Google Chromecast 2018 launched with minor design, specs upgrade

The much-awaited event to announce a slew of products by Google was held in NY on Tuesday and leading the pack were undoubtedly the Google Pixel smartphones, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

Keeping up with Apple, Google has launched their most awaited Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL, which reportedly has exclusive features only to the new phones. Google Pixel 3 XL & Pixel 3 Officially Launched; Prices Starts From USD 799.

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.

The Always On display switches to a different view, which allows at-a-glance info (your schedule and more) as well as giving you easy access to the Google Assistant.

Tech, luxury goods lead Wall Street slide
Futures point to a 0.5% fall for the S&P 500 , a 0.5% decline for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and a 0.7% drop for Nasdaq . Japan's benchmark fell by an unusually wide margin of 3.9 percent and China's main index lost 4.3 percent.

Google uses the phones to highlight what it considers to be best features of its Android operating system, while challenging Apple and Samsung with a device tailored for affluent consumers.

As for the specifications, here we look at your modern Android hardware 2018: a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB and 128 GB of memory and 2.915 mAh or 3,400 mAh. It comes in three colors-Chalk, Charcoal, Aqua, and Sand.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are YouTube Signature devices. The phone is made of glass, which means that Pixel 3 phones will be the first Google Pixel phones to support wireless charging. It also has exclusive rights to sell the new colour for Pixel devices. A few months ago, Google also added a disclosure which announces Google chatbot being on the other side of the call. With the Pixel line, Google takes "pure" Android and makes subtle tweaks, mostly to the launcher, to provide a more Pixel-like experience. After lab-testing the Pixel 3 XL, they've concluded that the OLED Pixel 3 XL display has earned the "highest A+ rating" as well. At least if you have any strong feelings for or against notches and want a Google Pixel 3, you still have a choice. Moreover, Pixel Slate keyword is priced at $199 and Google Pixelbook Pen is priced at $99. It also has dual speakers at the front of the device, but no headphone jack.

Google uses its flagship phones to show off the capability of its hardware understanding and software, but it has never come close to competing with the iPhone on sales. The price has held steady at $35, and you'll still control the Chromecast exclusively with your computer or mobile device rather than a remote control.
