The Pixel 3 XL has a 15cm screen, 128GB storage capacity, and a Snapdragon 845 chipset, as well as four gigabytes of RAM (though Lai noted the possibility of a premium version with six gigabytes).

Leaving Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL aside, the second most highly anticipated device that the Android parent is scheduled to reveal tomorrow is the Google Home Hub.

The tech giant stated on their Instagram post that "We've heard rumors of a mini Pixel".

The new Pixel phones have similar form factors to the Pixel 2 phones, but the most significant change is the addition of a notch to the larger Pixel 3 XL, which will have a 6.5-inch display.

And finally there is expected to be a new Chromecast.

The major point of difference between the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is going to be the size and screen.

Along with Currys selling Google's flagship at hugely discounted prices, Carphone Warehouse also has identical SIM-Free offers on these phones.

There isn't a ton of new stuff to learn since that first leak and a following benchmark, but this is the first all-angle look we've really got.

After all the leaks, it's not surprising to know that Google will also reveal a new Chromecast dongle just like a year ago.

From the photo above and Engadget's early hands-on, both Pixels will have dual-front facing cameras. The internet is buzzing with leaks about Google's new smartphones and therefore, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect.

Google, taking a cue from other OEMs, is bumping up the display sizes on its upcoming smartphones.

Just like always, The company is expected to launch a new smart home assistant and this year it might be called as Home Hub. The carrier is also running promotions where customers will get six months of free Apple Music and 24 months of inclusive access to the BTR Sports app. The device will be featuring 16 GB of RAM and it will be powered by Intel Core i7 processor. Thanks to MySmartPrice and the search giant's United Kingdom online store (via ChromeUnboxed), we have official-looking renders of a collapsible keyboard and a new Pixelbook Pen.

In the same tweet, Blass also claims that a "Pixel-branded watch" can be expected although nothing more is known, so that may be one for a later launch. The two smartphones will ship with new designs and improved hardware specs when compared to the previous models.

A new third-generation Chromecast might also be in the pipeline for the upcoming event. Google will definitely throw in some new camera features made possible by software as well.
