This autumn is shaping up to offer customers a great choice of top smartphones and Google wants to get in on the action.
And gadget fans have just been given their first idea of when to expect the new Google flagship.
It was posted on FameBit, Google's own YouTube influencer marketing platform, as an advert offering money to content creators in Canada who are willing to promote the new phone in return for cold, hard cash.
