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

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. With that being said, we don't expect any major change in final Google Pixel 3 version.

Google's October 9 event should reveal the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones, a Google Home Hub, and some kind of Chrome OS device.

Finally, Google will officially launch the device tomorrow and clear up all the rumors that have been building up. 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.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will share the same camera setup. It also compares the camera samples of the Pixel 3 XL and iPhone XS Max. Early prototypes leaked on the web showed the Pixel 3 XL having an all-glass body, with a look similar to its predecessor. On the inside, the phones will be identical in terms of hardware and performance. Under the hood, both the smartphones are likely to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 SoC clubbed with a 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal memory.

Pixel 3 XL will be slightly bigger than Pixel 3 with a resolution of 2960×1440 and comes in at 6.7-inches.

There have been few details about a new pair of Pixel Buds, Google's Bluetooth ear buds. A new wireless charging dock called the Pixel Stand will also be launched side by side the new phone line-up which will support the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Shocker. It has a simple design, blue color, single camera on its rear and another up front, fingerprint reader on top, dual front-facing speakers, USB-C port or two, and will work with a new blue Pixelbook Pen. Last year, the Pixel 2 came with a standard 16:9 display, whereas the Pixel 3 is expected to embrace the 18:9 aspect ratio. 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.

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. The device should run regular Android apps, and it may feature an ARM-based mobile processor or an ultra-low power CPU from Intel.

One of the highlights of the Google Pixel Slate is the detachable keyboard accessory which features circular keys and a touchpad. The rear also has a minimalistic Google logo, which has started to appear on its newer products.
