  • Google Pixel 3 XL Is Already Selling In Hong Kong Before Launch

However, if you are interested in following the live streaming of the presentation of the new Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL, you should know that the event is scheduled for tomorrow at 11 am in NY. The fingerprint scanner is located at the rear, there's no headphone jack, stereo front-facing speakers which is up to 40 percent louder, and the USB-C port is located at the bottom. A video by Engadget reveals that the glass shades at the back of the smartphones will now wrap around the frame of the phone in a more rounded fashion.

Other than the notch, the Pixel 3 packs a Snapdragon 845 chip, 4GB of RAM, 8MP rear and front camera, and features created to help users control excessive phone use, screen phone calls, and AI-powered features. The base storage is either 64GB or 128GB, and there was no mention of microSD card support.

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL are expected to feature a similar design to the Pixel 2- dual-tone, half-glass, half-matte back with rounded corners everywhere-only with some subtle differences. It will available for purchase in US, UK and Australia on October 22. The handsets will arrive in the United States on October 18, with availability expanding to 12 other countries on November 1. We will see finally what Google is offering in it's hardware lineup this year. Given that the Chromecast hasn't received a new advanced version for a few years, it's entirely possible that Google might unveil the third generation Chromecast.

More plausible is the Pixel Slate tablet-laptop hybrid. The front-facing camera has large pixels and a wide-angle lens, for good performance in low light and for capturing groups in video chat respectively. It has round keys and full backlighting.

Google is also going to be launching the first Chrome OS tablet named the Pixel Slate Tablet at the upcoming event.

Google Pixel 3 XL Is Already Selling In Hong Kong Before Launch

Here is all the evidence for and against the Google Pixel watch. 64 GB and 128 GB are available for storage through Google opted out for the expandable storage option. The Pixel Slate Keyboard comes in at an absurd $199 (about £150), which is even more expensive than Microsoft's Surface Type Covers.

Google's $149 Home Hub, a voice-controlled cloud-connected personal assistant, is unlike Facebook's Portal as it doesn't include a camera, let alone one that tracks you around the bedroom.

The smart device is intended for you to help in looking up directions, checking the calendar, calling the restaurant, and much more. The Hub now recognizes who is speaking, and has a sleep mode where it won't interact with anyone, according to Google, which is clearly conscious of family safety issues, but not so conscious to build in decent parental controls.

Leaks are one thing, but a retailer accidentally selling a product early is something different altogether.
