Liveblog: Google’s Pixel 3 launch event at 11am ET Tuesday, October 9

10 October 2018

As was the case with the previous two generations of Pixel phones, Google took it upon themselves to make the camera one of the most important and advanced features of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. To cap it all, the order page was leaked in the United States by a buggy Verizon webpage.

The selling price in the United States should be around $ 149, but for now, there is no confirmation on this point. And that was announced as $799 for the 64GB SIM-free model. It will be available in India from November 12.

As usual, we are expecting around five or so Google products at this event.

The Titan M is a security chip built for the Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, and Pixel Slate. It does not feature a notch and its bezels are notably smaller than the Pixel 2 from past year. To keep things ticking, there is a 3,720mAh battery with support for fast charging. As for the smaller Pixel, it features a 5.45-inch 18:9 FHD+ OLED display. The pressure-sensitive edges, always-on display, double tap to wake, are also there.

Night Sight allows users to take photos on the Pixel 3 in a low-light environment without a flash.

The biggest change under the hood would be in the charging department, as the new Pixels are expected to be Google's first devices to offer wireless charging solutions. As a telemarketer talks to the phone, a live transcript pops up that you can follow along and answer if you want to.

What are your thoughts regarding the Pixel Slate? A Google phone at its best will blow away the competition, it will be so better that other won't even be close. Google has claimed that Pixel USB-C earphones work best with the Pixel series, over which these earphones provide 24-bit digital audio. They feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset running at 2.8GHz, 4GB RAM, and 64/128GB of storage space. These two new smartphones are said to be successors to the old Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 Xl smartphones. As for software, the devices will ship with the latest Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box.

The back of the Pixel 3 phones are expected to be entirely glass, with the bottom half once again coated in a matte paint to give it that two-tone look.

To compete with the like of Amazon Echo Show and facebook's Portal, Google has rolled out its Home Hub from its armory.

Google Home Hub can display YouTube videos and step-by-step recipes. "I can even watch a video to figure out how to poach an egg". May be the way metal and the glass frame meets in this phone could have been better.

The round keys also match the icons on the Slate's screen, with Android apps alongside Chrome OS software. The Pixel Chromebook was a $1,000 dud. Now, you can add Google to the list.

The Google Pixel Slate is rumored to arrive as laptop-tablet hybrid which means it will be equipped with a detachable keyboard. And there are far fewer unique features, too.
