Google unveils new Pixel smartphone at 10 media events around the world

But the Pixel 3 wasn't the only thing Google was excited about unveiling; it also took the wraps off its first ever 2-in-1 tablet running Chrome OS.

But is there really a demand for smaller handsets when everyone is going big? The Pixel 3 XL proudly sports its notch, but it's notably missing from the standard-sized Pixel 3, instead having a solid black bar across the top of the phone.

Best Buy is a massive retailer partner to have on board for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, but unfortunately, the partnership is only to sell the phones as "Verizon" devices.

The Pixel 3 has a 5.5-inch 18:9 screen with a 1080 x 2160 resolution. As such, at first glance it looks as though it could have done more to give you a little more display. Not to forget, the maximum onboard storage you get with these phones is "just" 128GB. This is an all-glass smartphone yet at the back of the device it has a slightly matte finish.

The following Pixel 3 plans are the most affordable with at least 10GB of data per month. Adding those differences up, the full Surface Pro 6 package should be $170 cheaper than a Pixel Slate + keyboard combo. What's important is that the ppi - pixels per inch - remains high so that the display is capable of showing fine details. It has dual front-facing speakers, but there's no headphone jack.

Google began receiving orders for the Pixel 3 series through its website on Wednesday, while Japanese mobile phone carriers SoftBank Corp and NTT Docomo Inc. will start taking reservations on October 19 for the new smartphone series to be launched on November 1. As detailed in this recent article Bixby serves as a personal assistant to help you use the hardware while Google is an incredible search assistant. We've been impressed with all the Snapdragon 845 devices we've seen in 2018, but we're acutely aware that the next generation of hardware is just around the corner. One of those, like last year's Duplex, sees Google handling phone calls on your behalf. If accurate, that's when the Pixel 3 should be available in stores across the world. Google declined to address that further Tuesday, though executives emphasized privacy and security throughout the event in NY.

Also, it's not immediately clear if you need the Pixel Stand to access this alarm clock mode, or if it will work with any wireless charger.

The 64GB Pixel 3 will start at $799 or $33.29 per month with Google Store financing.

The main attraction, however, will be Google's smartphone. It's still listed as AR Stickers here.

A new artificial intelligence tool sure to generate buzz among consumers also could be helpful. The Home Hub brings that to the next level with Google Photos Live Albums, which automatically uploads your photos to your Home Hub to show you a constantly-changing slideshow. While Google's phones have some compelling features, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is still the better phone for the enterprise.

But again Google is attacking its rivals on the pricing front.
