Google Pixel 3 release date leaked ahead of battle with iPhone X

Google Pixel 2 with logo

The description of the campaign shared by the YouTuber showed that the launch of the Pixel 3 is set for October 4. Other hardware such as a new smartwatch and potentially new wireless earbuds may also be revealed at the Made by Google annual event.

Although the advert claims the phone is launching on October 4, it's not clear if this is simply the announcement of its existence or the actual on-sale date.

FameBit is Google's own YouTube influencer marketing platform, where brands and creators/influencers meet to shake hands on getting paid to promote products and services. This particular ad is for the Pixel 3 and is looking for Canadian influencers to switch to the Pixel 3 upon release.

We've known for a while now that Google has high hopes for its incoming Pixel 3 range of smartphones, and has seemingly engineered them with just one main focus, gun down Apple's new iPhone range. Google may be spending a hefty portion of its marketing budget attempting to convert more iPhone and Galaxy users over to the Pixel.

PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi steps down
She pushed PepsiCo far beyond its cola roots, expanding into hummus, kombucha and other healthier products with mixed results. Nooyi has been with PepsiCo for 24 years, with the last 12 as CEO .

To date, Google's Pixel phones have been announced on the 4th of October.

Unfortunately, the Pixel 3 XL scored lower on the benchmark than other devices with the 845, though this is likely to change between the production test unit and the final version of the device, so there's no need to fear just yet. Since the post was taken down, its origin can not be independently verified. In addition to the new Pixel phones, a smartwatch and possibly new wireless Pixel Buds are also expected to be unveiled. "Have a great summer!"

There is no shortage of delicious treats and elaborate desserts starting with the letter P, but after going down the commercial brand route previous year with Oreo, and snubbing fan favorite Nutella to choose the less liked Nougat back in 2016, Google has chose to keep things simple (and vague) for the all-new Android 9 Pie version.
