Google's New Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL Smartphones Likely to Debut at Upcoming October 9 Event
Google today sent out invitations to members of the media for a "Made by Google" event that's set to be held in New York City on Tuesday, October 9.
At the event, Google is likely to unveil its Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones, which will be competing with the trio of new iPhones that Apple is set to unveil next week.
The 6.2-inch Pixel 3 XL will feature a deep iPhone X-style notch that's been the subject of jokes on the internet since early images leaked, while it looks like the smaller 5.5-inch Pixel 3 will be notchless.
Wireless charging will be available on both devices through glass rear shells, and the two smartphones will feature single-lens rear cameras and dual front-facing cameras. A fingerprint sensor is located at the back of each device, and given the inclusion of USB-C headphones and a USB-C to audio jack device, it looks like the Pixel 3 will not feature a headphone jack.
In past years, Google has unveiled multiple other products at fall events, so there are likely other devices Google is set to debut aside from the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
Apple is unveiling its own new 2018 smartphone lineup a month ahead of Google on Wednesday, September 12. Rumors suggest we can expect to see a 5.8-inch OLED iPhone Xs, a 6.5-inch OLED iPhone Xs Max, and lower-priced 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display.
