Liveblog: Google’s Pixel 3 launch event at 11am ET Tuesday, October 9

10 October 2018

Google Pixel 3XL, Pixel 3, Google Pixel Slate & Home Hub Officially Unveiled.

The Pixel 3 will cost Rs 71,000 for the 64GB variant in India and up to Rs 80,000 for the 128GB storage variant. The tech giant will unveil the Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL at it's annual "Made by Google" event. From Nexuses to Pixels, Google has released phones every year since 2010, and since 2011 they have been announced in September, October or November. The Pixel 3 XL is not that phone. In terms of performance, the latest 10nm chipset on the Pixel 3 is certainly a greater improvement compared to the one that powers the last year's Pixel 2. Besides, the Pixel 3 will measure 145.6x68.2x7.9mm and weighs 148 grams, whereas the Pixel 3 XL will measure 157.9x76.7x7.9mm and weight 184 grams. Here is a portrait photo clicked with it. Google has sold an estimated 7 million Pixels over the past two years, nearly imperceptible next to the 3.6 billion phones shipped during that time, according to the research firm International Data Corp. But more on that some other time, for now let's talk of Pixel 3 XL.

Be the first to get your hands on Google's newest phone, because the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are available to pre-order now at the Google Store! These were the flagship phones with top-notch specs of that year.

The Pixel 3 looks to ship in three colours with a similar aluminium-glass design introduced with the original Pixel. May be it's the notch on the screen, which is extremely broad. The design, in all other ways, is identical. The lower part of the glass had a matte finish. It will not come to be available in Pink colour variants. The density of the Pixel is said to be around 443 ppi with Always on display.

Although there's very little information on the megapixel count and sensor of the rear cameras, renders show that the front of the phones will feature dual cameras. There is a fingerprint sensor on the back, which is fast. Google will definitely throw in some new camera features made possible by software as well.

"They come at the intersection of AI, software and hardware working together".

One of the key improvements that I find in the Pixel 3 XL compared to Pixel 3 XL is the screen. Furthermore, the Pixel 3 comes with an IP68 rating while the predecessor had an IP67 rating for water and dust resistant protection. Stock Android 9.0 Pie straight out of the box, the same Android Pie that Pixel 2 users are using today, including new navigation, gestures, quick settings panel and more.

Google has so far only teased the device but a number of clues, rumours and leaks suggest Pixel 3 is going bezel-less this year. The multi-tasking is through a swipe gesture, and so is getting into the app drawer.

What about people who don't care for tablets? Okay, it's worth repeating. The Pixel 3 looks to have a smarter camera that will be able to quickly recognise what is in front of it - a useful technology for things like business card scanning and identifying products. It runs a clean and versatile version of Android. The Pixel 3 will arrive in U.S. on October 18 via Verizon.
