Google is holding a mega-event today in NY today. According to what appears to be leaked listing from United Kingdom mobile firm EE, shared on Twitter by Jon Prosser, the Google Home Hub will be available from October 22. These images of the device were leaked on Facebook giving us the first look of the retail box which has not leaked till date. So, in total Google is expected to break the tradition and launch three Pixel phones this year. Majority of these leaks came from a Russian guy who allegedly sold a bunch unreleased version of the device.
Like the Pixelbook from a year ago, the Pixel Slate seems to be equipped with 3:2 aspect ratio display. Visually, the Pixel 3 XL device will be slightly bigger than the Pixel 3, however, the two devices will be same in terms of functionality and specifications. The notch will house dual cameras, one of which is expected to come with a wide-angle lens, the earpiece and sensors. The review reveals nearly everything about the two Pixel phones. Take a look below to know more about the about the products which Google will be launching tomorrow. Google will definitely throw in some new camera features made possible by software as well. You can also check back here Tuesday afternoon for a recap of the most important announcements of the day.
Google has always focused on the cameras and the Pixel 3 line up will be no different. Sadly, while the peers are going for dual and triple cameras, Google is sticking to its single camera setup, possibly a 12.2-megapixel unit. This activates the Google Assistant by squeezing the sides of the smartphone. Even the HDR+ feature helps photos to have a good dynamic range, and some of the credits can be given to the dedicated Pixel Visual Core.
Last year's Pixel 2 arrived with bugs that prompted user complaints about unwanted noises during calls, a crashing camera app and an unexpected screen tint. The screen should have a 3: 2 form factor and the stylus should be very similar to the one presented past year along with Pixelbook. The following image lists all the Pixel 3 features compared to the Pixel 2 and original Pixel.
Over the weekend, because Google is really bad at keeping anything a secret, the Pixel Slate was fully revealed.
Talking about Pixelbook 2, the Chrome OS notebook is expected to retain the same form factor and ports as the first model.
We don't have confirms specifications at this time but according to Android Police, we could be looking at a 2400×1600 resolution display and an Intel Kaby Lake processor under the hood.
