Those still skeptical over the leak need remember that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL also launched on 4 October past year, so the date does match usual Google plans. "But these features are available in beta now for Pixel phones running Android 9", wrote Samat.

YouTuber Brandon Lee shared an advert posted from Google's Famebit site on his channel This Is Tech Today.

Although there's not much news about at the moment regarding the design or components of the Pixel 3, we're sure to hear more as the calendar gets closer to October 4.

It reads: "The Pixel 3 phone is launching October 4, 2018".

Folks at Android Police separately verified the existence of the Pixel 3 campaign on Famebit.

It was Aguero's 200th City goal - making the Argentina striker the first player to reach that milestone for the Eastlands outfit. Chelsea have signed just one player this summer who is likely to be directly involved in the first-team - that's Jorginho .

"Once comfortable with the Pixel 3 and the creator has successfully switched over their contacts, apps, etc to their new phone, Google wants them to share their switching story with the audience".

Now there's no way of knowing if this ad was actually purchased by Google so there is a chance that it could be fake. Other hardware such as a new smartwatch and potentially new wireless earbuds may also be revealed at the Made by Google annual event. Over-the-air updates will begin rolling out to Google's Pixel devices in the next few hours, while anyone with a different Android phone will have to wait until sometime in the fall for their smartphone manufacturer to get their act together.

Should this marketing post turn out to be true, it also gives us some information on how Google intends to market the Pixel 3. In addition to a Snapdragon 845 processor, it will come with 4 GB of RAM.

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