Highly anticipated: A marketing post allegedly made by Google on Famebit shows that the Pixel 3 will be launching on October 4. The only exception is Essential, which is saying that the Android Pie update will be available for the Essential PH-1 today.

After some initial rumours and leaks, Google has now reportedly confirmed the launch date of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

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. Such a listing exists for the Pixel 3, looking for Canadian creators.


"For this campaign, Google is looking for Canadian creators whoa re not now Google Pixel users but are willing to switch to the Pixel 3".

As first spotted by YouTuber Brandon of This Is Tech Today, Google accidentally slipped the launch date of the Pixel 3 through a campaign posted on its YouTube-specific influencer marketing platform Famebit.

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


The company's rumoured Pixel 3 phone is shaping up to go toe-to-toe with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Apple's next version of the iPhone X.

He said: "Besides the Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, and second-gen Pixel Buds, a reliable source tells me - with high confidence - that Google's fall hardware event will also introduce a Pixel-branded watch".

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


The Pixel 3 will undoubtedly launch with Android P (the next version of the operating system) installed as standard and will also get all those important security updates in a timely fashion.
