Is Google Ditching Android?

Is Google Ditching Android?

Google is utilizing the smarts from its Duplex technology, which dispatches a virtual assistant to make eerily human-sounding calls for you, to launch a new call-screening feature on the Pixel 3.

Google mastered data mining. We're still not entirely sure how it knows the difference between pretty ugly and real ugly. This is an especially hot topic considering the fact that Google added a dual-lens camera to the front of both phones.

But this time around Google also has another camera to play with.

Somewhat unsurprisingly, both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are powered by a Snapdragon 845 Octa-core (4×2.5 GHz Kryo 385 Gold & 4×1.6 GHz Kryo 385 Silver) processor and Adreno 630. That would probably save us a whole lot of time while trying to take the flawless squad photo. And with a 99 Dollars price cut and numerous same software updates that will grace the Pixel 3/3 XL it makes a good case for itself. The other is the ability to use the Assistant without unlocking your phone. That being said, Google can hook you up with an adapter that will allow you to use conventional 3.5mm headphones.

With the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, Google is taking a step closer to making the Pixel line into something as lovely as it is functional. According to an Android Police report, the Google Camera application accompanies a few changes from the current application on past Pixel handsets. The 64GB Pixel 2 XL goes for $22.91 per month for 24 months ($549) while the 128GB version goes for $27.07/month.

Flip to Shhh is one other neat Pixel 3 trick, that lets you flip over the phone to kill notifications.

The phone also packs a special security chip called Titan M, meant to protect users from malware and other digital threats, and securing the operating system and your passwords.

As leaked images of the new phones revealed before the #MadebyGoogle launch event, the Pixel 3 XL now has a "notch"-a cut-out at the top of the display where the phone's front facing cameras live". So while we all knew not only was the Pixel 3 coming, but numerous specs as well.

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.

Thinking about getting a Pixel 3, then you'll also want to pick up the accessory announce for it with the Pixel Stand.

Google Assistant was first available on phones, so it's no surprise there's more coming even above and beyond the new redesign that's rolling out.
