Google reveals Pixel 3, bigger Pixel 3 XL smartphone


Google's most hyped smartphones - Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL has already been thoroughly leaked in the past few of months. The latest Pixel models are also likely to come with a dual selfie camera setup.

In the weeks and months leading up to Google's big hardware event on Tuesday, there have seemingly been nonstop leaks about the upcoming products, especially Google's anticipated Pixel 3.

The Google Pixel 2 started at a price of around Rs 61,000 and the Pixel 3 is expected to be slightly higher than its predecessor.

The devices are available for pre-order right now through Google's online store, with orders set to arrive October 17.

Google Pixel 3 packs a 2915mAh battery while the Pixel 3 XL comes with a 3430mAh battery.

The Pixel 3 series will only have iterative upgrades over the previous generation. 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.

The camera of Pixel will be 12.2 MP dual Pixel single rear camera with autofocus with optical+electronic image stabilization.

Richard Lai, an Engadget editor, obtained the device from a Hong Kong retailer who is, apparently, selling Google Pixel 3 XL before its official release.

The Google Home Hub is poised to be the Google Home smart speaker with a face - a 7-inch screen, that is. In the performance department, the tablet comes powered by 8th-gen Amber Lake Intel processor, with configurations ranging from Celeron chipset going all the way up to Core i7 CPU. The Pixel 3 has a 2915mAh batter while the Pixel 3XL has a larger 3430mAH and of course they don't feature headphone jacks because that is for budget phones now. This new Slate tablet by Pixel will go head-on against the new Apple iPad Pro, and it might also possibly come with a fingerprint sensor.

As mentioned, Google is all set to uncover its latest Pixel smartphones on October 9.

We're not sure of the price or if it'll be like the Pixelbook in terms of its premium feel - or price, for that matter. Another device that has hit the shelves ahead of the formal launch is the third-generation Chromecast. Anything is possible from Google's wacky hardware labs.
