Google Pixel 3, 3 XL coming to India, but not everything else

Pixel 3 launch: Google to unveil iPhone challenger and smart home hub

"The Pixel 3 XL has a 6.5" screen, but a fraction of that is lost by the notch.

"For life on the go, we designed the world's best camera and put it in the world's most helpful phone", said Google's hardware chief Rick Osterloh. For example, you can have your Google Photos uploads automatically shown on the Hub like a fancy photo frame.

"Hi, the person you're calling is using a screening service from Google, and will get a copy of this conversation".

The Pixel line-up is known for its AI-enabled camera performance and Pixel 3 and 3 XL take it a bit further. It is also not clear whether Google will be rolling out Duplex to all Pixel phones.

Due to the size difference between the screens, it is only natural the Pixel 3 contains a smaller 2915mAh battery and the Pixel 3 XL features a larger 3430mAh battery.

Google started talking about Assistant on smart displays earlier this year, but it was not the first company to launch such a device.

The new model, available now, is $30 and £30 if bought separately.

Google Pixel Slate has been officially confirmed by the American tech company at its hardware event in New York City.

He insisted such a device will be the first "Chrome OS tablet".

From its magnetically attached keyboard to its stylus and, of course, its premium pricing, the Pixel Slate is a thinly veiled attack at Microsoft's Surface line, often hailed as the cream of the crop when it comes to productivity in a flexible form factor.

The tablet has been rumoured to come with an 8th-generation Intel Core i7 processor and up to 16GB of RAM. Both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have dual front-firing speakers and a second forward-facing camera for capturing group selfies.

"It also turns into a slim protective case when you're done with it", said Wuellner. It's still powered by a micro USB connection, so there is no Type-C just yet. The power button has a fingerprint scanner as well.

It's also HDR compatible - something that's becoming fairly common now in high-end devices - potentially offering better results when playing compatible HDR video, like some movies offered by Netflix.

The Google Home Hub is essentially a Google Home with a display.

Google knows a lot about you, including, apparently, how much you hate answering the phone.

What's most interesting perhaps is the absence of a camera.

Plus, it will respond to voice commands, just like the Google Home smart speaker.

Google says that the Pixel Stand is capable of fast wireless charging, though how fast that is in real life remains to be seen.

Plenty of details about the new smartphones have appeared online, although Google has sought to poke fun at the rumours. The Pixel Slate is priced at $599 and its stylus and keyboard will have to be purchased separately.

The Pixel Slate is built from the ground up to be a powerful and portable device.

The Hub includes six months of free YouTube Premium, and will be available October 22 for $149 United States dollars in the USA, U.K and Australia. It'll be available in Canada later this year.
