Google had introduced the original Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones on Oct. 4 in 2016. The successor Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones were unveiled on the same date in 2017. Hence, the rumor mill has been speculating that the search engine giant will be debuting the upcoming Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones on Oct. 4 this year. However, a new report on Bloomberg has revealed that the company will announce the Pixel 3 duo on Oct. 9.
According to a Bloomberg report, people who are familiar with Alphabet Inc.’s have revealed that Google will be launching the new Pixel phones on Oct. 9 through an unveil event in New York City. However, Google is yet to confirm on the launch date.
