Google unveils Pixel 3 and Pixel XL

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel Slate to new Chromecast: Here’s what to expect from the Google event tonight

The Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3XL go on sale in the USA starting October 19 and will be available in more markets on November 1.

The bezels are fairly thin (for a tablet anyway), but still big enough for dual front-facing speakers and for resting your thumbs.

Also, unlike the limelight-craving Pixel 3 and 3 XL, which have been leaked all over the internet, there have not been any leaks of the Pixel Watch's design, suggesting there aren't any out there to leak. But, we'll have to wait and see. The Pixel 3 starts at $799, and the 3 XL is $899. The Pixel 3 phone has a 5.5-inch display and the Pixel 3 XL has a display size of 6.3 inches.

Further, the handsets are rumoured to come preloaded with a "Top Shot" feature that is found to "capture the ideal shot every time". No matter, we have all the official details and availability info now. Both phones have a single 12.2MP rear camera with 1.4um pixels, optical and electronic image stabilization, and an f/1.8 aperture.

Both Samsung and Google know how to make a great smartphone camera.

Google will be hosting its annual "Made by Google" event later today.

Yankees vs. Red Sox score
You can always, if you're inclined this way, look at these Yankees-Red Sox games through the well-smudged lens of history. In their seven matchups this season, the Astros averaged 4.9 runs per game and the Red Sox averaged 4.4 runs per game.

Shawn Michaels comeback: Match vs. Undertaker at Crown Jewel
From AJ Styles, to Daniel Bryan, Finn Balor, and Seth Rollins; the list is literally endless. WWE has confirmed Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels will return at their next pay-per-view.

Hurricane Michael strengthens to Category 2 and takes aim at north Florida
Michael is also predicted to be the strongest hurricane based on wind speed to hit continental United States landfall this year. Alexander Charnicharo fishes at the seafront in Havana as Hurricane Michael passes by western Cuba on October 8, 2018.

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. On top of those locations, Google is expected to concurrently unveil the next-generation Pixel devices at other media events across the world. The device's physical qualities and exterior also scream "Google-made" with a mixture of white plastic and fabric covering the outside.

One of the changes coming to this year's Pixel is the ability to wirelessly charge, thanks to the glass back.

Pixel phones should get wireless charging with a new Pixel Stand charger. The Pixel 3 64GB variant was listed at CAD 999 (roughly Rs. 56,900) and CAD 1,129 (roughly Rs. 64,300) for the 128GB model.

Google really wants Chrome OS to be capable on tablets, and the Pixel Slate is its fresh attempt. Think of this like a mini Google Home Hub, but with your Pixel 3. It is powered by 8th Gen Intel Core m3, i5 or i7 Processor, or Intel Celeron Processor and 8/16GB of RAM for your performance needs. There's 4GB of RAM and it comes with 64GB or 128GB of storage. The updated OS switches seamlessly between desktop and tablet modes, and offers a full compliment of Android apps via the Play Store. The display has a resolution of 2960×1440, and it's also OLED. On the front and rear are 8MP cameras. The device will give you "rich, visual" answers in response, and if you ask it to show you something - the example Google gives is cutting a pineapple - it can automatically pull up an appropriate YouTube video for you. And we have already seen Sony, Lenovo and LG launching their devices based on Google's platform, and this time around, we may see first-party offering in the form of Google Home Hub. It may still miss out on 4K support and Amazon Prime.

Google also rolled out a new device called Home Hub that couples a small display screen with an internet-connected speaker.
