Download The Pixel 3’s Google Camera, Complete With RAW Support & New UI

What is surprising about the Pixel 3 XL is that it looks set to arrive with only a single, 12-megapixel camera at the rear. Yes, the Pixel Slate is slightly thinner than the Surface Pro 6 and, yes, it's got a slightly more pixel-dense screen, but numerous other specs on both devices are actually quite similar. There are also stereo front-facing speakers and an extra front-facing camera on both devices. I'll test the Google Pixel 3 to see if it can knock the Note 9 out, but the iPhone XS Max couldn't. In fact, it doesn't bring numerous Pixel 3 features, including Playground. This may not sound like anything too special, but Google tries to compensate with software gimmickry. Top shots pre-emptively capture images from a few moments before and after you press the shutter button, then suggests "better" versions of the image you actually captured.

The new large-sized displays and other features of the smartphones are definitely the aspects that will draw maximum attention.

Plenty of details about the new smartphones have appeared online, although Google has sought to poke fun at the rumours. It has also improved HDR on the Pixel 3, especially in low-light, with the Night Sight feature, so that you won't have to worry about getting a really dark photo, or ruining it with using the flash on your phone.

You can purchase the 3rd Gen Chromecast from the Google Store here. With 293ppi in its locker, Google is claiming the Pixel Slate has the sharpest picture in its class.

In real teams that might not make a huge difference to your day-to-day experience with the Pixel 3, but as we progress into 2019, this phone might begin to feel a little more dated. That's going to be excellent for price conscious consumers, but keep in mind that you're not going to get stellar productivity from a Celeron CPU with 4GB of RAM in 2018. Adding those differences up, the full Surface Pro 6 package should be $170 cheaper than a Pixel Slate + keyboard combo. Both are available first in English.

With Google's new Live Albums feature, also available on Home Hub, you can "enjoy a constantly updating stream of photos of the people and pets you care about and skip blurry ones and duplicates", Bonner wrote. If you're all about the highest-quality audio, you'll want to pick up a USB-C adapter - but you'll want to make sure it's compatible with this device specifically before you do. "You already have a screen", Ross says.

The phone's Google Assistant will also screen spam calls and let you block callers, or answer calls itself and produce a real-time transcription of the conversation, a feature that will get patched into previous Pixel models later this year. Trust us, when it comes to taking group selfies, whoever is holding the Pixel will be doing the honours, and we're expecting great things here.
