The new Pixel-branded phones will anchor a product event Tuesday in NY. The event will kick off at 11:00AM ET, which corresponds to 8:30PM IST. But this might be a cheaper variant of the device and other variants with higher RAM and a bigger storage might also be available.
The Pixel 3 XL is expected to sport dual, front-facing cameras with one wide-angle sensor to allow users to take "Super Selfies" that automatically blur the background behind the subject. The renders of the rumored tablet have also leaked. It is clear, Google may not be going for any radical changes.
That doesn't necessarily mean that all the leaks we've seen are innacurate or a planned misinformation campaign, however.
A few days ago, we saw a brand new Pixel 3 review from Hong Kong, with just a few days to go until Google's keynote. The review reveals nearly everything about the two Pixel phones. The reviewer says the camera aboard the Pixel 3 XL is better than the one inside the Pixel 2 XL - and that one was no slouch.
Google's news app is being overhauled and the editorial focus is now powered largely by AI.
Google's free Android software operates most of the world's smartphones. Even the HDR+ feature helps photos to have a good dynamic range, and some of the credits can be given to the dedicated Pixel Visual Core.
We're expecting Google to drop news on its latest Pixel smartphones any day now.
"If you have a Google tattoo on you, then these are the phones for you", IDC analyst Ramon Llamas said of the Pixel's limited appeal so far.
The original Pixel Bud (shown above) might now be included in the box with Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, but a new version is expected to be revealed tomorrow. The devices will get the batteries on 3000 and 3430 mAh, depending on size.
Google doesn't disclose its phone shipments, unlike Apple, which has sold about 388 million iPhones since the first Pixel came out in October 2016. There will also be events in Berlin and London. The improved pen for the Pixelbooks should also work on the new Google tablet. With the top mounted fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication, the Pixel Slate is expected to come in four models. It'll be interesting to see what comes of that long wait. Report from MySmartPrice also suggests that the new charging mat will activate a particular smart display mode on both devices when connected.
