Google is set to unveil its third generation smartphone, bringing out two versions of its Pixel 3 device. Early prototypes leaked on the web showed the Pixel 3 XL having an all-glass body, with a look similar to its predecessor.
Three years ago, Google launched the Pixel C, its own Android tablet. I've never wanted an iPad or a Windows tablet, and I've always preferred the purity and first-in-line-for-operating-system-upgrades you get with a Google branded product. Business Insider will be there covering the event live, but you can also watch a live-stream on Twitter. These two new smartphones are said to be successors to the old Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 Xl smartphones. It appears that Google hasn't yet mastered the art of a small notch since the one on the Pixel 3 XL is fairly big. Besides, the Pixel 3 will measure 145.6x68.2x7.9mm and weighs 148 grams, whereas the Pixel 3 XL will measure 157.9x76.7x7.9mm and weight 184 grams. On the front part is present the LCD by 7 inches, while on the basis are integrated speaker and microphones.
The big questions is whether it will have a built in webcam to supports video calls. Both smartphones are likely to have 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/ A-GPS, and USB Type-C.
We don't know about the price just yet but it's expected to be somewhere around, or likely upwards of AUD $1079. There is no information available on whether it will be available in other color variants.
The selling price in the United States should be around $ 149, but for now, there is no confirmation on this point.
The Google Pixel 3 is promising to give you the best smartphone camera in 2018
On the software front, the new Pixels are running on Android 9.0 Pie.
Google's follow-up to last year's Pixelbook Chromebook is rumoured to be a Chrome OS tablet. 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 Google Pixel Slate is rumored to arrive as laptop-tablet hybrid which means it will be equipped with a detachable keyboard. It is not clear if it will be provided with cellular connectivity. Google could stuff in a 3732mAh battery under the hood.
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.
That is all for the moment. Mashable's Raymond Wong and Pete Pachal will be on site for the news, but it's pretty safe to say we know what's coming.
According to Android Central, preorders on the Pixel 3 will be made available immediately after today's event, so you better be quick.
