While many details were leaked prior to the event, the tech titan still impressed with its announcements. The two-tone design remains, and the cameras and embossed Google logo haven't moved a millimetre.

Samsung's Galaxy S9+ is 6.2-inches, so a hair smaller. Samsung in a tweet said one can land a plane on the Pixel 3XL notch. While PC World joked that Elon Musk is building a submarine to save survivors from the bottom of the notch, Google claims it's helped create the bigger end-to-end screen taking up 82% of the front of the device. Also, the Google Camera in the new handsets presently accompany another UI.

Both phones have been made available for pre-order already. Pixel 3 starts at $799, while the Pixel 3 XL starts at $899. The storage options also stayed the same at 64GB or 128GB. The company says privacy is something it takes seriously. So it's unsurprising Google is continuing its campaign to dethrone Amazon Alexa.

As they did a year ago, Google used the tag "Made by Google" for the event to emphasise that these devices were not just regular Android devices made by other companies but ones that were a hundred per cent built on the Google philosophy and vision. And on Monday, Facebook announced the Portal, its own smart screen device specifically designed for video calls. Unlike a regular tablet, the Home Hub is optimised for voice recognition and can show different information based on the voice match it hears within a family of users. Which brings us to another user query, "can you disable the gesture navigation like the Pixel 2 or do you have to use it?" In other words, if you want to be future-proof in the power department, you'll want to upgrade to the Pixel 3 XL.

Google introduced its updates to its Pixel line of smartphones this week. With Google's new Live Albums feature, also available on Home Hub, you can "enjoy a constantly updating stream of photos of the people and pets you care about and skip blurry ones and duplicates", Bonner wrote. "Our approach to this is to make sure that we give users lots of control and transparency about all of the privacy considerations in their product usage". It has a density of 293 pixels-per-inch. It has a 293ppi screen, 8MP cameras front and rear, and powerful Intel processors. At the point when Google had revealed the most recent Android OS in August, one of the remarkable overhauls that released was Gesture Navigation. It also has two USB-C ports on either side and is just 7mm thick and weighs 1.6 lbs. Pixel 3 comes with dual front-firing speakers. The Pixel Stand will show you notifications, photos and the time.

To that end, the Pixel Slate can be easily attached to the Pixel Slate Keyboard (sold separately) and used with a digital stylus.

The keyboard will cost £189 and the pen will be another £79.

Round the back, it's much the same story. But one design choice many in the Android community dislike is the inclusion of such a large notch at the top of the display. The new version Echo Show starts at USA $229, while the least expensive Facebook Portal sells for U.S. $199.
