Google Pixel Slate renders appear to reveal design, detachable keyboard and stylus

Google Pixel Slate renders appear to reveal design, detachable keyboard and stylus

There have been multiple instances where the upcoming Google Pixel 3 XL has leaked online.

The US technology firm teased last night there could be plenty of surprises and it could be worth tuning in. These new products should include a new Pixel phone, Pixel tablet, and among other things.

This year, Google is hosting events for the Pixel 3 in cities such as New York, London, Paris, Tokyo and Singapore, spokesman Kay Oberbeck said.

According to Google, it will turn on the livestream 20 minutes before the event kicks off and will keep it live throughout the show, which will likely last about 90 minutes. There have been a gamut of leaks thus far, which suggest that the new Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL will run the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, retain 4GB RAM, have a single camera and perhaps new camera hardware. Google has yet to actually confirm anything that will appear at the "Made by Google" event, but countless leaks over the past few months have given us a good idea of what to expect.




The new Pixel phones have similar form factors to the Pixel 2 phones, but the most significant change is the addition of a notch to the larger Pixel 3 XL, which will have a 6.5-inch display. And for that, Google is expected to release a wireless charger, reportedly called the Pixel Stand. The screen of the device is surrounded by thick bezels.

The Google Pixel 3 is undoubtedly one of the worst kept secrets in recent times. 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.

Analysts are also expecting Google to add higher resolution and more cameras to the Pixel, whose first two generations attracted rave reviews for its high-quality pictures. It is also expected to come with an upgraded front camera that can capture videos at 1080p, and 60 frames per second.

Google uses its flagship phones to show off the capability of its hardware understanding and software, but it has never come close to competing with the iPhone on sales. Part of the reason for the leaks was the massive hype behind the phone, and that tells us that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have been two of the most awaited phones this year.
