We already know that Google is hosting its next major event on October 9, where the company will be unveiling the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. But while the email encourages users to use the Pixel's Active Edge feature to awaken the Assistant and pose questions about the new phone, the Assistant can talk up the October 9 event on any device. To get the full scoop, catch the big reveal via livestream.
Like their predecessors, the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL will not ship with a 3.5mm audio jack but we are keeping our fingers crossed that Google bundles a Type-C USB dongle in the packaging. "Tune in on 10/9 to see for yourself". We expect new Home gadgets, a new Chromecast device and TV bundle, at least one new Chromebook device, and the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. The Pixel 3 will test whether the things that made Pixel phones special still hold today when much of the market has moved on to other trends, especially with more than two cameras on the back and thin chins.
Indian Rupee breaches 73 mark, plunges to fresh all-time low
The rupee opened the day's trade at the Inter-Bank Foreign Exchange Market at 73.67 to a dollar from its previous close of 73.34. Yesterday, the rupee recovered to 73.04 to a United States dollar after touching an all-time low after the RBI intervention.
Aside from teasing the Active Edge feature, the video teaser briefly suggests that the new Pixel models will come in Black, Blue, Green, Pink, and White colour options, as noted by 9to5Google.
And it's not just the Pixel 3. The attached image shows a series of phones, ranging from a super-tiny device to a large model. Both smartphones are also going to be accompanied with the Active Edge feature, which triggers when a user squeezes the handset, and according to the defined settings of the device, a specific action will take place. Google could also expand the usability of the Active Edge feature by adding third-party app support for squeezing gestures this time.
