From its Made By Google event in New York, Google debuted slew of new products, including the Pixel 3 smartphone, Pixel Slate tablet, and the Google Home Hub.

Starting with the Pixel 3: Googles newest smartphone is available in standard and XL versions. Both iterations feature a larger screen than their predecessors. For the standard, that means a 5.5-inch display, while on the XL, you get a significantly larger 6.3-inch screen. Apart from size, both displays are the same in terms of design and interface: a full-screen, flexible OLED that offers an edge-to-edge experience. The Pixel 3 also packs plenty of other flagship-worthy specsthe latest Android OS, a Snapdragon 845 CPU, wireless charging support, etc.but the biggest highlight is the upgrade to what was already considered one of the best smartphone cameras on the market. This improved setup includes a rear 12.2MP dual-pixel lens and two front-facing shooters that are supported by a bevy of new software and features, including new modes such as Top Shot, Super Res Zoom, and Night Sight. Images from the camera are just now hitting the Web, but if whats been shown is a true indicator of the cameras potential, then look for the Pixel to rank among the worlds best smartphone cameras once again.
