Here we'll outline everything you can expect to see at tonight's Google event, along with one thing we're on the fence about and another that's a definite no-show.
With the upgraded specs and added water-resistant capabilities, these were the most successful smartphones in 2017 on par with the Apple's iPhones and the camera along with Google's machine learning and AI capabilities is still believed to be the best camera on a smartphone till date.
The Google Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL will feature a dual 8MP front-facing camera. That was the impression I got after briefly using the Pixel 3 XL, hours after it was launched along with the Pixel 3 on Tuesday night. So it's high time for a successor, which will be introduced under the name "Google Pixel Slate" together with the Pixel 3 and 3 XL.
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. Incidentally, the Pixel 3 XL is already selling in Hong Kong at HK$15,880 (approximately Rs 1,50,100).
There has been a ton of Pixel 3 and 3 XL use in the wild.
Drew Brees sets all-time National Football League passing yards record, passing Peyton Manning
He had 250 yards and two touchdowns by halftime and finished 26 of 29 for 363 yards and three touchdowns. With the game well in hand after the two-minute warning, Payton subbed Brees out of the game.
Last week leaked images surfaced online showcasing a Google-branded tablet called the Pixel Slate. The new Pixel 3 display features HDR capabilities along with a screen-to-body ratio of 77.2%. Instead of Oreo, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL now run on more capable and a lot smarter Android Pie out-of-the-box.
It appears the reports of the death of tablets are greatly exaggerated, considering Google is about to unveil a seemingly strong competitor to this particular market.
One of the highlights of the Google Pixel Slate is the detachable keyboard accessory which features circular keys and a touchpad. The top part of the keyboard acts as a cover for the back of the Pixel Slate.
However while the Portal is designed primarily for making video calls over Facebook Messenger, Google's device does not feature a camera at all.
Google has so far only teased the device but a number of clues, rumours and leaks suggest Pixel 3 is going bezel-less this year.
The Pixel 2 used this function to bring up the Google Assistant easily. For instance, we don't know what's under the hood processor, storage or component-wise.
