Google Pulls Back the Curtain on Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL

For those that really like displays For those that really like displays

Perhaps critically, it does not contain a camera: something that Google explicitly noted was so that people feel comfortable taking it with them into private places - like on your bedside table.

Likewise, you can attach it to existing Google Home speakers in your house for multi-room audio. The device is impressively thin, giving it a sleek appearance, albeit at the expense of losing the headphone jack which some may not like.

The Pixel Slate tablet has a 6-million pixel display and was described as "a flawless device for play and work", by Trond Wuellner, Google's director of product management.

Other new camera features include a Photobooth mode (AI that snaps photos when it detects facial expressions), selective color mode, a Playground mode for playful photos (with stickers and captions), and super smooth video (with Motion Auto Focus and front-facing video stabilization).

The Pixel 3 is a better-looking phone, in my opinion.

Google already offers a way to filter calls suspected of being spam.

Additionally, several of gospel and R&B's heaviest hitters will assemble for what's sure to be a touching Aretha Franklin tribute. Her comments drove a spike in voter registration.

The Hub - launched today amid the official unveiling of Google's Pixel 3 and 3XL smartphones - is a semi-moveable dashboard with a screen that will communicate with smart home products from its Nest subsidiary as well as its music and TV services from YouTube and the central Google digital assistant.

Google Pixel 3 comes packing a 5.5-inch display while the Pixel 3 XL touts a 6.3-inch panel. On many Android phones and tablets, you can swipe up or down from the home screen to reveal all of your apps. Instead of being attached on a 360-degree hinge, the Pixel Slate's keyboard is detachable.

In contrast to the other Android-equipped offerings on the market, the Pixel is seen as a step between Apple's iOS and other flagship phones from competitors like Samsung. It instantly works when connected to the tablet. I wouldn't use the robot on mom, but it definitely might help with spam. The circle keys are a bit odd visually at first, but they were great to type on. They weren't overly shallow or noisy. If the Pixel 3 thinks it got a better shot than you, it'll pop up as a suggestion. However, from our initial time with the devices, it's clear that Google is really only just hitting its vision of melding of hardware and AI-driven software - something it set out to do back with the original Pixel in 2016. The highest end model costs $1,599 and comes with an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

However, not included with the tablet is the separately sold $199 Pixel Slate Keyboard.

It's an easy decision when your choices are to pay for more iCloud storage, or have Google Photos upload lower-quality photos for free on a Galaxy device. Without at least one of these accessories, you won't get the most out of the Pixel Slate.
