On the other hand, the Pixel 3 XL goes edge-to-edge with 82% screen to body ratio with its huge notch.

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 phone runs Android Pie and will be available in black, clearly white and not pink. In fact, it was all done deliberately from marketing strategic point of view as Android is the most important feature of the mobile it can not be ignored otherwise.

But if I were shopping for a larger phone, I'd look to the iPhone XS Max or the forthcoming iPhone XR, rather than the Pixel 3 XL.

So far as battery is concerned, both the Pixel 3 are generously equipped with a 2,915mAh unit powering the Pixel 3. They both come in fun colours, have standout cameras, pack a ton of impressive features in a somewhat affordable package (or, at least, more affordable than some other options), and start shipping this month. Google also rolled out a new device called Home Hub that couples a small display screen with an Internet-connected speaker.

Three Seriously Injured in West Bank Terror Shooting
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said troops would soon apprehend the "despicable murderer" and "bring him to justice". Security forces launched a manhunt for the shooter, who fled the scene after the attack.

The iPhone XR comes in more colours than the Pixel 3. In contrast, the Pixel 3 XL, opens at INR 83,000 (USD 1,120) for the 64GB variant, and for the 128GB storage variant, consumers have to cough up to a staggering INR 92,000 (USD 1,242). This continues with the latest generation, but next week's launch also sees the app get a long-awaited feature.

Whilst the current Pixel 2/2XL offers the option between traditional software buttons and gesture navigation, Google claims the upgrade represents a shift in "all Android phones going forward". The same camera app and processing are being used in both phones. The Pixel 3 had been the subject of many leaks, which turned out to be accurate, in the lead-up to the launch.

Why it matters: When the Pixel buds launched a year ago, they came with two new features: Google Assistant baked right in, and an exclusive translation feature that uses Google Translate to have a conversation in real-time. All Pixel phones support Google Lens, but since the new experience uses the Pixel Visual Core for instant suggestions, it's possible only the Pixel 2 will get the new experience.
