In many respects, Google is simply copying or offering slight variations on devices made by Apple and Amazon that have been bigger hits so far. There is no word if Google will officially launch these devices in the UAE.
The company unveiled several new products at the event in San Francisco - including the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XLsmartphones, a new Chromebook, a miniature Google Home, and a new speaker system. From a design perspective, these might not the most attractive earphones seen in the market, but its what they offer inside that matters. The phones both have optical image stabilisation for taking pictures, improved auto-focus for objects and cameras optimised for augmented reality applications from third-party developers.
During the launch event, Google also demonstrated Google Lens - a new set of visual features that builds on Google's advancements in computer vision and machine learning. Google claimed the Pixel 2 also had the best camera of any smartphone, a significant improvement on the widely-acclaimed camera on last year's Pixel.
The smaller Pixel 2 flaunts a 5-inch Cinematic full-HD display with a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution, while the Pixewl 2 XL sports a 6-inch P-OLED display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and 1440 x 2880 pixel resolution. The XL will also have a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution. But instead of relying on two cameras to take better portraits, Google is using AI software that adjusts photos automatically to enhance close-ups and blur backgrounds. Previous year's Pixel received rave reviews for its cameras.
The Google Pixel Buds are wireless headphones created to use with the company's new Pixel 2 handset.
There's a 12MP rear facing camera on the Google Pixel 2 and it boasts a portrait mode to rival the one found on the likes of the iPhone 8 Plus.
This camera won't record any sound, but would rather capture both videos and pictures. Above the color split is a 12-megapixel camera (same as its predecessor) - it's the same as previous year, though Google has improve optical image stabilization to get better video out of the thing. Interestingly, they retain last year's Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor while other phone brands have traded up. They also come with a slightly tweaked metal and glass body. The Pixel 2 XL is available in Just Black, and Black and White.
The Google Pixel 2 has been priced at Rs. 61,000 for the 64GB internal storage variant and Rs. 70,000 for the 128GB internal storage variant.
Ok, now that you have the raw specs, let's talk about what Google hopes will differentiate these phones from the crop of Android flagships out there. From here you can adjust the pressure required to trigger the Assistant, making it just right for you. The Pixel Buds are also capable of translating the sentences that the user speaks into another language, with the translation to come out of the paired Pixel 2. The bigger battery in the latter can be attributed to the larger form factor.
Both phones might come with "squeeze" interaction, USB-C charger and stereo speakers. This means users will now need to depend on wireless headphones or connect via the USB Type-C port.
The new Pixels are water resistant - a feature notably lacking in the first gen Pixels - and have followed Apple's suit in doing away with the 3.5 headphone jack. Other wireless connectivity options in the phone include: Bluetooth 5.0, dual-band Wi-Fi, GPS, GLONASS, and NFC.
But now, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL has surpassed this mark; achieving a remarkable 98!
Whenever checking out a new phone, regardless of who makes it, make sure you check the footnotes and the fine prints.
