Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are set to be shown off by Google at its scheduled hardware events in New York City, London and Paris that are taking place simultaneously.

Pixel 3 is expected to come touting much faster internals, a better display and an improved camera system.

And leaks for both devices ahead of their official unveiling appear to suggest both the smaller and larger variant of the Pixel 3 are set for a radical redesign.

Alleged Pixel 3 photos have shown it featuring noticeable bezels on the top and bottom of the device, but still much smaller than those present on the Pixel 2.

Meanwhile the Pixel 3 XL appears to have been hit the hardest by outings and was shown featuring an all-screen design with a notch at the top.

The back of both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL look very similar; the pair have been shown touting a familiar body comprised of both glass and brushed aluminium.


Both smartphones have been presented with a single rear camera sensor.

Meanwhile, it appears the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will feature two front-facing cameras on the front of the hardware.

While many leaks have shown off the features of the forthcoming Android flagships, it appears a new outing may have revealed a big surprise ahead of an official announcement tomorrow.

Freedom Mobile, a Canadian mobile network, recently listed the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL on its website.

Although the promotions for the phone have since been taken down, images of the post were captured by a tipster and sent to 9to5Google.

A new “not pink” colour was listed for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL and was available in a 64GB model while other colours appeared to be selectable in both 64GB and 128GB capacities.

Images shown of the devices appeared to line up with previous leaks about the products, adding further credence to such design choices.

But Freedom Mobile appeared to offer a “Google Pixel stand” as a freebie for those that pre-ordered either the Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL.

The Google Pixel stand emerged in prior leaks and appears to be a wireless charging pad for the forthcoming flagships, suggesting they will support such a method of charging.

Moreover it has been rumoured when a Pixel 3 is placed on the device it may be able to harness the power of Google Assistant without the user having to manually turn on the device.

Such a feature seems set on allowing users to perform a multitude of Assistant tasks such as setting timers and asking questions.

This could allow the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL to replicate similar functionality to that of Google Home.

Bundling in a Google Pixel stand with the new Android device could prove to be extremely tempting for fans of the American tech giant.

And such a surprise move would not be completely alien for Google that previously gave away Daydream View headsets with pre-orders for the original Pixel and Google Home mini devices for those that pre-ordered the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

The Pixel 3 XL was listed as arriving with a 6.3-inch display, 64GB or 128GB of storage and a 3,430mAh battery.Meanwhile, the regular Pixel 3 was described as coming with a 5.5-inch panel at a 1080p resolution.
