The launch of Google Pixel 3 and 3XL was earlier speculated to be in mid-October this year but fortunately for the users, Google has accidentally given out the exact launch date of the devices. The credit for this slip-up goes to the Google Canada team.
An advertisement on Famebit website that was reportedly published by Google accidentally unveiled the launch date as 4th October. We do have a reason to believe that this might actually be the true date because Google has always released its phones on 4th October so this year we could see a “Made By Google” event on the said date.
If previous leaks are to be believed, the Pixel 3 will sport a full-screen display with dual cameras both up front and back. The Pixel 3 XL will sport a notched display and dual camera on the front as well as the back. The notch, however, is very hefty and is unlike we have seen on any other device.
Google Pixel 3 XL showed up on Geekbench and was spotted by the leaker IceUniverse and corroborating previous rumors that the device would house a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor.
Sadly, it also confirmed that the handset would be running with 4GB of RAM akin to that of mid-range phones currently on the market. This paired with a deep notch is sure to cause controversy among Pixel fans, depending on the price that Google sets for its upcoming handset.
On the software front, the phone will come with the latest version of Android, named as Android P.
