Google unveils Pixel 3 and Pixel XL

The Pixel 3 and a larger Pixel 3 XL are due to be unveiled at an event in NY today, alongside a host of other hardware that will add to Google's smart home offering.

Google's new Pixel phones mirror the industry trend moving the devices toward lusher, bigger screens and add new twists on the camera for taking better selfies and other pictures. Additionally, the information also reveals that the Pixel 3 XL display has received the "Best Smartphone Display Award", pretty much like the Note9 and iPhone Xs Max before. Google Pixel 3 XL & Pixel 3 Officially Launched; Prices Starts From USD 799.

One key difference from last year's Pixel 2 is that the phones have glass backings and are enabled for wireless charging. The new Pixels will turn into a smart speaker and smart display powered by the Google Assistant, a photo frame and a control panel for your smart home when connected with the Pixel Stand.

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL Unveiled: Features and Specifications: Google took a huge leap in mobile world with the introduction of Pixel series. The devices offer the latest in terms of processor, making use of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 and pack 4GB RAM.

In addition to the headphones, the Pixel 3 XL will include two charging cables: USB-C to USB-A (for traditional chargers), as well as a USB-C-to-USB-C.

The 5.5-inch Pixel 3 is priced at S$1,249, and the Pixel 3 XL will cost you S$1,399. When you tap on the "Screen call" button, Google Assistant will alert the caller that you are "using a screening service from Google". The 128GB Pixel 3 XL, meanwhile, will sell for €1,059 ($1,215) in France. The company has also introduced YouTube TV with Pixel Slate as well as Pixelbook which includes sports and music books. The tablet has two speakers on the front side and two cameras of 8 MP on the front and back panels.

The iPhone also features Google's search engine, but Google may be paying Apple as much as $9 billion annually for that privilege, based on the estimates of Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall. Both devices can be connected to the Slate via Bluetooth. Its detachable keyboard will cost an additional $199, with a stylus sold separately for $99 Dollars. The device comes in four colors including white, dark gray, a light teal and a salmon-ish hue.
