Google Pixel Slate teased ahead of October 9th event

Google Pixel Slate teased ahead of October 9th event

While we do not have any more details now, there is a good chance that the two Pixel handsets will go on pre-order in the country soon after their formal launch. The tech giant has confirmed to the global media that we wouldn't be seeing any new smartphone watch on the sets tomorrow.

It's no surprise that the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are set to launch. On the inside, the phones will be identical in terms of hardware and performance.

In terms of optics, Engadget claims the upcoming Pixel 3 XL to come with a 12.2MP primary camera sensor and an 8MP camera sensor up front. The device could be seen featuring minimal bezels on the front-fascia with a slightly thick chin at the bottom. The most recent Pixel Slate leak has proposed a few of the features and details of the device.

Google has so far let third parties build Smart Displays to go with the Google Assistant.

Google will be unveiling Pixel Slate on October 9. The presence f USB Type-C port suggests that it may be a thin tablet. The company may also use the event to showcase the Pixelbook 2, Pixel Buds and the rumored Pixel Slate.

Apart from these rumours, an official teaser from Google in Japan revealed the color scheme for the upcoming smartphones - Mint, White and Black. If you're interested in watching the launch event live, we have embedded the video for your convenience. We can reasonably conclude that a charging stand may be on the docket for Tuesday. The company is introducing a new "style match" feature that will scan something the camera is pointed at and help you buy it from internet retailers. While we have a pretty good idea of what announcements to expect, the most obvious are the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. Another new device that is now expected to get unveiled tomorrow is the Google Pixel Slate.

Google may also announce a new smart screen device called the Google Home Hub, which will essentially function similarly to Google's Home smart speakers powered by Google Assistant, but with a 7-inch touchscreen.

The launch is set to take place at Google's "Made by Google" event in NY. The Pixel 3 XL has a 15cm screen, 128GB storage capacity, and a Snapdragon 845 chipset, as well as four gigabytes of RAM (though Lai noted the possibility of a premium version with six gigabytes). On a notable side, the Google Pixelbook 2 device would support display up to 4K.
