Pixel 3 teaser might indicate a third mint aqua color

Pixel 3 teaser might indicate a third mint aqua color

The third-generation Google Pixel leaks continue. At this point, the company doesn't seem to have anything hidden from us — unless you believe the wild conspiracy theories about a mystical notch-less Ultra Pixel. Even Google seems to have given up on hiding things and, in a teaser for the new Pixels on its Japanese site, has revealed a potentially third aqua/mint color.

Apple's "cheap" iPhone Xr just ate Google's lunch

Apple's "cheap" iPhone Xr just ate Google's lunch

For years, fans and analysts alike have clamored for Apple to release a proper "mid-range" iPhone. Today, they finally got what they wanted - sort of. The new iPhone Xr represents an entirely new direction for the iPhone lineup, and one that poses a serious threat to "flagship" tier Android phones that lurk anywhere above its $749 MSRP.

While you may be thinking "there's nothing 'mid-range' about $749," be reminded that the iPhone Xs and Xs Max cost $1000 and $1100, respectively, making the all-new Xr a fairly significant price cut in Apple terms. It's also not even the smallest iPhone: the Xr features a 6.1" LCD (the Xs is a 5.8" OLED, the Max is 6.5") that Apple claims will wipe the floor with any other in terms of color accuracy, and given their history, I believe them.

Phones are boring, so now we're making up conspiracy theories about them

Phones are boring, so now we're making up conspiracy theories about them

The Pixel 3 XL may be the most reliably leaked smartphone of 2018. It's been seen on a train, it's been accidentally left in a car, appeared in about a half dozen hotels and airports, and it's even been reviewed by a Russian blog that managed to get one of a handful of stolen units that showed up in Ukraine. So much has leaked about the phone that essentially all of that wonderful pre-launch mystery has been sapped, and a sobering (if predictable) reality has set in: Google's next phone is not really all that different from any other phone released in 2018.

Google sends out invitations for October 9 event in NYC

Google has just sent out invitations to an event on October 9th in New York City, confirming a previous report from Bloomberg and discrediting a previous rumor for October 4th. It's all but confirmed that we'll be seeing the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL there, but unfortunately not the Pixel Watch due to a recent decision.

FCC documents for the Pixel 3 and 3 XL become public, confirm Band 12/71 support and wireless charging

In case you somehow needed more evidence that the Pixel 3 and 3 XL are happening (and that there is not a mythical 'backup' 3 XL with no notch), both devices have now been certified by the FCC. The online documents don't reveal much that hasn't already been spoiled, but there are a few interesting details that appear to be new.

The Pixel 3 XL has been leaking left and right, and to put it lightly, people have not been happy with its massive notch. We're finally getting to see the smaller Pixel 3 for the first time, and it looks like this may be the Pixel to get this year for many of you.

[Update: Maybe not] The Pixel 3 will only have gesture navigation, with no option for standard nav buttons

[Update: Maybe not] The Pixel 3 will only have gesture navigation, with no option for standard nav buttons

As we all know by now, Google's implementation of gesture navigation is pretty lackluster. Given that it still takes up the same amount of space as the regular nav bar, it doesn't have any real benefits and just makes things confusing. You'll probably be disappointed to hear that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will ship with gesture navigation, and there won't be an option to use the standard three-button layout that's been part of Android for years.
