Google Pixel 3 and 3XL launched, price begins at Rs. 71000

Google Home Hub

While we're talking screens, the Pixel 3 extends its OLED display to 5.5 inches with Full HD+ resolution (1080 x 2280 px) while the XL now measures in at 6.3 inches with a QHD+ resolution of 1440 x 2960.

And once you've already met the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones, make sure to check out the features that make these two handsets stand out.

The Pixel Slate is a strong first showing by Google, but it may need a little more than what it now has to offer in order to make any kind of dent in the Surface line's impressive hold of the 2-in-1 segment. This includes statistics and tools to create restrictions on each app, as well as a gesture called "Flip to Shh" which you can enable to silence your phone when placed face down.

Right off the bat, most of the hardware rumors are true. Whether or not you're a user of Google+, the fact that the company made a decision to withhold the information should give you pause, and force you to consider if you can depend on Google to notify you if or when even more serious data breaches occur.

With all of that being said, the new keyboard actually looks pretty slick. If accurate, that's when the Pixel 3 should be available in stores across the world. What's important is that the ppi - pixels per inch - remains high so that the display is capable of showing fine details.

It's also HDR compatible - something that's becoming fairly common now in high-end devices - potentially offering better results when playing compatible HDR video, like some movies offered by Netflix.

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.

In case you want to gift a device or want to pick up one for yourself, remember that pre-orders for both the smartphones begin from October 11, with sales starting from November 1. "I don't know why I would spend an extra $800 or more to upgrade from a Pixel 2 to a Pixel 3".

Google Pixel Slate release - Google could announce huge iPad rival TODAY
Verizon Wireless will remain the exclusive carrier for Google's new Pixels, which were unveiled at a media event in NY today. The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL are available for pre-order now from Verizon , Project Fi , and the Google Store unlocked.

The hardware is exactly what you'd expect. Now the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL are here to claim the title. "AI really changes things quite a bit".

Like a tablet, the Pixel Slate has front- and rear-facing cameras - both are 8MP, and offer Google's excellent photography software that's used in the Pixel phones. How does the notch look on a Pixel phone?

Live albums is a feature that automatically adds photos of people and pets to an album as you take them. Super Res Zoom takes many photos in slightly different ways to composite a better zoomed in photo.

Another addition is the ability to change the "aperture" in portrait shots. Oh, and there's a fingerprint scanner on the side in the power button that utilizes Google's new Titan security chip. There's the regular 8-megapixel selfie camera that's now joined by a second wide-angle front camera.

The front camera has been spruced up to cover a wider angle when making video calls. You can wirelessly connect the Pixel Slate to a Pixel Slate keyboard and use a Pixelbook Pen which has to be purchased separately.

Tuesday's announcements come a day after Google disclosed a flaw that could have exposed personal information of up to 500,000 users of its Plus social network.

There's a lot that smartphone buyers should be excited about when it comes to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, but Google is also bringing back the worst flaw for these sequels.

For those wanting a compact powerful device, the Pixel 3 certainly will be that.
