Google Pixel Slate Release Date, Price & Specs

Pixel 3 XL hands

The Pixel 3 XL will officially be the most expensive Android phone sold in the country. Alphabet Inc.'s Google is banking on the latest versions, viewed as rivals to premium smartphones from Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co., to generate meaningful sales - something that has eluded Google's phones, despite positive user reviews. It still combines the standard Chrome OS flavor of Linux with emulated Android applications, but the keyboard is separate and the interface is specifically created to be a tablet, not a laptop or phone pretending to be a tablet, as Google puts it. These phones are more expensive than last year's Pixels. And while that means the Pixel 3 works with the most any of the third-party wireless chargers already out there, the phone will actually go into a special mode while it's charging from the Pixel Stand.

With 3430mAh and 2915mAh batteries on the Google Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 respectively, the talk-time and standby hours are definitely more. So if you were thinking about picking up a Home Hub, here's one more reason to.

Impact: Downloading the Google Camera for your smartphone could break a few things, seeing as it isn't made specifically for that smartphone.

Google's demo also didn't include any out-loud sample of how calls between your phone's Google Assistant voice and a robo-caller's automated voice might sound. Users will be able to ask the device to pull up and display videos, visual weather information, and traffic data. It has dual front-facing speakers, but there's no headphone jack.

Well, we just dug out the dusty box, plugged it in, updated it, and waited to see how much had changed.

Despite Amazon's dominance in the category, analysts are bullish on Google's long-term prospects for smart speakers. The firm estimates that Google will grab half the market by 2025 with an overall installed base of 150 million units.

Broad carrier availability: The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is available on all United States wireless carriers and various retailers.

Previous leaks said the Pixel 3 would be available for preorder right after Google's event on Tuesday in all the countries where Google is holding local events, including the US, UK, and France, but also in other worldwide markets.

The phones mirror an industry trend toward lusher, bigger screens and add twists on the camera for better pictures. It comes in black or white, with green and pink options available exclusively on Google's online store.

The Pixel Slate is a strong first showing by Google, but it may need a little more than what it now has to offer in order to make any kind of dent in the Surface line's impressive hold of the 2-in-1 segment.

The new large-sized displays and other features of the smartphones are definitely the aspects that will draw maximum attention. It's the first time Google has embraced the format, which Apple adopted previous year with its ballyhooed iPhone X. The phones also offer wireless charging.

How much is the Pixel Slate going to cost?

The keyboard will be an additional £189/$199 and the pen will be £79/$99. It features all the same music-playing and smart home connectivity of the regular Google Home, including the ability to set routines that can be triggered with a keyword or phrase, but also adds full support for video on YouTube.
