It is priced at a pretty reasonable $149.

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). Like the Google Assistant's little pauses, and "umm" and "aha" sounds.

Though it too was widely rumored, the Google Home Hub is the standout of the event so far. The device includes double front-facing speakers, supposed to output really good sound.

In just two short years Google has produced what's arguably the best smartphone camera on the market - and it's done it by using one camera, not two as is the case with its competitors.

The company also revealed a tablet computer called the Pixel Slate at the event, though it doesn't appear to be "slated" for launch in Australia. It runs Chrome OS on a device with a 12.3-inch display.

Google has been somewhat restrained in its distribution and marketing the Pixel phone, Llamas said, because it doesn't want to alienate Samsung and hundreds of other device makers who feature Android in their own phones.

The introduction of a $79 Pixel Stand has excited the observers. They also include an "accessory connector for Pixel Slate Keyboard". A separate stylus will also be available for $99. An 8th Gen Core m3 and 8/64 GB is $799, a Core i5 and 8/128 GB is $999, and a Core i7 and 16/256 GB is a whopping $1,599.

All of the products mentioned above with exception to the Pixel Slate can now be pre-ordered from the Google Store.

Both the devices are available in 64GB and 128GB onboard storage options and Google is also promising unlimited online storage for photographs and videos until January 31, 2022.

Like previous versions, the new Chromecast is $35. It's still a $35 dongle.

Also announced at the event in NY, the new Google Home Hub smart speaker responds to voice commands like other smart home devices but also features a display from which users can access news and weather information visually, as well as watch YouTube videos, use Google Maps and control other smart home devices.

Google claims that its AI-enabled camera modes will make the photography experience even better. However, it's not clear if it'll be limited to Pixel 3 or pushed to all Pixel phones.

In terms of ergonomics, both the devices feel more compact, in fact, nearly the same as the 2017 editions.

The Pixel 3 has an FHD+ flexible OLED display at 443ppi, whereas the larger one sports a QHD+ OLED display (with a notch) at 523ppi. Lots of devices that've abandoned the headphone jack were released over the past couple of years with no reasonable wired alternative. However, both the phones are rated now at IP68 versus the IP67 of the Pixel 2. The new feature lets Google Assitant answer your incoming calls, upon which it politely ask the intention of the caller. 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. Google Pixel 3 users will be the first ones to test the experimental feature.

The experience with the camera is the highlight of the new Pixel 3 phones, while Google introduces numerous artificial intelligence (AI) functions into the new camera application.
