The tech giant is all set to take the wraps off its latest smartphones on October 9 at an event in NY. In India, Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are expected to launch in the October second week.

Google introduced two new smartphones Tuesday during a livestream event, as well as its first tablet and a new smart home device. The big "G" is expected to announce its new hardware line-up at the event but with all these leaks, we wonder if there will be any surprises left. The front facing cameras are 8-megapixel, and make it possible to take Group Selfies.

Over the weekend, because Google is really bad at keeping anything a secret, the Pixel Slate was fully revealed. The Pixel 2 XL recently received a price cut in the country to Rs. 45,499 for the base variant, while its 128GB storage variant still bears the original price.

It's not like we expect the new Chromecast to be more expensive than that, given that there are plenty of Chromecast units in use, and many Smart TVs come with Chromecast functionality built in.

When we put Unboxing photos in the limelight, we can see the last final retail box for Google Pixel XL 3, complete with "G" and "Google Pixel 3 XL." branding. That's $200 below the least expensive iPhone XS. This new feature is called Call Screen and will be available for all the Pixel devices starting next month.

But again Google is attacking its rivals on the pricing front. It costs $149 and will be available in the US, UK, and Australia on October 22.

While all those service are hugely popular, the Pixels so far have generated more media attention than sales. But Google can't seem to control these sort of leaks this year, or the stores that are supposed to sell the devices. It comes out October 18 in the United States, to be followed by launches in Canada, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, India, Taiwan, Singapore, and Japan. You can compare this with the Nexus 6P leaks where the device leaks were making the device to look very asymmetrical and bad in terms of design. Because Android highlights Google services, it's key to Google's business of selling ads through its search engine and other mobile apps. Leaks suggest it'll display the weather, map information for your commute, among other helpful Assistant features.
