The Ten Best Google Pixel 3 Plans In Australia

We've teamed up with Mobile Phones Direct to offer an incredible 100GB data Pixel 3 deal with unlimited calls and texts, and there's absolutely nothing to pay upfront. The company spent plenty of time during its press conference in New York City on Tuesday detailing the many exciting new software features packed into its new phones, but Google obviously didn't have time to cover everything during its 90 minute presentation.

No Android here, unfortunately, but it does look like Google's crafted something pretty remarkable. These phones are more expensive than last year's Pixels.

Google Pixel 3 XL: What else is new? Google lets you squeeze to activate Google Assistant, but there are more options and capability with the edge panels on the Note 9.

Preorders for both smartphones began Tuesday, but both will officially launch October 18.

Leave it to Google to zig when we expect it to zag. Understandably, this was done for the sake of privacy, however, Lenovo cleverly used a "privacy shutter" in their Smart Display to hide the camera when not in use, which Google certainly could have done. Loup Ventures estimates that while Amazon will have 52 per cent of the market this year and Google will reach 28 per cent, Google will surpass Amazon by 2021 with 48 per cent versus 37 per cent.

But again Google is attacking its rivals on the pricing front.

The Google Camera update for the Pixel 3 has been extracted, and you can now install it on your smartphone to take advantage of the new features that are coming in the Pixel 3's camera.

The company hosted 10 media events around the world for the announcements, a hint that it is prepared to expand geographic distribution of the phone line it hopes someday is as popular as Apple Inc's iPhone.

The Google Pixel 3 XL is priced at $899 for 64GB and $999 for 128GB while the Note 9 128GB is priced at $1099.

Google branched into hardware three years ago so that, like Apple, it could have full control of the performance of its applications and the revenue they generate. The new Pixel will also feature dual front-facing cameras that will allow for wide-angle selfies.

The new Pixel 3 piggybacks on this by offering a second front-facing camera that Google says will replace the selfie-stick, and better low light photography, zoom, depth of field customization, automatic photo-booth features - photo is taken with each facial expression - and the ability to change the timing in case someone blinked.

The Hub is a Smart Display by Google that integrates Google Photos, a visual version of the Google Assistant, YouTube, and other services.

There were also some non-camera related features announced.

The Pixel 3 faces continued limited sales in the United States since Google again signed an exclusive distribution deal with wireless carrier Verizon Communications Inc that means the device will get little marketing from other carriers. There are new Pixel phones, a smart display, and a new Chrome OS tablet. The device costs US$599, or US$798 including the optional attachable keyboard. The keyboard will be an additional £189/$199 and the pen will be £79/$99.
