  • Google's Third-Gen Chromecast Leaks Again In Updated Smart TV Kit

The Pixel 3 packaging was all legit, and both the device's feel and specs gave a clear impression that it wasn't a fake, not to mention lining up with all the recent leaks.

The Pixel 3, Google Home Hub, Pixel Slate, and a new Chromecast. There are some strong indicators Google will launch the eagerly awaited Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL smartphones.

If the pricing models for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are legitimate, it could suggest Google is planning to launch its new flagships at a significantly higher price than Apple's forthcoming iPhone XR smartphone.

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 Pixel 3 would be a 2,915mAh battery, while the Pixel 3 XL gets a 3,430mAh battery.

The Pixel 3 is expected to go from a traditional, squared-off 16:9 screen to a more modern 18:9 screen with thinner bezels and rounded corners. The base variant should come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

SpaceX Launch Seen in Local Skies
People as far away as Phoenix and Sacramento posted photos of the Falcon 9 rocket's launch and return on Sunday night. There have been 30 successful SpaceX booster landings in all, including the at-sea and on-land touchdowns in Florida.

Meanwhile, claimed Pixel 3 XL devices have been showcased with a radical redesign.

The two smartphones launching in this event will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with the latest Android operating system. Google could also announce a rumoured Pixel Mini phone and perhaps second generation Pixel Buds and a Pixel tablet as well.

Pixel 3 XL has been shown flaunting a new all-screen look with a notch and two front-facing cameras. The phones will also ship with Android 9 Pie.

We don't know about the price just yet but it's expected to be somewhere around, or likely upwards of AUD $1079. The tablet will also double up as a laptop with a keyboard accessory. The Pixel phones are also set to come with a wireless charging stand that props the phone up while it charges to make the screen visible, nearly like a docking station of old but wireless.

We saw the Pixel Slate and its keyboard cover leak over the weekend, but as usual Evan has found something new and interesting with the Slate mounted in the keyboard cover.
