The new products were announced during an event Tuesday in New York.
Google launched the first Pixel smartphone two years ago as part of a major new effort to develop hardware. The company is better known for building software to power internet search technology and the Android smartphone operating system.
Over the past two years, Google has sold about 7 million Pixel phones, the technology research company IDC estimates. Those sales are a very small part of the estimated 3.6 billion phones sold by all manufacturers during that same two-year period. Apple, for example, sold about 388 million iPhones during the two years.
Google's new smartphones – the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL - appear aimed at providing iPhone-like features at a lower price.
谷歌公司新推出的Pixel 3和Pixel 3 XL智能手机似乎旨在以更低的价格提供类似iPhone手机的功能。
The Pixel 3 will be available October 18 in the United States for $799. The larger Pixel 3 XL will cost $899. This compares to the iPhone Xs, which sells for $999, and the iPhone Xs Max, priced at $1099.
Pixel 3手机将于10月18日在美国上市，售价为799美元。尺寸更大的 Pixel 3 XL手机售价为899美元。相比之下，iPhone Xs售价为999美元，iPhone Xs Max售价为1099美元。
Both new Pixels are also being released in 12 other countries, including Japan, Singapore and India.
During Tuesday's launch event, Google officials demonstrated new features and improvements to the Pixel 3. At times, they made direct comparisons to iPhones.
Google promises better camera performance in its Pixel 3 devices. A new tool is designed to use machine learning software to produce better low-light and close-up shots. The tool works by combining many shots quickly taken one after the other. The camera also uses machine learning to examine the many photos it takes in an effort to find and suggest the best ones.
谷歌承诺在其Pixel 3系列设备中提供更好的相机性能。 一种新工具旨在利用机器学习软件来提供更好的低光和特写镜头。该工具将多次拍摄一个接一个地快速组合起来以实现效果。该相机还利用机器学习软件来检查所拍摄的多张照片，以便找出或推荐拍得最好的照片。
Pixel 3 phones were also built with two camera lenses in front, which Google demonstrated as a helpful tool when taking selfies with large groups.
Pixel 3 手机同样配备了两个前置镜头，谷歌证明了它是拍摄大型集体照时的有效工具。
The phone is also able to answer itself if the user cannot or does not want to pick up. If a call comes in, the user can touch the screen to have the phone answer and ask who is calling. The answer from the person placing the call is then put into a text message and shared with the user in real time.
Google Product Manager Liza Ma said the feature puts the user in complete control of the phone.
"You can decide whether to pick up, send a quick reply, or mark the call spam. You'll never have to talk to another telemarketer."
As with the earlier models, the new Pixels center heavily on the company's search engine and other products. These include maps, Google Assistant and YouTube video service.
Google also introduced its new Home Hub, an internet-connected smart speaker and home controller with a small screen. The device is similar to Amazon's Echo Show and Facebook's new Portal.
谷歌还推出了新款Home Hub，这是一种配备了小屏幕的联网智能音箱和家居控制设备。该设备类似于亚马逊公司的Echo Show和脸书网新推出的Portal。
The company said Home Hub is designed to be a central controller for many devices throughout the home, such as lights, outdoor cameras, temperature controls and televisions. Like similar devices, it can be activated by voice to play music and look up information on the internet.
Home Hub will cost $149 when it goes on sale later this month in the United States, Britain and Australia. This compares to the new version of Amazon's Echo Show, which sells for $229. The cost of the Facebook Portal starts at $199.
Home Hub将于本月晚些时候在美国、英国和澳大利亚上市，届时售价将为149美元。相比之下，亚马逊公司新款的Echo Show售价为229美元，脸书网的Portal起价199美元。
Google also announced it would launch a new computer tablet later this year called the Pixel Slate. The company says the device will be powered by its own newly designed Chrome OS system. It appears aimed at competing with Apple's iPad Pro.
谷歌公司还宣布将在今年晚些时候推出一款名为 Pixel Slate的新款平板电脑。该公司表示，该设备将由其自行设计的Chrome OS系统提供支持，它似乎旨在同苹果公司的 iPad Pro展开竞争。
The Slate will run Android phone apps, but Google says it offers performance closer to a desktop computer. It is priced at $599. An exact release date has not yet been announced.
