  • Google Pixel Slate renders appear to reveal design, detachable keyboard and stylus

Google will be hosting its annual "Made by Google" event later today.

As we inch towards the end of a smartphone year, we will witness one of the last few major launches of 2018 tonight. A lot of them have made their way on the Internet with several leaks and rumours, while not much is known about the other devices.

Another day, and yet another leak for an upcoming Google product. Although the event will be live streamed, Gadgets Now will be covering it live from the venue as well.

To address the elephant in the room, this year's event is a little awkward for everyone because so much about the Pixel 3 was leaked in advance - including outright hands-on articles that we published last week. According to reports, the new Pixel 3 phones will come with better features and design improvements compared to the current Google Pixel 2-series. The Pixel 3 64GB variant was listed at CAD 999 (roughly Rs. 56,900) and CAD 1,129 (roughly Rs. 64,300) for the 128GB model. The Pixel 3 packaging was all legit, and both the device's feel and specs gave a clear impression that it wasn't a fake, not to mention lining up with all the recent leaks. Although the Geekbench entry specifies Android 9 "Pie" as the operating system, it has been stated that the tablet will utilize Chrome OS, whilst also being capable of installing and running Android apps.


Amazon launched a device previous year that displays data on a screen and it seems Google doesn't want to be left behind.

Inside the body will be integrated Wi-Fi dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz), while the software will be entrusted to Android. It may still miss out on 4K support and Amazon Prime. Several months ago he started a new Chromebook website and has spent many hours diving into Chrome OS code to find a ton of information on what we are likely to see tomorrow. This new standard powered 2.4GHz Bluetooth is a higher powered version that will let you connect keyboards or even a possible remote to the Chromecast.

Could Google really have undertaken one of the biggest covert operations ever witnessed in the mobile phone space, all so it could hide its actual real Google Pixel 3 for a dramatic, surprise reveal?
