Google readies Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL to rival iPhone X 0

Pixel 2

In the case of the new Pixels, that mostly means that they're going to work perfectly with the device's new Active Edge feature for activating Google Assistant.

Therefore, users either need to use wireless headphones or the USB-C charging socket.

Thanks to the translate feature, you can have conversations with someone who speaks a different language by simply speaking your language and having the Pixel Buds translate your words and send them across to the speaker on the other side of a call.

And lastly, the price difference between the two phones is significant: the Pixel 2 starts at $649 and the Pixel 2 XL starts at $849. The latest Pixel 2 series does away with the headphone jack in its new smartphones, something Apple did with the iPhone 7 a year ago.

Google released its flagship duo smartphones a few hours ago.

As if to take a leaf from Apple's book, Google has decided you should be able to get headphones that pair perfectly with your phone.

The Google Clips wireless camera can detect faces. The 6-inch Pixel 2 XL is following the market trend of reducing bezels as to keep up with the competition. What is even more remarkable is that it can translate up to 40 languages instantly. When it comes to the build, Google has made the Pixel 2 sleeker but feels like the previous version of the Pixel.

Hamilton surprised himself with pole lap
I didn't sleep well last night because we just didn't know if we would fix the issue. Raikkonen had qualified in second place behind Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton .

The Pixel Buds feature a touchpad on the right headphone so you can directly access Google Assistant or pause, play, or change the volume of your music.

This makes the Pixel 2 about the price of an 8 and the Pixel XL about the price of an 8 Plus (and still cheaper than the X).

On the software front, you get Android 8.0 Oreo.

As for battery the Pixel 2 houses a 2 700mAh battery while the larger XL 2 has a 3 520mAh battery.

Google Pixel 2 will be available in Black, Clear White, and Kinda Blue colors. However, it wasn't until near the end of the presentation that the company unveiled the Pixel Buds.

So if you feel like the Pixel phone is an expensive investment you'd better consider buying one as soon as possible and then use it for up to three years.
