Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL pre-orders stating right after the October 9 event

We’ve got more than one reason to be excited about Google’s October 9 event. We are waiting on a duo of Pixel 3 phones, a Pixelbook, a wireless charging stand and the next-generation Chromecast device. Now more good news arrived – those who are mostly in for the smartphones will be able to pre-order the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL right after the event.

In a promotional email, Google is letting potential Pixel buyers know that they can pre-order both phones after the October 9 event has finished. However, there’s no word on when the actual shipments will start. Our best guess is that it will take at least a week.

The email also contains a .gif with the number 3 transitioning from black to white to mint. So this is probably enough to confirm the rumors of a white Pixel phone and the mint-colored powered button is here to stay.
