Sadly no headphone jack for those who prefer it but they do supply a free adaptor for USB Type-C to 3.5 mm jack and as well as a headphone with a Type-C connector. This flagship smartphone will be coming with a 5.5 inch FHD+ flexible OLED screen. It sports a 6.3-inch display and is powered by a 3430 mAh battery.

"Pixel 3 will likely double down on the features that saw its predecessor garnering solid acclaim - so expect market-beating rear and selfie cameras, a pacy processor and an expansive screen".

Furthermore, both features Top Shot that automatically captures multiple images and recommends the best shot using machine learning, and Super Res Zoom which frames a zoom shot without having to use a telephoto lens. I also like that Google continues to use a colourful power button, at least for the (not) pink and white variants. In the latest news, a Hong Kong-based retailer has already started selling the device, and Engadget had already managed to get its hands on the device.

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are set to debut today. It is the company's version of Microsoft's Surface 2-in1 detachable devices.

Rand gains on Tito Mboweni's appointment as SA finance minister
Speaking on Tuesday afternoon at Tuynhuys, Ramaphosa said Mboweni would provide the strong leadership needed at this time. Ramaphosa said he had received a resignation letter from Nene and had made a decision to accept it.

There is no information on the exact size of the screen and resolution of the Pixel Slate. This new tablet was previously being referred to as "Nocturne", and it is going to come with Intel's Core i7 processor with up to 16GB of RAM. The company claims that it's capable of up to 10 hours of battery life.

The two devices are super expected, but in reality, nearly everything is already known about them since even the XL model is already on sale in China (even if it costs nearly 2000 euros). Meanwhile, SD storage is 32GB/64GB/128GB/256GB. The effect will likely be a wider field of view which is similar to the LG V40 ThinQ. All that space is wisely used by Google though as it houses dual front-facing cameras and a speaker.

Impact: If Google ends up releasing a tiny Pixel "Bonito" at some point, or as early as tomorrow, that would certainly be a surprise despite this report. This activates the Google Assistant by squeezing the sides of the smartphone. Although the Geekbench entry specifies Android 9 "Pie" as the operating system, it has been stated that the tablet will utilize Chrome OS, whilst also being capable of installing and running Android apps. Google Home is falling behind Amazon Echo due to its limited availability. It costs $149 and will be available in the US, UK, and Australia on October 22. The notch is actually extremely thick and it is actually double the width of the notch that you'd find in other Android devices. Then, a much smarter AI will make a selection from all shots to give you the very best image possible, using parameters like smiles, open eyes, or your dog looking at the camera.
