Google's Pixel 3 event in 6 minutes

Google's Pixel 3 event in 6 minutes

Google tends to highlight that its phones aren't only about hardware. The Pixel 3 XL has a notch at the top of the 6.3-inch display.

There have been so many leaks of Google's hardware over the last month or so that we know most of what's coming.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL start at $799 and $899, respectively. Still, I have little doubt that come Tuesday, the new Black and Blue version will be available and should work on any of the Pixelbook or Pixel Slate devices. Google typically gets better results from its single 12Mp camera sensor than rivals get from two or three in their smartphone cameras, and that hasn't changed this time around. So with Google planning to announce the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL tomorrow in NYC, the ... Both Pixels run Google's Android 9.0 OS and offer dual front-facing cameras and wireless charging for the first time.

Beyond the tablet experience, the Pixel Slate can be paired with the Pixel Slate Keyboard, which is a folio-style keyboard cover.

The Pixel tablet will feature a touchpad, round keys, a front-facing camera and a camera on the rear, as well as a built-in fingerprint sensor.

Ignore even more phone calls with Google's 'call screen' feature
Google says the Pixel Visual Core chipset that handles imaging is back but we are not sure if this is the same or an upgraded one. The new large-sized displays and other features of the smartphones are definitely the aspects that will draw maximum attention.

Paul Pogba: I don't deserve to win the Ballon d'Or
Liverpool's Brazilian forward Roberto Firmino and Uruguay's rugged defender Diego Godin of Atletico Madrid also got the nod. The 25-year-old was part of France's World Cup winning team, scoring a goal in the final against Croatia.

One leak suggests a speedy Core i7 processor with 16GB of RAM.

What are your thoughts regarding the Pixel Slate? The notch is actually extremely thick and it is actually double the width of the notch that you'd find in other Android devices. When the device is docked a new user interface will appear with quick actions for playing music, making phone calls, and using the Google Assistant.

The Hub automatically shows images from your Google Photos library or that have been shared with you, and can also bring up photos you request with your voice.

This is going to be another smart speaker from Google which is set to launch in the upcoming event. The Hub now recognizes who is speaking, and has a sleep mode where it won't interact with anyone, according to Google, which is clearly conscious of family safety issues, but not so conscious to build in decent parental controls. Also, the same live stream will be available on Twitter. But the company did reveal an interesting detail about the Pixel 3 phones that wasn't captured in the extensive leaks we saw this summer: The Titan M. Since the displays are pushed further to the bezels and will have taller aspect ratios, the dimensions of the phones are expected to remain almost the same.

Google showed off one especially impressive feature that its Assistant app can perform: Call screening, which can screen a phone call for you if you don't recognize a number. But in the case of the Pixel 3 XL it may not be enough because the world, and particularly Apple which is doing some magic in the phones like the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max, is not standing still.
