The notch on the Pixel 3 XL sucks

Google Pixel Slate Blue Keyboard Leak UPDATE: Telcos respond. No Pixel 3 for Kiwis - Why the snub, Google?

That's going to be excellent for price conscious consumers, but keep in mind that you're not going to get stellar productivity from a Celeron CPU with 4GB of RAM in 2018.

As to the details of Google's Home Hub.

Another highlight of the tablet is the Split screen that is integrated for smooth multitasking and Google Assistant.

The Home Hub has a 7-inch touch screen, but you can interact with it entirely by voice.

The iPhone also features Google's search engine, but Google may be paying Apple as much as $9 billion annually for that privilege, based on the estimates of Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall. With every other major smartphone manufacturer on the planet opting for dual- and, in some cases, triple-camera setups, Google must have plenty of confidence that its HDR+ algorithm will be able to deliver the goods once again.

The Google Home Hub is the other device to have figured in the NY event.

The Pixel Slate is the company's first in-house tablet in over three years. Set in a slick midnight blue colour, the device is created to have a perfectly balanced center of gravity and remain extremely light despite it's power. It will be sold separately at ₹ 6,900. Pixel Slate will go on sale in the USA and Canada later this year, Google said. It's not like she doesn't already have the very finest photographic equipment that is available to buy.

The Pixel 3 is priced at $799/€849 for the 64GB model and $899/€949 if you want double the storage.

And in an effort to protect you from you, Google has also added Digital Wellbeing to monitor and limit your device and app usage. The device features Home View, a dashboard for the spectrum of home devices, including appliances, DVRs, lights and thermostats.

Now, Google has announced the pricing for the Pixel 3 series in India. Google says the Pixel Visual Core chipset that handles imaging is back but we are not sure if this is the same or an upgraded one. There's no Bluetooth but just Wi-Fi 802.11ac.

The only changes are that it now supports 1080p resolution at 60fps versus the previous 720p at 60fps or 1080p at 30fps, and it now lets users play music in sync with other speakers Google's smart devices, like a Chromecast Audio dongle.

Plus Google has become, in part, a hardware company, so not all of its drive will be to make revenue from selling data grabbed by software. You can even add to your shopping list or make a purchase with Google Express.

The Pixel 3's 64GB storage variant costs ₹71,000 ($958) in India, while the 128GB storage variant has a price tag of ₹80,000 ($1,080). The Pixel 3 packs in top-of-the-line specs like Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, so it is expected to deliver smooth performance.

The display on Pixel 3 stands at 5.5-inch and while compared to its larger sibling, it looks slightly toned down, which is understandable. There is no headphone jack again on either of these two devices.

We won't know about battery life until we've tested the phone properly with our video-rundown test and used the phone in anger, but the battery is worryingly small at 2,915mAh. It is also not clear whether Google will be rolling out Duplex to all Pixel phones.

With the Pixel 3, Google has finally added Qi wireless charging. Colors are Clearly White, Just Black, and Not Pink.
