The keynote event is set to take place in NY, where Google is expected to make a slew of announcements about its next smartphones, PixelBook tablet, new Chromecast, smart home assistant speaker and Pixel Buds 2. There have been so many leaks about what will be unveiled, the only thing we don't know yet is what colour shirt Sundar Pinchai will be wearing.

The cryptic but fun media invite comes with a simple clue that includes "I 3 NY" phrase, hinting at the Pixel 3 with the numeral in the heart emoticon. It is a wireless charger that props the Pixel up so you can see the screen. In India, Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are expected to launch in the October second week. This time, according to Winfuture.de, the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL will be manufactured by Foxconn Subsidiary FIH mobile, which also makes the Nokia phones for HMD Mobile.

The Google Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL could be quite similar smartphones with several common features and specifications. Although the Geekbench entry specifies Android 9 "Pie" as the operating system, it has been stated that the tablet will utilize Chrome OS, whilst also being capable of installing and running Android apps.

While we might think we've seen everything there is to see regarding the Pixel 3 devices, Google could still surprise us on Tuesday.

As most Android phone makers are moving to the trend of in-display fingerprint sensor, Google decides to stick to the rear mounted circular fingerprint sensor for the Pixel phones this year.

We know there won't be a Pixel Watch or a third phone.

It also features wireless charging and two 8 megapixel front-facing camera.
