Apple iPhone X Won't Have To Worry About Pixel 2 XL

Google leverages its AI smarts to beat Apple in the camera game

A new "smart speaker" adjusts its sound for the layout of a room.

It was leaked before the event, but Google now has a rival to Amazon's own Echo Dot smart speaker.

Earlier this week, Google showcased its latest flagship smartphones, the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL. Two Max speakers will play music in stereo. It's Google's answer to Amazon's Echo Dot.

A clone of a cloned product?

Google is expected to rival Samsung and Apple in the high-end smartphone market. Following the Apple's suit, Google has decided that headphone jacks are no longer chic, and ditched the component entirely. At US$399, it's also US$50 more expensive than the already expensive HomePod. For example, if a user circles a photo of a flower, Google Assistant can give them information about it without the need for text input.

Touting a convertible design with a 2400×1600 touchscreen, the Pixelbook packs an i5 or i7 chip, 8GB or 16GB RAM and a 128GB/256GB/512GB SSD.

We're not sure if the same pattern will apply on the Chromebooks. It has 16GB internal storage and has a USB-C port support.

Is it wrong that all we want is for existing Chromebooks to get the Play Store?




Not to be confused with the " made by Google ", referring to the galaxy of the products directly manufactured by the giant of Mountain View.

When switched on, it "automatically turns on Do Not Disturb while you're in a moving vehicle". It adds that the camera is capable of recognising expressions, lighting and framing to automatically get great shots.

Pixel 2 has a 5-inch screen and will cost $649 and up. The phones will receive monthly security updates and are water- and dust-resistant to an IP67 standard.

Google also introduced their all-new laptop under the Pixel brand, called the Pixelbook, which is dubbed as their "thinnest laptop ever". Apple's claims are more accurate than the older biometric system. Trade-ins are also widely available online, and it is notable that the developer has actually been rather reasonable with Apple trade-ins in particular.

The five-inch Pixel 2 with AMOLED display, priced at $649 and up, and the six-inch Pixel 2 XL with pOLED screen, which starts at $849, are set to begin shipping on October 19, although several reports indicate that early demand has already delayed the expected arrival of the larger device by almost a month. Just point it at the object that got your curiosity, and the AI behind the software will do its magic and try its best to figure out what it is.

To sum things up, it nearly sounds like Google is obsessed with placing information at users' fingertips with the Pixel 2, including breaking down language barriers, not to mention that it won't burn as big a hole in your pocket compared with the iPhone X.
