Google Pixel 3 Event

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel Slate to new Chromecast: Here’s what to expect from the Google event tonight

The first Pixel devices hit 2.4 million shipments in the nine months ended June 30, 2017, the firm said. This event will see the company launch its flagship phones: Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

Google's fancy visual core processing for pictures makes a return, so you can expect the Pixel 3 to once again take photos to make all of your friends jealous. The new Pixel is expected to have a similar "notch" design to the iPhone XS and a new sand colour.

For a limited time, Verizon is offering a Buy One Get One free promo, so if a customer buys one Google Pixel 3, he or she gets a second 64 GB Pixel 3 on the house. Measuring 0.28-inches thin and weighing 1.6 pounds, the slate sits smack dab in the middle of the 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro (0.27 inches thick, 1.5 pounds) and the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 (0.33 inches thick, 1.7 pounds).

The Pixel 3 will be available October 18 and sell at prices starting at $799.

The Pixel 3 offers an IPX8 rating against water ingress, but the Galaxy S9 holds an IP68 rating against both water and dust.

For ports and slots, the Galaxy S9 just gets further ahead. Comprised of a full-sized keyboard and a bendable, magnetic back flap, the keyboard connects with a snap. It also has all the usual bells and whistles for a phone, including Bluetooth, USB Type-C and Wi-Fi etc.

The iPhone also features Google's search engine, but Google may be paying Apple as much as $9 billion annually for that privilege, based on the estimates of Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall.

Everything is stepped up on the Galaxy S9. It also supports Mobile HDR Premium content.

Google+ to shut down after security bug
Google Plus was also very user friendly, allowing people to share announcements with friends very easily. Even with the data patched, Google has advised they will be shutting down Google+ for consumers.

Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL come pre-installed with Android 9 Pie and are powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor. The Galaxy S9 will likely be getting the new operating system next year.

There is still a single rear camera on both phones. There's 4GB of RAM and it comes with 64GB or 128GB of storage.

The Galaxy S9 has a 3,000mAh battery, which is slightly larger than the Pixel 3's 2,915mAh battery. And, wireless charging is an option on both phones. Google has managed to add portrait mode using AI, and it does a brilliant job compared to other smartphones with dual camera setups. Third-party manufacturers like Lenovo and JBL already make their own versions, complete with integrated camera for video calls. The front-facing Duo Cam provides an extra wide field of view with exceptional low light performance. The renders, live images and even hands-on videos are out for these. Now the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL are here to claim the title. Google says this is so as to save battery power. Yet, from the leaked renders that we have come across, we are unlikely to see thin bezels along the top and bottom. It also has dedicated 8MP front and rear-facing cameras.

"The number one thing is that we didn't want it to be compromised when being used as a tablet", Vokoun said.

Meanwhile, Pixel 3 XL is priced at £869 for 64GB of memory and climbs to a whopping £969 for 128GB.

Then we bring it all home with the pricing: starting at $599 + $199 for the keyboard, this is not a device for everyone.

We even had internal codenames. It wouldn't be worth the $80 Google's charging for the Pixel Stand, but at the right price it could still be a perfectly satisfactory accessory. On Tuesday, CEO Sundar Pichai did not make an appearance at his company's event.

In just a few hours' time Google will lift the official curtains on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones, alongside a whole suite of other gadgets. Unless the camera tops every other phone now on the market, it'll be a tough sell.
