"Google is hosting its big "#MadeByGoogle" event today in NY. The Pixel 3 packaging was all legit, and both the device's feel and specs gave a clear impression that it wasn't a fake, not to mention lining up with all the recent leaks.
The iPhone also features Google's search engine, but Google may be paying Apple as much as $9 billion annually for that privilege, based on the estimates of Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall. The latest Pixel models are also likely to come with a dual selfie camera setup.
There have been few details about a new pair of Pixel Buds, Google's Bluetooth ear buds.
The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will undoubtedly be the stars of the show on Tuesday. According to reports, the new Pixel 3 phones will come with better features and design improvements compared to the current Google Pixel 2-series.
Stay tuned for the live updates. Anything is possible from Google's wacky hardware labs. Before its "Made by Google" phones, the company sold phones under Nexus-series.
Analysts are also expecting Google to add higher resolution and more cameras to the Pixel, whose first two generations attracted rave reviews for its high-quality pictures.
Leaked photos claim to show a smart display, called the 'Google Home Hub, ' which features a 7-inch display mounted on top of a speaker. Google Home Mini isn't due for a refresh, nor is Max.
The new Pixel phones are expected to follow the trend of expanding the phone screen almost to the edges of the device. They will pack the same flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, coupled with 4GB of RAM.
