  • Google Pixel 3 XL leaks with a new retail packing, to be unveiled on October 9th

The new Pixel-branded phones will anchor a product event Tuesday in NY.

According to the images leaked to the network until today, Chrome OS should receive a new user interface, with a central dock and a "Back" button. The event will kick off at 11:00AM ET, which corresponds to 8:30PM IST.

The event will also be streamed live on Twitter. Early prototypes leaked on the web showed the Pixel 3 XL having an all-glass body, with a look similar to its predecessor. We have seen both the smartphones in leaked renders and we have also come across their specifications.

Going from a small experiment to a polished product backed by large sales, support and technical teams has been part of Google's challenge. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones are scheduled to be unveiled on 9th of October and both the handsets will also go for pre-orders on the same day. And yes, the Pixel 3 XL display will come with a notch on top, and that too a deep one, while other manufacturers are experimenting different types. Out of the two front cameras, one has the standard lens and the second has a wide angle lens for taking group selfies. The review reveals nearly everything about the two Pixel phones.

The logo of Google is pictured during the Viva Tech start-up and technology summit in Paris, France, May 25, 2018. It will open the Google Assistant on squeezing the edge of the phone. Even the HDR+ feature helps photos to have a good dynamic range, and some of the credits can be given to the dedicated Pixel Visual Core.

The actual specifications, possible variant details and prices for the Slate could be announced at the Made by Google event, which takes place on October 9 at Spring Studios in New York City. Are any of you looking forward to the next batch of Google Pixel devices?

Tua Tagovailoa throws four touchdowns in first half
Arkansas: The Razorbacks might be able to win an SEC game this season, but it was never going to happen against Alabama. He is now 76-of-102 for 1,495 yards and has no interceptions on the year, and he has yet to play in a fourth quarter.

Additional leaked screenshots show that the phone will have a 2,915mAh battery, which is a noteworthy jump in capacity from the Pixel 2.

Instead of a metallic keyboard, this year there will be a keyboard cover like the one for the iPads.

Finally there's rumours around something called the Google Hub. That sparked rumours about wireless charging being implemented.

It's noted that on the inside is a Snapdragon 845 processor, but other than the 2,960 x 1,440 resolution, the exact details on the OLED are still unclear. The device should run regular Android apps, and it may feature an ARM-based mobile processor or an ultra-low power CPU from Intel.

Talking about Pixelbook 2, the Chrome OS notebook is expected to retain the same form factor and ports as the first model.
