Pixel 3 doesn’t have a second rear camera because it’s ‘unnecessary’: Google

  • Google Pixel Slate

The Google Pixel 3 has just been released and its new launcher, version v9-4902955, is now available. In terms of design, the main body of each case is a transparent shell that shows off the phone underneath, coupled with a "color pop" outer ring.

The most exciting of the new features coming to the old Pixel phones is probably Night Sight. Google launched its Google Pixel in October 2016 with 12 MP camera and from then it is moving towards becoming better and best. This new Pixel 3 feature will come to both the original Pixel and Pixel 2 phones "in the coming weeks". From the demonstration, it looked like a total sampling of 13 photos per each shutter snap, but Top Shot technology may have even captured way more.

LG noted its MC unit sales "declined QoQ and YoY due to stagnating smartphone market and decreasing sales of mid to low-end smartphones in North and Latin America", and blamed its collapse in profits on "decreased QoQ and YoY due to smartphone sales decline and increase in marketing expense to support new flagship product".

Google from their "Made by Google" keynote has stepped into the land of tablet/laptop hybrid computers much like the Microsoft Surface with it's latest 2-in-1 device the Google Slate.

Google Pixel Slate is equipped with two USB-C ports that can be harnessed to charge the device.

If you're more into self-portraits, there's another feature called Photobooth.

"A Few New Things Made By Google" was big news for tech watchers as Google, and a reminder that Google - once on the service end - is a fully established hardware marketer too.


The feature would essentially allow the Google Assistant to answer and screen questionable phone calls, transcribing responses to let you know if you should go ahead with the call or just ignore it.

Unlike its competitors, Google said its Home Hub, priced at $149, does not have a video conferencing camera. Now the "More" option is listed below which includes AR Stickers, Google Lens, and Settings. Other phone makers sometimes crowd out Google's apps with their own or take a share of ad revenue, hurting Alphabet's profits.

Here's what we know so far. Google previously destroyed any real hope for Nest by taking it over and seeking to align it with its true vision of Android.

Interestingly, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL come with two cameras on the front. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are. Or some of Google's fancy new AI and machine learning features.

Google faced a fresh privacy backlash Tuesday over a glitch that may have exposed data from half a million users, overshadowing the Silicon Valley's launch of a new smartphone and other devices. In this article I'll be comparing the new handset with its predecessor, the Pixel 2, to find out.

The Pixel 3 faces continued limited sales in the United States since Google again signed an exclusive distribution deal with wireless carrier Verizon Communications Inc. that means the device will get little marketing from other carriers.
