The latest reports point to Google releasing the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, alongside the Pixelbook, which runs on Chrome OS.

Google's October 9 press event is also significant since it would be a change of pace for the company.

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have probably been the worst kept secret of 2018. The search engine company Google has started sending media invoices to this event in New York City. The Silicon Valley-based company has a history of introducing new "Made by Google" smartphones in October, and there have been a flood of leaked photos and details about third-generation Pixel handsets heading for market.

By comparison the current 6-inch Pixel 2 XL has slim top and bottom bezels with a camera shooter at top and speakers at top and bottom, introductory price at $849. There's no information yet on why Google chose to change things up for this year, but it's expected that the company will announce other hardware products alongside the Pixel 3 handsets.

Rumors buzzing include that Google plans to release new Pixel models and perhaps an updated Android-powered smartwatch to go with the handsets. Lately, the Pixel 3 XL has been leaked several times in the past few weeks. The back of the device is similar to that of the Pixel 3XL, but it looks like a completely different phone when viewed at the front. The Pixel Stand will allegedly allow users to call on Assistant while their Pixel 3 is wirelessly charging. The Pixel 3 XL has been repeatedly ridiculed by YouTubers due to its ugly notch - we agree, that notch is too big and looks somewhat disgusting. The leaks continued when the Pixel 3 XL was spotted on Toronto's rail system, not once but twice. Prosser was asked to submit clips from some of his previous videos that talk about the Pixel 3 smartphone leaks.

There is a theory brewing that Google is pulling off a complex hoax with its Pixel 3 XL phone, which has been criticized six ways from Sunday for having a giant notch.
