Even if Google must be making an effort in attempting to keep the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL a secret, the tech company isn't doing a remarkable job.

Shortly after taking photos of the Pixel 3 XL, the Lyft driver reportedly got ahold of the handset's owner and returned the device.

Finally, Android Pie. Google has already released Android Pie to the Pixel and Pixel 2 phones, and other phones either have it (Essential) or are close to with the partners from the Beta program including Nokia, Oppo, OnePlus, Xiaomi and Sony all working hard to release it to their phones. However, the report added some fresh details on the Pixel 3's possible availability in the United States. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will have a "WPC Charging Mode", which suggests that the device would have a glass back.

Puerto Rico's new death toll from Hurricane Maria is making the storm one of the deadliest hurricanes in United States history. On June 30 FEMA announced it would discontinue the program, prompting plaintiffs to sue the agency and ask for an injunction.

We've seen the Pixel 3 XL will have both black and white models, and it's expected we'll see black and white colour options on the Pixel 3 as well - but Google usually has something special up their sleeves in terms of colours.

Well, here's yet another report of a Pixel 3 XL in the wild-this time courtesy of an anonymous Lyft driver who sent Android Police photos of a pre-production unit he said was left in the back of his vehicle by some riders.

It was refreshing to see the regular Pixel 3 leak over the weekend, among all those Pixel 3 XL leaks. Fingerprint scanner on the matte part of the back, camera and flash on the shiny top. Dual front-facing cameras with an earpiece in-between, and a front-firing bottom speaker on the chin. The Express wrote on Sunday that the Pixel 3 and 3 XL are likely to sell at $649 and $749 respectively, which would make the two devices cheaper than their predecessors, assuming the rumors are accurate.
