Another new device from Google is the Pixel Slate.

But Google tweeted a video on Monday implying that maybe we don't know everything about the device.

This could suggest Google may focus heavily on the camera of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL today. The alleged Pixel 3 XL was available for HK$15,880 or around Rs 1,50,000.

The Pixel 3 with a 5.5-inch and Pixel 3 XL with a 6.3-inch screen (both OLED) are your pure Android options for 2018, the latter phone having a deep notch cut out at the top. We will see finally what Google is offering in it's hardware lineup this year.

The leaked photo showed the charging stand is primarily made up of one circular puck for the base, oval shape for the back of the stand. Among it was the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Reports starting surfacing a full month ago that Google was asking YouTubers for permission to use clips from Pixel 3 XL leak videos, so this strategy seems to have been in place for a full month.

For storage, both models will come in 64GB and 128GB variants without support for expandable storage.

Google also rolled out a new device called Home Hub that couples a small display screen with an internet-connected speaker. On the front, both phones will feature two 8-megapixel sensors.

As it turns out, the rumour mongers were correct and the company did in fact reveal their new tablet - the Google Pixel Slate. At the back of the Pixels, there is a single 12.2MP camera, bucking the industry trend of dual, and in some cases triple-lens setups. It comes out October 18 in the USA, to be followed by launches in Canada, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, India, Taiwan, Singapore, and Japan. The device is colored in dark blue, and it is adorned with a subtle Google "G" logo on the rear side. It is also expected that Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL devices will be launched in the domestic market by the second week of this month. The phones will also ship with Android 9 Pie. It will reportedly be called Pixel Slate and can double as a lightweight and easily portable laptop. The smart display will add to Google's current lineup of smart speakers that includes the Google Home Mini and Home Max.
