Probably everything about the upcoming Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have been leaked in detail. We have seen real-life pictures, hands-on photos, contents of the retail box and more already, but what we are waiting for, is the official launch date from Google and of course pricing.

Google is rumored to launch the flagship smartphones next month on October 9, but there’s no official invite yet. Now it seems that Google is going through the final steps of launch as both Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones have stopped by the FCC.

The Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL have been spotted on FCC website. The two devices carry model numbers A4RG103A and A4RG103C. The ending A and C in codename is expected to follow the pattern introduced by the last year’s Pixel 2 (G011A) and Pixel 2 XL (G011C), reports 9to5Google. Many of the documents were filed in early July, while there are some dated back to late June as well.

Both devices have been submitted by Google on FCC, and not by LG or HTC like past years. This suggests that Google has designed the phones entirely in-house and these will be manufactured by Foxconn.

The FCC listing reveals that the new Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones will include support for all four major carriers in the U.S. These even include support for the “extended-range” LTE Band 71 used by T-Mobile.
