Google announces Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL

To help bridge that gap between tablet and desktop, Google has also announced a partnering accessory, the Pixel Slate Keyboard. It is priced at a pretty reasonable $149. It comes in three colors-Chalk, Charcoal, Aqua, and Sand. But now Google has taken the wraps off of everything, and we're getting a good look at the Chrome OS powered tablet that wants to be your mainstay computer. That means you can, without voice commands, swipe and tap at it to control your home's smart devices, check the weather, and see your commute.

The Google Pixel Slate uses a brand new 12.3in "Molecular Display" display with 3000 x 2000 resolution and 400 nits of brightness. Likewise, Amazon just can't stop itself from trying to use its foothold in your home to get you to buy more things from its online store. And since it's a tablet, Chrome OS has been optimized for touch. This feature will initially be available later this year in New York, Atlanta, Phoenix and the San Francisco Bay Area to help people book restaurant reservations and will roll out to other USA cities in the future.

From its magnetically attached keyboard to its stylus and, of course, its premium pricing, the Pixel Slate is a thinly veiled attack at Microsoft's Surface line, often hailed as the cream of the crop when it comes to productivity in a flexible form factor. The keyboard is backlit with rounded keys and connects to the Pixel Slate via a smart connector at the bottom of the device. If you feel the need to jot something down, the Pixel Slate also works with the Chromebook Pen ($99). The $599 iteration of the Pixel Slate will have an Intel Celeron processor with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. An 8th Gen Core m3 and 8/64 GB is $799, a Core i5 and 8/128 GB is $999, and a Core i7 and 16/256 GB is a whopping $1,599.

If there is a smartphone that generates the maximum buzz about its cameras then it's Google Pixel.

Although Google did not make any announcements about it on-stage, there's a new Chromecast. It's still a $35 dongle.

Other rumours have suggested that the device will have stronger Wi-Fi support and Bluetooth, though none of those things have been mentioned by Google. Samsung also pushes Android forward and has many features found on future versions of Android.

It packs a bunch of cool new features, FDA-approved ECG included, and has a powerful new S4 processor, which is more than welcome. The Nike+ watches are great for athletes as they give you heartbeat ratings so you can know how many calories you have burnt.

Google said it would augment distribution by opening two temporary stores in popular neighborhoods of Chicago and NY on October 18 and putting up displays at US tech retailer B8ta and Goop. With 3430mAh and 2915mAh batteries on the Google Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 respectively, the talk-time and standby hours are definitely more. Otherwise the two devices are very similar.

On the rear, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is covered entirely in glass.

Google knows a lot about you, including, apparently, how much you hate answering the phone. The phones also come with new USB-C earbuds that can access Google Assistant and read your notifications aloud, and support wireless charging via a sold-separatley dock called Pixel Stand.

Google says the Pixel Slate will be available "later this year" for $US599; the Pixel Slate Keyboard will cost $US199, while the new stylus is $US99.

Like the new iPhone XS and XS Max, the new Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL allow you to adjust the blurriness of the background after shooting Portrait Mode photos.
