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

Google has succeeded with lower-priced devices like smart speakers and home routers, but the phones have been a tougher sell.

Now, this device is unique compared to other displays, because it doesn't come with any cameras. You can still do video calls, but they'd be one-way video calls. Google isn't including a wireless charger in the box, but it does have one: the Pixel Stand. But it was a unusual call-out, since Google already puts cameras in your home through the Pixel phones and Nest Cam home-security cameras.

One of the features people love most about Google Photos is the automatic backup of pictures and videos. It also has soft rounded corners, and is created to sit on a range of surfaces, such as the kitchen counter or nightstand, according to Google.

Furthermore, Google has included the Google Camera app on the Pixel Slate, so the product can be used for photography too. Home Hub is the newest member of the Google Home family, joining Home, Home Mini, and Home Max.

Editor's Note: An earlier version of this feature incorrectly stated that Adobe Acrobat Reader was among the highlighted features for Google's Pixel Slate.

Google's free Android software operates most of the world's smartphones. Google Assistant has been deeply integrated to help users discover the applications they need and a "Family Link" feature offers parental and family controls to ensure that the gadget is easy to share with a group of users.

Google Home Hub measures 67mm (D) x 178.5 (W) x 118 (H) and weighs 480g.

GoogleHow does Google Home Hub work? While the Home Hub can't see you, it can certainly hear you with its 2-mic array. The docked phone can be controlled via voice commands, and can function as a smart photo frame when it's not in use. It can pull up photos and features your best shots with a new feature called Live albums. "Go ahead and say your name, and why you are calling". However, it did include Ambient EQ light sensor, which allows the screen to automatically adjust to match the lighting in the room. A fancy way of saying it'll dim the screen in the dark, then.

Daily briefing, being able to follow recipes, and learning how to dice onions via YouTube, for example, aren't exactly new features in the smart screen space. When you add in the three more hours of battery life according to Microsoft, it's just no longer a competition anymore, if the only things driving your decision making are the specs of each device. Titan, a form of security Google has developed for its data centres, is now also apparently found on the new Google phones.

Lastly, you can use Google Home Hub to watch YouTube videos - something you can't do on Amazon's Echo devices.

The messaging at Google's hardware event takes a different approach. It will also be available on Google's Project Fi network. You can get it in Chalk, Charcoal, Aqua, or Sand colours.

GoogleWhen will Google Home Hub be available? It is available to pre-order and will ship from 22 October. It'll be in stores from 22 October in the USA and UK.
