Google Pixel XL 3 and Pixel 3 | Google products | Smart phones

Pixel Slate

Google announced its brand new swanky smartphones, the Pixel XL 3 and the Pixel 3 at its annual event. With a better hold on the body, the smartphones came with a better camera with OIS (optical image stabilization) along with previous features of the camera, which again was a big addition to the smartphones. And they'll shipping with a new mobile security chip-the same kind of chip that Google uses to protect the information flowing through its data centers. Better yet, a built-in 3.5mm headphone jack brings legacy headphone use back to the Pixel line-up, meaning you won't have to worry about picking up a bluetooth headset. That's the case with these new phones.

The US$1.1 billion HTC deal, which was announced in September a year ago and officially closed in January 2018, saw more than 2,000 HTC engineers moving to Google.

Apart from this, the two high-end flagships released by Google itself came out in October 2017 with the latest Android OS, Android 8.0 "Oreo", which is upgradable to Android P. Make no mistake, this isn't a simple budget use tablet, with these prices Google is coming for the neck of Microsoft and its Surface line.

Portrait mode has been improved so you can edit the depth of field after the fact (like you can in the iPhone XS), but you can also make colors pop by muting other colors, or change the focal subject of the photo. With Google's new Live Albums feature, also available on Home Hub, you can "enjoy a constantly updating stream of photos of the people and pets you care about and skip blurry ones and duplicates", Bonner wrote. These features make the Google Pixel stand out and be extraordinary. But it lacks a zoom lens on either side, something available on some iPhones and Samsung phones. While PC World joked that Elon Musk is building a submarine to save survivors from the bottom of the notch, Google claims it's helped create the bigger end-to-end screen taking up 82% of the front of the device. Furthermore, the email is said to show a large numeric three transitioning from Black and White to Mint colours.

Bloomberg signals 2020 run by registering again as a Democrat
Two years ago at the Democratic Convention, I warned of those threats. "So if you ran, yeah, you'd have to run as a Democrat". Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has re-registered as a Democrat just 27 days before the 2018 midterm elections.

The first users to get this feature will be Pixel users in the U.S. as announced by Brian Rakowski, VP of product management, at the Pixel Event ― a release that Google is calling, "experimental". The smaller Pixel 3 has a bezel straight across the top, but its two front-facing cameras are left-justified. Both phones are announced to have very similar hardware, other than the screen size and battery.

Google is featuring its Google Assistance service on Pixel 3 series. The phones also boast of awesome display.

Unlike its competitors, Google said its Home Hub, priced at $149, does not have a video conferencing camera. Pixel 3 starts at $799, while the Pixel 3 XL starts at $899.

"We've realized that if we wanted to push the envelope on innovation, we really needed to have a focused hardware effort", Rick Osterloh, Google's SVP of hardware, told CNN Business during an early look at the new products.
