  • Google Literally Can't Stop Leaking the Pixel 3

The 3 XL had a huge lead in that department a few weeks ago, but its smaller sibling is slowly starting to pick up the pace - and maybe it still has a chance of catching up.

Let us know your comments below - would you use Google's service or seek your own fix methods? Although we have a new leak today, about the Pixel Stand coming from MySmartPrice. So, now you can download Pixel 3 launcher with the new Google Assitant shortcut.

You can tell that it's definitely not a Pixel 2, since there's that hefty chin featuring the second speaker grill, even if there's nothing here you can't already do on last year's device running the latest Android software.

Samsung is still working on the Samsung Experience 10 which is based on Android Pie for its flagship devices.

Of slightly more interest are some AR features which have been introduced.

Amazon raises minimum wage to $15 for all USA workers
The company is led by Jeff Bezos , who is the world's richest man with a net worth of $150 billion, according to Forbes. Employees who already make $15 an hour will also receive a raise, but Amazon didn't quantify it.

The Google Pixel 3 launch event has been confirmed to be taking place in NY on October 9, but the flagship smartphone's specs and features are not exactly the best-kept secret this close to the release date because of all the leaks. Under the hood, it will run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 6GB and 8GB RAM. The front-facing camera will also apparently have a "Super Selfies" feature, though it's not yet clear what this is.

Thanks to the glass rears, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be compatible with wireless charging. The stand will hold the Pixel 3 in a upright position given it's shape, so the UI will certainly help in easier access. This time we have received the Pixel 3 wallpaper and Piel 3 launcher just before the launch. I guess there is something, after all, we don't know yet about the new Pixel phones.

The hands-on video also confirms wireless charging and claims the haptic feedback is improved on the new model.

The Google Pixel Stand is a wireless charger rather than featuring a specific USB Type-C connector.
