Real-time updates at the launch event

With the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, though, Google is finally adding support for wireless charging.

The reviewed phone is a full-fledged Pixel 3 XL retail box, complete with everything you expect to see inside it. The design appears to be similar to the Fabric Cases sold by Google for the Pixel 2 line, with similar cut outs for camera and fingerprint sensor.

The new Pixel-branded phones will anchor the event in NY.

There have been multiple instances where the upcoming Google Pixel 3 XL has leaked online. Seems like a big clue about the colors that we expect for phones.

The Google Pixel 2 started at a price of around Rs 61,000 and the Pixel 3 is expected to be slightly higher than its predecessor.

Here are the key details: The Pixel 3 and 3XL run Android 9 Pie with an 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. The premium Android smartphones reportedly have water and dust resistance certification (IP68). It is also expected to come with an upgraded front camera that can capture videos at 1080p, and 60 frames per second.

The main attraction, however, will be Google's smartphone. The rear of the devices could have a single 12MP unit. The Pixel Slate accessory has four pogo pins through which all the data transfer happens. The Pixel 3 XL is supposed to sport a 6.3-inch QHD+ and a larger battery.

The Pixel 3 XL, on the other hand, will come with a 19:9 aspect ratio display, and the thick top and bottom chin will still exist, at least based on the leaks. As far as the design is concerned, the Pixel 3 XL looks nearly similar to its predecessor - Pixel 2XL - from the back, but the front design of the phone has been revamped. The improved pen for the Pixelbooks should also work on the new Google tablet. There's also a USB Type-C port on one of its sides. The renders of the rumored tablet have also leaked.

The keyboard will be detachable and connect via a pogo connector. Moreover, it can easily fold, which transforms the tablet into a laptop.

The logo of Google is pictured during the Viva Tech start-up and technology summit in Paris, France, May 25, 2018. Going by what's on the tablet's screen in the image, there appears to be a newer version of Chrome OS software with a back button and a centralised icon dock at the bottom. The device comes with a capacitive stylus. Presumably, the link will be fixed once Google launches the phone.
