The device, priced at $149, won't be a video-chatting hub like Amazon's product and Facebook's new Portal speaker, unveiled Monday.
For fans of the smaller Pixel 3, It's important to note that all of these great improvements are applicable to both displays. Yet, from the leaked renders that we have come across, we are unlikely to see thin bezels along the top and bottom. Indeed, the Pixel 3 XL's screen is very pleasant indeed, with rich colors and a warmth its predecessor struggled to deliver, even after Google's software tweaks. The Pixel 3 will not sport a notch, unlike its Pixel 3 XL sibling. The notch will house dual cameras, one of which is expected to come with a wide-angle lens, the earpiece and sensors. The Pixel 3 64GB variant was listed at CAD 999 (roughly Rs. 56,900) and CAD 1,129 (roughly Rs. 64,300) for the 128GB model. Google, it seems, is confident it can do the kind of depth of field trickery seen on rivals without the aid of a second camera.
In terms of the processor, each phone sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and 4GB of RAM.
With its new Pixel Slate tablet, Google wants to win the shrinking tablet market in a battlefield it will have to share with competitors like Apple's iPad and Microsoft's Surface devices.
Liu pitches the Pixel Slate as having the "best of both worlds" when it comes to both mobile and desktop computing.
If you'd been following any of the Pixel 3 leaks and rumors over the past few months, you likely knew a lot, if not all, about the Pixel 3's hardware. As per Apple and others, Google prefers wallpapers and UI elements that emphasize darker colors near the top of the screen, to help mask just how much is cut out.
Finally, we are here: tomorrow, Tuesday 9 October, the new top-of-the-line Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL smartphones will be presented.
With privacy in mind, Google decided not to put a camera on the device.
Some have suggested it could release wireless Pixelbuds this time around. Wireless charging support could also mean Google would announce its own wireless charging stand, or the "Pixel stand".
From left - the Google HomeHub, Pixel Slate tablet and Pixel 3 phone. The Pixel Slate will also have a detachable keyboard accessory, transforming the tablet into a capable work machine.
Google's phones are certainly a great choice if you love taking pictures and prefer the feel of the Android operating system.
Google should also present the Google Home Hub, a 7-inch smart display that integrates with Google Assistant.
The Pixel 3 users can also store unlimited original resolution photos and videos in the cloud through Google Photos App. They are introducing a new feature called Live Albums that refreshes albums often, to keep them showing new photos all of the time. They weren't too bright or blown out at all.
