Made by Google event today

According to what appears to be leaked listing from United Kingdom mobile firm EE, shared on Twitter by Jon Prosser, the Google Home Hub will be available from October 22.

And if you don't manage to catch the main event live, Google will have a recording available via YouTube after the fact.

What will Google present on October 9th?

Per Engadget, which borrowed the Pixel 3 XL from the site that reviewed it a few days ago, a Hong Kong mobile shop is selling the handset for HK$15,880, which is around $2,030. Under the hood, both the smartphones are likely to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 SoC clubbed with a 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal memory. The Google Pixel 3 will have a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 2160 pixels, while the Pixel 3 XL will feature a larger 6.3-inch notched display with 1440 x 2880 pixels. 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.

Obviously, the battery will also change, which will be bigger on the XL model.

The Pixel 3 XL boasts a 6.7-inch display, nearly an inch larger than the Pixel 2 XL, while the smaller Pixel 3 has a 5.3-inch display. The feature also focuses on saving device storage by decreasing the resolution of unimportant parts of the picture and retaining the high-quality of the subject and key elements. The front cameras have a resolution of 8 MP each. You'll be able to point your phone's camera at text in the real world - say, a written down Wi-Fi password - grab that text, and then paste it into a text field on your smartphone. Given the size of the speakers, we'd expect the Home Hub to offer better sound quality - somewhere between the Google Home and the Home Max. Pixel 3 will be available in three color options - Just Black, Clearly White, and Not Pink. Also, we might see a new version of the their Chromecast digital media player and even a Chrome OS tablet.

Instead of a metallic keyboard, this year there will be a keyboard cover like the one for the iPads.

The logo of Google is pictured during the Viva Tech start-up and technology summit in Paris, France, May 25, 2018. It is not clear if it will be provided with cellular connectivity.

The connection to the keyboard is via a small 4-pin connector, and a touchpad is not missing to control the cursor.

The event is taking place in NY, instead of San Francisco.

That is all for the moment. We have seen both the smartphones in leaked renders and we have also come across their specifications.

Photobooth will let you capture pictures photobooth-style, just like that Google Clips camera that Google launched a year ago.
