Google’s Pixel 3 Could Be Announced On October 4

At the time of publishing, we could not see Android 9 Pie update on our Pixel 2 XL, which is already running Android P Beta 4.

The "P" stands for "Pie".

In true Essential fashion, the company is rolling out the Android Pie update to its only device; the PH1. The Essential Phone was one of the third-party preview devices, which goes to show you how proper use of Project Treble can improve updates.

Those that have the Essential Phone and have yet to see the update notification pop up can always head into the settings menu, enter the system settings, and tap "update".

Finally, Android's Do Not Disturb mode gets a boost from Digital Wellbeing too.




You can expect the Pixel 3 lineup to arrive on October 4.

YouTube creators and marketing agencies use Famebit as a middle ground to coordinate sponsored content. Brandon Lee of AndroidPolice and YouTube channel This is Tech Today identified a posting on Famebit requesting promotion for the Pixel 3. I suspect it will start as an exclusive on the Pixel 3 and 3 XL.

For the past two iterations of Google's Pixel phones, the unveiling has happened on October 4. That is also where you will find the system images containing the the new security update for the six aforementioned handsets. New adaptive battery and display features won't be immediately noticeable, but could make a big difference over time. Apple's also worked on something along these lines, and Google has to follow suit now that some people are calling smartphones addictive. If not, be sure to read the instructions on Google's website very closely before you attempt it.

Android 9 learns and adapts to usage patterns and comes with features like Adaptive Battery, which learns the apps you use most and prioritises battery for them.

Then you just head to this page and sign up for the Digital Wellbeing beta. Providing you have the right device, you can either update using the OTA image (which doesn't require you to have an unlocked bootloader) or using the factory image (which is faster and doesn't require an unlocked bootloader, but riskier).
