As always, the search giant will live-stream the event on its official YouTube channel, Made by Google. The event is scheduled to start at 11 AM ET on Tuesday, October 9th. The smaller Pixel 3, however, looks like a shrunken version of last year's Pixel 2 XL.

Too aware of the Fake Rumor about Google Pixel 3 XL preorder, Google itself has been teasing the Pixel3 and Pixel 3 XL via promotional emails for the upcoming event, where it will be confirmed that when preorder will begin. Moreover, Google is also expected to add wireless charging to the Pixel devices for the first time.

The next-generation smartphones from Google have already been leaked very widely and reports have it that it is even being sold in Hong Kong. The smartphone will most certainly be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM, and run stock Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box. It is assumed that Pixel 3 XL will have an iPhone like notch display. The device would feature a 12.2MP single rear camera and a pair of 8MP front-facing cameras, allowing for extra-wide shots.

Recently, serial tipster Evan Blass also shared a new render of the upcoming Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL.

The estimated leakage of pixel 3 can be seen below.


As Unwire points out, the Pixel 3 XL isn't a complete game changer, but it does bring Google up to speed with numerous other third-party Android phone makers.

The Google Home Hub is expected to be an Amazon Echo-like device that will feature a 7-inch screen and a speaker. The pictures flaunt the tablet utilizing Chrome OS and a detachable keyboard. The tablet will likely be compatible with the Pixel Book Pen.

While there have been a lot of rumours and leaks about the 2018 Pixel phones, the information on the up and coming Google tablet has been scarce.

So, let's take a look at what are to expect from tomorrow as the event takes off.

After all the leaks, it's not surprising to know that Google will also reveal a new Chromecast dongle just like previous year.
