Google Pixel 3, 3 XL coming to India, but not everything else

Google Pixel Slate Blue Keyboard Leak

Google Pixel Slate Blue Keyboard Leak

Tech giant Google continues to push into hardware after unveiling its first Pixel phones in 2016, two years later they release their newest flagship phones, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

The Pixel Stand can also charge other Qi-compatible devices, but all of those new smart abilities are reserved for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL only. Both Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL come armed with a host of new features.

Google has been reconfiguring its tablet offerings over the last few years, eschewing the Android tablets of the past in favor of new devices under Chrome OS.

Google also introduced a new device called Home Hub that pairs a small display screen with an internet-connected speaker.

Both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL feature a 12.2MP single sensor on the rear and feature exclusive in-camera Google Lens suggestions that work real-time.

In addition to the headphones, the Pixel 3 XL will include two charging cables: USB-C to USB-A (for traditional chargers), as well as a USB-C-to-USB-C.

Pricing for the Pixel 3 phone starts at $799 and the Pixel 3 XL starts at $899, significantly cheaper than Apple's high-end iPhones, which start at $999 and $1,099 for the Xs and Xs Max, respectively. The Hub is created to be, as the name indicates, a node through which you can control all of your smart home devices, down to individual rooms.

The introduction of a $79 Pixel Stand has excited the observers. We've already seen smart displays with Google Assistant baked in from the likes of Lenovo and LG, and now Google has launched one of its own.

The latest Pixel phones are likely to attract the most attention, even though the first two generations have so far barely made a dent in the market. The keyboard is backlit with rounded keys and connects to the Pixel Slate via a smart connector at the bottom of the device.

Upon using the new feature, a real-time transcript appears on your screen, thus giving you a choice to decide whether to pick it up or not. Google's "Active Edge" feature that lets you squeeze your phone to invoke the Google Assistant also remains. You can wirelessly connect the Pixel Slate to a Pixel Slate keyboard and use a Pixelbook Pen which has to be purchased separately.
