Google Pixel 3 release date revealed in extraordinary leak

Google Pixel 3 release date revealed in extraordinary leak

Now with a proper name, Pie, the OS is ready for release and is available if you have a Google-branded phone. This was the case for the original Pixel back in 2016, the Pixel 2 in 2017, and it seems that for 2018, the upcoming Pixel 3 (and Pixel 3 XL) are also expected to be officially announced on the 4th of October as well, making it the third time Google has kept to the this date in a row. Also of note is that the Essential Phone is now receiving its update to Android Pie, which is a great move by Essential.

The Pixel phones have been widely praised for their photographic capability but, perhaps more importantly, they are also at the forefront of any Android updates.

For Google, the Android 9 Pie is a major update, even though it doesn't come with significant changes in terms of the user interface. "Next time you search for Lyft, you can see prices and driver ETAs right within your results". Slices (a pun on pie, apparently) is a new feature where apps can insert themselves into your searches so you can perform a task quicker. The update introduces several new features primarily centered around using machine learning to make your phone smarter.

Hawaii braces for Category 3 hurricane
Spaghetti models and charts show Hurricane Hector passing within a hairsbreadth of Hawaii's Big Island, where Kilauea rages on. Additional strengthening is expected through the weekend, though at a slower rate, the National Hurricane Center said.

Although the advert claims the phone is launching on October 4, it's not clear if this is simply the announcement of its existence or the actual on-sale date.

Apart from the Digital WellBeing, other key features of the Android P include Adaptive Battery, Adaptive Brightness, App Actions, Slices and Smart Text Selections. This actually encompasses several different features that all aim to help you improve your life. Anyone who has used an iPhone X is going to be pleasantly surprised, as Android Pie integrates a bunch of swipe features into Android's UI.

Volume controls: Simpler, more accessible volume controls let you control media volume instantly, as well as quickly toggle call and notification volume settings. If you've got a Pixel or Essential Phone, grab your Android Pie update today and be sure to let us know what you think of it!
