Premiere tablet and smartphone scheduled for 9 October. The pictures flaunt the tablet utilizing Chrome OS and a detachable keyboard. However, it is still unclear if the new devices will come with front-facing cameras for video calls like we have seen in Lenovo and JBL devices.
Overall, looks like we have a lot to lot forward to once the Pixel 3 XL gets official! Not much has been said about the Pixel Mini, but Google recently hinted that the phone exists on the Made by Google Instagram account. I mean, it certainly isn't going to announce a "Pixel Ultra". Hence we expect the company to launch the Pixel 3 series smartphones and tablets today but add a few more surprises as well. Smartphones will be running Android operating system 9 Pie. The premium Android smartphones reportedly have water and dust resistance certification (IP68).
It is supposed to have a Snapdragon 845 chipset, which is clocked at up to 2.8GHz and paired with a choice of 64GB or 128GB of storage, but no microSD card slot. It won't surprising to see Google name the two names with a dash of pun. The rear of the devices could have a single 12MP unit. The Pixel 3 XL is by far the more controversial right now because of it's ridiculously deep notch.
An exclusive report by MySmartPrice revealed the first images of the Pixel Slate, which will be Google's first Chrome OS tablet and its challenger to Microsoft's Surface Pro line. The display may an aspect ratio of 3:2, and have multi-touch and stylus support. Smaller and more mobile in each of the colors, front and back.
There's also rumours about two new colour variants-pink and aqua. It is also possible the appearance of the fingerprint scanner. The accessory has four pogo pins for connectivity and data transfer. All the keys are rounded, and there is a dedicated button to launch Google Assistant. Moreover, it can easily fold, which transforms the tablet into a laptop.
In the past few years, the search engine giant has moved into the hardware space with gusto in an attempt to compete with the likes of Apple and Amazon with gadgets including smartphones and home speakers.
