Google reveals the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL

Google reveals the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL

It has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back, with a pixel density of 443ppi.

The Pixel Slate Keyboard was also announced and connects to the tablet. Not even Apple's new iPhone Xs and Xs Max can take quite as good still photos as last year's Pixel device.

The zoom is now aided by a Super Res Zoom feature, which uses computation photography from the world of astronomy and scientific imaging to provide sharper details when you're zooming.

It looks like Google was developing a Pixel Watch at the beginning of the year and was planning to release it at today's Made by Google event, but it has since stopped (or paused) development of the smartwatch. For selfies, a feature called Group Selfie provides 184% more room in the photo while shooting with the wide-angle camera.

Should you decide to go with a Pixel, you can pre-order the phone right now. And by the time you've finished watching all of these videos, who knows? It's hassle-free, you don't have to think about back-ups. When you point your camera at information you want to remember or don't feel like typing in - like a URL or QR code on a flyer or an email address on a business card - Google Lens suggests what to do next, like creating a new contact. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL also feature 2,915mAh and 3,430mAh batteries, respectively.

This is what everyone really wanted to see: Google's latest Pixel phones.

Google just took the wraps off a new Chromebook device at its hardware event today.

The Home Hub works like its siblings, providing the full Google Assistant voice experience, alongside music playback and smart home device control, while also introducing improved functionality and new features - thanks largely to that touchscreen.


In terms of the specs, the device is powered by Intel's 8th gen processors and you can get up to the Intel Core i7 chips (starts with Intel Celeron). These devices, he believes, are too heavy and have cumbersome hinges that hook onto removable keyboards, which makes them less attractive as a hand-held device when sitting on the couch.

And, importantly, you must select them yourself.

So, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are clearly simply refinements of what's come before.

This year, Google raised the price considerably for the Pixel 3. The new version Echo Show starts at $229, while the least expensive Facebook Portal sells for $199.

By changing the UI and encouraging users to treat it like a smart speaker, the Stand also solves a fundamental problem that other mat wireless chargers have-that you can't use the phone much while it's down on the table if you want it to charge. If you set an alarm, your screen will gently brighten over 15 minutes before your alarm goes off, mimicking the sunrise and helping you wake up naturally. The third in its line of high-end smartphones, the Google Pixel has previously impressed reviewers with its camera quality.

Liu pitches the Pixel Slate as having the "best of both worlds" when it comes to both mobile and desktop computing. Google says the front-facing speakers, combined with the lovely display, is supposed to provide the best entertainment experience, and so the company is giving away 3 months of free YouTube TV with the Pixel Slate.

Although rumours are now swirling about the Google Pixel Slate, nothing has been officially confirmed by the tech company.
