Google is all set to host its third hardware event tomorrow in NY wherein the tech giant is rumoured to launch the next generation Pixel 3 devices along with host of new products. Pixel 3 will be available in three color options - Just Black, Clearly White, and Not Pink. The all-new design of the retail box of the Google Pixel 3 XL device which also shows two-tone design along with 3 XL name and the logo "G" of Google. However, a Pixel 3 XL unit abandoned in a Lyft cab by a Google employee (it sounds outrageous, but a Lyft driver became an unlikely leakster) showed the Pixel 3 XL retain the chassis of its predecessor.

The Google Pixel 3 is undoubtedly one of the worst kept secrets in recent times. The Google Pixel 3 will have a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 2160 pixels, while the Pixel 3 XL will feature a larger 6.3-inch notched display with 1440 x 2880 pixels. 9to5Google obtained details about the new software tricks that are bundled with the new cameras, including Top Shot, Photobooth, Super res zoom, and others.

The event is taking place in NY, instead of San Francisco. Google launched its line of high-end phones two years ago to better compete against Apple, Samsung and other device makers. The following image lists all the Pixel 3 features compared to the Pixel 2 and original Pixel.

The first Pixel devices reached 2.4 million shipments in the nine months ended June 30, 2017, the firm said. Last year, the Pixel 2 came with a standard 16:9 display, whereas the Pixel 3 is expected to embrace the 18:9 aspect ratio.

It'll feature a Chromebook tablet that attaches to a separate keyboard, according to photos from MySmartPrice, which has accurately leaked Google launches in the past. The review also reveals that both the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL will come with squeezing the edge feature which will work similar to the HTC's Edge sensor feature.

Instead of a metallic keyboard, this year there will be a keyboard cover like the one for the iPads.

Another day, and yet another leak for an upcoming Google product.

The Pixel Slate will be presented together with the Pixel 3 smartphones on the evening of October 9th.

It also features wireless charging and two 8 megapixel front-facing camera.

However, several rumours and speculations will be put to rest as Google will be revealing the next-gen Pixel 3 smartphones globally.

The specs confirm support for dual-band (2.4GHx/5GHz) Wi-Fi, as well as Bluetooth.
