Google Launches New Phones and Other 2018 Devices

Four new breakthrough products, which are a fusion of AI, software and hardware, were highlighted at the recently concluded Made by Google event in New York.

What stirred up the crowd, as news about them leaked out prior to the event, were the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones. Both share the same features except that the latter has a bigger screen.

Not only are the phones slim and lightweight, but they also boast louder speakers and better pixel display than their predecessor.

The camera of the Pixel 3 is a standout. In fact Google has partnered with famed photographers, such as Annie Leibovitz, and media company Condé Nast who’ll be using the new phone for their upcoming projects.

The Pixel 2 held the crown amongst smartphones for the market leading camera last year and it looks like they are not willing to lose that crown any time soon.

Aside from the Pixel 3 phones, Google also unveiled Pixel Slate, an upgraded version of its Pixelbook which combines the characteristics of a desktop, laptop and tablet.

It runs Chrome OS with the Google Assistant integrated into it, hence the ability of a user to make voice commands.

Meanwhile, the Google Home Hub is the tech company’s advanced solution for managing one’s smart home.

It allows you to set up your smart devices and control them from a single screen, so working with various apps is now a thing of the past.

Aside from being able to monitor your home with ease, you can also rely on Google Home Hub to help around the house as it has a built-in voice recognition facility.

Google said these products will be available later this year on Google Play and at major retailers in the U.S., Canada and the UK.
