Verizon retains exclusive on Google's Pixel 3

In our hands-on preview of the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones, we covered numerous new features Google announced on stage during its big press event.

Google has quietly announced a new Chromecast today.

"Some of the stuff they are doing with software and artificial intelligence is certainly leading edge", he said.

Unveiled at Google I/O 2018, Google Duplex will be ready to roll out to Pixel users by the end of the year. They are set to be launched on November 1. Nevertheless, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are now official.

AI-phone: Screen Call is one of several AI-powered features Google is adding to its phones. It will automatically capture alternate shots when you take a picture so you can "fix" a picture if someone blinked or sneezed. The Galaxy Note 9 has a dual aperture camera and focuses on powerful hardware with capable software while Google focuses on processing its photos. We need more time with it in our test rooms to deliver a more definitive verdict. You will be able to switch cameras to take wide-angle selfies. They're not uncommon, with many modern handsets sporting one.

Unlike nearly any other phone on the market, Google has kept a single-lens camera on the back of the two Pixel phones. Just tap on a button for Google's voice assistant to ask the caller about the goal of the call. It will then provide a live transcript of caller's speech and show it on the Pixel's screen.

With a new data breach being reported nearly every day, security is an important feature. What we must say that it's a bit odd to see the Pixel 3 smartphones to come with 4GB RAM variant only. "It's mostly about convenience here". The display isn't just for reading your Google Mail or checking directions on Google Maps, but can also be used to watch videos on YouTube. Also, Google has added wireless charging this time around. Apple alone sold 388 million iPhones during the same period.

Tuesday's announcements come a day after Google disclosed a flaw that could have exposed personal information of up to 500,000 users of its Plus social network. Google declined to address that further Tuesday, though executives emphasized privacy and security throughout the event in NY. Gboard, the keyboard built into your Pixel 3, will recommend GIFs, stickers and more, to make your conversations fun and engaging. These phones are more expensive than last year's Pixels.

The Home Hub has a 7-inch touch screen, but you can interact with it entirely by voice. That's similar to Amazon's Echo Show and a new Facebook device called Portal. Google Home Hub unifies all the other smart home devices in your home - locks, cameras, thermostats, lights, etc - under "Home View", letting you control them all separately from a drop-down dashboard.

Again, Google is attacking its rivals on price. It will go on sale on October 22 in the markets like US, UK and Australia. The 3rd Gen Chromecast comes in two colors-Chalk and Charcoal-along with a new matte finish and minimal Google branding.

Continuing its push for Chrome OS, Google's new Pixel Slate is a tablet with a keyboard attachment that allows it to act like a notebook.

The idea of having the ability to run full versions of some of my favorite productivity apps instead of the mobile versions is quite appealing.
