According to the first leaks concerning Google’s Pixel 3 models, the incoming flagship smartphones are in the making and even have an approximate launch date. The leak has put to rest the rumors that the Pixel 3 may not even exist.
Evan Blass, who is known for other leaks that later proved incredibly accurate, has confirmed the existence of the two Pixel models, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. The tipster claims that a “reliable source” has told him that Google will release only two Pixel models, unlike Apple who is eyeing three designs for its iPhone X.
In addition, the leaker told Blass that the upcoming phones from Google would be expensive. Tipsters also said the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will likely be unveiled at one of the company’s events this fall.
Google has not confirmed the event, but last year, it held the event on October 4. Experts expect this year’s event to be slated for late September or early October. If the rumors hold water, the two Pixel models will be two of the last releases this year.
Hardware Changes Remain Unknown
It is unclear what hardware changes the new phones will sport. Pixel fans dream of a better camera (with a 3x optical zoom, preferably), slimmer bezels, louder speakers, and no notch.
Blass also learned that the company will unveil the second generation of Pixel Buds and roll out a Pixel smartwatch, which will be the first of its kind.
Pixel Buds have been a controversial topic, but they have a solid fan base. Fans claim that the AI assistant and audio quality of Google’s earbuds are better than those of Apple’s Airpods. A smartwatch will be a welcome addition to the Pixel family, as it could be the last chance for Google to revive its dying WearOS platform.
