Out of the box it came running Android 9.0 Pie, with Active Edge enabling gestures like squeezing the sides of the phone to perform actions. Several leaks have taken place over the last couple of months and while much of the focus has been placed on the smartphone lineup, it looks like we'll be seeing a Pixel tablet this year too.

The timeline for the India launch a couple of weeks after the global announcement seems to be in line with what Google did previous year with Pixel 2-series phones. Now the new introductions will be the one advancing this series.

The company teased the Pixel devices with its AI, saying the camera has been trained on pictures from Google Images to "know a good photo when it sees it".

Phones have plateaued somewhat in terms of their hardware, but two things are changing.

Other than the notch, the Pixel 3 packs a Snapdragon 845 chip, 4GB of RAM, 8MP rear and front camera, and features created to help users control excessive phone use, screen phone calls, and AI-powered features.

To recall, the Pixel 2 was launched in India at Rs. 61,000 for the 64GB model, while its 128GB model is priced at Rs. 70,000.

A new third-generation Chromecast might also be in the pipeline for the upcoming event.

"This Chrome OS device is both a powerful workstation at the office, and a home theater you can hold in your hands", said Rick Osterloh, Google's senior vice president of hardware, in a blog post. Still, there have been no words about any upgraded internal specs.
