The notch in the Pixel 3 XL is also reported to be bigger than any other smartphones with the same screen format. For photography, the devices are rumoured to come with dual 8MP sensors on the front and a 12MP snapper on the back with LED flash.

At the event, Google's main focus will be on the new Pixel phones. A couple of weeks ago, I posted the latest findings on this device, but with the event being held tomorrow we now know even more. While we have a pretty good idea of what announcements to expect, the most obvious are the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones.

Specs wise, the Pixel 3 XL will sport a Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB RAM, a 12.2MP camera on the back, two 8MP front cameras (yes, two), and a 2960×1440 OLED screen.

Wired Pixel Buds, which will come with the new Pixel 3 smartphones. Now, an entirely new set of leaks has had time to swirl around the web and give us further information on Google's next XL handset.

Google can identify your pets in pictures, create augmented reality with a single rear camera, and isolate individual voices in a crowd.

Over the weekend, because Google is really bad at keeping anything a secret, the Pixel Slate was fully revealed.

First of all, it will be the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL that are sure to be unveiled. Tech blog MySmartPrice, which has accurately leaked Google products in the past, obtained the photos and details about the new device.

Starting with the keyboard, this accessory reminds us of the various keyboards Microsoft and Apple have released for the Surface computers and iPad Pros. It features a keyboard with circular keys, Google Assistant button, and pins that will allow the Slate to dock. The tablet also comes with a stylus, which will be a refreshed version of the Pixelbook Pen. The new wireless pad is said to come with the 2A/9V rating similar to Samsung's take on wireless charging. We'll only have to wait two days for the official announcement. All of that will change with the launch of the Home Hub, a 7-inch smart display powered by the Assistant from Google itself. Google just announced a new color for the Google Home Mini, aqua, to match a rumored new "mint" color for the Pixel 3, so that may be a sign not to expect any major redesigns.

Google is set to unveil its product range for the year on Tuesday in New York City.

A report from 9to5Google suggests that Google is working on an upgrade to Pixelbook with a 4K display. The company says "it uses artificial intelligence to analyze all the content published to the web at any moment, and organize all of those articles, videos, and more into storylines".

A slightly redesigned Chromecast streaming device. The updated Chromecast will sport an enhanced design on the outside, as well as improved WiFi and support for Bluetooth. For some time now, the device has been discontinued.

Of course, we already know that a Chromecast is coming thanks to a Best Buy employee selling one to a customer.
