Google reveals Pixel 3, bigger Pixel 3 XL smartphone

The Pixel Slate will use Google's Chrome OS

The tech giant recently sent out invitations for an event to be held on October 9.

Google is set to unveil its third generation smartphone, bringing out two versions of its Pixel 3 device.

The squeeze feature from the Pixel 2 is making a return here as well which will allow one to quickly access Google Assistant.

Google's follow-up to last year's Pixelbook Chromebook is rumoured to be a Chrome OS tablet. Google Pixel phones typically haven't featured MicroSD card support and this is still the case. 64 GB and 128 GB are available for storage through Google opted out for the expandable storage option.

The latest Pixel phones are likely to attract the most attention, even though the first two generations have so far barely made a dent in the market. The Pixel 3 XL price is £869 and £969 with 64GB and 128GB of storage, respectively. Both are expected to run Android 9.0 Pie and have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, coupled with 4GB RAM. It comes with the IP68 dust as well as water resistance. It still features the same metal chassis design with a single primary camera at the back but now, the front now features the infamous notch on the XL model which is now in line with the 2018 aesthetic. The Pixel 3 XL is expected to come with a 6.7-inch display, an increase of 0.7-inches, while the smaller Pixel 3 will come with a 5.5-inch display, a difference of 0.5-inches.

Google today unveiled the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

Reportedly codenamed "Nocturne", the Google Pixel Slate will rival Microsoft's Surface Pro lineup of convertible laptops. The selfie camera is where the both Pixel devices differ the most. Google says it captures 184 per cent more of a scene than the front cameras on Apple's latest phones. The Pixel Slate will also have a detachable keyboard accessory, transforming the tablet into a capable work machine.

In May Google said 500 million Assistant-powered devices have shipped around the world, including speakers, phones and televisions. More than likely, these two parts will be able to come apart completely and still maintain an operating connection while separated if the Google Pixel Slate is really a spiritual successor to the Pixel C. Moreover, it can easily fold, which transforms the tablet into a laptop. Google's custom Pixel Visual Core is doing all the heavy lifting here which makes all the HDR+ processing notably faster. Icons visible on the screen include a back button and a centralized icon dock at the bottom. The new Pixel 3 display features HDR capabilities along with a screen-to-body ratio of 77.2%. We were provided no information as to whether the software running on the unit was finalized.
