Google Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL India pricing and launch dates revealed”

The online giant revealed its new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones at an event earlier today, alongside two new versions of its Google Home assistant and an all-new Pixelbook laptop.

You'll be able to pre-order the new Pixels starting October 26 exclusively on Flipkart, with the smaller Pixel 2 going up for sale from November 1.

Fast LTE connectivity, IP67 ratings, and price tags well over $600 are also shared by the devices - as shown below.

Google has unveiled the second edition of its Pixel smartphone, as well as a host of other hardware products from across the spectrum.

PixelBuds are available in three colours: Kinda Blue, Clearly White and Just Black and will cost $159.

Talking about how Google Clips uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to know when to begin recording, Google says: "We've put machine learning capabilities directly into Clips so when you turn it on, the camera looks for good moments to capture".

This impressive new feature was put to the test onstage by two Google employees who shared a conversation with each other in Swedish and English, as the Pixel Buds translated in real-time.

However, the Pixel 2 delivered better video performance in poorer lighting conditions than its competitors.

The device come with a 3520 mAh battery which the company claims, lasts for 7 hours with 15 minutes of charge. The major functionality of this device is music playing.

Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be available in the US, UK, Canada, Germany, India and Australia.

Pricing starts at $649 for the 64GB Pixel 2 and $849 for the 64GB Pixel 2 XL. The Home Mini costs 59 euros, the bigger version of home costs 149 euros. Google Assistant is also built in, much like Siri in the Apple HomePad and Alexa in Amazon's Echo speakers.

The Pixel will feature a portrait mode and will not have a headphone jack. The laptop runs on Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and comes with 16 gigabytes of RAM and up to 512 GB of storage, Google said. The Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL are not that different in terms of design aesthetics from last year's iterations.
