Pixel 3 XL and its unforgiving notch pop up in Toronto

Everything we know about what’ll likely be one of the year’s best phones.

Google first introduced its Pixel series in 2016, and since then, has been hard at work to establish itself as a serious player in the smartphone market. Google may be one of the most powerful and iconic companies in the world, but when it comes to hardware, is still very much a newcomer.

We’ve seen companies like Apple, Sony, and Lenovo try their own hand at this market, and according to a report from AndroidPure, Motorola’s now gearing up to launch its first smart speaker.
