Not only do flagship handsets like the Galaxy S9 and LG G7 have much better screen-to-body ratios, but even smartphones such as the Honor 7X and Nokia 7.1 that range from $199 to $350 look like gadgets from the distant future compared to the Pixel 2.

For starters, the Pixel 3 XL's packaging has made its way to the web.

Google will be unveiling Pixel Slate on October 9. More information on it would follow as the device goes on show tomorrow. The renders of the rumored tablet have also leaked. It is expected that the rumoured "Pink Sand" colour model will be called "Not Pink".

If we believe the rumours, the Pixel 3 family will come in 6.2-inch QHD+ (1440×2880 pixels) and a 5.5-inch display size options.

Though the launch has yet to take place, this unreleased device came fully-boxed and seems legitimate, particularly considering its steep price tag of HK$15,880 (about $2030 USD). It will be fuelled by a 3,430mAh battery. The two phones will be functionally almost identical, the only major difference between them being size. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will pack the Snapdragon 845 under the hood, and they will come with 4GB of RAM along with either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. It measures 145.6x68.2x7.9mm and weighs 148 grams. Google announced that the first Smart Displays with Assistant built-in will begin shipping in July.

For more news and updates, follow IRN Post on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. The alleged United Kingdom prices of both the handsets have also been detailed in the images.

The Pixel Slate was codenamed Nocturne or Atlas, according to a video leak (shown below), and is expected to be the follow-up act to the Pixelbook.

As mentioned, the advertisement hints at the company's camera strategy on this lineup.

Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are to have "Super Selfie Mode" feature. Notably, the ad also mentions a "groupie selfies" feature.

In fact, at the time of the initial review, the camera testing firm said: "The Google Pixel 2 is the top-performing mobile device camera we've tested, with a record-setting overall score of 98".

While no price is listed in this alleged marketing material, it looks like the Home Hub should launch on October 22 (in the United Kingdom, at least). A detachable keyboard accessory will also be launching alongside the Pixel Slate, as well as Google's own stylus for touchscreen input. Folks at Engadget got hold of one of the units for an early hands-on. Both smartphones are expected to run out-of-the-box. On the other hand, the Pixel 3 XL has the slim side bezels along with a chin along the bottom to house a front-facing speaker.
