  • Google Pixel 3 XL Is Already Selling In Hong Kong Before Launch

The devices are exactly the same as all the numerous leaks since the month or two have pointed out. On the inside, the phones will be identical in terms of hardware and performance. In 2016, Google debuted the Pixel and Pixel XL after relentless leaks and rumors. The lower part of the glass had a matte finish. The cheaper Google Home will retain what we have loved about the current Home device, but it will feature much-improved speakers for better audio quality.

Google recently confirmed that the company is holding an event on October 9 where it will announce the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Both displays should be AMOLED, but only the XL model will have the notch (nice big by the way, also because it houses two frontal cameras of which one wide-angle). While the Pixel 3 XL is so far rumoured to come with a display notch, the Pixel 3 could come with a traditional design that won't include a notch. The Pixel 2 featured the last-gen Snapdragon 835 SoC paired with Adreno 540 GPU. As for recording videoss, the rear camera can record 4K videos at 30FPS and the front camera can only record video upto 1080p.

Internally again, both devices are the same.

"They come at the intersection of AI, software and hardware working together". They also feature wireless charging finally for the Pixel line thanks to the all glass back. "For life at work and play, we are bringing the power and productivity of a desktop to a gorgeous tablet called Pixel Slate".

The new mobile devices all feature a security system called Titan, which Google said secures the lock screen and strengthens disk encryption. It features a keyboard with circular keys, Google Assistant button, and pins that will allow the Slate to dock.

The two devices are super expected, but in reality, nearly everything is already known about them since even the XL model is already on sale in China (even if it costs nearly 2000 euros).

There have been few details about a new pair of Pixel Buds, Google's Bluetooth ear buds.

It would have sent the Timberwolves' disgruntled star to Miami as part of a trade package, according to Woj. Butler remains away from the team officially as he rehabilitates his surgically-repaired right hand.

At the front, there are dual 8MP shooters.

The firm released the first pair of Pixel Buds to go along with the Pixel 2 past year, and now it's widely believed that it will release a refreshed pair to go with the new lineup of Pixel phones. All four devices has been leaked in the recent past, however, we can't be sure that all will be launched at tonight's event. So, if you take a group photo and someone closes their eye, you can actually use Top Shot to select a photo when their eyes were not closed. This mode uses the new Google's machine learning capabilities to recommend the best moment after capturing the photo.

The Pixel 3 measures in at 5.7 x 2.7 x 0.3 inches and weighs 5.2 ounces.

If you are one of those who want to follow Google's live broadcast tomorrow, I'm happy to let you know that the presentation can be followed in live streaming on YouTube by going to the official Google channel, where you will already find the live " Made by Google 2018 "scheduled for tomorrow at 4.40 pm.

On the software front, the new Pixels are running on Android 9.0 Pie. Among it was the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

What are your thoughts regarding the Pixel Slate? But it is also an expensive phone - the price starts at Rs 71,000 for the Pixel 3 and Rs 83,000 for the Pixel 3 XL - and there are areas where it may not match the iPhone XS or the iPhone XS Max even though there will be areas - cameras for example - where it is well ahead of the competition. However, Google is expanding its OS to mid-range smart devices.
