Google's annual hardware show saw the announcement of several new products including the Pixel 3, Google Home Hub and Chromecast 3. The phones' new all glass and metal design is sleek and lightweight, the displays are lovely despite the big bezels that are still present on both models, and the camera continues to be a stand-out feature for Google this year. The third in its line of high-end smartphones, the Google Pixel has previously impressed reviewers with its camera quality.

It works with Google's Assistant and hardware. These phones are more expensive than last year's Pixels. Alongside it, they're now also selling a $79 wireless charging accessory dubbed "Pixel Stand" that essentially also turns your phone into a mini Smart Display.

A new artificial intelligence tool sure to generate buzz among consumers also could be helpful. We'll let you know what we think the Pixel is up to the challenge as soon as we actually manage to get our hands on one. The Hub features a 7-inch LCD touchscreen display, a "full-range" speaker and Bluetooth 5.0 support. Unlike the Amazon Echo Show or the Facebook Portal, Google is trying to distance itself from potential privacy concerns that often come with all-seeing assistant devices, resulting in a device that has zero video chat capabilities. The new Pixel devices carry a dual tone body design wherein half is matte and the other half is leather.

Well, we just dug out the dusty box, plugged it in, updated it, and waited to see how much had changed.

Google has revealed two new Pixel smartphones at a special event in NY, finally confirming the slew of leaks that have appeared in recent weeks.

As we mentioned right at the start, the Pixel 3 is a cute-looking phone. Once again, colors include Just Black, Clearly White, and Not Pink.

Second, Pixel users in the U.S. will be the first to get access to an experimental new Google Assistant feature, powered by Duplex technology, which helps you complete real-world tasks over the phone, like calling a restaurant to book a table.

The Pixel Slate is a strong first showing by Google, but it may need a little more than what it now has to offer in order to make any kind of dent in the Surface line's impressive hold of the 2-in-1 segment. Samsung also pushes Android forward and has many features found on future versions of Android. "One of the most exciting stories we have this year is how much machine learning and AI we put into the product", Seang Chau, vice president of Pixel software, told Fast Company.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be the first Pixel phones to launch in France at the same time as the US, FrAndroid explains. Also, Google has added wireless charging this time around.

How much is the Pixel Slate going to cost?

S Pen: The S Pen is a key differntiator in the smartphone market and with the additional Bluetooth capability on the Note 9 there are many new ways to use the S Pen for improved productivity and efficiency.
