How to watch and what to expect

Several leaks have taken place over the last couple of months and while much of the focus has been placed on the smartphone lineup, it looks like we'll be seeing a Pixel tablet this year too.

"The 3's touted big brother, rumoured as the Pixel 3 XL, is likely to boast more of a design overhaul with a notch and an edge-to-edge screen". It is called a complete Handset Retail Box in my way.

ORIGINAL STORY: Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are set to replace both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL as Google's leading flagship Android smartphone this afternoon.

However, Singtel revealed that they will carry the Pixel 3 in 64GB, and the Pixel 3 XL in 64GB and 128GB, and pre-orders begin on 10 October.

Both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be available for preorder starting today, with a price tag of $799.99 and $899.99 respectively. Based on all the leaks so far, you can expect three colours on offer - Clearly White, Just Black and a new pink sand. However, it also brings numerous Google Home Hub features to your phone.

Elsewhere, Google is widely-tipped to unveil a ChromeOS tablet, Pixel Slate.

Another upgrade compared to the predecessor on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is going to be the presence of wireless charging capability. As the advert mentions a feature called Top Shot mode, which will notify users of closed eyes and other flaws while capturing selfies. The 2-in-1 tablet will also come with a portable keyboard case, and it will work with Pixel Book pen. The phones will also ship with Android 9 Pie.

Google Pixel phones have been praised all over due to their camera prowess and their use of computational photography (their epic HDR+). Here's how to ensure you get your device on launch day.

The tablet sports a 12.3-inch display with a 3000 x 2000 screen resolution. It can connect with your smart devices, but unlike its competitors, it doesn't contain a camera, which is probably a good thing considering these announcements came right after a massive Google+ data breach was reported.
