Here’s all the new hardware Google announced today

Google Home Hub

Their appearance is not exactly as indicated by the myriad leaks and rumors surrounding the two phones.

What is surprising about the Pixel 3 XL is that it looks set to arrive with only a single, 12-megapixel camera at the rear. While the Pixel 3 XL has a larger 6.2-inch display with an obnoxiously large notch but also includes stereo front-facing speakers.

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. Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL Smartphones Launched with Starting Price of $799; Pre-orders, Features & Specifications. This may not sound like anything too special, but Google tries to compensate with software gimmickry. However, the latter feature won't launch until later this year. The current Chromecast hasn't been refreshed in three years, so the company has quietly added a new model to their store; however, nothing much has changed.

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. Has Google made the camera even better?

They will be sold in the US, Canada, and the UK. You don't have to worry about unlocking the phone to read these notifications.

The Pixel 3 sticks to 2160 x 1080 pixels - or Full HD+ - which at this size is actually perfectly adequate. Both are available first in English. In a simultaneous launch across Paris, London, Tokyo and Singapore, it showcased an upgraded Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL with revamped cameras, design, processor. This also includes talk about the Pixel 3's new camera technologies and Google Assistant improvements like call screening.

Called "call screen", the tool will answer incoming phone calls on your behalf and transcribe what the caller is saying on your device's screen. 100GB of data (now there'sa challenge), as many calls and texts as you like, and all for £45 per month. "You already have a screen", Ross says. You'll immediately see a transcript of the caller's responses so that you can then decide whether to pick up, respond by tapping a quick reply (e.g., "I'll call you back later"), or mark the call as spam and dismiss.

A new mode called Night Sight illuminates low-light shots nearly as if you'd used a flash, motion auto-focus delivers what looks like super-responsive object tracking.

Google LLC said Wednesday its Pixel 3 smartphone series with artificial intelligence-powered cameras will hit shelves in Japan in November, the first time the American tech giant has released its signature phones in the country. Trust us, when it comes to taking group selfies, whoever is holding the Pixel will be doing the honours, and we're expecting great things here.

Both handsets support fast charging (a claimed seven hours use from 15 minutes of charging). The Pixel Slate comes with a 3:2 aspect ratio and 293 ppi display. Honestly, that is the name and you shouldn't be surprised since the other two colors are Just Black and Clearly White.
