New Pixel phones are out today

  • Google's Pixel Slate Tablet Hasn't Even Been Announced Yet and I Already Want One

The previous editions of the Pixel phones have already shown that armed with the most versatile artificially intelligent image processing algorithms working in the background, even a single camera does wonders.

Pixel-series isn't Google's first hardware.

But what about this years? Last week, Verizon ominously halted Pixel 2 sales, but while all your attention might be directed at the hot new Pixel 3 and 3 XL, it's worth highlighting the two's predecessors are still around.

Google's unnervingly human-like voice system, Duplex, is gaining new responsibilities, the tech giant announced at the launch event for its Pixel 3 smartphone today.

People have been pining after a Pixel Watch for a while now, but prepare to be disappointed if you're among them as it isn't going to happen.

All of the Pixel Slate models have a 12.3-inch touch-screen display with a 3000 x 2000 resolution. However, the frosted design of the part that is metal on the Pixel 2 duo fools you into thinking it isn't glass.

Indonesia quake , tsunami toll reaches 1,649
Indonesia has the world's biggest Muslim population but also pockets of Christians, including on Sulawesi, and other religions. Air Loadmaster Sergeant Daniel Swanson and Indonesian soldiers help offload supplies flown into Palu on an RNZAF Hercules.

Expected today are the much leaked Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL. The new Pixel will also feature dual front-facing cameras that will allow for wide-angle selfies. There's 4GB of RAM and it comes with 64GB or 128GB of storage. There are two USB-C ports with the capabilities of 4K output, unspecified fast data transfer and charging. You know the drill. On the front and rear are 8MP cameras. You just answered the phone without ever actually picking it up. As before, Google's rear snapper is just phenomenal. Google, it seems, is confident it can do the kind of depth of field trickery seen on rivals without the aid of a second camera. If you are purchasing a Pixel 3 phone why not have a look at one or more of these accessories and add them to your cart.

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL come packing a slew of new features that are sure to make them incredibly popular with Android fans. Machine learning, new features, and more are all far more relevant. Other phone makers sometimes crowd out Google's apps with their own or take a share of ad revenue.

Interestingly, Google is bringing its controversial Duplex technology to the Pixel 3 first - although it will roll out to older Pixel devices in time. In addition, Google will debut Titan Security for phones and Duplex with this third-generation line. Not bad, if not a tad worrying. Google's custom wireless charging stand for the phones is another $80.

Google is also likely to roll out several other gadgets, including new version of its "smart" Home speaker, a rumored tablet with a detachable keyboard and an update to its Chromecast streaming device, based on media leaks. In a simultaneous launch across Paris, London, Tokyo and Singapore, it showcased an upgraded Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL with revamped cameras, design, processor.

Google shipped 2.53 million Pixel 2 and 2 XL devices through the nine months ended June 30, garnering less than 1 percent of the global market for smartphones, according to research firm Strategy Analytics. Unfortunately, only time can tell on that.

Liu pitches the Pixel Slate as having the "best of both worlds" when it comes to both mobile and desktop computing. However, Google is yet to confirm the specifications of the smartphones and other hardware.
