Google Pixel 3 event

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel Slate to new Chromecast: Here’s what to expect from the Google event tonight

The new Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL. As ever, the new Pixel phones are the main event, but that's not all as Google's hardware ambitions extend to smart-home products and the odd laptop or two.

It's thanks to these smart additions that we're likely to have another absolute fantastic Pixel smartphone on our hands and hopefully one that isn't besieged with issues like last year's Pixel 2 XL.

Top Shot does what it says on the tin: the camera takes a bunch of photos before and after you press the shutter and then select the best ones for you. The second-gen Pixel phones came with new design along with improved software.

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL are available for pre-order now from Verizon, Project Fi, and the Google Store unlocked.

The bezels are fairly thin (for a tablet anyway), but still big enough for dual front-facing speakers and for resting your thumbs. It's also hiring photographer Annie Leibovitz to take pictures with the new Pixel in an effort to persuade consumers its camera is superior to the iPhone XS that Apple released last month.

AI, embodied in Google's talking Assistant, also promises to be more of a sidekick in the Pixel 3. It also measures just 7mm thin and 1.6 lbs. The Pixel 3 was priced at CNY 4,999 (roughly Rs 53,000).

How To Watch Google's Pixel 3 Event
Reportedly, Google is also planning to add the Pixel camera app into the Slate to help it shoot Pixel phones-like bokeh shots. Recently, a Redditor posted an image of a new Chromecast device he claimed to have bought from a local Best Buy.

For ports and slots, the Galaxy S9 just gets further ahead. It connects magnetically, features a kickstand, and there's no charging required. There's also a prominent "chin" at the bottom of the phone.

Everything is stepped up on the Galaxy S9.

All of the Pixel Slate models have a 12.3-inch touch-screen display with a 3000 x 2000 resolution. It also supports Mobile HDR Premium content. While we don't expect any changes in the naming pattern, the new Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL would surely be more up-to-date in terms of a taller aspect ratio screen with a notch, perhaps a slightly tweaked design, up to date internals and the Android 9 Pie.

Google knows a lot about you, including, apparently, how much you hate answering the phone.

The base version is $599/£549 and comes with a lowly Celeron CPU, 4GB of RAM and just 32GB storage. However, the S9 internal storage can be configured as high as 256GB, and microSD card support allows for even more storage beyond that.

The Pixel 3 has a 2915mAh battery and the Pixel 3 XL has a 3450mAh battery. And, wireless charging is an option on both phones. However, Google is yet to confirm the specifications of the smartphones and other hardware.

Dybala’s hat trick helps Juventus beat Young Boys 3-0
Real Madrid haven't scored in three matches in a row, something that never happened during Cristiano Ronaldo's time at the club. In the 33rd minute Blaise Matuidi forced a save from David Von Ballmoos that Dybala followed up and calmly place in the net.

The Pixel 3 rear camera is worse on paper. It does offer optical and electronic image stabilization, but its video capabilities are limited, only hitting 30fps for 4K and 120fps for 1080p. Google says this is so as to save battery power.

As to how good the Hub is, we'd have to wait when there are actual units to review.

The Galaxy S9 front-facing camera has an 8MP sensor with an 80-degree FOV an wide f/1.7 aperture.

As ever, most things have leaked, so we know an very bad lot about what's coming out.

We even had internal codenames. The Pixel Slate accessory has four pogo pins through which all the data transfer happens. I wouldn't want to hold this up in the air for more than a handful of minutes, unless I was perhaps cradling it in my hand in portrait mode to draw with the Pixel Pen.
