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

Now, the final build of Android 9 is out, and it's called Pie.

These features, however, are available in beta form for Pixel owners and will be available in production form in time for the wide release of Android 9 Pie.

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.

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". The OTA is rolling out now to Pixel phones from 2016 and 2017, which is no surprise. "But these features are available in beta now for Pixel phones running Android 9", wrote Samat. In any case, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL had surfaced in a number of images thus far, while some additional info also popped up, so we pretty much know what to expect out of the two phones.

Highly anticipated: A marketing post allegedly made by Google on Famebit shows that the Pixel 3 will be launching on October 4.

Google announced the official name for the next version of Android, along with the update's initial release, Monday. New adaptive battery and display features won't be immediately noticeable, but could make a big difference over time. And that, according to Google, will help Android 9 Pie learn and get smarter in future.

Coming this fall is a new Android Pie feature called Slices.

Android 9 Pie or Android P is Google's attempt to modernize its mobile operating system. You'll see a Google Search bar and your dock in the Overview as well.

But for most users, the most immediately obvious change will be the one that will also take the most getting used to: the new navigation.

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. With Digital Wellbeing, Google wants Android users to take better control of their screen time and will come with controls that will let you limit your screen time across applications and wind down at time. You'll need to install the Android SDK Platform Tools package on your computer, which interfaces with your device through ADB, a command line tool.
