Not breaking away from its launch tradition, Google will unveil its 2018 Pixel phones on October 4 - the same date when previous generation Pixel phones were announced.

DetailsWhat does the FameBit listing tell us?

The ad calls for Canadian creators for a sponsored video on sharing their story about how and why they switched to a Pixel 3 device.

And while a lot of companies do seek such influencers to market their devices around the launch, we cannot really confirm if the ad posted on FameBit is an official Google ad.

Hence, take the news with a grain-of-salt.

DesignMeanwhile, Glass backs and notched displays are on the cards

Unlike previous Pixel devices which were mostly made of metal, Google has decided to give the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL a full glass back.

Whether that'll also mean wireless charging remains to be seen.

Meanwhile, the Pixel 3 will feature a display with slim top and bottom bezels, while the Pixel 3 XL will feature a bezel-less notched display.

CamerasSeems like Google is going for dual front cameras

Both the phones, according to the renders, seem to spot a single camera module at the back, indicating that Google has decided to not go with the trends of dual and triple rear cameras.

Interestingly, the renders show dual front cameras, which echoes an earlier report by Bloomberg.

However, it's unclear as to whether both are cameras or one is an ambient light sensor.

Well, what about the specs of the phones?

As for the specifications of the Pixel 3 devices, nothing concrete is known. However, it's expected that both the phones will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processors under the hood, and will sport at least 6GB of RAM.

What is the cost of Google Pixel 3 and 3XL?
