Unboxing Every Google Pixel 3 XL + Pixel 3

Unboxing Every Google Pixel 3 XL + Pixel 3

When you place the new Pixel 3 phone on it, the phone's entire UI reorients, effectively turning Pixel 3 into a Google Assistant-enabled smart speaker.

But just what are these devices we've seemingly known everything about for the last couple of months?

AI, embodied in Google's talking Assistant, also promises to be more of a sidekick in the Pixel 3.

After far too many leaks, Google's new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are finally official. The new Pixel is expected to have a similar "notch" design to the iPhone XS and a new sand colour.

But what about this years? The Pixel 3 starts shooting a second before you press the button and a second after - looking for the moments where everyone has their eyes open and facing the camera. The phones will be available on October 18th, with a starting price of $799. There is no headphone jack again on either of these two devices. Executives even lined up photos taken with Apple's new iPhone XS with ones shot on the Pixel 3 to bolster Google's claims that it's got the best phone camera on the market. With that ownership, Google is able to reliably push out monthly security updates directly to all Pixel devices, regardless of wireless carrier.

Aside from that, and the obvious size differences, you won't find a lot of disparity between the two devices' aesthetics. There's 4GB of RAM and it comes with 64GB or 128GB of storage.

However, it wasn't clear if these refer to different sizes, designs, or if there will be a version with 4G and one with just Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. You know the drill.

He is believed to be on around £110,000 a week with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan on £170,000. Ramsey also provided a superb through ball to set up Aubameyang's second - and Arsenal's fifth.

Google Pixel 3 comes packing a 5.5-inch display while the Pixel 3 XL touts a 6.3-inch panel. Will stock android and some sophisticated camera software make the Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 worth the price tag. TopShot is a mode that automatically snaps photos right before and right after the moment you hit the shutter, then recommends the best shot - meaning you don't miss a crucial moment. It has been created to blend in with your home - the screen automatically adjusts to the level and type of light in the room. Google is tossing in six months of YouTube premium when you buy a Home Hub so that you have plenty of content to watch. On many Android phones and tablets, you can swipe up or down from the home screen to reveal all of your apps. Not bad, if not a tad worrying.

It allows the Pixel phones to cover much of the functionality of the Home Hub. While a welcome addition, it's really not something new and, as some long-time Android owners may remember, a feature that used to be part of some older Android phones.

The new generation Pixel smartphone supports wireless charging but you would need to purchase a separately sold wireless charger. Also, the album cover of the now playing track will be displayed on the screen.

"The magic of this phone is on the inside", said Google senior vice president for hardware Rick Osterloh, in an interview.

So, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are clearly simply refinements of what's come before. Unfortunately, only time can tell on that.

Rick Osterloh, who runs Google's hardware efforts and introduced the new smartphone models, is banking on the latest Pixels to make a dent in the market.
