Pixel 3 launch: Google to unveil iPhone challenger and smart home hub

Google's October gig saw the tech major unveil the much-anticipated Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, along with a few other products, at its "Made by Google" hardware event in NY on Tuesday. As far as the design, the Pixel 3 XL offers a large 6.3-inch display with a notch, while the Pixel 3 keeps things more traditional with its heavy bordered 5.5-inch display.

Google launched its line of high-end phones two years ago to better compete against Apple, Samsung and other device makers. This is the display version of the Home Speaker with a 7-inch display that can also be used to watch YouTube videos and can practically handle all kinds of home-based activities that you want your Google Assistant to do. In the camera department, both the Pixel 3 devices share the same set of sensors. It comes in three colors including a new one called "Sand" and the phones will ship with USB-C headphones in the box.

Singtel said the Pixel 3 will come in 64GB while the Pixel 3 XL will come in capacities of 64GB and 128GB. Google Pixel 3 is smaller when compared to Pixel 3 XL.

It works with Google Home, so you can control it with voice commands such as "Hey Google, play Cobra Kai from YouTube" or "Hey Google, play The Crown on Netflix" (as long as you have a Netflix subscription).

Priced at S$119, the Pixel Stand is meant to turn the Pixel 3 into a visual and audio AI assistant. There is also an optional backlit keyboard accessory, along with a stylus. The Pixel 3 XL, on the other hand, starts at ₹83,000 ($1,120) for the 64GB variant, and goes up to a mind-blowing ₹92,000 ($1,242) for the 128GB storage variant. Buyers across the European Union can expect the same pricing structure for the Pixel 3 phones, assuming Boulanger posted accurate information. Both devices can be connected to the Slate via Bluetooth.

Google's hardware announcements come just one day after the tech giant attracted criticism for revealing it had failed to disclose a security vulnerability that exposed the personal details of as many as 500,000 users of its social network, Google+. Because of that, the focus of the Pixel 3 reveal was on the new features primarily, specifically those related to the camera.

Rather than setting your phone to do not disturb mode, you can flip your phone upside down so that the screen is facing down instead, muting everything instantly and re-enabling your phone again when you pick it up.
