Google’s Live Albums Can Automatically Share Your Best Photos

Pixel 3 XL hands

Google's major event was today and there was a lot to talk about, but the most exciting thing is Google's new smartphone duo. The firm estimates that Google will grab half the market by 2025 with an overall installed base of 150 million units. Google has now announced that Duplex will launch in the USA before the end of the year, initially allowing Pixel users to make reservations through Google Assistant. When your phone rings, you'll be able to summon Google Assistant with the tap of a button and have Duplex ask callers their name and objective. When you do, you're basically just getting a phone as if it were purchased from the Google Store, but it comes ready to rock with your Project Fi account if you have one already. Unlike those speakers, the Hub has a display to show you useful information.

"If you have a Google tattoo on you, then these are the phones for you", IDC analyst Ramon Llamas said of the Pixel's limited appeal so far. It also added some custom software trick you don't have on other Assistant smart displays. There's also a new "Home View" UI that gives a quick overview of your smart home hardware.

On the software front, the Pixel 3 comes with the latest Android 9 Pie with Google Lens integration. This can be accessed with a swipe down from the top of screen and brings up a dashboard that maps out your entire smart home, giving you a visual overview of all your connected devices. The updated model will work with devices running Android, iOS, macOS, Windows and ChromeOS. There is an optional keyboard case for the Slate, but it costs extra.

There's also dual front-facing speakers, which teamed with Google's algorithms, should make for richer, crisper audio.

Florida declares state of emergency in 26 counties as Hurricane Michael approaches
But it rapidly intensified, and its top winds clocked in at 60 miles per hour (95 kph) by late Sunday evening. The eye is expected to move inland over the Florida panhandle or Florida Big Bend area on Wednesday.


The tablet has been rumoured to come with an 8th-generation Intel Core i7 processor and up to 16GB of RAM. Storage is 32, 64, 128, or 256GB. It's a secret weapon of sorts in a fight that up until now has essentially been no-contest as PCMag sees it: The Apple iPad is simply the best midrange tablet for most people.

The following Pixel 3 plans are the most affordable with at least 10GB of data per month. There were rumors of a secret third phone, but of course, that was nonsense. A demo of the feature showed it to be Google's new experimental technology, which lets an AI-powered bot make phone calls on your behalf. You will be able to switch cameras to take wide-angle selfies. And you can now get to know them better by watching this playlist of product promo videos by Google. The Pixel 3 XL, on the other hand, starts at ₹83,000 ($1,120) for the 64GB variant, and goes up to a mind-blowing ₹92,000 ($1,242) for the 128GB storage variant.

At the front, we have that larger 6.3in display which, like most of 2018's flagship phones, has a rather unsightly notch eating away at it from the top edge.

The 2160 x 1080 OLED panel has HDR support, and the battery clocks in at 2,915mAh. The new Pixel phones are also expected to follow the trend of expanding the phone screen almost to the edges of the device.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro images leaked before October 16 launch
You all know that Huawei has its own processor, therefore, the latest processor which this smartphone is having is the Kirin 980. However, it's worth noting that while Huawei has an official online shop on Jumia Kenya, I didn't see any Honor phones in there.


Instead, Google fans will have to wait until the company's showcase at 4PM BST to see if the Pixel Slate is unveiled.

Depending on how you look at it, you can say the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have not really changed in terms of overall design but there are actually some big changes. These phones are more expensive than last year's Pixels.

Pricing is set at $799 for the Pixel 3 and $899 for the Pixel 3 XL.
