Google unveils the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL

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

It's a given Google will make its new flagship phones official at an event on October 9.

Just like the previous generation, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL come with deep Google Assistant integration.

Google will be announcing its third-generation Pixel series smartphones tomorrow, i.e. 9th October, at a launch event in NY, along with a few other devices.

In the camera department, Google Pixel 3 XL comes with a 12-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, dual pixel phase detection, optical and electronic image stabilisation, and f/1.8 aperture.

The Pixel 3 starts at $799 while the Pixel 3 XL starts at $899.

The flagship Pixel 3 and larger Pixel 3XL are expected to feature major re-designs this year to rival Apple's new iPhone XS.

There's also Night Sight which uses machine learning to greatly improve the overall quality of low-light photos. At the time, we heard a Pixel 3 XL unit was selling for around $2,000 on the black market.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are now up for pre-order and will be released in Australia on November 1 in White, Black and a new colour called "Not Pink".

Oh no! Google kills its popular social network
Google says it will give users a 10-month period to transition out of Google +, slated for completion by the end of next August. That breach left the personal information of about 500,000 users exposed, and was caused by a bug on a People API on Google +.

Google also introduced a wireless charger for the phone called Pixel Stand, which is to sell for $79.

Google Pixel USB-C earphones come with an in-ear design for its earbuds, that come with adjustable loops.

In that, it's similar to Microsoft's Surface Pro 6, which launched last week.

After experimenting with mobile hardware via Nexus-series for years, Google took a big leap of faith in 2016 with Apple-esque Pixel series where it had greater control on both hardware and software - hence the branding "made by Google".

The Pixel Slate comes with Chrome OS and supports the Google Pixelbook Pen. A Google phone at its best will blow away the competition, it will be so better that other won't even be close. We also know that Pixel phones always get the latest Android updates as soon as their released, while phones from other vendors typically take months to be updated. No matter what, Google will likely make sure this product is available for anyone looking to put some shiny new tech under the Christmas tree.

Google said the screen can be used to view recipes hands-free and show music videos, as well as controlling the user's smart home appliances.

What are we going to see at Made by Google 2018? . When you activate the camera, the Pixel 3 will automatically record burst of frames before and after clicking on the shutter button.

Google's next voice-activated device could be a smart speaker with a screen. The Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL were launched alongside the Google Pixel Slate and the Google Home Hub. It does not feature a notch and its bezels are notably smaller than the Pixel 2 from a year ago. In terms of performance, the latest 10nm chipset on the Pixel 3 is certainly a greater improvement compared to the one that powers the last year's Pixel 2.
