Either way, the event today kicks off at 11AM Eastern (8AM Pacific)! A new smart speaker could also be unveiled at the Pixel 3 event. It will have a (rather large) top bezel instead, to match the bottom chin. The tech giant released a video to social media suggesting that online bloggers who claim to know "everything about the Pixel 3" might be missing something. We're expected a lot of announcements, and things to move quickly. The alleged Pixel 3 XL was available for HK$15,880 or around Rs 1,50,000.

Which of you will follow the live streaming of the Google event? It would be interesting to see if Google shifts to a dual-camera setup at the back, though that is very unlikely. Even the HDR+ feature helps photos to have a good dynamic range, and some of the credits can be given to the dedicated Pixel Visual Core.

This is a new colour for the Pixel Fabric Case line, with the current range consisting of Carbon, Cement, Midnight and the divisive Coral.

As most Android phone makers are moving to the trend of in-display fingerprint sensor, Google decides to stick to the rear mounted circular fingerprint sensor for the Pixel phones this year.

The company is expected to initiate the pre-orders for the new Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL device from tomorrow onwards, immediately after the event.

One of the changes coming to this year's Pixel is the ability to wirelessly charge, thanks to the glass back.

Finally there's rumours around something called the Google Hub.

Google is expected to include a Pixelbook Pen with the Slate tablet. The screen should have a 3: 2 form factor and the stylus should be very similar to the one presented a year ago along with Pixelbook.

What are your thoughts regarding the Pixel Slate? Richard also put up an early hands-on of the device, confirming all the specification leaks about the device. 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 squeeze feature will also let users create a shortcut to the Google Lens camera.

Alongside the video, Google tweeted: "So you think you know..." As per FCC filings, it is supposed to add Bluetooth and improved 5GHz Wi-Fi support. Chromecast Ultra with support for 4K HDR, Chromecast Audio with multiroom streaming is expected to make an appearance.
