"The Pixel 2 boasted a pretty reasonable price tag for a premium phone without compromising on any of any aspects you'd expect from a top-end handset", he said.
After experimenting with mobile hardware via Nexus-series for years, Google took a big leap of faith in 2016 with Apple-esque Pixel series where it had greater control on both hardware and software - hence the branding "made by Google".

The company has said that the pre-order for the smartphones will begin from October 11th and the sales for the same will start from November 1st, 2018. Sources say that Google will unveil a new tablet, a cheaper Google Home, or new Pixel accessories. On Tuesday, in New York City, Google officially announced the smartphones.

Pixel devices usually tend to perform well with the Google's stock Android paired up with the industry's latest specs and Pixel 2 is no exception and the Pixel 3 neither would be. That sparked rumours about wireless charging being implemented. There's also a dedicated Google Assistant key on the keyboard. Flip the phone, and you will notice a dual 8MP front camera system, with a super-wide secondary front camera. As a live feed will take over the Pixel 3 screen allowing you to see who is there.
On the Pixel 3 promotional video posted in the official "Made By Google" channel on YouTube, the top commenter goes, "Why they didn't put the headphone jack IN the notch?" The pressure-sensitive edges, always-on display, double tap to wake, are also there. Last year, Google invested billions of dollars in LG Display to speed up production at its factories.
Pixel 3 is likely to use an octa-core Qualcomm chipset, an Ardreno 630 GPU, and have 4GB of RAM. And there is the tall notch we have seen so far. CPU-Z also reported a battery voltage of 3732mAh, though rumors have pointed to a 3430mAh battery.
It'll feature a Chromebook tablet that attaches to a separate keyboard, according to photos from MySmartPrice, which has accurately leakedGoogle launches in the past. The versatile tablet runs Chrome OS. It can connect with your smart devices, but unlike its competitors, it doesn't contain a camera, which is probably a good thing considering these announcements came right after a massive Google+ data breach was reported.
