At this point, there’s practically nothing that that we don’t already know about the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Google’s two upcoming smartphones have leaked countless times in the last few months. As the leaks continue to pour in, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have received certification in Taiwan, hinting that a launch is imminent.

The two smartphones were recently certified by the National Communications Commission (NCC), in a listing spotted by MySmartPrice. According to the listing, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have model identifiers G013A and G013C, respectively.

Although no date has been officially announced so far, a recent report claimed that Google will launch the new Pixel smartphones on October 9.

Watch: Google Pixel 2 XL First Look

Undoubtedly the worst-kept secret in smartphone history, the Pixel 3 XL has leaked in its full glory countless times over the past few months. Thanks to a bunch of hands-on photos, unboxing videos, and even reviews, we already know what the Pixel 3 XL will look like and have under-the-hood. A bevy of leaks has confirmed that the Pixel 3 XL will embrace the notch, having a disturbingly deep cut-out on the top edge of its display.

A fresh batch of real-life Google Pixel 3 photos also leaked online a few days back, confirming the soon-to-be-launched smartphone’s design. According to the images, shared by 9to5Google, the back of the Pixel 3 looks pretty much identical to the larger Pixel 3 XL, complete with a matte-finish rear panel and a much-smaller glass inset up top. The right side of the smartphone features the volume rocker and the power button.
