Pixel 2 XL for Rs 45,499 is a steal

Of all the Android phones launching next month, the Pixel 3 series is easily the victor when it comes to leaks and rumors. Now thanks to a fresh leak, we've learned additional details about the two handsets. With Qi's efficiency and some loss to heat, I figure the Pixel 3 can probably pull somewhere around 7.5-10W from the Pixel Stand, but that's just a guess. For one it means the stand isn't likely to take up much room, and it won't look that daft with the phone in place.

The Pixel-3-as-a-second-screen feature is said to enforce a new interface with larger icons for easier tapping when the phone is docked, as dug out from some Google APK files.

Google is supposedly working on a stand-alone smart display that will be launched alongside the Pixel 3 and Pixel Stand, with rumours suggesting that there will be a 7-inch display and Home Max-style speaker system on the back. Furthermore, the rear-facing fingerprint sensor also supports gestures that will let you navigate the Notifications shade more easily.

Plane overshot runway before ending up in Micronesian lagoon
Photographs and videos posted on Twitter show locals helping passengers into boats beside the stricken half submerged plane. According to local media, all 36 passengers and 11 crew members are safe, citing Jimmy Emilio, Chuuk airport manager.

Google will of course have to address issues with Wireless Charging including speed which has previously proven to be an issue with wireless chargers, though they work well enough for top up charging during the day. For example, a restaurant reservation is only a long press away from within Gmail.

On the bottom, they're basically the same size, but you can clearly see the protector is thinner in the corners, potentially meaning less bezels all around on Pixel 3 XL.

The Pixelstand (which we heard about for the first time a few months ago) appears to be a wireless charging dock that will quickly charge your Pixel 3. While you wait, you can check out the full marketing clip below.
