Google Pixel 3 launch date possibly revealed

Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL Launch Reportedly Set for October 4

The name is a bit different compared to previous versions of Android where there was no version number in the name, but hopefully the sweetness of the new OS remains the same.

Google's phones are getting the August 5 security patch level.

It is now only a matter of time to find out when the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will debut.

Popsicle and Pancake regrets aside (everybody likes pancakes, don't they?), we're obviously excited to hear Pixel phones are looking at over-the-air updates to (stable) Android 9 "starting today", with official Beta program participants from third-party companies set to follow suit soon enough.

What's even more spectacular about this leak is that it comes from Google itself - which validates it somewhat.

Tumultuous Iran braces for return of U.S. sanctions
Authorities reported the first fatality among protesters, with the shooting of a man in Karaj, west of Tehran . Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.

Not only that, but it seems the new navigation system for Android P is remarkably similar to the iPhone X's intuitive gestures. And that, according to Google, will help Android 9 Pie learn and get smarter in future.

The PPR1.180610.010 builds for Pixel and Pixel XL are specific to Telus users.

As far as highlights go, we've known pretty much what to expect since Google I/O back in May, with features like Adaptive Battery and Adaptive Brightness at the top of the changelog in terms of importance and impact on battery life and energy efficiency. They include Slices (I guess that was a big hint at the Pie moniker), which shows a short relevant "slice" of an app's information when the system deems it necessary, as well as Google's new digital wellbeing apps.

The ad mentions a Google Pixel 3 launch date of October 4, and says Google is looking for Canadian influencers to review the new phone, in a move some are interpreting as an imitation of Apple's marketing techniques.
