This, however, didn't stop the leaks as 9to5google found a new leak exposing the camera features of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

Several have noted that this could mean Google will enable connectivity with wireless headphones, or a controller, akin to a Roku remote - a feature that has reportedly been requested by users for a while now. The Google Pixel 3 XL comes with revamped Camera app where you can set three different focal lengths settings. The firm is also expected to launch a new tablet computer - the Pixel Slate. And that's how much you'd have to pay for the Pixel 3 XL in Hong Kong right now. There have been so many leaks about what will be unveiled, the only thing we don't know yet is what colour shirt Sundar Pinchai will be wearing.

Either way, the event today kicks off at 11AM Eastern (8AM Pacific)!

The Pixel 2 (64GB) started at $649 with Verizon at launch and the Pixel 2 XL (64GB) cost $849.

The Pixel 3 is rumoured to include a 3,915mAh battery, while the Pixel 3 XL could have a 3,430mAh battery. Google launched its line of high-end phones two years ago to better compete against Apple, Samsung and other device makers.
