Google brings camera twists, bigger screens to Pixel phones

TODO alt text

More importantly, you may want to know what hardware products will be unveiled.

Google's Pixel 3 event begins at 11:00 AM ET on October 9th, so we'll soon see if they have any announcements left to surprise us. Obviously, the stars of the show were the flagships - the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, successor to the last year's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL (review). It is called a complete Handset Retail Box in my way.

Previous leaks have revealed that the Pixel 3 will have a 5.5-inch FHD+ display while the Pixel 3 XL will come with a 6.2-inch QHD+ display.

The leaked photo showed the charging stand is primarily made up of one circular puck for the base, oval shape for the back of the stand.




The biggest draw was the new smartphones, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, which start at $799 and $899 respectively. Google offers this phone with the radical colour naming scheme they have with this line of phones: Just Black, Clearly White and Not Pink.

The company not only revealed a third edition of its Pixel smartphone, but also a tablet device and a Google Home Hub created to bring together elements of the smart home. On the front, both phones will feature two 8-megapixel sensors. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will support wireless charging for the first time. Shocker. It has a simple design, blue color, single camera on its rear and another up front, fingerprint reader on top, dual front-facing speakers, USB-C port or two, and will work with a new blue Pixelbook Pen.

Finally, Google will officially launch the device tomorrow and clear up all the rumors that have been building up.

A year after Apple popularized the notch with the iPhone X, and after many other Android phones put it on their screen, Google follows suit and revives the conversation - unfortunately with a take that's not getting the most approval at the moment. Plus, the Pixel 3 family is expected to have an Active Edge feature that was sported on the Pixel 2 models a year ago. There is no information on the exact size of the screen and resolution of the Pixel Slate. Google Home Hub acts as smart hub for all connected devices like thermostat and smart bulbs in the house.
