Google Pixel 3 and 3XL launched, price begins at Rs. 71000

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

Google today held its annual Made By Google event, where it showed off its newest toys.

Google isn't content to just launch a couple of new phones and a smart speaker with a screen.

Now, this device is unique compared to other displays, because it doesn't come with any cameras.

While Google's phones have larger screens, they do look similar to their predecessors except for fully glass backs. It also has soft rounded corners, and is created to sit on a range of surfaces, such as the kitchen counter or nightstand, according to Google.

It lets you not only hear Google Assistant and your app integrations but also see them and the information you're seeking. Home Hub is the newest member of the Google Home family, joining Home, Home Mini, and Home Max. Like those, it features Google Assistant.

The 7mm-thin Google Pixel Slate will ship in now fewer than five configurations starting with a more budget-friendly option powered by an Intel Celeron Kaby Lake processor backed by either 4GB or 8GB RAM. Ok, that may not sound like the most compelling headline, but this is Google we're talking about and they've entered the space in a way that only they can - with never before seen functionalities.

Google Home Hub measures 67mm (D) x 178.5 (W) x 118 (H) and weighs 480g. This can be accessed with a swipe down from the top of screen and brings up a dashboard that maps out your entire smart home, giving you a visual overview of all your connected devices. For voice commands the device has a 2 mic array. This extends to enhanced experiences, like hands-free cooking with online recipes, briefings on your day's events, and even smart home control.

Below are 5 reasons you should pick upcoming Google's Pixel phone over Apple's iPhone and Samsung's Galaxy lineup.

Google Home Hub doubles as a photo frame. With Google Photos integration, the Home Hub can display existing albums or have Google curate an album for you. "Go ahead and say your name, and why you are calling".

The Google Home Hub connects to your home network and other devices by 802.11b/g/n/ac (2.4GHz/5GHz) Wi-Fi. It says the sensor "automatically detects and matches over 16 million combinations of light and colour, so your photos blend in with your home decor". A fancy way of saying it'll dim the screen in the dark, then.

One new feature is Home View. When you add in the three more hours of battery life according to Microsoft, it's just no longer a competition anymore, if the only things driving your decision making are the specs of each device. There is also an option available to broadcast a message or check your cameras (like through Nest Hello) or turn up the volume on the TV, and so on. You can control over 10,000 types of smart home devices from over 1,000 popular brands.

GoogleHow much is Google Home Hub?

The product starts at $599 and will be available later this year. This fabric comes in Sand, Aqua, Chalk, and Charcoal - soft pastel colors that give enough variety to work with most any room. The launch confirmed what we already knew about both phones based on the leaks and also reveal some new details.

GoogleWhen will Google Home Hub be available?

Pre-orders are open now.
