Even though most of the information was leaked long before the event, the company surprised the audience
On October 9th of this year, Google held the event, where it unveiled the latest of its products. Most of the information about new products was leaked long before this time, but somehow this fact became the instrument to hold the audience’s interest.
Moreover, the company shared the video on Twitter, in which it made fun of bloggers who believed they knew everything about the company’s novelties. Thus, until the last day, active interest toward the event remained.
Pixel 3 & Pixel 3XL
Most of the specs were somewhat anticipated. There are three colours available — Clearly White, Just Black, and Not Pink.
Google decided to improve the device’s screen, which became not only better but also somewhat larger (compared to previous models).
However, the company gave particular attention to the device’s camera improvements. Some experts have already claimed it to be “the best smartphone camera”, which still remains in question.
The new camera is endowed with HDR+, which is able to take burst shots, analyse every single one and choose the best.
In addition to minor improvements, the new camera had also surprised an audience with its Night Sight feature, which can be used in low-light settings without a flash and it works. There is also a Super Res Zoom feature, which implements zooming without any loss in picture quality.
Pixel 3 — $799
Pixel 3XL — $899
Now let’s say about what bloggers could not have anticipated. Google introduced Pixel Stand, a wireless charger. Its price is $79.
Google Pixel Slate
Developers said that they had attempted to combine the laptop, tablet, and smartphone in one housing.
Pixel Slate is a tablet with a touchscreen and Pixelbook Pen support, dual front-firing speakers, 8 MP front and rear cameras, and two microphones (for better noise cancellation).
Pixel Slate runs on Chrome OS, which guarantees instant and latest updates straight from developers.
Google Pixel Slate — $599
Google Pixel State Keyboard — $199
Google Pixelbook Pen — $99
Google Home Hub
Google Home was replaced with new Google Home Hub. The speaker is endowed with a display, but it lacks a camera, for you to feel more comfortable (referenced to privacy). The device recognises different voices, which is a useful feature for a family.
A new voice-controlled gadget with 7-inch screen costs just $149, which is a quite competitive price.
