There have been multiple instances where the upcoming Google Pixel 3 XL has leaked online.

There's always a lot of hype around the launch event for Google's new Pixel phones.

American multinational tech company Google just unveiled a bunch of new tech gadgets at its 2018 Made By Google event. The selfie camera is of dual camera setup with an 8MP sensor with an 8MP secondary sensor. Both new Google smartphones are so far found to have multiple colour options, including Black, White, and a suspicious "Sand" variant that could be close to the Pink colour. Google could also announce a rumoured Pixel Mini phone and perhaps second generation Pixel Buds and a Pixel tablet as well. That includes many that rely on free software and apps such as the free Android operating system, which powers most of the world's mobile devices, as well as Google's search engine, Google Maps and YouTube.

The story is similar to what we heard last week.

Google will reveal the Pixel 3, along with what is likely to be a slew of other hardware, beginning at 11 AM on October 9. It'll be interesting to see what comes of that long wait. The phone will also allow users to adjust the focus of a photo after it's taken, and another feature will let users snap clearer pictures while zoomed in.

Until September 2014 his registered home address in Moscow was the same as the headquarters of the GRU. British Security Minister Ben Wallace warned Tuesday against underestimating Russian espionage.

Google also rolled out a new device called Home Hub that couples a small display screen with an internet-connected speaker.

Instead of a metallic keyboard, this year there will be a keyboard cover like the one for the iPads. The Huawei MateBook X Pro is now the one to beat.

Nope, some people still don't like the notch apparently, and they have not been shy in getting this point across with the feature present in Google's new Pixel 3 XL.

For photography, the new Pixel 3 series is expected to borrow camera specifications from the predecessor, as there is nothing much surprising in this department. We expect no new front-facing features here and the superior Chromecast Ultra to stick around. Both the XL and the standard models should also have some internal upgrades, such as the Snapdragon 845 CPU and wireless charging support. It's been a while since you could wireless charge a Google phone, so this is a long-overdue homecoming. Multiple images, videos and spec-sheet leaks have given us a pretty good idea of the design of the new Pixel phones.
