Google officially unveiled the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL after weeks of rumours and, unsurprisingly, they’re packed with new features and hardware that make them an appreciable upgrade over not just Google’s past Pixel smartphones, but many of their competitors as well.
Google events don’t typically elicit the same amount of fanfare as Apple’s do, but the announcements are just as enticing for both enthusiasts and anyone who likes shiny new things. This year, in an event held in New York City, the company revealed its new Pixel phones, a redux of the Pixel tablet (now with Chrome OS), a smart display, and a host of other devices it didn’t even bother mentioning (though we’ll tell you about them).
In the history of worst kept secrets ever, Google's Pixel 3 would have to be close to the top of the list. With the alleged theft of a shipment of phones trumping the infamous "found it in a bar" iPhone 4 leak, we know a lot about the Google flagship smartphone that will be announced during the wee hours of Wednesday 10 October 2018. Here's everything we know about the Google Pixel 3 so far.
Over the past few months, the Pixel 3 XL has been subject to a barrage of leaks from online sleuthsters. We're not sure if this is down to cunning design on Google's part or bumbling ineptitude. Either way, we know practically everything about the new phone - and now there's an unboxing video to go with all those juicy specifications.
Some lines of code in a beta of Google's software refer to a "Pixel Stand". And that code says that if you allow your phone to recognise the Pixel Stand as a trusted dock that you'll be able to use the Google Assistant even when your phone is locked. In other words, the dock will be a smart speaker powered by the Google Pixel 3 XL.
