We’re excited to introduce to you the next big thing in smartphone technology! The all new Google Pixel! As one of our tech gurus I spoke with said “With Google behind Pixel, I am sure it will dominate the smartphone industry and raise the bar in terms of competition”. More competition means smarter and more powerful phones and we can’t wait to see what sort of improvements the will bring to smartphone abilities.
Nexus phones have been considered standard Android phones for years. Google cooperated with many manufacturers such as LG, Motorola, HTC and Huawei to release high-quality phones supplemented with the latest pure Android version. This year, the game has slightly changed. This year Google has introduced its first “made by Google inside and out” phone as they claim. In this article, we are going through the feature of this new phone.
Introducing Pixel and Pixel XL
Google has recently announced its new devices called “Pixel” and “Pixel XL”. Pixel is considered the first phone to have the new built-in Google Assistant. It can act upon voice and text commands. You can ask it to play your favorite music or to search for images for example.
To the camera, Google says that the rear camera is the best camera that has ever made for a smartphone. It has scored 89 on DXOMARK that rates the camera quality for mobile phones, putting it ahead of iPhone 7 camera. It is a 12.3 MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture.
Google is offering free unlimited storage for photos and videos shot with Pixel. The new thing here is that the size and quality limit over uploaded media, which was present in the standard Google Photos backup utility. Also, Pixel phones are ready for the new Daydream VR platform. It can wirelessly connect to Google’s new headset very easily.
Pixel phones come in 5 and 5.5 inches. They use the modern, powerful Snapdragon 821 processor. They are made out of aluminum with a big glass window at the back. For the battery, Pixel has a 2700mAh battery and 3450mAh for the Pixel XL. You can get 7 hours of power with just 15 minutes of charging. For updates, a new method is used. If a new update is found, it will be downloaded and installed in the background
The Pixel definitely is not what you would call a budget phone. Being in the market competing with phones like the iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7, the tech involved raises the price tag of the gadget. Pixel phones come in three different colors as described by Google “Quite Black, Really Blue, and Very Silver”. Google Pixel is available for pre-order starting at $649 or $27/month. It is available in US, Australia, Canada, Germany and the UK. Starts at $649 or $27/month.
