Exclusive Google Pixel 3 deal

Amidst the launch of the Pixel 3, Pixel Slate, and Home Hub yesterday, Google also quietly released a new Chromecast media streamer.

The major highlights of the smartphones include a 5.5-inch OLED display for the Google Pixel 3 while the larger Google Pixel 3 XL sports a 6.3-inch QHD+ OLED display.

The Google Pixel 3 XL has a massive notch - that black bit that houses the cameras and speaker at the top of the phone, that eats into a bit of the screen.

Notably, the overall design of both the flagships, from the rear, look nearly the same as its predecessors Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL and Google has opted for a single rear camera on both.

The Home Hub works like its siblings, providing the full Google Assistant voice experience, alongside music playback and smart home device control, while also introducing improved functionality and new features - thanks largely to that touchscreen.

Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, the Google Pixel 3 comes with 4GB RAM.

The phone which launches officially on October 18 starts at 799 United States dollars for the 64GB while the 3XL is priced at 899 U.S. dollars.
