Google is preparing to introduce mini smartphone

One of my favorites is "Number of Pixel 3 XL leaks is more than the number of units of Pixel 2 sold". There are some changes in design, including a bigger display and of course, a notch. Reportedly, Google is also planning to add the Pixel camera app into the Slate to help it shoot Pixel phones-like bokeh shots.

The Chromecast could also be getting an update since it's been several years since the last one. Although the Google Pixel 3-series is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip, it would be the Android 9.0 Pie customised for Google Pixel that would be the key differentiating factor.

There's no word on how long these offers will be live but expect plenty more price cuts once the new Pixel and Pixel 3XL hit stores. The device will be unveiled alongside the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones.

Just when we thought we had seen enough of Google Pixel 3 leaks, we are served fresh leaks by the company's carrier and retail partners.

Pixel 3 XL is a masterpiece in terms of specs. It allowed the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL users to trigger Google Assistant by squeezing the phone. The new Chrome OS tablet "Google Pixel Slate" will have detachable keyboard, which likewise proposes that the Pixel Slate will accompany a Blue-coloured Pixel Pen. It will also ditch the 3.5mm port in favour of USB-C earbuds and wireless audio gear, new leaked images confirm.

The incident was investigated by the stewards, with no further action taken, but Verstappen felt it was clear Vettel had been at fault.

The major point of difference between the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is going to be the size and screen. Photos of the device are shown below. Here's how to ensure you get your device on launch day.

And then, there are the little things. Similar to any other smart home speaker device, the Google Home Hub will be able to take voice-based commands and respond to it. Google's Smart Displays platform launched earlier this year, and we have only seen third-party smart displays from Google's partners so far.

Google is leaving room for its partners by keeping this display small at 7 inches, which is smaller than the Lenovo Smart Display. The device will have a speaker on the back but don't expect it to produce high-quality sound at all. Other information leaked on the web indicates the box will come with a pair of Type-C earphones. Priced at $149, the device is expected to compete with the likes of the Amazon Echo Show.

However, my MobileTechRoundup podcast co-host Kevin Tofel uses his Pixelbook in tablet mode most of the time and is very interested in a Chrome OS tablet.

And finally there is expected to be a new Chromecast. Chrome OS fans will not have to wait long before they find out, though.
