In contrast to Pixel C, the new Google tablet also appears to have a fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button. Another new device that is now expected to get unveiled tomorrow is the Google Pixel Slate. Those that are out of warranty, the app will give an estimated value of the amount charged for the fix.

The Pixel Slate will be presented together with the Pixel 3 smartphones on the evening of October 9th. The Pixel Slate, which was known under the codename "Nocturne", has been subject of numerous leaks - just like many other soon to be released Google devices. We essentially know everything the company is planning to unveil tomorrow.

However, it looks like Google had one trick up their sleeve as we move closer to the event. Under the hood, both the smartphones are likely to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 SoC clubbed with a 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal memory.

The Pixel 3 XL is being sold for HK$15,880 or about US$2,030.

Lastly, the Made by Google on Instagram has the design mockups of a "tiny phone" that is pointing at the Pixel Ultra, which was speculated to come as the new notch-less Pixel phone.

Like the Pixelbook from a year ago, the Pixel Slate seems to be equipped with 3:2 aspect ratio display.

The Engadget editor also mentions the single 12.2MP rear camera and dual 8MP front-facing camera on the Pixel device. There's also speculation around it having 16GB of RAM and an Intel i7 processor.

An exclusive report by MySmartPrice revealed the first images of the Pixel Slate, which will be Google's first Chrome OS tablet and its challenger to Microsoft's Surface Pro line. Similar to any other smart home speaker device, the Google Home Hub will be able to take voice-based commands and respond to it. The updated Chromecast will sport an enhanced design on the outside, as well as improved WiFi and support for Bluetooth.

Nowadays, every phone leaks (often extensively) ahead of its official reveal, but it's not often that we see full reviews of new phones posted online days before they've even been announced.
