Google Pixel 3 XL Is Already Selling In Hong Kong Before Launch

The most awaited device in this event is going to be the Google Pixel 3.

The rumors seem true as both Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL sport larger displays than last year's models at 5.5in and 6.3in.

Alphabet Inc's Google launched the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL at its annual hardware event "Made by Google", along with a Google Home Hub, a new Pixel Slate tablet and and Pixel Stand wireless dock. There have been so many leaks about what will be unveiled, the only thing we don't know yet is what colour shirt Sundar Pinchai will be wearing. The Pixel 3 XL will officially be the most expensive Android phone sold in the country.

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.

"The Pixel 2 was a well-executed smartphone that cheered Android purists, so it'll be interesting to see if Google's latest device can build on last year's success". Now the new introductions will be the one advancing this series.

That's why -according to 9to5Google - the Mountain View company is loading the Pixel 3 with new AI-powered photo abilities which will be announced today. The core hardware inside the phone is typical of what you get in a high-end phone nowadays.

Both devices feature SD 845 chip, 2 front-firing stereo speakers, Android 9.0 Pie, 4GB RAM, 64GB/128GB storage, and wireless charging up to 10 watts.

Google's new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL start from exactly where the Pixel 2 left off. And that's how much you'd have to pay for the Pixel 3 XL in Hong Kong right now.

Additional leaked screenshots show that the phone will have a 2,915mAh battery, which is a noteworthy jump in capacity from the Pixel 2. Photo Booth, Motion Auto Focus, and an enhanced Portrait mode are some of the new features with the Pixel 3 camera. We aren't sure on storage, but my guess is that Google will allow you to fully deck this little guy out. Google Home marked Google's first steps into the smart speaker market where Amazon now dominates. The Home Hub retails for $149 and ships October 22. Sources say that Google will unveil a new tablet, a cheaper Google Home, or new Pixel accessories. Also shown is the Slate's stylus and detachable keyboard, the latter connecting with a pogo connector.

The company also introduced a new convertible 2-in-1 Chromebook - the Pixel Slate and the Home Hub - its own smart display that is equipped with Google Assistant.

There's also rumours about two new colour variants-pink and aqua.

To recall, the Pixel 2 was launched in India at Rs. 61,000 for the 64GB model, while its 128GB model is priced at Rs. 70,000.

Google tends to highlight that its phones aren't only about hardware.
