The smartphones are priced at $799 and $899 for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL devices.

The Black and Blue Pixelbook pen is listed side-by-side with the current White and Silver Pen on the stores Pixelbook page under "You also might be into".

Google has launched its brand new smartphone at an event that was held in NY along with other cities like Tokyo, London, Paris, and Singapore. Still, there have been no words about any upgraded internal specs. The Pixel 3 XL is a slicker phone, mostly because of the glass that Google has used in the phone.

For those people who don't know, Google Pixel 2 was widely known for its use of stock android which enthusiast like me appreciate, and its single camera setup that stood toe-to-toe with the markets heavy hitters, same goes this time around.

The Pixel 2 featured a 5.0-inch 16:9 AMOLED display with a pixel density of 441 ppi and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The Pixel 3 XL price is £869 and £969 with 64GB and 128GB of storage, respectively. The Pixel 2 featured the last-gen Snapdragon 835 SoC paired with Adreno 540 GPU. On the inside, the phones will be identical in terms of hardware and performance. However, that doesn't mean you can't already buy the Pixel 3 in stores.

It packs a bunch of cool new features, FDA-approved ECG included, and has a powerful new S4 processor, which is more than welcome. Luckily it's not something that Apple Watch Series 4 owners in South Africa will have to worry about, as DST is not a thing here.

Banksy artwork shreds itself after selling for 1 mn pound at auction
However, it will perhaps now be worth even more now, going down in history as one of the art work's greatest ever pranks. The auction house added: "We had no prior knowledge of this event and were not in any way involved".

The Pixel phones unveiled Tuesday in NY come in two different sizes, but both feature high-definition screens that span from one edge to another. When you take a motion photo, it captures alternate shots in HDR+, then recommends the best one-even if it's not exactly when you hit the shutter-looking for those where everyone is smiling, with eyes open, and facing the camera. For example, there's a feature called Night Sight, which allows for much clearer pictures to be captured in low-lighting. "The Pixel 2 boasted a pretty reasonable price tag for a premium phone without compromising on any of any aspects you'd expect from a top-end handset", he said. However, the company has come up with a 2915mAh battery with the new Pixel 3. It has also got 18W fast charging with wireless Qi-certified charging support. Alongside the devices, the company also introduced wireless charging accessory called Pixel Stand, which is priced at Rs 6,900.

The new flagship smartphones are packed with bigger displays, better cameras, and better processors.

There are also different tiers of RAM and storage on offer, with the cheapest Pixel Slate having 4GB RAM, the two mid-range models using 8GB RAM and the top of the line flavour utilising 16GB RAM.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL obviously both ship with the latest and greatest version of Android, which is Android 9.0 Pie. Furthermore, the Pixel 3 comes with an IP68 rating while the predecessor had an IP67 rating for water and dust resistant protection.
