Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL REVEALED: UK release, price and specs detailed

Like the new iPhone XS and XS Max, the new GooglePixel 3 and Pixel 3XL allow you to adjust the blurriness of the background after shooting Portrait Mode photos. Alphabet generated $4.4 billion in the second quarter from this category, up 37 percent from a year earlier. But today at Google's yearly hardware event, the company took a slightly different tack.
Google showed off one especially impressive feature that its Assistant app can perform: Call screening, which can screen a phone call for you if you don't recognize a number. The device, priced at $149, won't be a video-chatting hub like Amazon's product and Facebook's new Portal speaker, unveiled Monday.
As to whether this gives Google an edge over Amazon in the battle for the smart home ecosystem: right now, it probably does, but just a little.
What Google, Amazon, and Apple are able to do, which nearly no other company can, is combine enough products and services that a standalone hub starts to make sense on its own, rather than be just an additional expense for convenience.
Google spent the bulk of the phone portion of the event talking about the devices' new camera. Google's new smartphones will set you back £739 and £839 respectively. The Pixel 3 phone has a 5.5-inch display and the Pixel 3 XL has a display size of 6.3 inches. This echoes some of what Apple announced with the new iPhones and ushers in the possibility that phones are in a post-megapixel landscape. The new flagship devices are available in three cheekily named colors: Just Black, Clearly White, and Not Pink. Googleclaims this makes it the best low-light camera on the market, but we'll have to wait until we get one in for review to really make that decision.
Because the design team learned that many people leave their phones on their nightstand to charge, the Stand enables a new setting in the Pixel 3 that mimics sunrise alarm clocks, slowly turning the screen from deep red to a bright yellow to wake you up.
While Google's phones have larger screens, they do look similar to their predecessors except for fully glass backs. And it has no problems charging the phone inside a case. One of them transcribes voicemails in real time, so users can decide whether to pick up the call or keep ignoring it.
I got a chance to briefly test out the new Chrome OS features, which will arrive in version 71, and it's clear that they could be the Pixel Slate's key advantage over the excellent and well-established Microsoft Surface Pro and the Apple iPad Pro.
Our only beef, is that Pixel Stand, as the name suggests, is created to hold the phone upright. The tablet is also compatible with a smart pen which will also cost you an additional $99.
