Pixel 3 launch: Google to unveil iPhone challenger and smart home hub

Rumours and leaks have plagued this device in recent months but we'll finally find out all the official upgrades and United Kingdom price when Google reveals all at its major keynote in NY.

In its Hardware event scheduled to happen on October 9, Google is expected to make some very exciting reveals.

Google is also expected to announce an updated Chromecast with better connectivity features.

To address the elephant in the room, this year's event is a little awkward for everyone because so much about the Pixel 3 was leaked in advance - including outright hands-on articles that we published last week.

So just a click to follow the live streaming of this exceptional event of Google.

Meanwhile, UK pricing for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL recently appeared to leak through an alleged EE promotional leaflet. A handful of new images of the tablet have been acquired by MySmartPrice, which show the Slate with a detachable keyboard and active pen.

While not an official review, Lai does a quick demonstration of the Pixel 3 XL's features, including a 6.3-inch display, a single 12.2-megapixel camera on the rear, 128GB of storage, and 4GB of RAM, although it's believed there will also be a higher-end model with 6GB of RAM.

Google on Tuesday will finally unveil the Pixel 3 phones, with both devices expected to go on sale after the press event.

This includes a new smart video speaker, the Home Hub, that will compete with Amazon's own Echo Show device and the Facebook Portal home camera, which was revealed on Monday. The Google "Bonito" is actually one of Google's rumored Pixel phones, a small one, not the Pixel 3, but an even smaller one, more on that in a second.

Richard Lai, an Engadget editor, obtained the device from a Hong Kong retailer who is, apparently, selling Google Pixel 3 XL before its official release.

The biggest change under the hood would be in the charging department, as the new Pixels are expected to be Google's first devices to offer wireless charging solutions.

Specifications photographed from the Pixel 3 XL packaging has confirmed the handset will have a notch at the top of the all-screen design - similar to iPhone X. The device will be featuring 16 GB of RAM and it will be powered by Intel Core i7 processor. It features a shortcut key for accessing Google Assistant.

There have been few details about a new pair of Pixel Buds, Google's Bluetooth ear buds. However, the Google Pixel Slate is a fairly new addition to the Pixel lineup. We are in NY to bring you the latest updates.
