Highlights: Google unveils Pixel 3, 3 XL, Home Hub, Pixel Slate at #MadeByGoogle event

Author at TechGenyz Google
Google Pixel 3

Google’s #MadeByGoogle event today has been, undoubtedly, the most interesting and exciting event of the whole years with devices like Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3XL Google Home Hub, Pixel Slate Tablet and wireless charger being unveiled today at the grand New York event. All the devices have integrated Google Assistant which makes your experience super easy and smart.

Pixel 3

The Pixel 3 and 3XL released today, have been anticipated with a lot of expectancies and we hope they stand on it. Both the phones feature bigger displays of 5.5-inch (Pixel 3) and 6.3-inch (3XL) respectively, come with OLED screens running edge-to-edge. Like their predecessors, Pixel 3 and 3XL have front-facing audio speakers with a promised 40% louder sound experience. They are devised with a fingerprint scanner and an added 10W wireless charging feature makes the list.

The US people will get an additional benefit of six months of free YouTube music. Both the smartphones are powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Soc processor, runs on Android 9 Pie with a 2915mAh battery. The flagship device will be available in two variants of 64GB costing and 128 GB internal storage with a RAM of 4GB. They will be available in shades of Just Black, Clearly White and Not Pink and are open for pre-orders in the US with a release date of October 16 and will be available in 12 markets including India from November 1. Pixel 3 costs around $799 in the US.

Pixel 3 3 XLThe Pixel smartphones come with dual selfie camera setup, a combination of a standard and a wide-angle lens making it perfect for groupies. Pixel Visual Core AI is customized to correct possible distortion caused by the wide lens. Additionally, there is a Photobooth mode which continuously captures selfies when you smile or make faces. The back camera maintains a solo lens of 12MP but adds features like Top shot which shoots numerous HDR+ shots before and after the shutter is pressed and suggests superior shot if your intended shot isn’t the best of the lot. The Pixel 3 duo comes with a custom image processing chip called Pixel visual core for intensive photo processing.

The phones use highly computational photography technique for zooming called Super res Zoom, typically used in satellite imagery to compensate for the lack of optical zoom in most smartphone cameras. Google guarantees better low-light photographic experience in its Pixel 3 than any of its earlier releases. There is a new feature called Playground bringing in increased reality features into your camera plus a tie with Marvel that allows Iron Man or Hulk to feature in your videos. Google Lens is incorporated in the camera so that you can search for objects, texts, business cards, etc directly through the camera.

The Pixel 3 also comes with Gmail smart compose feature and a new Shush Mode that allows you not to answer the phone but get a message from whoever rung. When you turn the phone upside down, the phone will automatically go into silent mode.

Pixel Stand

A wireless charger for Pixel 3 which lets the Pixel phones stand in portrait or landscape mode, Pixel stand comes at $79 and is also up for pre-order. The charger is powered over USB-C and supports fast charging and is compatible with any Qi device. This is more than just a charging stand, as it automatically regulates phone’s UI and switches the phone to Do Not Disturb mode at night. Featuring a Sunrise mode, this wonderful device can bright up your room with warm colors helping you to welcome the day better.

Pixel Stand Wireless ChargerThe cover art of the music being played on the phone will be displayed on the phone’s lock screen. There is a digital photo frame mode associated with Google Photos and the device is compatible with Google’s Nest cameras. In short, it turns the smartphone into a Smart Home device with a screen and Google Assistant for any help required.

Pixel Slate

A new Google Chromebook tablet, featuring removable keyboard and first time integrated fingerprint sensor on the power button, makes Pixel Slate a compelling device this fall and certainly a threat to iPad Pro and Surface Pro. It is thin and light and comes with a 293 ppi display with a 12.3-inch screen and front-aligned speakers. Running on Chrome OS, unlike Pixel C which was built on Android, Pixel Slate has better reach due to its accommodating OS. Like the Pixel 3 smartphones, Pixel Slate also comes with a free YouTube TV subscription.

Google Pixel SlateThe device features 8MP camera both at the front and the rear side with standard portrait mode and an additional wide-angle lens. The Pixel keyboard connects at two spots and can even make an operating link even when disconnected. It has a pretty weird but stylish set of circular keycaps. You can enable multiple windows and activate a ‘do-not-disturb’ mode. There is also a Titan security chip for data protection. However, you will have to give your 3.5mm headphones jack a miss for there is no port for that. The Pixel Slate is priced at $599, but it is expected to go up to $1,599 for better-specced options. The keyboard comes at $199 and you can get a stylus, Pixelbook Pen for $99.

Google Home Hub

This Google-assistant powered smart display posing a serious threat to Amazon’s Echo Show to be released soon, can display weather, time, photos, calendar events, to-do list and serves as the best companion for Google’s Home speakers. Google hasn’t added cameras to the device unlike its competitors (Amazon Echo Show and Facebook Portal) citing privacy reasons. Hence, it doesn’t come with integration with Google Duo and no matter what the reason be, you’ll miss out on grand Video calling experience.

Google Home HubThe device has been designed intrinsically for bedrooms as it comes with the feature Ambient EQ with a dedicated sensor which fine-tunes the color and brightness of the screen according to the surrounding and turns off light at night. Home Hub has integrated Google’s voice recognition software through which it can provide a personalized experience for an individual user.

The Hub has a colossal library of recipes which makes it a perfect fit in the kitchen. Like the other launched products, Home Hub also comes with a six-month free YouTube TV subscription. Home Hub can be used as the best photo frames ever due to their association with Google Photos it keeps displaying an updated list of pictures from your account. Priced at a jaw-dropping $149, it is available for pre-orders starting today in four different shades: green, pink, dark grey and white and will hit the markets around October 22.
