Google said they will be available in November for $159 in the U.S. and are available to pre-order today
Apart from the two phones, the company has also launched other gadgets such as Google Home Product, a laptop-cum-tablet, a small lens for candid shots and Pixelbuds. The battery will last up to five hours while the case can fully recharge Pixel Buds up to five charges, says Google. The Pixel 2 XL will be available in two storage options: 64 GB and 128 GB.
Google talked about most of the Pixel 2's new feature on stage but failed to address what might turn out to be the best feature of Pixel 2 series. The Google Home Mini is a small round device costing $49 that can be pre-ordered now and is to ship and be available in stores October 19.
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.
Google Clip is the camera that automatically clicks photos. Pricing for the Pixel 2 starts at $650, while the Pixel 2 XL is $850. This is something smarter than most of the smart devices as you can translate your own words in real-time using the headphones, and the output will be played through the speaker of your smartphone.
The wireless headphones incorporate a touchpad on the right-hand headphone, allowing individuals to play/pause/adjust music volume, or directly access Google Assistant. Both run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box and ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack.
In addition to the new Pixel smartphones, EE will also offer devices from Google's wider ecosystem. When the Google Pixel Buds "hear" the other person's words, it will translate them to the user's language. The price tag of Pixel 2 devices is $649 and the price tag of Pixel 2XL devices is $849.
The smartphone camera has AR Stickers and Pixel users would get free unlimited storage on Google Cloud to store photos and videos in the original quality.
