Google will formerly announce its new range of hardware products during its live event tomorrow, 9 October, and that includes the Google Pixel Slate - codenamed Nocturne in previous rumours. Yes, that's right, rather than seeing more information regarding the third generation Pixel phone - and let's face it, is there anything else we really need to know thanks to all the leaks - we're seeing Google's newest Chrome OS tablet/laptop. Take a look below to know more about the about the products which Google will be launching tomorrow. The event will see several major launches including the Pixel 3, the Pixel 3 XL, the Pixel Mini and the Chrome OS tablet.

Instead of a thick hardware keyboard magnetically attached to the bottom edge of the device, as we saw with the Pixel C, this year Google seems to be putting on a cover with an integrated, attachable keyboard, which can be connected to the tablet via four pins. The shared pictures have revealed a lot about the upcoming tablet from Google.

Apart from the Pixel 3, Google will likely unveil new new models of existing devices, as well as a brand new smart device that will house Google Assistant.

Also, similar to Google Pixel C, this Pixel Slate Chromebook would also have a detachable keyboard. A single rear camera and twin front cameras are also a given, courtesy of the various leaks, but Google will undoubtedly have a story to tell about computational photography. In India, Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are expected to launch in the October second week.

There has been a ton of Pixel 3 and 3 XL use in the wild.

Along with the tablet design, the Pixel Slate is also said to be convertible, featuring a swiveling keyboard that's detachable too.

Carphone is also selling the Pixel 2 on contract for as little as £22.99 per month. The new Google Home Hub will come with a 7-inch screen with the speaker behind it, and it will compete directly with the newly launched Amazon Echo Show. Google has gotten a ton of flack for the introduction of the notch, mainly because the Pixel 3's notch is unusually larger when compared to other devices.

It's a tough battle between the three devices as to which has the most features - the Pixel Slate has a fingerprint scanner like the iPad Pro while the Surfaces have facial recognition. The updated Chromecast will sport an enhanced design on the outside, as well as improved WiFi and support for Bluetooth.

The Pixel Slate comes with Chrome OS and supports the Google Pixelbook Pen.
