Google schedules Pixel 3 launch for October 9th


Google has started sending out invitations to an event in New York City which is scheduled for October 9th. While the invitation doesn’t specifically mention the Pixel 3, the “I <3 NY” included in the invite does have a subtle “3” hint in it. The launch of last year’s Pixel 2 took place on October 19th, so the October 9th date isn’t too far off.

The upcoming Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have shown up in quite a few leaks already, revealing what the phones look like, their unique software features and internal specifications. Neither of the phones are expected to overpower devices like the OnePlus 6 or the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, but Google’s Pixel line has never been about packing in every possible hardware feature under the sun.

We expect the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL to highlight Google’s pure vision of Android while also delivering the best single-sensor camera experience on a smartphone. Of course, many will have a hard time overlooking the Pixel 3 XL’s massive notch, but we don’t think that will really hurt the success of Google’s Pixel 3 lineup.

Are you eagerly awaiting the launch of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL or have you already settled for a different 2018 flagship Android smartphone?
