DisplayMate says Pixel 3 XL OLED display earns 'highest A+ rating'

DisplayMate says Pixel 3 XL OLED display earns 'highest A+ rating'

The event is taking place in NY, instead of San Francisco. Google will livestream the event through its YouTube channel. The event will kick off at 11:00AM ET, which corresponds to 8:30PM IST. You can view the event live here on Twitter.

Despite the vast number of rumours that Google is planning the release a Pixel Watch at today's event, the company has spoken out to the contrary, saying that it has no plans to launch its own smartwatch this year, Tom's Guide reports. The second-gen Pixel phones came with new design along with improved software.

As to how good the Hub is, we'd have to wait when there are actual units to review. In fact, a mysteriously sourced shipment of the Pixel phones has ended up in the black markets of Ukraine and Hong Kong.

The accessory will wirelessly charge the flagship in addition to providing a host of new functionality.

Also included in the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are dual front-facing 8MP cameras. There are rumors that we may also see a 6GB RAM variant, but we will get more clarity only after the official announcement.

Google's fancy visual core processing for pictures makes a return, so you can expect the Pixel 3 to once again take photos to make all of your friends jealous. It has a 12.2MP sensor with 1.4 micron pixels and an f/1.8 aperture. If the Pixel 3 thinks it got a better shot than you, it'll pop up as a suggestion. The expected updates for the Pixel smartphone line-up are expected to be announced in a short while, at the event in NY.

The Pixel Slate tablet has a 6-million pixel display and was described as "a ideal device for play and work", by Trond Wuellner, Google's director of product management. Google launched its line of high-end phones two years ago to better compete against Apple, Samsung and other device makers.

The "night sight" feature will be present on the Pixel 3 but will also arrive on other Pixel devices, the firm claimed.

His confirmation came after Dr Christine Blasey Ford accused him of a historic sexual assault, and two other claims of misconduct. In confirming Judge Kavanaugh the Senate has confirmed a good man with an impeccable record of honoring the U.S.

The Pixel Slate will be available in four configurations, starting at the price of $599. When placed into the wireless charging stand, the Pixel's UI changes to become readable from a distance.

The earbuds are available for purchase now from the Google Store for just $45 but they do come in the box of a Pixel 3 phone so unless you want a spare pair or plan on breaking them you may not want to spend the funds on this just yet.

The Pixel 3 will be available October 18 and sell at prices starting at $799. There is talk about a Chrome OS powered tablet, called the Pixel Slate. The Pixel Slate comes with a 3:2 aspect ratio, 293 ppi display that can be detached from its keyboard cover when you want to use it as a tablet. It will most probably feature an ARM-based mobile processor or an ultra-low power CPU from Intel. On the storage front, the smartphone comes in either 64GB or 128GB capacities without a support for microSD card. Of course, these days Chrome OS runs Android apps as well, so in some ways, it's still an Android tablet, even though it isn't. The display has a resolution of 2960×1440, and it's also OLED.

We know, for example, that both phones will have just a single rear camera, bucking the trend for two or even three rear cameras.

The Home Hub is a distinctly Google device in virtually every respect.

There's no 3.5mm in or out, but the Home Hub has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and it works either as a Bluetooth speaker or as a "casting" target from Android phones. It may still miss out on 4K support and Amazon Prime.

Google just announced this feature alongside the new Google Home Hub, a "smart display" like the Lenovo Smart Display.
