This morning greeted us with some exciting news-Google announced at its hardware event that its new smartphone, the Pixel 3, will be coming to Singapore on 1 November 2018.

Poking fun at itself a bit, Google opened the event with a montage talking about how many details of the Pixel 3 phone and other devices leaked. With 3430mAh and 2915mAh batteries on the Google Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 respectively, the talk-time and standby hours are definitely more.

The two phones have a notched OLED display, the Pixel 3 sporting a smaller 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 2160 x 1080.

The Pixel 3 phones have larger displays than the Pixel 2 counterparts, which were launched past year.

The new Pixel 3 will also have a spam call-screening feature that can screen suspicious calls and transcribe the message to help you determine whether to block or respond to the call. Both the devices come with the same spec sheet which includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB storage. The Pixel 3 XL starts at $899, $50 more than the Pixel 2 XL's $849 price tag.

By changing the UI and encouraging users to treat it like a smart speaker, the Stand also solves a fundamental problem that other mat wireless chargers have-that you can't use the phone much while it's down on the table if you want it to charge.

A pull-down "dashboard" acts as the smart home center for the Home Hub, so you can manage the various devices in each room independently.

If youre interested, the Pixel Stand is available for pre-order today, it will cost you $79 / €79 / £69. HDFC bank debit and credit card users will also have an opportunity to avail of an additional discount of ₹5000 and can exchange your old phone for another at a discount of upto ₹4,000.

Some of the connectivity options on the Pixel Slate include two USB-C ports, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, keyboard connecting pins, Bluetooth v4.2, and more.

Instead of working with one telco to launch its latest Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones, the tech giant will be making the phones available via Singtel and StarHub from Nov 1. Both devices can be connected to the Slate via Bluetooth. The feature launches in the United States today, and it will come to other Pixel devices next month. Additionally you can purchase a keyboard for $ 199 and stylus for $ 99. The price has held steady at $35, and you'll still control the Chromecast exclusively with your computer or mobile device rather than a remote control.
