Google is reportedly working on a new Pixel 3 and this guide will take you through some reasons why you should, and shouldn’t, wait for the company’s new flagship to arrive.

If you’re hunting for your next smartphone Google’s Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL should be near the top of your list. The company’s flagships are two of the best phones on the market and they’re worth a look if you’re thinking about going with an Android phone over Apple’s iPhone.

You’ll also want to dig into other alternatives like the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, OnePlus 6, Huawei’s P20, the Samsung Galaxy S9, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and LG’s G7 before you commit to your next phone.

Pixel 3 Rumors

The Pixel 3 rumor mill started churning at the end of last year thanks to a report from Droid-Life that outed potential codenames for the upcoming devices.

According to the report, one of the rumored Pixel 3 models is codenamed “crosshatch” while the others are potentially codenamed “albacore” and “blueline.”

More recently, an employee working on the Android Open Source Project referenced the name “Pixel 3.” The reference was spotted by XDA-Developers and it hints at improved networking.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL continue to popup in AOSP as we push deeper into the year. We’ve also seen the devices leak in detail well ahead of Google’s announcements all of which are expected to take place at an event in early October.

According to a report from Bloomberg, Google’s Pixel 3 will be a lot like the Pixel 2, but will include an updated rear camera. The Pixel 3 XL will reportedly feature dual front-facing cameras. Both devices will evidently be exclusive to Verizon in the United States.

With Pixel 3 rumors picking up speed, those of you in the market for a new phone have a decision to make: Wait for the Pixel 3 or go with another device.

If you find yourself struggling with this decision, allow us to walk you through some reasons to, and not to, wait for Google’s rumored Pixel 3.

Wait Because the Pixel 3 Launch is Close

Wait Because the Pixel 3 Launch is Close

The Pixel 3 won't arrive in September. That said, we're only a few weeks away from launch. 

Google typically announces new hardware in the fall after the hype from Apple's yearly iPhone launch has died down and that's exactly what Google's got planned for 2018. 

The company will likely announce the new Pixel devices at a launch event in New York City on October 9th. This date is confirmed and it lines up with previous Pixel launches. 

The actual release date might land on October 9th. There's also a chance it comes a few weeks after the devices make their debut. 

With only a few weeks to go, those of you in the hunt for a new Android device will likely want to hit pause on a purchase and wait for the Pixel 3 to arrive.
