Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL and lot more to be unveiled

Google Pixel 3 XL Render

Google's Pixel 3 event begins at 11:00 AM ET on October 9th, so we'll soon see if they have any announcements left to surprise us. But Google has shaved off bezels around the screen considerably and has used a layer of glass on the back, something that also enables wireless charging in the new Pixel 3 phones.

In our hands-on preview of the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones, we covered numerous new features Google announced on stage during its big press event. So, if you wish to grab it, you need to have a Pixel device and rest assured, Google will take care of your AI experience.

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL are touted to be one of the worst kept secrets of the smartphone industry, with new leaks and rumours surfacing almost every week for the last few months. This time, we're getting a chance to see the Google Pixel Slate. The bigger Pixel 3 XL starts from $899 and goes up to $999 for the 128GB variant. Now the new introductions will be the one advancing this series.

It has an iPhone X-esque notch and a supposed OLED display that spans 6.2 inches, with a screen resolution of 1,440x2,960 pixels. Early prototypes leaked on the web showed the Pixel 3 XL having an all-glass body, with a look similar to its predecessor. Meanwhile, wireless charging, which was built-in before the Nexus line was renamed Pixel, has returned for the new handsets. Prices start at $799.

Google's current smart speaker line-up includes the Google Home, budget Home Mini and the Home Max. That's what the tech giant will be doing with its Google Home Hub which is the company's answer to Amazon's Echo Show.

The Home Hub will be connected to Google's Assistant, enabling it to display weather, calendar events, recipes and other pertinent information on the screen, according to MySmartPrice.com, which first published the images.

The tablet should have a front and back camera, with a clean back cover, with the small Google logo in the corner. The device will be featuring 16 GB of RAM and it will be powered by Intel Core i7 processor. This new Slate tablet by Pixel will go head-on against the new Apple iPad Pro, and it might also possibly come with a fingerprint sensor.

Google may have just killed its failed social media platform Google+, but on Tuesday, the company looked to the future by announcing a slate of new products. That being said, the new Pixelbook 2 is likely to come with a slight hardware upgrade and a revamped design. The screen should have a 3: 2 form factor and the stylus should be very similar to the one presented a year ago along with Pixelbook.

A new third-generation Chromecast might also be in the pipeline for the upcoming event. The device will be inferior to the other two Pixel smartphones, and it's not entirely impossible that may happen, as Google may want to test the mid-range market as well, though the device probably will not become official tomorrow.
