Google Pixel 3 release date leaked ahead of battle with iPhone X

Although Android Pie is released and available for Google Pixel devices today, there's still a few features that are going to wait until the general roll-out in the fall to be available.

The posting declares the Pixel 3 is "launching" on October 4, but it does not clarify whether this is simply an announcement by Google itself or when Android lovers will be able to get their hands on the prized flagship.

A more consistent user experience for Quick Settings with all toggles, plus an updated visual design and added informational subtext. Swiping up from below brings up the app selection menu and swiping from the bottom to the right takes you to a multitasking screen where you can switch between whatever apps you might have open.

Other AI-driven features are more subtle. The update introduces several new features primarily centered around using machine learning to make your phone smarter. New adaptive battery and display features won't be immediately noticeable, but could make a big difference over time. Adaptive Brightness will learn how you like your brightness settings in different applications. The latter will include a set of tools meant to limit the time you spend on your phone, from an App Timer to a new Do Not Disturb mode, a Wind Down function, and of course, a Dashboard for controlling everything. You won't need an unlocked bootloader, but you will need a computer with ADB running.
