Users Can Hide The Pixel 3XL Notch Says Google

Google Home Hub

Google Home Hub is all about simplifying the smart home experience

Perhaps the biggest complaint about the new Google Pixel phones is their massive and unaesthetic notch, despite the notch-display ratio being smaller than top competitors. The new Pixel phones are expected to follow the trend of expanding the phone screen almost to the edges of the device. The Pixel 3 will have a new chip, called Titan, to store keys to the most sensitive information, including those needed to unlock the phone and descramble stored data.

IDC analyst Ramon Llamas said the Pixel 3 doesn't break new ground on hardware, but "software is a different story". And Pixel will remain outside the mainstream, remaining under the shadow of other phone makers.

Google shipped 2.53 million Pixel 2 and 2 XL devices through the nine months ended June 30, Strategy Analytics said.

Both phones have been made available for pre-order already.

The new Pixels have a feature to make it easier to take good photos. Same goes for Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max.

Google unveiled its challengers to Samsung's offering on Tuesday, October 9, by showcasing the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. In tablet mode, the multitasking capability enables two apps to run side by side, while other Android features like Do Not Disturb and Night Light toggle is available in the desktop mode. It's fair to say that the main changes on the Pixel 3 are software-based.

The Pixel 3 will cost Rs. 71,000 for the 64GB variant in India and up to Rs. 80,000 for the 128GB storage variant.

The idea here is that Google's camera uses AI and machine learning to screen out any photos where a subject might have their eyes closed or be making a weird face unintentionally, choosing "smiles instead of sneezes" and offers you the best photo automatically.

In fact, many Twitter users have expressed their distaste for the cutout with some even tweeting at Samsung's Mobile US account. Through its Pixel series, Google has been trying for the last few years to make a mark but hasn't managed to get a foothold so far.

One new feature added to Digital Wellbeing is called Shhh. The feature has only been announced for the new Pixel handsets.
