Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL Launch Reportedly Set for October 4

Google today released Android 9.0 Pie to Pixel phones.

As first spotted by YouTuber Brandon of This Is Tech Today, Google accidentally slipped the launch date of the Pixel 3 through a campaign posted on its YouTube-specific influencer marketing platform Famebit.

Another feature that won't be arriving until this fall is the Digital Wellbeing service that was shown off at Google I/O in May.
