Google confirms Pixel 3 pre-orders begin October 9

Google are really having some fun with us with a phone that is about 15cm in height (approximately the Pixel 2 XL height) and then three much smaller phones, with on apparently small enough to fit on a key ring. "We have a feeling the next one will be a bit bigger than this", read a post on the Made By Google Instagram account.

The video posted by the Google Japan channel on YouTube teases the availability of the Active Edge feature on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

As said before, there will no third Pixel phone this year.

They both will share the same design language, but only on the back. The Google Pixel 3 is expected to be backed by a 2915mAh battery and a 5.5-inch display. Pixel 3 series will come with dual-tone glass-and-metal finish body. Both the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL will also have Android 9 Pie pre-installed as soon as you remove both handsets from their packaging. Recent reports have claimed that Google is incorporating two cameras and front-facing speakers and that's probably why it will have a thick notch.

Sadly, the 3.5mm audio jack will not be making its return in the Pixel 3 series.

Besides this, Google has also teased the colors of the new Google Pixel 3 lineup of devices using a GIF. The attached image shows a series of phones, ranging from a super-tiny device to a large model. It allowed the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL users to trigger Google Assistant by squeezing the phone. But by now we already know what's coming next week. Ask "What are you announcing october 9?" and Google Assistant will feign ignorance. The company has scheduled the launch for October 9 in NY, where it will unveil the device.
