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

But we kind of did.

The third generation of Pixel phones, which was also unveiled Tuesday at an event in NY, features screens that span from one edge to another.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XLThe latest Pixel phone lineup. Because of that, the focus of the Pixel 3 reveal was on the new features primarily, specifically those related to the camera. 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 Pixel 3 XL proudly sports its notch, but it's notably missing from the standard-sized Pixel 3, instead having a solid black bar across the top of the phone. Both the devices come with the same spec sheet which includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB storage. Photo by Alex Coop. Buyers will get six months of free YouTube Music service. The price of the new Google Pixel Slate starts at $599. The phones will be available for sale starting 1 November.

Google spent the bulk of the phone portion of the event talking about the devices' new camera.

Moreover it comes with a trackpad and a stand to adjust the angle of the Pixel Slate. I spent some time with the Pixel 3 XL, and here's what I think about the 6.3-inch smartphone. The power button has a fingerprint scanner as well. Lots of devices that've abandoned the headphone jack were released over the past couple of years with no reasonable wired alternative. "It's bigger than the vast majority of detachable keyboard trackpads out there", Janofsky said.

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

The Google Home Hub is priced at $149.

Users can also add animated stickers to photos that imitate the expressions of the subject.

What's most interesting perhaps is the absence of a camera.

Google started talking about Assistant on smart displays earlier this year, but it was not the first company to launch such a device.

"We wanted to build hardware as inspiring as what we'd done with the operating system", Ben Janofsky, senior product manager at Google, told Mic in a phone interview. The Hub features a 7-inch LCD touchscreen display, a "full-range" speaker and Bluetooth 5.0 support. Google said its new "Super Res Zoom" is flawless for capturing great photos at a distance without compromising quality or resolution when zooming in.

Ultimately, Google sees the Pixel being useful for a wide swath of users, from college students to traveling professionals, according to Janofsky. As far as the camera goes, both devices have a 12.2MP single-lens rear camera with a f/1.8 aperture and 1.4μm.
