Because the design team learned that many people leave their phones on their nightstand to charge, the Stand enables a new setting in the Pixel 3 that mimics sunrise alarm clocks, slowly turning the screen from deep red to a bright yellow to wake you up.

As to how good the Hub is, we'd have to wait when there are actual units to review.

The new Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL. The Pixel 3 has a smaller 5.5-inch screen, whereas the Pixel 3 XL has a 6.9-inch notched display.

One word comes to mind when I think of the Pixel's camera: Reliable. Even better, this feature is coming to older Pixel devices soon, too.

Talking about hardware, both smartphones will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB / 128GB and possibly 256GB or 512GB storage options. No matter, we have all the official details and availability info now.

It has a 12.2-megapixel sensor. If you feel the need to jot something down, the Pixel Slate also works with the Chromebook Pen ($99).

While most phones have some form of call screening, Google today announced its Duplex AI would do even more to save you from having to deal with pesky telemarketers.

The search giant said Monday its new tablet is part of the company's lineup of Pixel-branded hardware, including the Pixel smartphone and Pixelbook laptop.

In just two short years Google has produced what's arguably the best smartphone camera on the market - and it's done it by using one camera, not two as is the case with its competitors. The other software-based features remain unchanged. Since then, Google has invested more heavily in its "Made by Google" device lineup, which includes everything from virtual reality headsets to video and audio streaming devices.

Pixel phones should get wireless charging with a new Pixel Stand charger. The Pixel 3 design easily lags behind Samsung's. The company is launching its new Pixel Slate, a premium Chromebook tablet that's supposed to compete with the likes of Microsoft's Surface Pro and Apple's iPad Pro. This time around we see a full edge-to-edge iPhone X-style screen on the Pixel 3 XL, while the Pixel 2 XL's rounded edge screen makes its way over to the Pixel 3.

The upgraded version of Google's Home speaker comes with a touchscreen tablet. The most expensive Pixel Slate will cost $1,599 and contain 16GB RAM, a 256GB SSD, and a more powerful 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor.

Google has backed off on Android tablets, but it's going all-in with Chrome OS tablets. The display has a resolution of 2960×1440, and it's also OLED. It has dual front-facing speakers, but there's no headphone jack. It will be possible to display not just photos from Google Photos but also the video feed from a Nest Doorbell along with many other uses.

Like the current Google Home devices, it has multiple user recognition so can determine whether it's you or your significant other that wants to create a calendar reminder and saves it accordingly.

The Chromecast is due for a refresh, and it may come with Wi-Fi improvements, along with Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) connectivity, and support for remote control, game controllers, to name a few.
