Behold! The New Pixelbook Pen. Now In Pixel Slate Color

A previously announced feature in which software will call businesses to make appointments and restaurant reservations for you will debut on the Pixel first, for instance - initially in New York, Atlanta, Phoenix, Arizona, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Moving to cameras, expectedly, the Google has stuffed dual front-facing camera to crystal clear selfies which consist of two wide-angle, 12-megapixel camera lenses.

The phone will likely come in two sizes - a 5.5-inch base model and the larger six-inch Pixel 3 XL.

Google may attempt to differentiate itself from rivals by launching a smart display with a smaller screen, as it tries to cater toward consumers who would use it for things like weather updates and reminders, instead of things like watching videos.

Other than the display size, the exterior design of both devices are the same.

Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC with an octa-core CPU, paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB storage. The device comes with 3,732mAh battery and 6.3-inch OLED panel which "looks good on a sunny day". It has a USB Type-C connection on one of the sides, and black areas on both sides could indicate that it comes with LTE cellular compatibility. It has also got 18W fast charging with wireless Qi-certified charging support. Google's Android version 9 brings important features like adaptive battery, adaptive display, and digital well-being along with UI overhaul.

Taylor Swift statement inspires voter registration surge
After 24-hours and almost two million Instagram likes later, Vote.org said Tennessee voter registration jumped 65,000 in a day. After her post went up, encouraging fans to go to vote.org, the site saw more than 155,000 unique visitors in a 24-hour period.

The back of the Pixel 3 phones are expected to be entirely glass, with the bottom half once again coated in a matte paint to give it that two-tone look.

The Google Pixel Slate sports dark blue color.

How much will the Google Pixel cost?

At the front, there are dual 8MP shooters. When you take a motion photo, it captures alternate shots in HDR+, then recommends the best one-even if it's not exactly when you hit the shutter-looking for those where everyone is smiling, with eyes open, and facing the camera. So, if you take a group photo and someone closes their eye, you can actually use Top Shot to select a photo when their eyes were not closed. That was the impression I got after briefly using the Pixel 3 XL, hours after it was launched along with the Pixel 3 on Tuesday night.

According to the images leaked to the network until today, Chrome OS should receive a new user interface, with a central dock and a "Back" button. Now, with the early-shipped devices out there, the Pixel 3 XL has even been fully reviewed. This means all the Pie goodness like redesigned Quick Settings, Material Design 2 themed System UI, enhanced notifications, navigation gestures, and more are all present here.

The Pixel 3 starts at $799 (£739, AU$1,199) and the Pixel 3 XL starts at $899 (£869, AU$1,349); Australian pricing hasn't been confirmed. For improved security, the Pixel 3 and 3 XL come with a custom Titan M security chip.
