Google unveils new Pixel phones, smart home device

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

If you use the Pixel 3 as an alarm clock, it will adjust the screen color to match a sunrise, which Google says will make waking up more pleasant. We've listed pricing for each storage option below.

The new phones are expected to be very similar to the Pixel 2 in terms of look but will have a slightly new colour style. It had announced Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL on 4th October and were made available for pre-order in India on 26th October.

Google has designed two versions of its smartphone once again, with the exact same specs on the inside and the physical size being the only difference - the standard Pixel 3 has a 5.5-inch display while the Pixel 3 XL has a 6.3-inch display.

Google has also launched Pixel USB-C earphones, at its Made by Google event held in NY on October 9.

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. We can't say this will be the case for the regular Pixel 3, but the XL model will get dual front cameras, which is perhaps the reason behind the deep notch as well.

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL are touted to be one of the worst kept secrets of the smartphone industry, with new leaks and rumours surfacing almost every week for the last few months. The new Google Home Hub will come with a 7-inch screen with the speaker behind it, and it will compete directly with the newly launched Amazon Echo Show. The website confirmed that the 3 XL will come with two 8MP front cameras and one of the sensors will have a wide-angle lens.

In a way, the Pixel Stand helps turn Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL into a sort of smart display or hub powered by Google Assistant.

The smartphone runs on Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box and is built around an octa-core Snapdragon 845 chipset, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 128GB storage.

The Pixel Slate comes with Chrome OS and supports the Google Pixelbook Pen. That includes many that rely on free software and apps such as the free Android operating system, which powers most of the world's mobile devices, as well as Google's search engine, Google Maps and YouTube.

The Pixel Slate will be presented together with the Pixel 3 smartphones on the evening of October 9th.
