Just like its predecessors, Pixel 3 is touting the "world's best camera", with a Google official also bragging that the device could be world's most helpful phone.

Google has just announced the Pixel 3, its new Android-powered smartphone, in a bid to compete with Apple's recent iPhone Xs.

The Pixel phones have barely made a dent in the market since their debut two years ago, but Google is hoping to change that with the latest models unveiled on Tuesday at an event in NY.

Compared to that, the Pixel 2 cost $1079 upon release a year ago.

Google has sold an estimated 7 million Pixels over the past two years, nearly imperceptible next to the 3.6 billion phones shipped during that time, according to IDC. Although this case has been thrown out of court by a United Kingdom judge this past Monday, it's still cause for concern. Check out the video below, then expect to see this on your Pixel 2 in November. The first Pixel devices hit 2.4 million shipments in the nine months ended June 30, 2017, the firm said. This design decision wasn't just for aesthetics; the Pixel 3 supports wireless charging now, too. Add to that Google has has added features that enables better group selfies, night shots and overall software and it's easy to see how the device can come in handy when you need to immortalise the latest milestone of your startup journey.

However, this comes with downsides. The new version Echo Show starts at $229, while the least expensive Facebook Portal sells for $199.
