The Pixel Phones:
As always, google announced its 3rd iteration of Pixel Phones with a normal and a little large screen size with new and improved cameras and hardware. The pixel Phone is considered to be the phone with the best camera in the market since its first iteration and it seems that it is going to hold the crown.
As most companies are attracted towards more cameras means better photos, but google has stayed with its iconic single primary camera and left the rest to the software. It introduced the feature called Top Shot in the camera which takes a series of photo while capturing photos and uses AI to suggest the best image. It also allows user to choose the best photo that s/he likes. The camera also has an AI enhanced night mode and AI enhanced optical zoom. Both the phone has two front facing cameras where one is a normal camera and another is a wide angle for bringing that team of yours to a single frame.
Google also introduce wireless charging in its new pixel phones as it replaced the metal back of its previous pixel phones with gorilla glass 5 with etched surface, which gives a matt finish to the surface.
The main difference between the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 Xl is the display size and the battery while rest of the hardware is same. All the devices come in three colors i.e. ‘Just Black’, ‘Clearly White’ and ‘Not Pink’. The Pixel 3 is said to start at $799 and the Pixel 3 XL at $899.
The Google home hub that google introduced in the event is a google home device with a screen and the software is said to be tweaked to provide a smooth and friendly interface. It will also work as a digital photo frame at standby mode which will cycle photos through the google drive or according to user choice.
The Pixel Slate is a tablet with chrome OS with keyboard addon feature. It seems to be competing with the apple iPad and is said to start at $599 and $199 premium for the keyboard.
All the devices are said to be available from the end of the year and pre-booking for the devices are on the go.
