, which means that squeezing the device is like saying "Ok Google", according to a report by GSMArena, which reviewed a leaked screenshot of the About screen.

We still have a month, so expecting more leaks conforming what are on the cards. The Pixel 3 should look more like Pixel 2 XL with not so small edges but at least without a notch. At one point it seemed as if Google itself was driving the torrents of leaks to build up hype around its upcoming products.

However, in the United States, and for those that prefer stock Android, the Pixel 3 XL and OnePlus 6T will be the two best options. The phone will reportedly come with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage and will run on the Android 9.0 Pie.

Renders of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL leaked online show that the third-generation Pixel smartphones will look like their older second-generation siblings, only with some minor details added. "The camera will be 12.2 megapixel and the display will be 5.5". Both the handsets are said to sport a single camera and a circular fingerprint sensor on the back. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL followed in the footsteps of their original models and hit millions of units sold during their first weeks of availability. Clearly, we had to take these rumours with a pinch of salt.
