Going to the keynote, Google probably won't have anything new to announce, expect the accessories.

You can read the full thing here.

If you want to hear all the latest news from Google, Express.co.uk will be at the event and will bring you every update live as it happens.

Apparently, the increase in size doesn't affect the handset's usability in a negative fashion either, which is good. Of particular interest is that Pixel 3 XL leaks have shown a device with a notch design, a'la the iPhone X. This shouldn't come as much of a surprise given that Google has precise guidelines for how Android P should support notch design. Supposedly, the notch of the Google Pixel 3 XL will provide a functionality called "Super Selfies" with f/1.8 and f/2.2 apertures.

Also, while this may be more of a personal preference than anything else, the 16:9 aspect ratio of the Pixel 2's screen just looks weird after using so many phones with 18:9 setups. The Google Pixel 3 XL comes with revamped Camera app where you can set three different focal lengths settings.

As Unwire points out, the Pixel 3 XL isn't a complete game changer, but it does bring Google up to speed with numerous other third-party Android phone makers. Under the hood, both the smartphones are likely to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 SoC clubbed with a 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal memory.

In benchmark tests, it scored 217356 - a very decent score.

Whether the heftier battery results in longer-lasting battery life remains to be seen, since the Pixel 3 XL has a larger display than its predecessor, which will require more power. The renders show a Chrome OS tablet with front and rear cameras, a Google logo, and what may be front-facing speakers.

All will be revealed later tomorrow but ahead of the launch event Google's current flagship, the Pixel 2, has been slashed in price.

Google is no stranger to the tablet market. There's also speculation around it having 16GB of RAM and an Intel i7 processor. He said, "Then when I was at the cashier, they couldn't scan the item because it wasn't in the system yet because the release date is on the 9th of October (Same day as the 2018 Google event) but I guess they put it out too early".
