Made by Google, the new Pixel 3 and other new products announced

Google Home Hub

Google have known all year that they were going to use a notch and have seen how well many other companies have implemented the hiding of the notch and instead Google opt to not just remove the notch but make that part of the display useless.

The Pixel 3 boasts an incredible camera, intelligent machine learning to cut down on busywork, and an even more useful Google assistant. Like previous years, Google has launched two versions of the new phone: the regular-size Pixel 3 and the larger Pixel 3 XL.

The new models retain the two-tone design of their predecessor but the backs of the phones are now made of glass to enable wireless charging. Now you will be able to get better-looking photos without relying on your camera flash. In Europe they will appear in early November. Google has sold an estimated 7 million Pixels over the past two years, nearly imperceptible next to the 3.6 billion phones shipped during that time, according to the research firm International Data Corp.

As per Android Central, new Pixel phones were rumoured to focus on gesture navigation, bar the centre "pill" and a back button, which only appears when necessary.

Is Google really giving up on Android? This is admirable as Android phones don't get the latest Android OS for months after each release. This is good news, given that the oversized bezel on the Pixel 2 was one of the handset's big disappointments. Software adds improvements elsewhere too.

The Pixel phones will not be directly affected by the move, but do make use of several of the firm's cloud-based technologies including Google Photos - an image storage service that was spun out from Google+ three years ago. The Pixel 3 will have a new chip, called Titan, to store keys to the most sensitive information, including those needed to unlock the phone and descramble stored data.

Except I'm thinking about it now, as the Pixel 3 prepares to go on sale next week in Singapore (with Singtel and Starhub). The sides of the phone are shiny aluminum. "The combination of Pixel Slate and G-Type creates a new benchmark for 2-in-1 devices and we're confident it will change the way consumers and enterprise users view tablets as productivity devices", said Nicholas Smith, Co- CEO and Founder of Brydge. It will be available in 3 colors: Just Black, Clearly White, and Not Pink.

At its hardware event in NY on Tuesday, Google launched its 2018 flagship Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones.

Both phones run on the same chip as most premium smartphones of 2018.

The Pixel 3 sports a 5.5in, 2,160 x 1,080 OLED display. The display on last year's Pixel 2 XL phone was met with a variety of complaints including dullness, shadows at certain angles, and screen burn-in. The tech giant also introduced Pixel Slate, a 12.3-inch, two-in-one tablet that can multi-task with a stylus or a keyboard.

As always with any of its products, Google is making the Pixels available right away from the Google Store.

Now the Pixel 3 promises even better photos, but apart from an ugly notch on the XL model, it will look like any other smartphone to the casual observer - yet it has a price tag which puts it at the luxury end of the market.
