Google Pixel 3 and Pixel Slate to new Chromecast: Here’s what to expect from the Google event tonight

Google is about to announce the introduction of the new Google Pixel Slate at its hardware event in New York City.

Rumors suggest Google could have new Pixel phones, a tablet, a screen-equipped smart speaker and a pair of headphones up its sleeve.

In addition to the aforementioned phones, you can also expect Google to unveil new Pixel Buds, a Pixel Slate 2-in-1 laptop, a Pixelbook 2, Chromecast 3 and maybe - just maybe - a Pixel 3 Mini.

Google's fall event is upon us and the company's love affair with home tech is well represented by the all-new Home Hub. In India, the Google Pixel 3 event will start at 8:10 pm.

Vokoun is hoping that Pixel Slate will be the preferred computing device for "the on-the-go-professional who wants a device to get work done, but has downtime to watch videos".

After months of leaks and rumours, Google has finally taken the wraps off its latest flagship smartphones, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, at its annual Made By Google event. The other software-based features remain unchanged. Moreover, Google is also expected to add wireless charging to the Pixel devices for the first time.

The renders of the Pixel Slate features dual front-facing speakers, a USB-C port and a fingerprint reader. The new Pixel 3 phones feature a new wireless charging stand (dubbed Pixel Stand) as well as unlimited storage in Google Photos. Meanwhile, the Google Pixel 2 XL cost $849 for the 64GB model and $949 for the 128GB variant. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have 6.3-inch and 5.5-inch displays, respectively, and once again feature single rear cameras that rely on software for fancy tricks.

The Pixel 3 is available for pre-order today for $799 and will launch on October 18 in Just White, Clearly Black and Not Pink color schemes.

The detachable keyboard on the pixel Slate means you will be able to heavily customize the device with your own likings, including buying things like third-party keyboards or even sleeves for your device. It also compares the camera samples of the Pixel 3 XL and iPhone XS Max.

A USA regulatory filing points to Google's matching on Tuesday rivals Amazon.com Inc and Facebook Inc with a smart speaker that has a display to show visual responses to voice commands.

The Google Home Hub will set you back $149.99.

But it remains to be seen how much of an impact the Pixel 3 can make on a marketplace dominated by Apple, Huawei and Samsung.

In addition to physical design updates, the phone added a few more features that are created to work in tandem with the new Android operating system 9.0. The existing Pixel lineup is known for taking the best selfies in the business and it is no surprise that Google would like to take this further.
