Google Unveils the Pixel 3 and 3XL with New AI Camera Features

Like the iPhone Xs, the larger of the two phones has a notch at the top of the 6.3-inch display to increase the screen-to-body ratio as much as possible. "Simply point your camera, and with a single tap, call or save a phone number on a takeout menu, send an email right from a flyer, or open an address in Google Maps". These phones are more expensive than last year's Pixels.

Google has succeeded with lower-priced devices like smart speakers and home routers, but the phones have been a tougher sell. Shortly after the introduction of the new iPhones, the second was the iPhone Xs Max.

Ryan Reith, who leads device research at tech consulting firm IDC, said Google did not change enough in the Pixel 3 for it to stand apart from more well-known competitors. The third generation of Pixel phones comes in two sizes, and both feature high-definition screens that span from one edge to another.

The RAM remains 4GB, a reaffirmation from Google that you don't need more than that to run Android (Pure Android). "This is a attractive way to do more than one thing at once".

Another highlight of the tablet is the Split screen that is integrated for smooth multitasking and Google Assistant. In another apparent nod to privacy concerns, Google didn't put a camera on its Home Hub like Amazon and Facebook did with their respective devices to enable video calls. We've reached out to Google for clarity and will update if we hear back. They look like nice devices, but Google's pricing is getting a little out of hand.

Google will, of course, also use its Home Hub to try to make money from you: by storing all your requests for information, news, music, video, travel, etc, to your profile and then neatly package it all up for advertisers.

Google started talking about Assistant on smart displays earlier this year, but it was not the first company to launch such a device.

The phones mirror an industry trend toward lusher, bigger screens and add twists on the camera for better pictures. They'll come in three colors: black, white and pink.

Google has unveiled the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL smartphones.

The Pixel Slate Keyboard is backlit and full-size - Google claims studies have shown that compared to squares, the round buttons used on its keyboard result in less user fatigue and are actually easier to use. However, there were a few details, especially software ones, that we weren't aware of.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be the first Pixel phones to launch in France at the same time as the US, FrAndroid explains. The phones also offer wireless charging.

After the official introduction of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones yesterday, DisplayMate took it to Twitter to tell us about their findings. An optional detachable keyboard - it magnetically attaches itself to the device - basically turns the tablet into a laptop, and is quite expensive at $199 United States dollars. A pen for use on the touchscreen costs US$99.
