Engadget gets hands-on with unreleased Pixel 3 XL

Share

Google's upcoming Pixel 3 series of smartphones might be one of the most-leaked devices in recent history.

The keynote event is set to take place in NY, where Google is expected to make a slew of announcements about its next smartphones, PixelBook tablet, new Chromecast, smart home assistant speaker and Pixel Buds 2. Mashable's Raymond Wong and Pete Pachal will be on site for the news, but it's pretty safe to say we know what's coming.

Meanwhile, UK pricing for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL recently appeared to leak through an alleged EE promotional leaflet. However, that doesn't mean you can't already buy the Pixel 3 in stores.

The Google invite to the October event. A new wireless charging dock called the Pixel Stand will also be launched side by side the new phone line-up which will support the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. The Google Pixel 3 XL comes with revamped Camera app where you can set three different focal lengths settings. This new Slate tablet by Pixel will go head-on against the new Apple iPad Pro, and it might also possibly come with a fingerprint sensor.

When is the Google Pixel 3 launch?

There have been few details about a new pair of Pixel Buds, Google's Bluetooth ear buds. We may even see a teaser of the Google Pixel Watch too.

The reviewed phone is a full-fledged Pixel 3 XL retail box, complete with everything you expect to see inside it. The Pixel 3 camera features several AI functions like Top Shot, Photobooth, Super res zoom, Subject tracking AF, and Wide angle selfies.

Instead of a thick hardware keyboard magnetically attached to the bottom edge of the device, as we saw with the Pixel C, this year Google seems to be putting on a cover with an integrated, attachable keyboard, which can be connected to the tablet via four pins.

Google shipped 2.53 million Pixel 2 and 2 XL devices through the nine months ended June 30, garnering less than 1 percent of the global market for smartphones, according to research firm Strategy Analytics. It will most probably feature an ARM-based mobile processor or an ultra-low power CPU from Intel. The new Google Home Hub will come with a 7-inch screen with the speaker behind it, and it will compete directly with the newly launched Amazon Echo Show. A handful of new images of the tablet have been acquired by MySmartPrice, which show the Slate with a detachable keyboard and active pen.
