Google revealed the third edition of their very own Pixel smartphone on Tuesday, Oct 9, along with their first tablet computer.

Alphabet’s Inc.’s Google has been pushing its hardware products. Google started investing in hardware three years ago. Google has full control over the performance of its Android software.

Creating a product that works in several languages coming from just a small experiment and is backed by large sales, support and technical teams is one of the major challenges faced by Google.

Pixel 3 and a larger Pixel 3 XL marks Google’s newest release for their smartphone lineup. Pixel 3 comes with 5.5 inches 443 ppi OLED screen while Pixel 3 XL comes with 6.3 inches 523 ppi OLED screen. Both smartphones have a 12.2MP ‘dual-pixel” rear camera.

According to Google’s senior vice president Rick Osterloh, they just built the first phone that can answer the phone.

Pixel phones have only launched in limited countries as they are hesitant to go wide in distributing and marketing. Google said it would increase the amount of its production to improve its distribution by opening stores in Chicago and New York.

Google also revealed “Home Hub” and Pixel Slate tablet. Home Hub is a tablet that doesn’t have a video conferencing camera. The said tablet will be launch in the United States, U.K. and Australia. The Pixel Slate tablet runs Google’s beefier Chrome OS laptop operating system and is available in the United States, U.K. and Canada.

Shares of Alphabet slightly increased following the announcement.
