Pixel camera app to score a long-awaited feature on October 18

Google reveals promotional videos for its new line of products for 2018 Samsung is trolling Google over the notch on its new Pixel phone

To begin with, the Pixel 3 happens to be the more affordable of the Pixel 3 duo, just as the iPhone XS is among the two iPhone offerings.

As per Android Central, new Pixel phones were rumoured to focus on gesture navigation, bar the centre "pill" and a back button, which only appears when necessary.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be the first Pixel phones to launch in France at the same time as the US, FrAndroid explains. While the Pixel 3 starts at United States dollars 799 in the U.S., which means a USD 150 hike from the Pixel 2's launch price of USD 649.

Android is the most popular mobile operating system out there, but Google didn't utter the word "Android" on stage even once. That's the case with these new phones. This is admirable as Android phones don't get the latest Android OS for months after each release. The new Pixel phones are expected to follow the trend of expanding the phone screen almost to the edges of the device. "There's even a new feature known as 'Call Screen" that will answer calls for you, transcribe the conversation, and let you choose to join the call, hang up, or send it to and report as spam.

Google unveiled its latest phone - along with a new smart-home device and a new tablet - at an event on Tuesday. For instance, the new Pixel phones support wireless charging.

Given that it's a premium phone, however, it's only natural to compare it with its most recent competition on the other side of the aisle: Apple's iPhone XS. What's maybe more important, though, is the fact that these real-time translations aren't a Pixel phone exclusive either. The Pixel 3 comes in three colors: Just Black, Clearly White, and Not Pink.

Again, here is a story of both contrasts and commonality with both the iPhone and Pixel devices having a common camera setup across the range.

Both devices have high-end selfie cameras too, though the Pixel 3's has two lenses. However, their ecosystem has grown substantially in the a year ago alone. On the other hand, the Pixel 3 XL goes edge-to-edge with 82% screen to body ratio with its huge notch. Both devices are getting price hikes this year.

Predictably, Samsung has taken aim at the notch at the top of the screen on the Google Pixel 3 XL. The only ones that gained some popularity were the Google Nexus phones, particularly, the Nexus 5.
