These two phones both have a single-lens 12.2MP f/1.8 rear camera, and it's one that we were impressed by in our Google Pixel 2 XL review, but it's got some new features for the Google Pixel 3 XL.
Google's free Android software operates most of the world's smartphones. However, the latter feature won't launch until later this year.
You can join the waitlist for the Pixel Slate on the Google Store here. Alphabet generated US$4.4 billion in the second quarter from this category, up 37 per cent from a year earlier.
Google'sPixel Stand is a different take on the wireless charger, one that can turn your phone into a small smart node.
On the front side, both phones have bigger displays - the Pixel 3 now has an 18:9 screen but maintains a similar size to its predecessor while the XL grows its display by 0.3-inches and includes a notch. There's integrated virus detection to keep the malware at bay as well as Google's Titan Security, a chip which controls disk encryption and the lock screen.

Looking tense as she walked into yesterday's hearing, she made no comment to reporters and sat on a bench behind her lawyers. Mr Netanyahu has vowed not to step down if indicted and, so far, his right-wing Likud party has continued to back him.
The other major product announced was Google Home Hub, a device that's something of a hybrid between a smart speaker and a tablet, which is created to sit at the center of what Google repeatedly called "the thoughtful home" (it avoided use of the word "smart").
Chrome OS on the Pixel Slate has been optimized to be tablet friendly, but also gives you a full desktop experience when you need it. The device, priced at US$149, won't be a video-chatting hub like Amazon's product and Facebook's new Portal speaker, unveiled Monday.
BNN Bloomberg's Amanda Lang tells us her take on Google shutting down its Plus service following the disclosure of a bug that may have exposed their customers' personal information.
What Google, Amazon, and Apple are able to do, which nearly no other company can, is combine enough products and services that a standalone hub starts to make sense on its own, rather than be just an additional expense for convenience.
With its new Pixel Slate tablet, Google wants to win the shrinking tablet market in a battlefield it will have to share with competitors like Apple's iPad and Microsoft's Surface devices. Available on October 22 in four colors, it's essentially a 7-inch tablet fused to a small fabric-covered speaker that can do everything your Google Home can, and a bitmore thanks to its touchscreen display. They'll come in three colors: black, white and pink.
Called "call screen", the tool will answer incoming phone calls on your behalf and transcribe what the caller is saying on your device's screen. If you want to know more about something you're looking at, use Google Lens, built right into your Pixel 3. Google said this is so the device is "comfortable to use in private spaces in your home".
There were also some non-camera related features announced.
The only changes are that it now supports 1080p resolution at 60fps versus the previous 720p at 60fps or 1080p at 30fps, and it now lets users play music in sync with other speakers Google's smart devices, like a Chromecast Audio dongle. And it has no problems charging the phone inside a case.
Google's phones are certainly a great choice if you love taking pictures and prefer the feel of the Android operating system. The device costs US$599, or US$798 including the optional attachable keyboard. A separate stylus, the same one from the Pixelbook, is also available for $99.
Notably, this feature appears to in no way have the functionality of Google Duplex - a service that can carry out limited conversations with real people on its own.
