Pixel Slate, new Chromecast, Google Home Hub expected

Google's Pixel 3 event begins at 11:00 AM ET on October 9th, so we'll soon see if they have any announcements left to surprise us. While the Pixel 3 XL is so far rumoured to come with a display notch, the Pixel 3 could come with a traditional design that won't include a notch.

Several have noted that this could mean Google will enable connectivity with wireless headphones, or a controller, akin to a Roku remote - a feature that has reportedly been requested by users for a while now.

Google has been all over the news due to their Pixel devices leak which exposed all the upcoming devices from the company.

The handset is up for pre-order on the carrier's website, though Google won't officially reveal it for some hours. The Google Pixel 3 XL comes with revamped Camera app where you can set three different focal lengths settings.

Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau , who has personnel input, reportedly had been attempting to broker Butler's return to the team. Glen Taylor and Micky Arison became involved in the trade talks and there was hope of a call to the league to finalize it.

There's still the question of how a retailer managed to start selling the Pixel 3 so early. We have a whole list of what we're expecting here.

Stay tuned for the live updates.

Speaking of colours, a separate leak, posted on GSM Arena, claims that Google will continue its slightly wacky naming convention. The main difference is that Google has full control on Pixel phones in terms of hardware and software. Like the Google Home speakers, the Home Hub will also come with Assistant and the ability to control other smart home devices. It's also lucky for me, because I wasn't invited to a launch event this year.

The new Pixel phones are expected to follow the trend of expanding the phone screen almost to the edges of the device. The "Google nocturne" model offered specifications such as an Intel Core i7-8500Y processor, 16 GB RAM, and a display resolution of 3000x2000. The new Pixel 3 will be competing with Apple iPhone XS and Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Pixel 2 XL is said to be one of the best camera phones in the world.
