Google unveils Pixel 3 smartphone

It'll work just like Google's other smart speakers except you'll be able to see what Assistant is saying.

It's thanks to these smart additions that we're likely to have another absolute fantastic Pixel smartphone on our hands and hopefully one that isn't besieged with issues like last year's Pixel 2 XL.

The Pixel Slate is Google's first 2-in-1 tablet since the Pixel C, and the first one to run Chrome OS.

Shares of Alphabet barely moved on the release. Because Android highlights Google services, it's key to Google's business of selling ads through its search engine and other mobile apps. Google hasn't yet discussed prices for its Pixel phones.

Google says that it brought wireless charging back because the tech has finally gotten to a point where speeds are sufficient enough to make wireless a compelling alternative to traditional charging.

Expanding geographic distribution should provide a small boost to the Pixel line-up. In India, the Google Pixel 3 event will start at 8:10 pm.

Born in southern Alabama, Jared spends his working time selling phones and his spare time writing about them.

A new artificial intelligence tool sure to generate buzz among consumers also could be helpful. The software, launching in the United States only, answers phone calls, requests information about the nature of the call and shares it as text with the recipient.

Google shipped 2.53 million Pixel 2 and 2 XL devices through the nine months ended June 30, Strategy Analytics said. Like the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL before it, they're a refinement of the previous model with a little more horsepower and a few hardware upgrades here and there.

But, where the Pixel 3 may have gone thinner, the Galaxy S9 makes better use of its size.

The smartphone is backed by a 3430mAh battery with fast-charging support. (The iPad Pro doesn't even have a touchpad.) Pinch-zoom and two-finger scrolling were quick and responsive. Google Photos offers free unlimited backup for optimized versions of your videos and photos to everyone else, but Google allows users to back up and store the original, full-quality, versions of his or her photo library. The company just had its annual hardware unveiling, and all three of its new devices leaked repeatedly in the lead-up to the event. However, Google will ship each phone with a pair of Pixel Buds USB-C earphones which supports real-time translation, Google Assistant integration, and can even read out messages and compose replies.

This year, the event will be taking place in New York City on October 9 (today).

I honestly thought the Google Home Hub was going to be bigger.

"If you have a Google tattoo on you, then these are the phones for you", IDC analyst Ramon Llamas said of the Pixel's limited appeal so far. That's similar to Amazon's Echo Show and a new Facebook device called Portal. The interface looks like it'll make heavy use of Google cards and seeing as Google already knows everything about you, we reckon it has an edge on Amazon on this front.

Shares of speaker maker Sonos Inc were down 5.6 percent on Tuesday.
