Shared specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB storage, 12.2MP dual-pixel rear camera with OIS, 8MP front camera, "Active Edge" squeezable sides, IP67 water resistance, USB-C, and Bluetooth 5.0.

Display: 18:9 aspect ratio displays for Pixel 2 XL and Pixel 2 could come with 5-inch full-HD display with an aspect ratio of 16:9. The rest is the same.

Both sizes are available for pre-order today and will ship October 19 and November 15, for $649 and $849 respectively.

What else new, though? Both smartphones will abandon the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, just as Apple did with the iPhone 7 previous year.

As expected, these phones will come with Android Oreo out of the box and Google has promised that they'll receive new Android updates for at least 3 years. The 64GB version of Pixel 2 XL is priced at Rs 73,000 and the 128GB will be available for Rs 82,000.

Battery capacity of the Pixel 2 is 2700mAh whereas that of the Pixel 2 XL is 3520mAh. Google ended its show with a couple of surprise announcements, though, leading off these mystery devices with the new Google Pixel Buds.

Google has launched the Pixel 2, its first smartphone with Google Assistant and AR Stickers.

They'll be available to pre-order later today, and are available in blue, white, and black.

Then we've got the Pixelbook, rebranded from "Chromebook Pixel" to just "Pixelbook", which offers numerous same features as the original Chromebook: Chrome OS, Google Assistant, etc.

Apple's in the room whenever a tech company throws a big launch event for new hardware like phones and laptops. Both feature an Always On display that automatically identifies music playing out in the world, a souped up camera and support for virtual and augmented reality apps. Pixel phones can also take three seconds of video behind the scenes of photos, another feature similar to Apple's Live Photos system. Google lists over eight compatible phones, including the the Galaxy S8/S8+ and all Pixel phones, and will throw in $40 worth of VR games as an incentive to buy. As with past year, Pixel owners get unlimited storage in Google Photos for pictures and videos. It features a 4-in-design that allows you to use in a tablet mode as well.
