Google Pixel 3 First impressions

Google Home Hub

It would seem that the new Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL don't sport LED notification lights, a staple of almost all Android devices for nearly a decade, despite having more than enough real estate in that eyesore of a notch up front.

It works with Google's Assistant and hardware.

The price for the new Google Pixel 3 starts from Rs 71,000 for the entry level variant with 64GB ROM whereas the 128GB version of Pixel 3 costs Rs 80,000. They are set to be launched on November 1.

The Pixel 3 is priced from ¥95,000 and the Pixel 3 XL from ¥119,000. We'll add Australian details when we have them. One of those, like last year's Duplex, sees Google handling phone calls on your behalf.

The unveiling, which was held in NY for the first time, echoed Apple events with a clean, white aesthetic and touted celebrity collaborations, along with an emphasis on its smartphone cameras.

Google is also hiring photographer Annie Leibovitz to take pictures with the new Pixel in an effort to persuade consumers that its camera is superior. There's the regular 8-megapixel selfie camera that's now joined by a second wide-angle front camera. Both phones will be available for sale at Best Buy, Bell, Costco, Fido, Freedom, Koodo, Rogers, Telus, T-Booth, Videotron, Virgin Mobile, WirelessWave, Walmart, WoW Mobile in the coming weeks. To begin with, it leaves behind the textured hard plastics used in Acer's Chromebook Tab 10, with Google opting for a smooth metal instead. The latest photos of your kids are added to the album automatically.

There's no camera on the front of the screen - so you can't use it to video chat.

The Google Home Hub is created to sit unobtrusively in your living room, bedroom or kitchen and serve up visual aids to answer your questions. For now, enjoy a phone with a very nice camera that will hopefully call the electrician for you. Callers are warned that they are talking to a robot and that a transcript would be made.

Google also points out that you can sync your Chromecast with your Google Home device and turn your TV into a huge, gorgeous picture frame with Live Albums. At least if you have any strong feelings for or against notches and want a Google Pixel 3, you still have a choice. "It's mostly about convenience here".

Google Home Hub can display YouTube videos and step-by-step recipes.

Amazon shipped 21.5 million smart speakers, including those with displays, in the year ended June 30, compared with 18.3 million for Google, according to research firm Canalys.

Google is pushing the AI elements of its new phones. Google says the Pixel Visual Core chipset that handles imaging is back but we are not sure if this is the same or an upgraded one. It will also display images from your Google Photos account for your screensaver (so keep it clean, you), using a machine learning algorithm to only pick out the largest and sharpest images, or to collate all the photos that include a certain face or person. Many other phones already have similar hardware for security.

ORIGINAL STORY: Google has scheduled hardware events taking place across the globe today that are set to unveil a range of new hardware.

If you want to know more about something you're looking at, use Google Lens, built right into the Pixel 3 camera.

Where Google has made a hardware change is on the front camera, or cameras. As with modern Chromebooks, it will also run Android and Linux applications in a full desktop configuration. The $599 iteration of the Pixel Slate will have an Intel Celeron processor with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage.
