Google Pixel 3 coming on October 9

The Google Pixel 2 is expected to welcome its new sibling soon.

The rumour mills are spinning at top speed as smartphone launch season gets ready to kick off. With Samsung having announced the Note 9, and Apple expected to respond with a new iPhone next month, Google looks to be getting into the act too with the Pixel 3 slated for an October 9 introduction, according to Bloomberg.

New York is expected to be the venue of the big reveal for the Pixel 3 and other new Google products.

All these announcements are just the tip of the iceberg because the likes of OnePlus and other China brands will surely also make their moves to protect their turf and expand market share.
