Share

The new Pixel 2 features a 5-inch 16:9 AMOLED display with an FHD resolution of 1920 x 1080, 441ppi, 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5, 95% DCI-P3 coverage, and a 100000:1 super contrast ratio.

As anticipated, Google today revealed two new powerful Pixel smartphones with considerable camera improvements, Google Assistant, Google Lens and more. "The device has a 12.3" backlit QuadHD LCD touchscreen with 235PPI in a variety of configurations including Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. It's also super-light at under 1Kg and super-thin at just 10.3mm thin.

Disney, Warner Brothers, Sports Illustrated Kids and more child-friendly companies have also partnered with Google for exclusive experiences for kids with Google Home.

Another item unveiled Wednesday was the Home Mini, which has all the power of a regular-size Google digital assistant.

If you want to save a few bucks, Google will pay you up to $410 when you trade in your old Pixel smartphone. It's powered by an AI engine that makes the camera smarter with time. You can clip it to an object or set it down while you do something and it fires away. It has a camera shutter button and a companion app as well for remote operation.

Google also souped up the already highly rated camera on the Pixel, boasting that it will take even better photos than the iPhone. Both smartphones will abandon the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, just as Apple did with the iPhone 7 a year ago. Well that should be about to change, because Google's announced it's own wireless earbuds that come with Google Translate built in.

Announced as the flawless audio accessory for your new Pixel 2 or Pixel 2XL, Google unveiled the Pixel Buds at its press event this morning. Their controller and basic features are same as first Daydream View headsets. It comes in three colors and sells at $99.
