The Google Pixel 3 Has No Notch, But Google Wanted One

The Google Pixel 3 Has No Notch, But Google Wanted One

Google's new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will come with a new accessory in the box: a pair of wired Pixel Bud-style earbuds. However, the frosted design of the part that is metal on the Pixel 2 duo fools you into thinking it isn't glass.

But is there really a demand for smaller handsets when everyone is going big? With prices starting from $799, the Pixel 3 phones is offered in 3 colours - Just Black, Clearly White and Not Pink. It's no secret that no one deploys AI to its best use in the camera than Google and that looks to be the case with the Pixel 3 as well.

From its magnetically attached keyboard to its stylus and, of course, its premium pricing, the Pixel Slate is a thinly veiled attack at Microsoft's Surface line, often hailed as the cream of the crop when it comes to productivity in a flexible form factor. Users can then decide whether to pick up, respond by tapping a quick reply, or mark the call as spam and dismiss.

Where the two phones differ comes down mostly to the size of the screen and battery.

The Pixel 3 is priced from 95,000 yen and the Pixel 3 XL from 119,000 yen. Gboard, the keyboard built into your Pixel 3, will recommend GIFs, stickers and more, to make your conversations fun and engaging. Additionally, many people might frown upon the fact that the device doesn't have an SD card slot, a headphone jack, or any LTE support.

Google's unnervingly human-like voice system, Duplex, is gaining new responsibilities, the tech giant announced at the launch event for its Pixel 3 smartphone today.

The hardware is exactly what you'd expect. We've been impressed with all the Snapdragon 845 devices we've seen in 2018, but we're acutely aware that the next generation of hardware is just around the corner. The new version Echo Show starts at $229, while the least expensive Facebook Portal sells for $199.

The Pixel Stand, a wireless charger, costs $109.

Plenty of details about the new smartphones have appeared online, although Google has sought to poke fun at the rumours.

The Pixel 3 will be available October 18 and sell at prices starting at $799. The Pixel Slate is Google's attempt at proving to the prosumer world that Chrome OS, too, can hold its own against Windows 10, all while offering the kind of security that Windows may never have due to its open nature. AR Stickers have become Playground and both Avengers and Childish Gambino will be available and will even interact with you.

Another addition is the ability to change the "aperture" in portrait shots. The dual front cameras are just for wide-angle selfies, but Google has a ton of camera software tricks. This will let you pinch zoom to a wider view, so you can get everything into the frame. This feature will initially be available later this year in New York, Atlanta, Phoenix and the San Francisco Bay Area to help people book restaurant reservations and will roll out to other United States cities in the future. "One of the most exciting stories we have this year is how much machine learning and AI we put into the product", Seang Chau, vice president of Pixel software, told Fast Company.
