Numerous details about the Google Pixel Slate have already been revealed to the world thanks to an appearance on Geekbench.

According to the latest leaks, Google's Pixel Slate, previously known under its codename "Nocture", will also forgo the 3.5mm port - something Google roundly mocked other companies for doing during its first Pixel launch.

Although there is no official confirmation, the tech giant is widely expected to unveil its 2018 line-up of Pixel smartphones at the event which could also see it release a number of other important gadgets. The one thing we don't know about the Pixel Slate is pricing, so unless there are even more leaks (entirely possible at this rate), it seems we will be waiting for something on October 9. After all, the Pixel Slate is only a tablet with a detachable keyboard, so it might not be too much of a big deal. The two phones will be functionally almost identical, the only major difference between them being size. Both smartphones will run on Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 845 10nm octa-core SoC, coupled with 4GB of RAM.

Another upgrade compared to the predecessor on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is going to be the presence of wireless charging capability.

After all the leaks, it's not surprising to know that Google will also reveal a new Chromecast dongle just like a year ago. The power button is at the top and there are front-facing stereo speakers. Just ahead of Google's event where we'll likely learn all about the Pixelbook 2, HP's announced its Chromebook x360 14.

A shop in Hong Kong somehow got ahold of Google's Pixel 3 phone, which was picked up by Engadget and revealed to the world. The new Google Home Hub will come with a 7-inch screen with the speaker behind it, and it will compete directly with the newly launched Amazon Echo Show. This Edge Sense enables you to squeeze the sides of to access Google Assistant. The 2-in-1 tablet will also come with a portable keyboard case, and it will work with Pixel Book pen.

Even though Pixel 3 XL accompanies a single sensor on the back and iPhone XS Max has a dual camera setup, the Google phone grabs more eye.

There are also rumors as to new Pixel Buds, the first earbuds to be made by Google back in 2017. The new wireless pad is said to come with the 2A/9V rating similar to Samsung's take on wireless charging. What exactly the difference will be compared to the original Pixelbook is unknown, but mostly there are talks of spec improvements like new processors and more RAM.

A new third-generation Chromecast might also be in the pipeline for the upcoming event.

The Pixel series hasn't been as successful as Google wanted it to be, so there's a lot of performance pressure on the people associated with it. Google has always been a software company primarily and that's what they do best, but with the HTC acquisition they can hopefully nail the hardware and design part as well.
