Android fans don’t have long to wait to get their hands on the new Google Pixel 3.
The new flagship phone is rumoured to be released in the coming months, with some massive upgrades on the Pixel 2.
Rumours flying around the internet claim to know what the phone will look like and what it will be capable of, but Google is yet to confirm anything as of yet.
Google usually releases a flagship phone around October, with the release coinciding with the launch of Android P.
The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were announced on October 4, 2017, with pre-orders starting immediately afterwards.
They began to hit shelves on October 17 so Android fans should expect to see the new Pixel devices announced within the same timeframe.
When is Google Pixel 3 out in the UK?
Google is rumoured to be releasing two new Pixel 3 phones in 2018, with a Pixel Watch also suggested for launch around the same time.
Speculation started after Google released a public Beta for the new Android P operating system, which is available for download now.
Google has not confirmed any rumours as yet, though fans have attempted to work out a release date based on Google’s previous launches.
For the past two years, Google has unveiled the new phones on October 4, so this date is as good a guess as any.
Google Pixel release date: When is Google Pixel 3 out in the UK?
They will come with the latest version of Android – Android 9.0 P – but as we saw in 2017, they may not be the first devices to ship with that OS.
It will be a pure version of the software, running exactly as Google intends, with regular security updates dropping automatically.
It is unlikely google will reveal the Google Pixel 3 before October, but Google still may surprise us yet.

What are the rumoured features and specifications for the Google Pixel 3?
The biggest rumour to emerge online is the new Google Pixel phones will feature a notch display and smaller bezels.
Leaked images from Weibo suggest the Pixel 3 will have an XL counterpart, with both phones potentially featuring front-facing stereo speakers and dual front-facing cameras.
Google knows its users don’t want cut-down specs just because a phone has a smaller screen, so fans are expecting to see the Snapdragon 845 processor powering all Pixel 3 models.
This is a 7nm chip that is faster and 30 percent more efficient than any before it, thanks to an octa-core Kryo 385 CPU with four 2.8GHz high-power cores and four 1.8GHz low power cores.
Qualcomm’s new super-fast X20 LTE modem is built-in, offering CAT 18 speeds of more than 1Gbps, as well as an enhanced Spectra 280 image signal processor.
Qualcomm has bumped up video recording potential to Ultra-HD, and added in various AI improvements.
Fans might also see the RAM boosted to 6GB, while storage may stay at 64GB and 128GB.
What will the new Google Pixel 3 look like?
