Google unveiled a new series of devices at an event New York City Tuesday, including the widely reported next generation of the Pixel smartphone, as well as a smart home hub and a new tablet.

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.

The Google Pixel 3 XL has a massive notch - that black bit that houses the cameras and speaker at the top of the phone, that eats into a bit of the screen.

As a reminder, the Pixel 3 XL features a 6.3-inch OLED display with a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels.

Because the design team learned that many people leave their phones on their nightstand to charge, the Stand enables a new setting in the Pixel 3 that mimics sunrise alarm clocks, slowly turning the screen from deep red to a bright yellow to wake you up. The Pixel 3 phones are also stated to have the best smartphone camera, and they have new software features such as Night Sight and Super Res Zoom. The devices offer the latest in terms of processor, making use of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 and pack 4GB RAM.

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL will be available in pink, black and white with pre-orders starting at $799 United States dollars and launching October 18.

The Google Home Hub adds a smart screen to your smart home.

Best Tweets - 'Just in: Riyad Mahrez penalty has landed'
Liverpool full-back Andrew Robertson dismissed suggestions the Premier League title race was already down to two teams. I also have my concerns about Sarri's side defensively, namely with David Luiz playing in a four-man defence.

Priced at S$119, the Pixel Stand is meant to turn the Pixel 3 into a visual and audio AI assistant. They also include an "accessory connector for Pixel Slate Keyboard".

Google's AI will also greatly improve nighttime photography, the company said, and will eliminate muddy, dark pictures. Aside from the display, the device works very much like the Google Home already in homes, with personalized voice recognition, alerts, and other information delivered based on the time of day.

After all the leaks, the Pixel 3 and 3 XL are ... exactly like the leaks.

The Pixel 3 is a better-looking phone, in my opinion. On the other hand, the larger Pixel 3 XL with 64GB and 128GB of internal storage will be available for Rs 83,000 and Rs 92,000 respectively.

In terms of ergonomics, both the devices feel more compact, in fact, nearly the same as the 2017 editions. Two USB-C ports live on the left and right side, but there's no 3.5mm headphone jack. You can pick the device up in four colors.
