The event will kick off at 11:00AM ET, which corresponds to 8:30PM IST. In a crowning early look, the good folks at Engadget managed to get their hands on the unreleased Pixel 3 XL, courtesy of a mobile phone store in Hong Kong.
But there's also been a theory going around that at least some of the leaks were planned by Google to sow disinformation before the event, and that there's going to be some big reveal at tomorrow's release that no one saw coming. With the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, though, Google is finally adding support for wireless charging. Presumably, the link will be fixed once Google launches the phone. Some people say that the Pixel 3 XL leak with shipments being stolen was a complete publicity stunt from Google.
Instead of a thick hardware keyboard magnetically attached to the bottom edge of the device, as we saw with the Pixel C, this year Google seems to be putting on a cover with an integrated, attachable keyboard, which can be connected to the tablet via four pins.More news: Hamilton cruises to win at Japanese GP, closes in on title

Previous rumours suggest the phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. These new products should include a new Pixel phone, Pixel tablet, and among other things. This front camera feature of the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3XL will be capable of clicking wide-angle selfies, which means users will not need a selfie stick to click too many people together.
It will be the first tablet with Chrome OS of the Colossus of Mountain View, and according to the images should be able to rely on a removable keyboard and an active stylus, to turn it into a small portable office. Interestingly, the keyboard has a dedicated key to launch Google Assistant.
Google's next voice-activated device could be a smart speaker with a screen. The Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL smartphones have surfaced regularly through reports, leaks, renders and even videos.
A list of specs shows that the device will have a "full-range speaker for crystal clear sound" and 'far-field voice recognition'. While Google (like Apple) often uses these events to reveal hardware across multiple product lines, Google typically spends more time showing off its new smartphones than any other device during the course of these fall press conferences.
