Google goes global with 10 events for new Pixel phones

Google goes global with 10 events for new Pixel phones

The keynote event is set to take place in NY, where Google is expected to make a slew of announcements about its next smartphones, PixelBook tablet, new Chromecast, smart home assistant speaker and Pixel Buds 2. The Pixel 3 packaging was all legit, and both the device's feel and specs gave a clear impression that it wasn't a fake, not to mention lining up with all the recent leaks.

Google is gearing up to unveil a whole new line-up of products at its event in NY. As is the case with BoGo deals, however, you'll have to pay the full price of the second unit up front and it will be refunded to you over the 24-month period of the contract.

It appears the reports of the death of tablets are greatly exaggerated, considering Google is about to unveil a seemingly strong competitor to this particular market.

The leaked pictures of the Pixel 3 XL go in line with the rumours. While the Pixel 3 XL is so far rumoured to come with a display notch, the Pixel 3 could come with a traditional design that won't include a notch. The company is introducing a new "style match" feature that will scan something the camera is pointed at and help you buy it from internet retailers.

The event is taking place in NY, instead of San Francisco. Are any of you looking forward to the next batch of Google Pixel devices? Google will be jumping back in with the Pixel Slate, featuring a 3:2, stylus support and Chrome OS.

Regardless of what is announced, check in all day October 9 for news and hands-on for everything Google announces.

Rumours are rife that a Pixel 3 and larger Pixel 3 XL are inbound. Majority of these leaks came from a Russian guy who allegedly sold a bunch unreleased version of the device. Comparing the latest leaks of Pixel 3 XL with the retail boxing of its predecessor, there isn't any notable difference in the design.

Over the weekend, because Google is really bad at keeping anything a secret, the Pixel Slate was fully revealed.

The logo of Google is pictured during the Viva Tech start-up and technology summit in Paris, France, May 25, 2018.

Although there's very little information on the megapixel count and sensor of the rear cameras, renders show that the front of the phones will feature dual cameras. Both smartphones are likely to have 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/ A-GPS, and USB Type-C.
