There is also an optional backlit keyboard accessory, along with a stylus. The units starts at $599 and can get as pricey as $1,599.
The event wouldn’t be complete without its often leaked Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. The devices offer the latest in terms of processor, making use of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 and pack 4GB RAM. As far as the design, the Pixel 3 XL offers a large 6.3-inch display with a notch, while the Pixel 3 keeps things more traditional with its heavy bordered 5.5-inch display. The Pixel 3 will start at $799 and the Pixel 3 XL will start at $899.
Google has finally introduced wireless charging into its phones with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, and as such, the firm has also debuted its Pixel Stand wireless charger. The stand looks pretty plain but does keep your phone upright when charging.
