Made by Google Event Kicks Off at 11AM Eastern!

Continuing my whirlwind trip of New York City, today I'm here at Google's annual "Made by Google" event.

The Pixel 3 XL boasts a 6.7-inch display, nearly an inch larger than the Pixel 2 XL, while the smaller Pixel 3 has a 5.3-inch display.

There have been so many leaks of Google's hardware over the last month or so that we know most of what's coming.

The Google Pixel 2 started at a price of around Rs 61,000 and the Pixel 3 is expected to be slightly higher than its predecessor. The tech giant recently sent out invitations for an event to be held on October 9.

Like last year's Pixel, the Pixel 3 won't have a headphone jack and Google is rumored to be bundling a pair of USB-C Pixel Buds in the box this year.

As per the rumours, the Google Pixel 3 will feature a 5.5-inch full-HD+ (1080x2160 pixels) display, while the Pixel 3 XL will come with a 6.3-inch (1440x2880 pixels) QHD+ display.

Stay tuned for the live updates.

Analysts are also expecting Google to add higher resolution and more cameras to the Pixel, whose first two generations attracted rave reviews for its high-quality pictures.

Google's current smart speaker line-up includes the Google Home, budget Home Mini and the Home Max.

The new Pixel phones are expected to follow the trend of expanding the phone screen almost to the edges of the device. The Pixel 3 is rumoured to include a 3,915mAh battery, while the Pixel 3 XL could have a 3,430mAh battery. In terms of specifications, Google Pixel 2 comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM and 12.3-megapixel camera.

This might be received well by several fans, as Apple completely skipped on its AirPower charging mat during the launch of its new iPhone trio.
