Pixel Buds Are Google's Wireless Answer to Apple AirPods

Pixel Buds Are Google's Wireless Answer to Apple AirPods”

The first Google Pixel smartphones came in three colors of Very Silver, Quite Black and Really Blue. The Pixel 2 phones are available unlocked on the Google store starting at $649. That being said, these prices vary for countries outside of the U.S., both phones are more expensive, as expected. The PixelBook hybrid laptop costs $1200. They are Bluetooth, though, and have a bunch of smart features built-in. The event saw the launch of new Pixel smartphones, Google Home Mini, Google Home Max, Google Pixelbook, Google Daydream View, Google Pixel Buds and Google Clips.

Both Pixel 2s use OLED displays with the option to use it as an "always on" display similar to Samsung's Galaxy phones. At the top users get "At a glance" feature, which lets them know about their upcoming meetings and other engagements.

Next up is the Pixel Buds, which you'll be using with your new Pixel 2 phone because, guess what, it doesn't have a headphone jack. The 6-inch Pixel 2 XL features a plastic-OLED curved display that runs almost to the edges. The rear camera has the capability of recording 4k videos @ 30 fps.

Talking of connectivity, there's a USB Type-C port provided for charging, listening to music and much more.

On the battery front, the Google Pixel 2 sports a 2700mAh battery, while the elder sibling features a 3520mAh battery.

The Pixel XL willcost$850, which is $50 more than the iPhone 8 Plus. The device is backed by a 3520mAh battery, which is said to run for up to 7 hours in 15 minutes of charging.

Mario Queiroz, VP of product management at Google, claims that the Google Pixel has 0.7 percent market share. It has a 360-degree hinge, just like a Lenovo Yoga. It has soft touch keys along with palm rejection tech. You get to choose from Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors. This is a unique feature that only a company like Google could integrate into wireless earbuds, thanks to the existing Google Translate data and infrastructure.

Then we've got the Pixelbook, rebranded from "Chromebook Pixel" to just "Pixelbook", which offers numerous same features as the original Chromebook: Chrome OS, Google Assistant, etc. It packs pressure sensitive gestures as like of the HTC U11. Taking potshots at Apple iPhone, Google said that Home can search your Android device and ring it even if it is on silent mode.
