Google Pixel 3 launch date shown as October 4 in ad posting

Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL Launch Reportedly Set for October 4 Google Pixel 3 release date revealed in extraordinary leak

We've known for a while now that Google has high hopes for its incoming Pixel 3 range of smartphones, and has seemingly engineered them with just one main focus, gun down Apple's new iPhone range.

The finished version of the Android P has arrived and Google is calling it Android 9 Pie.

Google announced the official name for the next version of Android, along with the update's initial release, Monday. The Essential Phone is the only non-Pixel device to have received the update and will stay that way for at least a few days until everyone else starts updating their devices. Interestingly enough, the first-gen Pixel phones, and the second-gen Pixel devices all launched on October 4, so this is not exactly surprising.

To check to see if the update is live, head into Settings System System Update. Instead, you now simply swipe up on the screen to see your recently-used apps, just like you would on an iPhone X. There are a number of other gesture-based shortcuts to get used to as well.

He said the Malaysian government was ready to provide further aid to their Indonesian counterparts as necessary. Geological Survey said the quake struck at a depth of 7 kilometers (4.4 miles).

You can find out more over on the Android Pie website.

Android fans will not have to wait long to see if the latest Google Pixel 3 leak is true with October only being a couple months away. Appearing at the top of your app drawer, app actions are similar to Apple's Siri suggestions, which also suggest specific shortcuts for the things you do al the time, like look up directions home or pull up your favorite playlist. There are improvements to battery life - hello "Adaptive Battery" - and improvements to Android's handling of different lighting conditions thanks to Adaptive Brightness.

"We've built Android 9 to learn from you - and work better for you - the more you use it".

An app timer is kind of like parental controls, but for yourself, because you can't stop using your smartphone? Similarly, Adaptive Brightness will automatically adjust the display brightness to your current location and what you are doing on the device. You won't need an unlocked bootloader, but you will need a computer with ADB running.
