Google highlighted a feature for the Pixel 3 that lets people screen calls via Google Assistant. Assistant answers the call and provides a live, on-screen transcription of the interaction so people can decide whether or not to...

  • Google Pixel 3 Built By Foxconn Instead Of HTC Or LG

    9 days ago - By Android Headlines

    In short: The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL were made official this week, and many people are now starting to wonder if these were still built by HTC and LG, as the previous generations were. And it turns out that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL were designed by the Pixel team at Google (not the HTC engineers that Google acquired last year), and built by Foxconn. That is a bit different from previous years where the Pixel and Pixel XL were both designed and built by HTC. The Pixel 2 was built and designed by HTC and the Pixel 2 XL was built and designed by LG. It's a bit interesting to see that...

    Google has just announced two new flagship smartphones in the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

    When you factor in the fact that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are equipped with the latest Snapdragon 845 CPU...

    The Pixel 3 won't help the fact that Google just can't seem to sell Pixel phones

    9 days ago - By TheBoyGeniusReport

    Google earlier this week made a big deal about its previous Pixel phones, right before unveiling the Pixel 3 and all the other new hardware it developed this year. Google insisted on how great the Pixel 2 camera is and how the phone has gotten better over time. But the company never told us how many Pixel phones it sold to date. Of course, we know that Google has never managed to sell very many Pixel phones compared to the competition, and the Pixel 3 isn't likely to help.
