All the Pixel 3 Features Coming to the Pixel 2

Google Home Hub is all about simplifying the smart home experience

Just like its predecessors, Pixel 3 is touting the "world's best camera", with a Google official also bragging that the device could be world's most helpful phone. The new Pixel-branded phones will anchor a product event Tuesday in NY.

Google formally owns a chunk of HTC's smartphone division - 2,000 engineers and non-exclusive license for intellectual property - now but looks like it did not play any significant role in designing and building the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones.

The trio represent the latest update from Google's 2 and a half year old hardware division, which is finally building a single, cohesive Google device brand. The screen came with a 5-inch display, 1080 x 1920 resolution and AMOLED technology, making for a lovely display - although the Pixel 3 does trump it slightly in that regard now.

The new Google Hub Hub (from $ 149), among others, features a screen that displays responses to the user's voice commands while also allowing access to YouTube.

Google teased us by tweeting before the event that rumour-mongers and leakers didn't know everything, and it was true - Google unveiled several futuristic new software features (especially related to the camera) that we're mighty excited to try out over the next few days.

Because of the volume of complaints accompanied by issues activating the feature, we can expect to see an update easing the activation process.

As per Android Central, new Pixel phones were rumoured to focus on gesture navigation, bar the centre "pill" and a back button, which only appears when necessary.

Brett Kavanaugh to Hear First Arguments as a Supreme Court Justice
Kavanaugh also noted the first group of clerks he's hired as a justice are all women, a first in the history of the Supreme Court. In his speech at the ceremony, Kavanaugh said the emotional Senate confirmation process "tested" him, "but it did not change me".


Google said it would augment distribution by opening two temporary stores in popular neighborhoods of Chicago and NY on October 18 and putting up displays at USA tech retailer B8ta and Goop. The feature is set to arrive on the Pixel and Pixel 2 next month.

Here they are: the $US800 Google Pixel 3 and $US900 Pixel 3 XL.

The analysis of the photos is done on the Pixel 3, not in Google's cloud.

In the demo, Google compared a low-light photo from an iPhone XS with one from a Pixel 3, and as can be expected, the result was in Google's favor.

Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL retain much of the same formula that made the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL very popular amongst Android enthusiasts. It comes with a pair of 8-megapixel cameras - one in the rear to take pictures and one in the front optimized for video conferencing. The plethora of AI-based features makes it great as a camera both for social occasions and serious photography. Do you like Google's implementation or do you prefer the other way? You can choose to pick up or ignore the call. The main highlights of these devices are the camera features.

For photography enthusiasts, the Pixel 3 is undeniably the way to go.

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