Google Pixel Slate 1 New Pixel phones are out today

Google's Pixel Stand is a different take on the wireless charger, one that can turn your phone into a small smart node.

The Pixel 3 XL comes with a large 6.3-inch display and it has a notch.

Other new camera features include a Photobooth mode (AI that snaps photos when it detects facial expressions), selective color mode, a Playground mode for playful photos (with stickers and captions), and super smooth video (with Motion Auto Focus and front-facing video stabilization).

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL phones, which Google revealed at its big hardware event Tuesday, will be the first smartphones from the search giant to support wireless charging.

"If you have a Google tattoo on you, then these are the phones for you", IDC analyst Ramon Llamas said of the Pixel's limited appeal so far. So if you were thinking about picking up a Home Hub, here's one more reason to.

What is Google Home Hub? On Google's blog, the company called the Pixel 3 the "most helpful device in your life", pointing out that the Smart Assistant can answer while the phone is charging and that the camera is designed so that it "won't miss a shot". Rumor has it that it'll cost $150.

The combination of the tablet with a keyboard suggests Google could challenge both Apple's iPad line and Microsoft's Surface products.

It will be offered in dark blue colour and features a touchscreen with a possible aspect ratio of 3:2. The first news about the Pixel-branded smartwatch came from reliable technology leaker Evan Blass and a "reliable source" of his.

The rear camera is a 12.2MP sensor with a f/1.8 aperture and a 1.4um pixel size. Google Photos offers free unlimited backup for optimized versions of your videos and photos to everyone else, but Google allows users to back up and store the original, full-quality, versions of his or her photo library. There's also a USB Type-C port on one of its sides. The display is backed by a "crystal clear speaker" and the attractive design with fabric base and rounded corner display is available in Chalk, Charcoal, Aqua and Sand finishes. The Pixel Slate accessory has four pogo pins through which all the data transfer happens.

As only the second Chrome OS tablet to ever be released to market, the Google Pixel Slate has a somewhat unique build compared to other devices in the family or category.

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. Going by what's on the tablet's screen in the image, there appears to be a newer version of Chrome OS software with a back button and a centralised icon dock at the bottom.

In addition to physical design updates, the phone added a few more features that are created to work in tandem with the new Android operating system 9.0. It features all the same music-playing and smart home connectivity of the regular Google Home, including the ability to set routines that can be triggered with a keyword or phrase, but also adds full support for video on YouTube.
