Hands-On With Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel Slate And Google Home Hub
Starting off with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, these Android Pie smartphones have 5.5- and 6.3-inch displays respectively and are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processors paired with 4GB of RAM. The phones are available in 64GB or 128GB storage configurations, and a single 12.2MP rear camera (which is augmented by Google's excellent Pixel Visual Core) is joined on the frontside by dual selfie cameras. Prices for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL start at $799 and $899 respectively.
Moving on to the Pixel Slate, this is a 12.3-inch "Molecular Display" Chrome OS tablet that is powered by Intel processors (Celeron on entry-level models, which grow in potency to 8thgeneration Core m3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors depending on how much you're willing to pay). The Pixel Slate starts at $599 for a Celeron processor, 4GB RAM and 32GB storage. The range topping model with a Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM and 256GB storage rings in at $1,599. You can also add the optional Pixel Slate Keyboard for $199 or the Pixelbook Pen for $99.
Finally, there's the Google Home Hub, which gives the Google Assistant a face. The device comes with a 7-inch touch display and serves as the "hub" for your smart home. Unlike other similar devices, the Google Home Hub doesn't have a camera, so score one for those concerned about an always-connected digital appliance spying on everything that goes on in your house.
