Walmart also sold the new Chromecast before Google's Pixel 3 event

As a successor to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, the new Pixel 3 models are expected to run Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box and will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC. Google has sold an estimated 7 million Pixels over the past two years, nearly imperceptible next to the 3.6 billion phones shipped during that time, according to the research firm International Data Corp. Rumours have, however, additionally suggested the existence of a Mint coloured Pixel 3 variant.

The latest Pixel phones are likely to attract the most attention, even though the first two generations have so far barely made a dent in the market. The headline item will be Google's Pixel 3 smartphone, and we're also expecting a new Chrome OS tablet-the Pixel Slate-and Google hardware to match its Google Assistant smart display software, the "Google Home Hub".

Google has launched its brand new smartphone at an event that was held in NY along with other cities like Tokyo, London, Paris, and Singapore.

The cover picture shows the Google Pixel C. Other specs of Pixel 3 XL are going to be almost identical to those of the Pixel 3, like previous years. To add a little more to the pile of info we already have, below is a full, high-quality review of the Pixel 3 XL via Russian tech review page Rozetked. However, the company also launched a slew of devices at the event, including Pixel Slate.

You get a choice of 64GB or 128GB of internal storage depending on your needs or budget.

Google has designed two versions of its smartphone once again, with the exact same specs on the inside and the physical size being the only difference - the standard Pixel 3 has a 5.5-inch display while the Pixel 3 XL has a 6.3-inch display.

For imaging, the Pixel Slate features 8-megapixel cameras at the rear and fascia. There could be features such as a dedicated Portrait mode and some selfie-focused improvements. A commercial also recently revealed a "groupie selfies" feature. The price is steeper now: The Pixel 3 starts at $799 and the XL starts at $899, at least it is not a $1000 phone I guess.

The next-generation Chromecast isn't much of a upgrade except for Bluetooth support and better support for 5GHz Wi-Fi, but it could be bundled with the Home Mini smart speaker as a "Smart TV Kit", according to some sources.
