Here’s everything Google revealed at its Pixel 3 event

Hollis Johnson

But just what are these devices we've seemingly known everything about for the last couple of months?

So, should you buy a Google Pixel Slate in the face of an iPad Pro?

Meanwhile, the Google Pixel 2 XL (64GB) will continue to be sold at Rs 45,499. There's also a prominent "chin" at the bottom of the phone.

Verizon touted the camera's functionality, saying that thanks to new AI functionality, it can select the best shot from motion photos.

But what about this years?

The Slate is available in the United States, the U.K. and Canada.

As you may have gathered, there are two Pixel 3 devices launching this year.

There's 128GB of storage and a fingerprint scanner on the back of both devices. This time around we see a full edge-to-edge iPhone X-style screen on the Pixel 3 XL, while the Pixel 2 XL's rounded edge screen makes its way over to the Pixel 3. The top part of the accessory covers the back of the Pixel Slate and it can be folded so that the device can be used as a laptop.

Aside from that, and the obvious size differences, you won't find a lot of disparity between the two devices' aesthetics. This oft-leaked phone comes with wireless charging and the addition of a wide-angle front-facing camera. There's 4GB of RAM and it comes with 64GB or 128GB of storage. There's also a USB Type-C port on one of its sides. You know the drill.

Like the iPhone Xs, the larger of the two phones has a notch at the top of the 6.3-inch display to increase the screen-to-body ratio as much as possible. Since the mute button turns off both the camera and microphone, that's not an option unless you want your Echo devices to ignore your voice commands as well.

This marks the third consecutive year for the exclusive partnership, although the Pixel 3 can also be purchased unlocked in the Google store for $799 for the 65 GB version, with the Pixel 3 XL costing $899, according to The Verge.

The best new camera feature, however, is Night Sight.

The Google Home smartphone app has also been redesigned so that it displays the same Home View dashboard, allowing you to control your smart devices even when you aren't at home. It's the first time Google has embraced the format, which Apple adopted a year ago with its ballyhooed iPhone X. Other tweaks to Chrome OS includes a customized app launcher with Google's integrated machine learning technology. Google said it was rolling this feature out on a city-by-city basis, but for those who want to use Duplex right away, it's now capable of screening calls for you and dictating them to your phone screen so you don't have to pick up if you don't want to. Not bad, if not a tad worrying. It has a taller 18:9 screen ratio, meaning smaller bezels and more display in the same footprint.

Google just announced this feature alongside the new Google Home Hub, a "smart display" like the Lenovo Smart Display. Speaking of the rear, the Pixel Slate is a solid piece of metal with the G logo in the corner. The device's physical qualities and exterior also scream "Google-made" with a mixture of white plastic and fabric covering the outside. The Pixel 3 has a 2,915mAh battery, while the XL's is 3,430mAh; both support wireless charging. Unfortunately, only time can tell on that.

Google Pixel 3L specifications There is not much difference in the specifications between the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3L.
