Google Unveils Pixel 2 XL

Google's new Pixel Buds wireless headphones can do real-time translation

Both products are also available in Australia, Canada, Germany, India and United Kingdom.

Both of the new-generation Pixel devices have been enabled with a new feature called Active Edge, where you can squeeze the phone to trigger many activities, including activating the front camera.

At its Pixel launch event, Google showcased tons of hardware devices which promised to deliver an unmatched performance with a unique combination of software, hardware, and AI.

Google Lens also makes its debut on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, which has been created to pull up helpful information of any object, place or whatever, the user point their camera at. Google is offering the new phones through Verizon, though customers on other carriers can buy the phones through the Google stores.

Like for the original Pixels from a year ago, Verizon is once again the only USA carrier that will sell the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in its stores. Another optional device for the Pixel 2 is the Clips camera that uses AI learning to capture moments without someone behind the lens. Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are the descendants to the "Made By Google" smartphones Pixel and Pixel XL which were launched in October, 2016.

Pixel 2 comes in three colours - Kinda Blue, Just Black and Clearly White. It will be available online on e-commerce platform, Flipkart. They also come with a charging case which is said to provide 24 hours of battery life total.

OIS and EIS are both present on the Pixel 2 smartphones. Google Search bar has also been relocated to the bottom of the screen. Following Apple's lead, the new Pixels, like the newer iPhones, lack a headphone jack - they come with an adapter for plugging in headphones. It has a 6-inch QHD+ (2880x1440 pixels) P-OLED display along with 18:9 aspect ratio and a pixel density of 538ppi and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 coating. The new phone sports a new family of hardware products, including an all-day battery and Google's highest-rated camera. By that, we mean it can be used as a laptop or a tablet, but Google's reason for the 4-in-1 label is that it can also be used in Tent Mode and Entertainment Mode like the Surface Book and Lenovo Yoga.

It runs Chrome OS, and for the first time, Google has added Assistant to this laptop.
