Google Pixel 3 leak reveals details along with new Google Home and Chromebook ahead of event tonight

Ahead of the official announcement tonight there’s one last round of leaks, it seems that later today Google will announce two new Pixel phones in three different colours according to images tweeted by @evleaks .

Even more ridiculously, a retailer in Hong Kong was actually selling the phone last week. The discovery by Engadget the site posted some detailed information about the phone and a video first look.

Included in the box is an 18 watt fast charger – Apple is still selling iPhones with a 5 watt charger – that should see impressively quick recharging times.

There are two front-facing cameras now too, one wide and one standard. Google still hasn’t switched to a dual camera on the back of the device though, and the fingerprint scanner is still located on the rear.

Engadget also reports that the rear camera can only shoot 4K video at 30fps – half the frame rate of the iPhone 8 Plus, X, XS and XS Max. The front camera can capture video at 1080p.

A further leak, that Twitter’s @onleaks revealed yesterday suggests the company will also announce a wireless charger, like Apple’s long-delayed AirPower .

Just in case, no sign of any yet not leaked device in Carphone Warehouse systems… But hey, let’s keep hoping…

 

This is obviously significant as the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL didn’t have the ability to charge wirelessly. Launching a charger means that this feature will indeed by coming to the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

Google Home leak

And it seems like the Google Home range of smart speakers will be joined by a model with a screen. This device was, perhaps, inevitable as Google’s main smart speaker rival is Amazon, which already has devices with a screen.

According to the rest of the leaks we’ve seen so far there won’t be a Pixel watch announced today.

New chromebook

However a new Chromebook is expected too. Perhaps a replacement for Google’s high-end laptop, the Pixel Book.

Called the Pixel Slate the rumours so far suggest that it will be able to run both Chrome OS and Windows 10. It will also, apparently, have a stylus for writing notes or drawing on the screen.
