Google Pixel 3 launch date possibly revealed

Unfortunately, the Pixel 3 XL scored lower on the benchmark than other devices with the 845, though this is likely to change between the production test unit and the final version of the device, so there's no need to fear just yet.

Google seems to have posted a listing for an October 4 Pixel 3 launch event on Famebit, its influencer marketing platform created to help brands connect with YouTubers.

Famebit acts as a direct link between marketing agencies and YouTube creators.

Although Android Pie is released and available for Google Pixel devices today, there's still a few features that are going to wait until the general roll-out in the fall to be available. "Looking for Canadian creators only", reads the description.

The listing clearly says that "the Pixel 3 phone is launching 4 October, 2018".

After months of seeing shot after shot of barely-camouflaged prototypes, just about the only thing that hasn't leaked out about the Pixel 3 has been the launch date for Google's next phone.

In any case, the Pixel 3 will probably be available to buy one or two weeks after the announcement.


Folks at Android Police separately verified the existence of the Pixel 3 campaign on Famebit.

October is when Google usually unveils the Pixel phone (or phones).

Internet gadget fiends have been pretty confident that the Pixel 3 will arrive in the autumn, with famed leaker Evan Blass suggesting as much back in May.

Last week the Google Pixel 3 XL appeared on Geekbench's database, showcasing the potential internals of the device.

The listing showed the Pixel 3 XL achieving a single-core score of 2,426 and a multi-core score of 8,355.

Today, Google announced Android 9 Pie, the next version of OS which has been in testing since February.
