Here's every device Google launched at its Made By Google event

Here's every device Google launched at its Made By Google event”

This is going to be another smart speaker from Google which is set to launch in the upcoming event. But in the case of the Pixel 3 XL it may not be enough because the world, and particularly Apple which is doing some magic in the phones like the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max, is not standing still. Official details will of course be revealed at the Google Pixel 3 launch event later today.

Google previewed a call screening service to filter out telemarketers - you get a transcript instead - but it's US-only for now.

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL are touted to be one of the worst kept secrets of the smartphone industry, with new leaks and rumours surfacing almost every week for the last few months.

Finally, one of the most rumored smartphones is out, and most of the speculations turned out to be true. The new Android 9.0 Pie brings the Adaptive battery feature which improves the battery life by learning the usage of apps over time.

The Android Pie duo sport 5.5in 1080x2160 and 6.3in 1440x2960 OLED displays, respectively, up from the 5in and 6in screens found on last year's Google flagships.

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are scheduled to get announced tomorrow. The screen should have a 3: 2 form factor and the stylus should be very similar to the one presented previous year along with Pixelbook.

The renders of the Pixel Slate features dual front-facing speakers, a USB-C port and a fingerprint reader.

The camera of Pixel will be 12.2 MP dual Pixel single rear camera with autofocus with optical+electronic image stabilization. However, a Pixel 3 XL unit abandoned in a Lyft cab by a Google employee (it sounds outrageous, but a Lyft driver became an unlikely leakster) showed the Pixel 3 XL retain the chassis of its predecessor.

Oh yes. Pixel slate is the Google's first Chrome OS tablet which will compete with Apple's iPad Pro and Microsoft's Surface Line.

DxOMark scores are also expected to be off the charts once again, building on the success of the Google Pixel and Pixel 2 cameras. There is no information on the exact size of the screen and resolution of the Pixel Slate. The front facing cameras are 8-megapixel, and make it possible to take Group Selfies. The battery capacity is said to be 2,915 mAh, up from 2,700 mAh of Pixel 2. Below, you can view a keyboard accessory for the Pixel Slate in the same deep blue color.

Google also announced the Google Home Hub, which is essentially the company's version of Amazon's Echo Show and Facebook's Portal. You'll immediately see a transcript of the caller's responses so that you can then decide whether to pick up, respond by tapping a quick reply (e.g., "I'll call you back later"), or mark the call as spam and dismiss.

Home Hub is priced at $149, which is indeed a head turner.
