(Pocket-lint) - Everyone is talking about the next iPhones, since Apple is expected to announce them in a couple weeks. But, shortly after that, Google will try to one-up Cupertino by announcing its own flagship updates, in the form of the much-rumoured Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

Thanks to Bloomberg, we've learned Google plans to unveil the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL on 9 October, with the event set to take place in New York. The date and location of this yet-to-be-confirmed event were briefly mentioned in a report about the next iPhones. But we already expected Google to announce them in October, considering the Pixel and Pixel 2 were announced in October in 2016 and 2017, respectively.

You can see our complete round-up of Pixel 3 leaks and rumours here. But, to summarise, they're thought to feature an OLED display with a notch, a wide-angle super selfie capability, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 likely, bundled USB-C earbuds (as the phones will have no headphone jack), a single camera system on the rear, entirely glass back, and an overall design that's not unlike the past two iterations.
