The Google Pixel 2 XL also wins in the design depart because, though it has a bigger display, the phone is physically smaller that the iPhone 8 Plus. "I'd say the Pixel 1 is the last Google phone I'll own if this hostility towards your customers continues". This means that the camera's sensor has two images, from slightly different perspectives, of the world in front of it.
The Pixel debuted a year ago, with analysts estimating sales of more than 2 million, pushing Google to record amounts of non-advertising revenue.
For most people, 64 GB of built-in storage is plenty, but Google offers the option to double that.
Talking about the display, the regular Pixel 2 features a 5-inch FHD (1920x1080) AMOLED display with 2.5D curved glass and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
Pixel 2 will be priced at Rs 61,000 for 64GB variant and Rs 70,000 for 128GB variant.
Both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL smartphones are available in two storage variants of 64GB/128GB; there is no microSD card slot so the storage is not expandable. Apart from Flipkart, you will be able to get the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL from certain offline retailers that are listed here. Sure, you get Assistant again - it even comes with a dedicated key - but of all the devices showcased at the event, this is the one that has the least well-defined use case, at least in our book.
Google Home Mini, the new speaker, is priced at $49 in the United States and would rival Amazon.com Inc's popular Echo Dot.
Now, Google has made a decision to copy Apple and deliver the Google Home Max, being a smart speaker which promises (surprise) louder and better sound.
Weeks after Apple unveiled its latest and greatest smartphone iPhone X, Google announced the second generation Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones. The Pixel 2 XL also listens for any music playing nearby, identifies the song and displays the title and album on the lock screen. It also comes with the Pixel 2-style Google search box. Google says it determines the important bits by registering "device motion and Bluetooth connections", so being paired to a Bluetooth connection in the auto appears to be a necessity.
Past year the first Pixel smartphone was praised but critics but it didn't sell enough units to count. You basically get free, unlimited original-quality storage for photos and videos taken with Pixel until January 15, 2021, and high-quality storage for all later uploads. The overall camera score (photo+video) of Google's handsets is 98.
