Leaked Google Pixel Slate Blue

With the Pixel 3 series, Google breaks the ₹90,000 barrier for Android smartphone pricing in India.

But is there really a demand for smaller handsets when everyone is going big?

With the Pixel 3, Google has finally added Qi wireless charging.

RAM and storage: The new Google Pixel 3 XL has 4GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of integrated storage. The display offers a way to see your schedule at a glance and while also give the user control of their connected home.

Join FierceWireless this October 17-18 in Dallas as we cover 5G and its part in a much larger story about the next generation of wireless, through a mix of keynotes and fireside chats, breakout sessions and panels. On the other hand, the Pixel 2 comes with a metallic back and matte finish on the bottom whereas there's a glossy finish up top.

And that's pretty much it.

The Pixel 3 has a 5.5-inch 18:9 screen with a 1080 x 2160 resolution. The phones are the successors of the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL respectively. What's important is that the ppi - pixels per inch - remains high so that the display is capable of showing fine details. It's a secret weapon of sorts in a fight that up until now has essentially been no-contest as PCMag sees it: The Apple iPad is simply the best midrange tablet for most people.

It works with Google's Assistant and hardware. In addition, Google will debut Titan Security for phones and Duplex with this third-generation line. By comparison, Apple sold about 217 million iPhones previous year. This time around, Google has also launched a Not Pink hue variant of the Pixel 3 along with the Black and Clearly White options. The stand can act as a charging part as well as keep showing the notifications on the phone's display screen. When your phone rings, you'll be able to summon Google Assistant with the tap of a button and have Duplex ask callers their name and objective. To scan and translate text, find similar styles of clothing, or identify popular plants and animals, you can now long press in the Pixel 3 camera to easily open Lens.

For a limited time, Verizon is offering a Buy One Get One free promo, so if a customer buys one Google Pixel 3, he or she gets a second 64 GB Pixel 3 on the house. It's still listed as AR Stickers here.

Although Google did not make any announcements about it on-stage, there's a new Chromecast.

For instance, the camera's features for better shots will take advantage of software on the device itself, so that nothing gets sent to Google's servers - unless you enable a backup feature with Google Photos. Super Res Zoom takes many photos in slightly different ways to composite a better zoomed in photo. With every other major smartphone manufacturer on the planet opting for dual- and, in some cases, triple-camera setups, Google must have plenty of confidence that its HDR+ algorithm will be able to deliver the goods once again. Our initial impression is that Google has made a sleek and stylish phone whose USP is the camera.

The fronts of the phones now have two separate cameras: an 8MP 28mm f/1.8 (35mm equiv.) standard one and an 8MP 19mm f/2.2 (35mm equiv.) wide-angle one.

The front camera has been spruced up to cover a wider angle when making video calls. Trust us, when it comes to taking group selfies, whoever is holding the Pixel will be doing the honours, and we're expecting great things here.

It is expected to come with Android 9 Pie, the latest Android software system.

The idea of having the ability to run full versions of some of my favorite productivity apps instead of the mobile versions is quite appealing.
