Can Google Pixel 3 take on other Android flagships?

  • New Google Home App

Just like its predecessors, Pixel 3 is touting the "world's best camera", with a Google official also bragging that the device could be world's most helpful phone. When Nexus and the first generation of Pixel devices were launched, Google stated that it will provide Android version updates for the next two years while these devices will the security fixes for three years.

Until previous year, Google made its Pixel (or Nexus) phones in collaboration with third-party OEMs like HTC or LG. Another new feature likely coming to the Pixel 1, 2, and 3 is Motion Auto Focus. In another apparent nod to privacy concerns, Google didn't put a camera on its Home Hub like Amazon and Facebook did with their respective devices to enable video calls.

Has your trust in Google and its devices been lost, or are you willing to give these new products a try?

He noted that Google has significantly increased its hardware capabilities with the acquisition of Taiwanese firm HTC's smartphone team earlier this year. The tablet works with the Android Camera App which makes the quality of the pictures just a little better. That's the case with these new phones.

The new speaker is powered by Google's smart digital assistant and is designed "to get the state of the entire home" by connecting to other smart devices, said Google vice-president of product management Diya Jolly.

For the time being, the Pixel 2 will continue to retail alongside its upgrade.

Relatives said the limousine was carrying four sisters and their friends to a 30th birthday celebration for the youngest. The Gansevoort, New York-based company says it also has met with state and federal authorities and plans to do so again.

We'll update this post as soon as Google starts releasing these exciting features to older Pixel devices.

The Pixel 3 will cost Rs. 71,000 for the 64GB variant in India and up to Rs. 80,000 for the 128GB storage variant.

With the Pixel Slate, Google is challenging the iPad Pro from Apple and the Surface Pro lineup from Microsoft. A useful feature for when all your mates turn up to see your shiny new smartphone. The smaller Pixel 3 has a bezel straight across the top, but its two front-facing cameras are left-justified. The phones also have 4GB of RAM, which should make for speedy and smooth performance, even if other premium phones have more RAM. You can choose to pick up or ignore the call. From the demonstration, it looked like a total sampling of 13 photos per each shutter snap, but Top Shot technology may have even captured way more. The two-tone design remains, and the cameras and embossed Google logo haven't moved a millimetre.

For photography enthusiasts, the Pixel 3 is undeniably the way to go.

All the features above are based on Google's machine learning, artificial intelligence, and software rather than hardware. "If you have a Google tattoo on you, then these are the phones for you", IDC analyst Ramon Llamas said of the Pixel's limited appeal so far.
