Google Pixel 3 release date revealed in extraordinary leak

06 August 2018

As far as highlights go, we've known pretty much what to expect since Google I/O back in May, with features like Adaptive Battery and Adaptive Brightness at the top of the changelog in terms of importance and impact on battery life and energy efficiency.

A new leak suggests Google is going to stick to tradition by launching the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL on October 4.

For the past two iterations of Google's Pixel phones, the unveiling has happened on October 4. In the Campaign Goals section, Google says it's looking for creators "who are not now Pixel users" who are willing to switch, and then tell their story of how the process went.

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. The campaign was aimed to receive participation from Canadian content creators who are not using any Google Pixel handsets but are willing to switch to the Pixel 3.

Google appears to have inadvertently shared the launch date for its long-awaited Pixel 3 smartphone - and is apparently looking for "influencers" to review the phone for up to $10,000 a pop.

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 announced its original Pixel and the Pixel 2 on October 4, so the company choosing to announce its third generation device on the same date would line up with tradition. You don't need to wait for the Pixel OTA, though. "Have a great summer!"

The listing showed the Pixel 3 XL achieving a single-core score of 2,426 and a multi-core score of 8,355.

The "P" stands for "Pie".
