Google Unveils Pixel 3 Phones, Pixel Slate, and Home Hub

Google Unveils Pixel 3 Phones, Pixel Slate, and Home Hub

The event will kick off at 11:00AM ET, which corresponds to 8:30PM IST.

Unlike the comparison of Apples to Android we did for the Pixel 3 vs iPhone XS match-up, it's a little more straightforward comparing two Android flagships, and that makes this one a tight race.

The bezels are fairly thin (for a tablet anyway), but still big enough for dual front-facing speakers and for resting your thumbs.

Camera performance has been a focus of past Pixel phones, and that's the case again with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

As to how good the Hub is, we'd have to wait when there are actual units to review.

Pricing for the Pixel 3 phone starts at $799 and the Pixel 3 XL starts at $899, significantly cheaper than Apple's high-end iPhones, which start at $999 and $1,099 for the Xs and Xs Max, respectively.

One word comes to mind when I think of the Pixel's camera: Reliable.

Who is Brett Kavanaugh, US Supreme Court's new judge
On ABC's "This Week", Hirono was pressed on whether she might support potential future Democratic efforts to impeach Kavanaugh. Both parties contend that the new contours of the race will energise their supporters in the election's final stretch.

The rest of the Pixel Slate is rather featureless. No matter, we have all the official details and availability info now.

Google Pixel 3 features a matte finish on glass that the tech firm claims will allow for a better feel in the hand.

It has a 12.2-megapixel sensor. The expected updates for the Pixel smartphone line-up are expected to be announced in a short while, at the event in NY. Google says the Pixel Visual Core chipset that handles imaging is back but we are not sure if this is the same or an upgraded one. Google launched its line of high-end phones two years ago to better compete against Apple, Samsung and other device makers. However, from our initial time with the devices, it's clear that Google is really only just hitting its vision of melding of hardware and AI-driven software - something it set out to do back with the original Pixel in 2016.

Join FierceWireless this October 17-18 in Dallas as we cover 5G and its part in a much larger story about the next generation of wireless, through a mix of keynotes and fireside chats, breakout sessions and panels. When placed into the wireless charging stand, the Pixel's UI changes to become readable from a distance. To speak English to a German who then replies in German that's translated into English you will need: two Google Pixel 2 phones and two Google Pixel Buds headsets.

Expected today are the much leaked Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL. There are new Pixel phones, a smart display, and a new Chrome OS tablet. The Pixel 3 XL is supposed to sport a 6.3-inch QHD+ and a larger battery. When a call comes in, three buttons come up - answer, reject, or screen call.

Both also have 4GB of RAM and come in 64GB and 128GB storage options. It could be powered by Intel's Kaby Lake or Amber Lake processors, feature a 4K display 2400×1600 pixel resolution.

There's no camera on the front of the screen - so you can't use it to video chat. That's similar to Amazon's Echo Show and a new Facebook device called Portal. And we have already seen Sony, Lenovo and LG launching their devices based on Google's platform, and this time around, we may see first-party offering in the form of Google Home Hub.
