Yesterday around 10 PM, Google launched its newest and the most powerful ever made, flagship phones- Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Post a long waiting time, the buzz created by these phones was worth it. And after the first look of Pixel 2 and XL, you will agree that these two phones are meant to stand out!
Hardware & Software
The phone runs on the latest Snapdragon 835 with a 4 GB RAM under the hood. These Phones comes with the latest Android 8.0 Oreo. Talking about the change in the design, after a long time we can see stereo speakers in the front, that gives an amazing listening experience. Pixel 2 is not something we can call bezeless but it still looks great. On the other hand, Pixel 2 XL is not just bezeless but you can feel a curve on the edge of the display giving it an S8 feel.
And once again Google Pixel has claimed to bring the best camera in a smartphone, scoring a whopping 98 on its DXO score, better than anything available right now in the market. Also, Google has bumped up the camera’s aperture from f/1.8 to f/2.0.
Google now has its own version of iPhone’s Live Photos its called Motion Photos, it now records a video for 1.5 seconds before and after a single shot.
Google Squeeze & Lens
Google has launched a bunch of new features but these two caught our attention. The new Pixel 2 and XL allows you to launch the assistant when you squeeze the phone and then you can let your voice give it the commands.
Earlier this year, Google I/O introduced Google Lens, which is a camera integrated with a lot of artificial intelligence tech and can recognize, translate, sort and search anything that comes in the frame which is now available in the Google camera app.
