Google Launches Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL Smartphones, Connected Speaker With Screen

Read on for the key availability and pricing details.

The Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3XL go on sale in the USA starting October 19 and will be available in more markets on November 1. The Pixel 3 will be priced at $799 for the 64 GB model, and $899 for the 128 GB version. Come back to Google Photos later and search for the beach photos you took on your Pixel 3, and they'll pop right up.

We were able to go hands-on with the new 5.5-inch Android Pie phone, which comes in three colors, with names like clearly white, just black, and the pinkish 'not pink'. To this day the Google Pixel 2 camera still amazes us, and the Pixel 3 building off of that success gives us high hopes for our forthcoming camera tests. There is a SIM card tray slot, interestingly at the bottom of the device right next to the USB-C port.

Another Google executive sitting in on the same interview on Wednesday, Mr Martin Geh, added that the five Asian markets getting the Pixel 3 devices - Australia, India, Japan, Taiwan and Singapore - is a "good indication" of where the company will focus its efforts to expand its hardware presence.

Yankees and Red Sox Fans Get in Terrifying Bar Brawl
Luis Severino came into Monday night's American League Division Series game against the Red Sox wanting to pitch seven innings. Swinging 3-0 in a blowout is another behavior covered in baseball's unwritten rules, so Darling had an opinion about that.

Pixel phones should get wireless charging with a new Pixel Stand charger.

A couple of days back we saw Facebook launch its Portal and Portal+ smart speakers with screens and these majored on their AI camera people tracking ability and video calling capability however Google says it has deliberately chosen not to install a camera on the Home Hub "so you feel comfortable placing it in the private spaces of your home, like the bedroom". That supports the Qi standard, and delivers up to 10W of power.

The Google Assistant is also baked into Pixel 3 to help you find answers and control your phone and compatible smart home devices-all with a simple squeeze or just by using your voice. The screen is bright and sharp and is touch-sensitive, which enables the many contextual Google Assistant features available on Android Things.

The Google home Hub is available in four colours - Sand, Aqua, Charcoal, and Chalk - and is available for pre-order from the Google Store. There'll also be Google Hardware Store pop-ups in NY and Chicago, open from October 18 through to December 31, which will also offer the Home Hub when it's released. It comes to Australia, the USA and the United Kingdom on October 22.

Thomas Rhett's American Music Awards flashy suit contains hidden tribute
Cardi was nominated for eight awards tonight, tying her with Drake as the most-nominated artist. Swift opened the American Music Awards on Tuesday night which was unusually political.

From left - the Google HomeHub, Pixel Slate tablet and Pixel 3 phone. Like those, it features Google Assistant. Initially launched on the Pixel 3 phones, the feature will eventually be rolled out to other Pixel phones. Google is adding multi-room audio support, effectively bridging the gap between the Chromecast and the Chromecast Audio.

The product starts at $599 and will be available later this year.

Like the 3rd Gen Chromecast, this oddball accessory didn't even get a mention during the presentation. A feature called Top Shot uses AI to help you capture the ideal photo every time. Not at all. Does it leave Google's smart speaker looking incredibly cute? That could be Google being embarassed about all the leaks, but it could also be Google's way of hinting that there's something exciting coming tomorrow that we don't know about.
