Google Chromecast Gets an Upgrade, Google Home Support

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

In line with expectations Google announced a new smart display today called the Google Home Hub. The units starts at $599 and can get as pricey as $1,599.

Google's Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are already available for pre-order from Google's online store, and orders will begin shipping next Thursday, October 18th.

Google has sold an estimated 7 million Pixels over the past two years, nearly imperceptible next to the 3.6 billion phones shipped during that time, according to IDC. The stand looks pretty plain but does keep your phone upright when charging.

The all-new Google Chromecast has the same rounded, hockey puck-esque shape introduced with the second-generation version of the media streamer.

The Google Pixel 3 XL is an excellent Android smartphone with a focus on software while the Galaxy Note 9 offers compelling hardware and software experiences. When Google first demoed Duplex on stage, in May, the technology caused significant controversy because it mimicked human speech so convincingly without telling callers that they were speaking to a bot and being recorded. A real-time transcript of the conversation will display on your screen.

Broad carrier availability: The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is available on all USA wireless carriers and various retailers. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are improvements over their predecessors in literally every way.

Up until today, if you wanted to buy a smart display device, chances are you may have gone for the Amazon Echo Show, the Alexa-enabled screen that first appeared in 2017, with a second-generation model now available for pre-order. When it comes to color choices, you get Clearly White, Just Black, and Not Pink.

Another smart speaker, but with a display built right in just like the Echo Show, the Home Hub has a 7-inch touchscreen although no camera is included. That's apparently a decision Google took to allow people to trust the device enough to have it in bedrooms, although it obviously means there is no video calling option. The Pixel cameras were already fantastic, but Google promises improved low-light performance, smart digital zoom, and photo corrections that can help you get the ideal shot even if you pressed the shutter at the wrong time. The firm is also expected to launch a new tablet computer - the Pixel Slate. It has dual front-facing speakers, but there's no headphone jack.

The Slate has a custom "molecular display", which is an LCD with a resolution of 3000 x 2000 and 400 nits of brightness.

Chrome OS itself has been tweaked to work with the tablet, including new split screen modes as well as deeper integration with Google Assistant.

However, some have insisted a more affordable model of the hardware will be made available that comes with a 7th-generation chip from Intel. The company spent plenty of time during its press conference in New York City on Tuesday detailing the many exciting new software features packed into its new phones, but Google obviously didn't have time to cover everything during its 90 minute presentation.
