Google has just sent out invites to the press for a hardware event in New York City, and just as rumored it will take place on October 9. The invite came in with a delightfully designed (and very swiftly swoopy) animated gif that honestly doesn't give us any hints as to what we'll be seeing. But there's no reason why this wouldn't be the launch event for the Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL.
The only question is whether we see more than the two phones. Last time around, Google had a blockbuster event that was ostensibly for the Pixel 2 and 2 XL, but also included the launch of the Google Home Max, Google Home Mini, Pixel Buds and Pixelbook. If Google pulls out all the stops once again, we could be in for a huge hardware launch event.
Last year's event was in San Francisco (and on October 4), but it's hard to read too much into a venue switch to NYC — it's an easy place for press from all around the world to get to, and Google maintains a large presence in the city. Google will be streaming the event live, as well.
