With the upgraded specs and added water-resistant capabilities, these were the most successful smartphones in 2017 on par with the Apple's iPhones and the camera along with Google's machine learning and AI capabilities is still believed to be the best camera on a smartphone till date. It will be made available with Pixel 3 in United States and will come to rest of Pixel devices next month. We have come up with all the announcements of the Google Pixel 3 event, starting from the stunning Pixel 3 device to Pixel Slate and from Home Hub to Google duplex, everything is detailed here.

There's also rumours about two new colour variants-pink and aqua. The Pixel 3 is rumoured to include a 3,915mAh battery, while the Pixel 3 XL could have a 3,430mAh battery. The Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL had similar launch pricing, although we saw significant discounts for the Pixel 2 early in the device life-cycle.

Here are the key details: The Pixel 3 and 3XL run Android 9 Pie with an 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor.

The larger version will - like most other new smartphones released this year - follow Apple and other manufacturers by having a notch in order to maximise the reaches of the front display on the OLED screen.

The Pixel 3 is expected to go from a traditional, squared-off 16:9 screen to a more modern 18:9 screen with thinner bezels and rounded corners.

Google's next voice-activated device could be a smart speaker with a screen.

Previous leaks have revealed that the Pixel 3 will have a 5.5-inch FHD+ display while the Pixel 3 XL will come with a 6.2-inch QHD+ display. Other specs of Pixel 3 XL are going to be almost identical to those of the Pixel 3, like previous years.

The Pixel phones unveiled Tuesday in NY come in two different sizes, but both feature high-definition screens that span from one edge to another.

So, which of the devices are you excited the most? Another feature - Top Shot - will take a series of photos before and after a user presses the shutter button, and will present the best photo of the lot to the user. So, if you wish to grab it, you need to have a Pixel device and rest assured, Google will take care of your AI experience. Furthermore, it features Pixel Imprint™ fingerprint sensor w/ dedicated microcontroller, dual-front facing speakers and two microphones for improved noise cancellation. The company is offering the 9V/2A (18W) fast charging power adapter for wired charging. The phone supports single SIM, the body is water - and possibly dust - proof with IPX8 rating. Most rivals have more memory than the Pixel 3's 4GB of RAM, and this Pixel, like the Nexus line, has no microSD card slot. So we'll have to wait until later for confirmation, although the box still says 1080p.

Let us know, would you be interested in upgrading from Pixel 2 to Pixel 3.
