Liveblog: Google’s Pixel 3 launch event at 11am ET Tuesday, October 9

Furthermore, the images published by MySmartPrice show the Pixel Slate with an aspect ratio of 3:2, two stereo speakers facing forward, a USB-C port and both a front and rear camera.

As mentioned, Google is all set to uncover its latest Pixel smartphones on October 9.

What can we expect on Pixel Slate? Google has gotten a ton of flack for the introduction of the notch, mainly because the Pixel 3's notch is unusually larger when compared to other devices.

Google will reveal the Pixel 3, along with what is likely to be a slew of other hardware, beginning at 11 AM on October 9. Now the new introductions will be the one advancing this series.

To begin with, the advert shows the Pixel 3 XL sporting that rather infamous notch. The new smartphones are also rumoured to come with improved cameras and have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC under the hood, along with an Adreno 630 GPU and 4GB of RAM. Visually, the Pixel 3 XL device will be slightly bigger than the Pixel 3, however, the two devices will be same in terms of functionality and specifications.

Google will officially unveil next-generation Pixel devices at an event on Tuesday, but the phone has already become the most leaked device. Also, the new Google tablet PC would boast a metallic build. After letting third parties handle the hardware for a number of years, Google is finally taking over their smart-display software and calling it Google Home Hub. Biometric authentication is also rumoured for the device.

The Pixel Slate, Google's first Chrome OS tablet, was leaked ahead of the upcoming Made by Google event. This new tablet was previously being referred to as "Nocturne", and it is going to come with Intel's Core i7 processor with up to 16GB of RAM. The image leaked also gives us an idea of how detachable keyboards work.

Google is no stranger to the tablet market. As Google pointed out at the time: "We chose to move on to the next step and offer the best Google experience, combining hardware and software under one roof". Still, there have been no words about any upgraded internal specs.
