Google’s Live Albums Can Automatically Share Your Best Photos

Google Announces Pixel 3, Pixel Slate Tablet, New Chromecast, Home Hub, More

The Hub is a Smart Display by Google that integrates Google Photos, a visual version of the Google Assistant, YouTube, and other services.

Not to forget, this is a smart home device we're talking about.

One of the major disappoints of the new Google Home Hub, however, is the omission of a camera for Google Duo video calls.

The camera, for instance, promises better low-light and close-up shots by using software to combine multiple shots taken in succession. After debuting the concept with the Acer Chromebook Tab 10, Google now has its first-party Chrome OS tablet hardware, the Pixel Slate. It runs Chrome OS on a device with a 12.3-inch display. The front and rear of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are protected by Gorilla Glass 5.

However, not included with the tablet is the separately sold $199 Pixel Slate Keyboard.

We are also happy with the keyboard, which enables smooth typing with its good for the class key travel and it attaches very firmly to the pogo pins. The M3 is $799, the i5 is $999, and i7 is $1599.

After weeks of leaks, Google today took to stage in NY to share information about what was already leaked into oblivion, but you've got to give the company props for turning up at least. As we've seen with the new iPhones, it's possible to adjust background blur after taking a shot, and there are plenty of other features too. There's no Bluetooth but just Wi-Fi 802.11ac. The company says the new Chromecast comes with 15% improvement in hardware speed. However, the latter feature won't launch until later this year. This device will launch in a few weeks, but you can join a waitlist on the Google Store. The other, Call Screen, will screen calls for users and will be made available with Pixel 3 series smartphones at launch.

Under the hood, both the devices are packed with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 SoC that comes mated to a 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB ROM (Non-expandable).

There's 128GB of storage and a fingerprint scanner on the back of both devices. The larger Pixel 3 XL might be a big step in the wrong direction where design is concerned, but only if you're among a small group of vocal Android fans who hate the iPhone X style notch at the top of the phone's display. There's no 3.5mm audio jack either, which means you either have to go with USB-C headphones or wireless ones. The California-based firm finally took off the wraps of its new-generation devices - the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL - and quite rightly there's some amount of buzz around the phones. When you place the new Pixel 3 phone on it, the phone's entire UI reorients, effectively turning Pixel 3 into a Google Assistant-enabled smart speaker. Enhancements to the Pixel's camera software include the ability to keep focused on moving objects, extract phone numbers from business cards, and identify products, such as the sunglasses your friend is wearing. As for JBL's Link View - black is the only color option available.

Google began receiving orders for the Pixel 3 series through its website Wednesday, while mobile phone carriers SoftBank Corp. and NTT Docomo Inc. will start taking preorders on October 19 for the phones.
