Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL launch event on October 9: release date, prices, preorders, specification, features, global availability, rumors, and more. The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL set to make their first official appearance on 9th October launch event in New York City.
Now, a new report suggests that Google is doing things a little different from its annual Pixel launch tradition. Not only is the company holding the press conference on 9th of October instead of Oct. 4, but the announcement was also moved to the Big Apple.
Additionally, Google has also sent out invites for a similar event in Paris for the same schedule, which suggests Google has pretty huge plans for its Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones.
Earlier this month, the company releases Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL invitations to the press media, indicating that the event will be held in NYC. On 11 September, just a day prior to Apple’s 2018 iPhone announcement, Google threw out invites to French press media. The invite illustrates a similar animated GIF as the mail Google sent out to United States’ media. The invite says, “I <3 Paris” instead of the “I <3 NY” and it comes in pastel colors. The 9to5Google pointed out that the event in Paris is likely intended for the entire European continent, not just France.
The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are the main attractions of the event, but the company is speculated to unveil other hardware. Since Paris and New York are two of the four cities considered as the global “Big Four” fashion capitals of the 21st century, we might see a product(s) that has something to do with the fashion capitals. Dating back in 2015, Apple and Hermes announced their major partnership to produce a special Hermes straps for its wearable smartwatch — Apple Watch. Just yesterday, Apple announced the Watch Series 4 as well as Hermes strap collections at the company’s September 12th event. So, Google might also partner with a French fashion company to create the luxury straps for its rumored wearable smartwatch.
As for the pricing and availablities of the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, the new iterations are expected to go on sale a couple of weeks after the official launch. This on is just pure speculations and should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Google already revealed that the Pixel 3 and its oversized sibling Pixel 3 XL will be announced on October 9th in New York City and in Paris, France.
Apart from the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL and the rumored smartwatch, Google is also expected to unveil a refresh Pixelbooks, as well as new Chromecast and Home smart speakers.
