Pixel 3 launch: Google to unveil iPhone challenger and smart home hub

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL REVEALED: UK release, price and specs detailed

Leave it to Google to zig when we expect it to zag.

The Pixel Slate leaked right before the official Google hardware event today, managing to fly mostly under the radar while the Pixel 3 leaked left and right.

The Pixel Slate is one handsome tablet. The rear panel and sides are swathed in a lovely midnight-blue aluminum. If you were hoping to check out weather forecasts, headlines, and more from across the room, though, you may be disappointed.

That's a lot of pixels!

The device features a gorgeous 12.3-inch display with a resolution of 3000×2000 pixels - producing up to 6 million pixels, Type-C ports, and no headphone jack. In person, the panel looked sharp and vibrant. On the inside, Google's device is powered by a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with Adreno 640 graphics, a Pixel Visual Core image processing chip and Google's Titan M security module.

Trump Administration Examines Path to Waive Iranian Oil Sanctions
Of the 220.4 million metric tonnes (million MT) of crude oil imported by India in 2017-18, about 9.4% was from Iran. Persistent internal issues within major oil exporting countries could keep prices high in the coming weeks.

The YouTube experience has been optimised on Home Hub, and it will also come with six months of free YouTube Premium.

Limited adoption has reflected Google's hesitancy to go as wide and big in distributing and marketing the Pixel as Apple, which launched its last two iPhone line-ups in about 50 countries.

Both also have 4GB of RAM and come in 64GB and 128GB storage options. The front-facing shooter has a wide-angle lens that's ideal for large group shots.

A rounded fingerprint sensor and a single camera sensor also sit on the back of both devices. But think of it this way, its as fast as the wired charger of the Pixel 2 generation (which was capped at 10.5W). But Google seems ready to put its money where its mouth is. Google claims that you'll have the ability to run developer tools and even Linux.

But the biggest thing that's going to catch your eye will be the reimagined Chrome OS interface that's actually built for a tablet form factor, not a laptop. Google said it was rolling this feature out on a city-by-city basis, but for those who want to use Duplex right away, it's now capable of screening calls for you and dictating them to your phone screen so you don't have to pick up if you don't want to.

Nikki Haley Resigns as US Ambassador to United Nations

That means that your most used apps will be a tap away. The company on Tuesday introduced the Google Home Hub, a smart speaker with a display. That gives you bright, evenly toned shots that better capture that evening mood.

The Pixel Slate will be available in four configurations, starting at the price of $599. The keyboard also has a full-size trackpad that offers traditional functionality. (The iPad Pro doesn't even have a touchpad.) Pinch-zoom and two-finger scrolling were quick and responsive.

Both Pixel 3s boast multiple improvements to the camera software, including Top Shot, which uses AI to avoid common photography mishaps such as blur; Night Sight, which allegedly eliminates the need for flash even in low-light; and Super Res Zoom, which is created to keep images sharp even when the camera is zoomed in. The integrated magnets let me slid the flap up and down the Slate's rear for easy stand adjustment. Machine learning, new features, and more are all far more relevant. The new Google Home Hub sits alongside the existing Google Home, Google Home Mini and Google Home Max speakers. The tablet also appears to feature front-facing stereo speakers.

This marks the third consecutive year for the exclusive partnership, although the Pixel 3 can also be purchased unlocked in the Google store for $799 for the 65 GB version, with the Pixel 3 XL costing $899, according to The Verge. In some other European countries, it is a bit more expensive. The keyboard will be available for $199, and the pen will set you back $99.
