Instead of a thick hardware keyboard magnetically attached to the bottom edge of the device, as we saw with the Pixel C, this year Google seems to be putting on a cover with an integrated, attachable keyboard, which can be connected to the tablet via four pins.
The latest shows the forthcoming Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL handsets in their entire glory. It had announced Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL on 4th October and were made available for pre-order in India on 26th October.
The Pixel Slate comes with a 12.3-inch touchscreen LTPS display offering a screen resolution of 3,000 X 2,000 pixels.
Google's October 9 hardware event is approaching quickly, and over the past few weeks, rumours about what new devices Google will be announcing have been at a fever pitch.
Google also rolled out a new device called Home Hub that couples a small display screen with an internet-connected speaker. Furthermore, it features Pixel Imprint™ fingerprint sensor w/ dedicated microcontroller, dual-front facing speakers and two microphones for improved noise cancellation. The existing Pixel lineup is known for taking the best selfies in the business and it is no surprise that Google would like to take this further.
The Pixel 3 series will only have iterative upgrades over the previous generation. The Pixel 3 has a 2915mAh batter while the Pixel 3XL has a larger 3430mAH and of course they don't feature headphone jacks because that is for budget phones now.
The phone runs on the latest Android 9.0 Pie.
The Google Pixel Slate sports dark blue color. The Pixel Mini device is tipped to be a mid-range phone that could get a Snapdragon 710 chipset as per a report by Roland Quandt of Winfuture.de. That's what the tech giant will be doing with its Google Home Hub which is the company's answer to Amazon's Echo Show.
