Previous leaks said the Pixel 3 would be available for preorder right after Google's event on Tuesday in all the countries where Google is holding local events, including the US, UK, and France, but also in other global markets.

The iPhone also features Google's search engine, but Google may be paying Apple as much as $9 billion annually for that privilege, based on the estimates of Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall. It turns out it wasn't a design choice from the outset; Google wanted both handsets to have matching notches, but the smaller size of the Pixel 3 meant it just wouldn't fit.

First, starting out in English in the US, Pixel 3's on-device AI helps you screen phone calls and avoid spam calls. On the storage front, the smartphone comes in either 64GB or 128GB capacities without a support for microSD card.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL obviously both ship with the latest and greatest version of Android, which is Android 9.0 Pie. The Pixel 3 is backed by a 2915mAh battery while the Pixel 3 XL packs a 3430mAh battery. Google has also introduced Super Res Zoom in its camera, which it claims uses machine learning to generate noise-free images, which is much better than digital zoom. You can swipe down from the top-left corner of the screen to enter the app switcher, from where it's easy to drag an app to the left or right edges and enter a split-screen view. Just tap on a button for Google's voice assistant to ask the caller about the objective of the call.

Broad carrier availability: The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is available on all United States wireless carriers and various retailers.

Analysts are also expecting Google to add higher resolution and more cameras to the Pixel, whose first two generations attracted rave reviews for its high-quality pictures. Motion Auto Focus allows you to track an object in motion and focus only on it. Google and Verizon both offer monthly payment plans.

In short, it looks like a very useful product that pulls together a series of useful functions and strengthens Google's position in what is a rapidly growing market. Bixby takes the assistant to the next level and has some incredible functionality, but it does require some patience to fully understand its full capability.

What you do get for your money, is a compact phone powered by 2018's top hardware, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 platform. The display bezels are a smidge too large, but they give the device a better sense of balance and, if nothing else, a place to put your fingers while watching YouTube videos.

Samsung DeX: People use their smartphones for everything, and with the improvements in Samsung DeX the possibility of your phone serving as your primary computing device is a reality.

You can purchase the Pixel 3 from the Google Store here. It is the best smartphone available for the enterprise. Shortly after the introduction of the new iPhones, the second was the iPhone Xs Max. The Pixel 3 XL starts at $899, $50 more than the Pixel 2 XL's $849 price tag.

The notch on the Pixel 3 XL isn't a deal-breaker, of course. It's been two years since Google Home launched, and now that the company's smart speaker line-up is four products strong, Google says its working to create not only a more connected home but a more "thoughtful" one.
