The official release of the Google Pixel 3 is slated to happen in a few more days but tipsters on the internet had already revealed few details about the device where these phones were unboxed and their specifications made public.

But there's also been a theory going around that at least some of the leaks were planned by Google to sow disinformation before the event, and that there's going to be some big reveal at tomorrow's release that no one saw coming.

That would make sense as Google has a history of launching two devices at these events. We recently reported that Google has been asking YouTubers to send clips of them criticizing the notch.

Rumours are rife that a Pixel 3 and larger Pixel 3 XL are inbound.

We've seen the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Apple has unveiled its iPhone XS lineup, but the Android faithful also have a flagship handset to look forward to: the Pixel 3.

There has been a ton of Pixel 3 and 3 XL use in the wild.

That rear camera is 12.2MP and the two front-facing ones are 8.1MP each, according to yet another Russian leak. The livestream is scheduled to start at 11 a.m.

Lastly, real-life Google Pixel 3 photos had also popped up online, confirming the soon-to-be-launched smartphone's design. Inside, you'll find 4GB of RAM and 64GB of non-expandable storage - just like last year's Pixel 2.

There's nothing official yet announced but rumours suggest these phones won't be cheap. The Pixel Mini device is tipped to be a mid-range phone that could get a Snapdragon 710 chipset as per a report by Roland Quandt of Winfuture.de.

The leak further suggests that dual camera setup on the front will have one sensor for normal selfies and one for wide angle selfies. Both this and the smaller variant will be running the Android 9 Pie update as soon as you remove both handsets from their packaging.

Despite all that, Google is here to let everyone know that maybe we don't know everything about the upcoming phone. But Google can't seem to control these sort of leaks this year, or the stores that are supposed to sell the devices.
