Telstra's Google Pixel 3 Plans And Pricing

Telstra's Google Pixel 3 Plans And Pricing

We got a chance to check it out at Google's launch event. The event will kick off at 11:00AM ET, which corresponds to 8:30PM IST. The Pixel 3 XL starts at $1,129 CAD for the 64GB and $1,259 for the 128GB.

But the front of both devices are where the biggest changes come.

As to how good the Hub is, we'd have to wait when there are actual units to review.

The Pixel 3, priced at $799, and a larger Pixel 3 XL, priced at $899, mark Google's latest entries for a phone lineup it hopes will someday be as popular as Apple Inc's (AAPL.O) iPhone.

The Pixel 3 features a 5.5-inch screen and the 3XL has a 6.3-inch screen.

One word comes to mind when I think of the Pixel's camera: Reliable.

The YouTube experience has been optimised on Home Hub, and it will also come with six months of free YouTube Premium. No matter, we have all the official details and availability info now.

Doctor Who: Fans hail Jodie Whitaker in female Doctor's first appearance
The Verdict: If this first adventure is any indicator of the season to come, series 11 of Doctor Who is off to a brilliant start. Plus, their roles could have easily been reversed if a death was absolutely necessary for the episode to work.

Interestingly, Google is bringing its controversial Duplex technology to the Pixel 3 first - although it will roll out to older Pixel devices in time. It has a 12.2MP sensor with 1.4 micron pixels and an f/1.8 aperture.

Google's homegrown smartphone hardly challenges the status quo all-screen, jumbo-sized designs from Apple and Samsung. It is a wireless charger that props the Pixel up so you can see the screen.

Google will be hosting its annual "Made by Google" event later today. Initially launched on the Pixel 3 phones, the feature will eventually be rolled out to other Pixel phones. Available later this year and starting at $599, it's a direct shot at Apple and Microsoft. The new generation of Pixel phones features an improved camera that's backed by Google's AI.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are available in Just Black, Clearly White, and Not Pink color options. The Pixel Slate runs Google's Chrome operating system, and Trond Wuellner, Google's director of product management, definitively said during the event that it is "not a laptop trying to be a tablet". It wouldn't be worth the $80 Google's charging for the Pixel Stand, but at the right price it could still be a perfectly satisfactory accessory. Lastly, there will also be a top end model with Intel Core 8500Y processor clocked at 4.2GHz. On the storage front, the smartphone comes in either 64GB or 128GB capacities without a support for microSD card.

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 display has a resolution of 2960×1440, and it's also OLED. It also has dedicated 8MP front and rear-facing cameras. That means you can, without voice commands, swipe and tap at it to control your home's smart devices, check the weather, and see your commute.

However, it wasn't clear if these refer to different sizes, designs, or if there will be a version with 4G and one with just Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Google has built in some new features to take advantage of that camera, like a Top Shot feature that'll capture alternate HDR+ shots when you take a motion photo and recommend the best one.
