Google reveals promotional videos for its new line of products for 2018

Google has finally introduced wireless charging into its phones with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, and as such, the firm has also debuted its Pixel Stand wireless charger.

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

The Home Hub has a 7-inch touch screen, but you can interact with it entirely by voice.

You can purchase the Google Home Hub from the Google Store here. That means you can start your day with tailored information on the day's weather, your commute, upcoming calendar meetings and anything else you've set up the Hub to remind you about.

As per a Wired report, Google Duplex will intially only be able to call restaurants without online booking systems.

Google reveals promotional videos for its new line of products for 2018

This includes a new smart video speaker, the Home Hub, that will compete with Amazon's own Echo Show device and the Facebook Portal home camera, which was revealed on Monday.

The camera, for instance, promises better low-light and close-up shots by using software to combine multiple shots taken in succession.

Live albums is a feature that automatically adds photos of people and pets to an album as you take them. There's also a new "Home View" UI that gives a quick overview of your smart home hardware. If you feel the need to jot something down, the Pixel Slate also works with the Chromebook Pen ($99). It runs Chrome OS on a device with a 12.3-inch display. However, Google will ship each phone with a pair of Pixel Buds USB-C earphones which supports real-time translation, Google Assistant integration, and can even read out messages and compose replies. The 128 GB storage option costs $100 more. But once you throw in the accessories, the Slate becomes a bit more pricey. However, we can expect to get more details in the days leading up to the release. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are improvements over their predecessors in literally every way. There were rumors of a secret third phone, but of course, that was nonsense. The other, Call Screen, will screen calls for users and will be made available with Pixel 3 series smartphones at launch. Both phones feature a Snapdragon 845 SoC, 4GB of RAM, and either 64 or 128GB of storage. There are also stereo front-facing speakers and an extra front-facing camera on both devices.

The move into Japan pits Google against Apple Inc.'s iPhones, which make up half of the country's market share. The 2160 x 1080 OLED panel has HDR support, and the battery clocks in at 2,915mAh. The Pixel 3 XL, on the other hand, rocks a 6.3-inch 1440 x 2960 display with a notch. It's a huge notch in this case to make room for the dual cameras. There's also a prominent "chin" at the bottom of the phone. And, yep, that Pixel 3 XL is featuring a notched display to maximize the screen real estate and create an edge to edge experience. Whether that matters to you or not probably depends on how much you crave the latest hardware.

Pixel 3 now starts at $799 ($150 more than last year) while the Pixel 3 XL starts at $899 ($50 more than last year).
