Google has now officially launched its Pixel smartphones for this year, which incidentally failed to surprise anyone. Google launched its main products at the event which were the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones, a ChromeOS based tablet called Pixel Slate and Google Home Hub which is essentially a Google Home with a display.

But the focus of the event were the Google Pixel 3 smartphones which failed to surprise anyone because every single aspect of the phone was leaked beforehand and some of the devices were already available to buy in a couple of shady stores. The leaks became so apparent that Google even played an Oops video at the beginning of the event that showed people talking about the leaks. And yet when the time came to see the phones, it was as you expected it, the same thing we have seen in the leaks.

And Twitter being its ruthless self, didn t waste any time and shaded the new phones from Google.

Jon Prosser was so offended that he made a string of tweets to fire out his thoughts about the new Pixel 3 XL.

The most trolling Google faced was for having a rather deep notch on its Pixel 3 XL.

Google took dibs at its numero uno rival, Apple, at the event with camera comparisons and how the event won t be as long. But this person had some comparisons to make of their own.

This person just took down Google s comparison of the Pixel 3 low light camera comparison with the iPhone X in one tweet.

Some even tried to have a positive outlook about the notch.

Google named the third color of the Pixel 3 Not Pink and some even has comments on that as well.

To say the least, people expected Google to pull off a Houdini by announcing a phone different from what we had seen in the leaks, but Google says, not this time.
