Google’s big event today delivered a ton of new hardware from the company, headlined by the Pixel 3 and Google Home Hub. With so many new offerings, the question begs to be asked – did you treat yo’ self to any of it?
The best gifts for Android users
First and foremost, what did Google announce? Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably well aware that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL were coming today. Google’s latest flagships introduce a refreshed design, new features like wireless charging, better screens, and more. They aren’t cheap, though, at $799 and $899 respectively. Google also announced its new Pixel Stand wireless charger alongside the new phones, some new USB-C earbuds, and a bunch of new cases.
On top of that, Google also announced its new Google Home Hub. This Assistant smart display is an incredibly affordable $149 device which brings a ton of functionality in its small package. Like other smart displays it works just like a Google Home speaker, but can also access apps like YouTube and much more. A refreshed Chromecast was also quietly unveiled and is even available in a bundle with Home Hub.
Further, Google also announced its new Chrome OS-powered Pixel Slate, but that’s not on sale quite yet.
What did you order?
For me personally, my order today included a Pixel 3 XL in Clearly White (64GB), a Pixel Stand, an Indigo Pixel 3 XL case, a Chalk Chromecast, and a Google Home Hub in Charcoal.
