Google Pixel 3 XL Goes On Sale Before Official Launch

TODO alt text Google to announce new Pixel smartphone to take on Apple and Samsung

Google will be announcing its third-generation Pixel series smartphones tomorrow, i.e. 9th October, at a launch event in NY, along with a few other devices.

Talking about the cameras which undoubtedly become the highlight of Google's Pixel lineup, the rear camera setup remains largely the same as the Pixel 2. These two new smartphones are said to be successors to the old Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 Xl smartphones.

For everyone else, the Pixel 3 XL and smaller Pixel 3 are both fantastic phones that pack a ton of new software features into Google's most impressive smartphone hardware to date.

Google announced not only the latest updates to its flagship Pixel phones, but also a new smart home hub, a tablet, and a number of accessories to enhance its devices.

Google Pixel 3 XL Google Pixel 3 XL comes with a larger 6.3-inch OLED notched display with QHD+ resolution, 523ppi pixel density, 18:5:9 aspect ratio, Gorilla Glass 5 protection and HDR support. The look has stirred controversy, but it may be a worthy trade-off for the two selfie cameras. Speaking of which, the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will both be fueled by the Snapdragon 845 64-bit octa-core SoC, both phones will ship with Android 9 Pie out of the box, and both devices will include a single camera on the back, and a fingerprint scanner back there as well.

It's also probable that a rocket fired from the Quad Launcher won't do as much damage as one fired from a standard Launcher. Assuming the bundled items are worth a similar amount, that means players are saving $10-20 dollars.

Today, Google has unveiled about the third generation of its all-new Pixel Smartphones. Both run Android 9.0 (Pie). If you wish to grab Pixel Slate, you are supposed to shell out $599, and for keyboard and pen, it's additional $199 and $99. It'll be interesting to see what comes of that long wait. On top of the, if left idle, the Home Hub will work as a picture frame and will display photos from the Google Photos app. The various functionalities will be managed through the voice commands of Google Assistant, but we also expect a deep integration with the Android Things ecosystem. We were provided no information as to whether the software running on the unit was finalized. Google launched its line of high-end phones two years ago to better compete against Apple, Samsung and other device makers. The Huawei MateBook X Pro is now the one to beat.

All these products which announced in the Google Pixel 3 event, and we are sure, you must be impressed with it. The new phones come preloaded with Playmoji AR characters, interactive facial animations and more.

The Titan M is a security chip built for the Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, and Pixel Slate.

The phones come in black, white, and an pinkish off-white that Google archly calls "not pink", but which is, of course, pink. The Pixel 3 XL price in Canada, on the other hand, is set at CAD $1,129 (roughly Rs. 64,300) for the 64GB variant, whereas the 128GB Pixel 3 XL has been listed at CAD $1,259 (roughly Rs. 71,700).
