The Google Home Hub is a smart speaker with tablet interface

Pixel Slate

With the Google Pixel Slate, unveiled on Tuesday, we finally know how Google is planning to light a fire under the now quite boring non-iOS tablet market.

But what about this years?

On the phone side of things, Google has also introduced a "Flip to Shh" functionality that mutes your phone and notifications when you flip it over on a table.

However, it wasn't clear if these refer to different sizes, designs, or if there will be a version with 4G and one with just Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Following Benintendi's hit, the Red Sox extended the lead on a single to left by Steve Pearce off Chad Green . Luke Voit walked on four pitches, and Kimbrel hit Neil Walker on a leg with his next pitch, forcing in a run.


Other new camera features include a Photobooth mode (AI that snaps photos when it detects facial expressions), selective color mode, a Playground mode for playful photos (with stickers and captions), and super smooth video (with Motion Auto Focus and front-facing video stabilization). Pricing will start at $799 for the Pixel 3 and $899 for the Pixel 3 XL. The phone has a custom chip created to make photos look better, Google said. The event ended with a short film by director Terrence Malick, which, you guessed it, was shot on the new Pixel 3.

A rounded fingerprint sensor and a single camera sensor also sit on the back of both devices. There is no headphone jack again on either of these two devices. There's 4GB of RAM and it comes with 64GB or 128GB of storage. "I don't know why anyone would migrate or update from a Pixel 2 to a Pixel 3". That is, if you're interested in getting cozy with robots in the first place. Google is tossing in six months of YouTube premium when you buy a Home Hub so that you have plenty of content to watch. The company is bringing a similar experience to your phone with the redesigned Google Home app. While a welcome addition, it's really not something new and, as some long-time Android owners may remember, a feature that used to be part of some older Android phones.

The final addition to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL's arsenal is the introduction of the Pixel Stand.

The new phones include wireless charging - a first for Pixel devices - along with larger displays.

"We have taken the world's best smartphone camera and made it even better", said Google's hardware chief Rick Osterloh during the launch event at Spring Studios, echoing a shot across the bow at Cupertino, Calif. -based Apple, which recently launched its new iPhones, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max and the upcoming iPhone Xr.

The Pixel 3 XL will come with a 6.3-inch (1440x2880 pixels) QHD+ display. Pixel Slate will go on sale in the USA and Canada later this year, Google said.

With the Pixel 3, Google has finally added Qi wireless charging. It also allows for better productivity, while still giving you access to Google's entire library of Android apps.

Plenty of details about the new smartphones have appeared online, although Google has sought to poke fun at the rumours.
