Google today held its annual fall hardware event announcing its next generation of premium smartphone, the Pixel 3 and other hardware devices. The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be available for pre-order from October 11 and you can preorder them from online portals like Flipkart and Airtel's online store or from offline stores like Reliance Digital and Chroma. The Pixel 3 phone has a 5.5-inch display and the Pixel 3 XL has a display size of 6.3 inches. It's been two years since Google Home launched, and now that the company's smart speaker line-up is four products strong, Google says its working to create not only a more connected home but a more "thoughtful" one. The Home Hub is basically a Google Home speaker with a display in the front.
The new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will go head-to-head with Apple's iPhone Xs as an Android alternative and boast improved camera specs as the headline feature. Both the devices come with the same spec sheet which includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB storage. The Pixel 3 XL starts at ₹ 83,000 for the 64GB variant while the 128GB model is priced at ₹ 92,000.
"With Pixel 3, we've built the first phone that can answer the phone". When your phone rings, you'll be able to summon Google Assistant with the tap of a button and have Duplex ask callers their name and goal.
Kavanaugh asks questions in first day on bench
In his speech at the ceremony, Kavanaugh said the emotional Senate confirmation process "tested" him, "but it did not change me". But critics said Kavanaugh's demeanor raised questions about his temperament and potential political bias in deciding cases.
Although Google did not make any announcements about it on-stage, there's a new Chromecast. The company has also introduced YouTube TV with Pixel Slate as well as Pixelbook which includes sports and music books. However, it's not clear if it'll be limited to Pixel 3 or pushed to all Pixel phones. Meanwhile, Samsung and LG remain among the few phonemakers that still offer a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack in their phones, obviating the need for such dongles.
The Pixel Slate tablet has a 6-million pixel display and was described as "a flawless device for play and work", by Trond Wuellner, Google's director of product management. The Pixel 3 has the advantage on paper, but the Galaxy S9 camera is not a pushover.
