Google Unveils AR Stickers for Pixel 2

Share

After launching its first ever smartphones - Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL - last year, Google is now ready to unveil their successors. Their new Pixel 2 smartphone uses one camera + machine learning to offer the Bokeh effect.

PixelBook Pen can be used to quickly circle photos and text on the display - which immediately summons additional information from Google Assistant. Introducing the Google Pixelbook, a high performance Chromebook designed and developed by the company itself.

Powering the new Google-built laptop is an Intel i5 or Intel i7 chipset. It's a beefed up version of the standard Google Home with more audio muscle and a rectangular design that works in either portrait or landscape mode. This also comes shortly after the news of Google acquiring one of HTC's teams for $1.1 billion.

The device is the smaller version of the Google Home speaker and is expected to be priced at United States dollars 50, putting it directly in competition with Amazon's Echo Dot.

Google also unveiled a slimmed down version of its digital assistant connected speaker starting at $49 in the United States, stepping up its challenge to market leader Amazon.

At today's big event in San Francisco, Google confirmed what we've all known for the last two weeks: It has a slick looking new Chromebook, and it costs $1,000.

The earbuds' matching charging case can power them multiple times with its 620mAh battery. 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.

A product called Google Clips, which could be a 360-degree camera accessory has also been spotted online. If in fact the phone ditches the headphone jack it's likely due to waterproofing, which the original phones were lacking. These are the company's first wireless earbuds.

The Google Home Max will be available in the United States in December, but pre-orders will open 13 November. The event will be livestreamed on Google's official YouTube channel. The newer design and look is pleasant.

Google chief executive Sundar Pichai said the new devices showcase the tech giant's artificial intelligence.
