Google Reveals Pixel 2, 2 XL, Smart Speakers & More

Both handsets come with unlimited online storage for photos and videos. And yes, it is not a bezel-less device. It is sad to see that neither the Google Pixel 2 nor the Apple iPhone 8 are equipped with an HDR display even though they are priced similarly to the Samsung Galaxy S8. They are similarly finished, but the smaller Pixel 2 just isn't quite up to par, at least to my hands.

Next, the company's new Pixelbook laptop is the first such device to come with the Google Assistant built in, offering a smarter way to work and browse the web.

Shipping dates on a number of the new Pixel range - most notably, Pixel 2 XL - have already started to slip into December.

Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be available in the US, UK, Canada, Germany, India and Australia. Moreover, both the handsets also feature dual front speakers and OLED display.

If you're up for it, the company is giving away a free Google Home worth $49.

Talking about performance, again, there is no difference in the specifications.

The XL version is released on November 15 and will set you back £799 for the 64GB phone and £899 for the 128GB device.

Like the most recent iPhones, the new Pixels also focus on augmented reality. The Pixel 2 XL will be available in Just Black, Black and White. This happens automatically, and Google promises that the settings will also be adjusted immediately if the Max is moved or if, for example, a noisy device is on. For those who want to get in line first, pre-order is now available at Google Store: $649 for Pixel 2, $849 for Pixel 2 XL. With the removal of the earphone jack and the arrival of wireless Pixel Buds, it can not be helped but compare the two new Pixel 2 devices with Apple's iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Meanwhile, the selfie camera is 8MP.

Google is also introducing a new feature where users can squeeze the sides of the Pixel 2 to open the Assistant where you can then launch additional apps.

In terms of the camera, the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL comes with a higher 12.2 megapixel rear camera. The home screen has been tweaked, with the search bar now placed at the bottom. Seems as if Google got some of that Apple "courage".

Another new feature is the addition of IP67 dust and water resistance for both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. They will be released on October 19, but are already available for pre-order. To get 128GB model, you will have to spend $100 more.
