Google unveils new Pixel smartphone at 10 media events around the world

Pixel 3 XL hands Google poised to unveil new Pixel phones, other services

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 has finally introduced wireless charging into its phones with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, and as such, the firm has also debuted its Pixel Stand wireless charger. But here's the thing-not everything launched at the event will come to India. But it was a odd call-out, since Google already puts cameras in your home through the Pixel phones and Nest Cam home-security cameras. The Pixel 3 starts at $799 and the Pixel 3 XL starts at $899. The phones will be available for sale starting 1 November.

"Pixel 3 will be available from Verizon in two sizes: "the 5.5" Pixel 3 and the 6.3" Pixel 3 XL, both available in 64 GB and 128 GB memory options.

The Pixel 3 is priced from 95,000 yen and the Pixel 3 XL from 119,000 yen. At least if you have any strong feelings for or against notches and want a Google Pixel 3, you still have a choice.

The Pixel line-up is known for its AI-enabled camera performance and Pixel 3 and 3 XL take it a bit further.

The company also showed off several AI applications that will appear first on Pixel 3, before presumably rolling out to other Android devices.

And because there's now a wide-angle lens fitted to the front-facing camera, you can get more in.

The phones mirror an industry trend toward lusher, bigger screens and add twists on the camera for better pictures.

At a Tuesday event in NY, the Alphabet-owned search giant said the new Pixel 3 will boast a feature called "Top Shot" that will avoid blinks and poor timing by selecting the best moment to take a picture when the subjects are in frame.

Google's annual hardware show saw the announcement of several new products including the Pixel 3, Google Home Hub and Chromecast 3.

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

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XLThe latest Pixel phone lineup. It still combines the standard Chrome OS flavor of Linux with emulated Android applications, but the keyboard is separate and the interface is specifically created to be a tablet, not a laptop or phone pretending to be a tablet, as Google puts it.

Both Pixels have a fingerprint sensor mounted on their rears, and there are front-facing speakers that are 40 percent louder than in previous generations.

I especially appreciate the magnetic cover for the keyboard, which sports rounded backlit keys that were very comfortable to type on during my brief demo. Both devices can be connected to the Slate via Bluetooth. And it is pushing its cable-cutting YouTubeTV service, which costs $40 a month but which you now get for free for six months when you buy a Hub (a value that is more than the actual cost of the device). And you can easily opt-out from receiving calls over the phone by telling the Google Assistant or going to the settings in your Google My Business account.
