The third generation of Pixel phones, which was also unveiled Tuesday at an event in NY, features screens that span from one edge to another. That's impossible to gauge at this stage, though. After a slew of leaks, rumours and speculations the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL were finally revealed by the company. The 2160 x 1080 OLED of the Pixel 3 is not graced with a notch, but it does have very large bezels at both the top and the bottom. And there's also Flip to Shhh, which will mute notifications if you set the phone screen down.

There is still a single rear camera on both phones. If you look really carefully, you'll see that the glass strip has some slightly different curved detailing at the edges and that the camera and LED flash unit have swapped places.

We've teamed up with Mobile Phones Direct to offer an incredible 100GB data Pixel 3 deal with unlimited calls and texts, and there's absolutely nothing to pay upfront.

With its access to your email, calendar, entertainment, and suite of Nest and Home devices, Google stands in a key position to attack the competition in the home device wars against Apple, Amazon, and now Facebook, which just launched a home device, Portal.

Google shipped 2.53 million Pixel 2 and 2 XL devices through the nine months ended June 30, garnering less than 1 percent of the global market for smartphones, according to research firm Strategy Analytics. The devices offer the latest in terms of processor, making use of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 and pack 4GB RAM. Verizon mistakenly listed the Pixel 3's price on its website a few hours ago, but it wasn't the only retailer eager to kick off Pixel 3 sales.

The Pixel 3 has a 2915mAh battery and the Pixel 3 XL has a 3450mAh battery. The battery has a larger 3.450mAh capacity.

On the subject of other wireless chargers: the Pixel Stand's price of $US80 is significantly higher than that of other top wireless chargers.

Despite rumors, Google did not announce new wireless Pixel Buds at the Tuesday event.

The Pixel line-up is known for its AI-enabled camera performance and Pixel 3 and 3 XL take it a bit further.

Google opted not to put a camera on the Home Hub at all, whereas other smart displays do have that feature for video calling.

Another concern is that Google made no reference at all to improvements to its HDR+ algorithm.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, with screen sizes of 5.5 inches and 6.3 inches, respectively, feature high-tech cameras that automatically capture successive photos to recommend the best shot, such as those in which individuals are smiling with their eyes open and facing the camera. Google is adding editable depth of field to its already superb portrait mode. When you point your camera at information you want to remember or don't feel like typing in - like a URL or QR code on a flyer or an email address on a business card - Google Lens suggests what to do next, like creating a new contact.

When it comes to software, once again, there's nothing surprising here.

How much is the Pixel Slate going to cost?

The smaller Pixel 3 is a big step up from last year's Pixel 2.

But the main features aren't hardware, they're software, and Google has gone all out in new software.

The third major new Chrome OS feature is a streamlined split-screen view.
