Google expected to launch upcoming Pixel handsets on October 9

We started hearing about Google's upcoming Pixel handsets a couple of months back, and since then we've learned that the firm will launch two smartphones, namely the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL in a little over a month.

Now, a new report suggests that Google may announce its duo of devices at a New York City event on October 9.

In an article revolving around Apple's upcoming iPhones, Bloomberg has snuck in a rather interesting statement which suggests that Google will launch the Pixel 3/XL on October 9 instead of October 4. This piece of news is rather interesting since both previous generation Pixel handsets were announced on October 4, and a previous rumor had also hinted at the same date. That said, with Bloomberg having a more credible track record, it's highly possible that Google may have slightly pushed the launch date.

The alleged specifications of the Pixel 3 XL - which still sports the divisive notch - are as follows:

  • 6.7-inch display 1440×2960 resolution
  • Qualcomm 845 processor, Adreno 630
  • 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage
  • 12.2MP rear camera, 3 x 8.1MP front-facing camera
  • Active Edge
  • 3,430 mAh battery
  • Android 9 Pie

Little is known about the Pixel 3 except that it will feature a smaller display (obviously) - which may not feature a notch.

At its purported October 9 event, Google is also expected to announce a Wear OS smartwatch, a second-generation Pixelbook, and perhaps even a "Pixel Stand" - which is wireless charging dock for its upcoming Pixel handsets. That said, these are all rumors and speculations for now, so it is advisable to take this piece of news with a grain of salt.
