Google Courageously Removes Headphone Jack in Pixel 2

Regarding design, the latter variant Google pixel 2 XL spots a revamped design, as nearly every manufacturer had attained by this year.

It was a big day for Google.

As for the new Google Home speakers, there's a Max model focused on sound and a Mini model focused on getting Google Assistant in more places than ever.

Google Clips was a surprise announcement that adds another "lens" to your smartphone, able to transfer recorded content over Wi-Fi.

If you look at the back of the devices, there haven't been any significant changes compared to last year's flagships, except for the smaller glass panel, which now doesn't cover the fingerprint scanner.

Google is selling the Home Max for nearly $400, about $50 more than the HomePod. Available in December, it retails for $399, in either chalk or charcoal colors. The Chrome OS-powered Google PixelBook is extremely lightweight with just 1kg and is Google's slimmest laptop with 10mm thin body.

The laptop is lightweight at just 1KG, and it measures just 10mm in thickness. The new Pixelbook is high-end chromebook with a 12.3 inch display. For example, saying "good night" will make the assistant silence the phone, turn off the lights and set the alarm.

The Pixel Buds will use Google Translate to comprehend conversations in 40 different languages. The rear shooter maxes out at 4K 30FPS; 1080p at 120FPS is also available and so is 720p at 240FPS. That said, the Google Pixelbook is Google's Apple iPad Pro. The in-store sale will start from October 31.

Available in three configurations, Pixelbook is priced at $999 and people can pre-order them now.

The Reason Why Fox Sports Isn't Airing the NFL's National Anthem Today
Most of the standing players had their hands on their hearts and the other on the shoulder of their teammate in front. Fans go to watch a football game, if they want to see or hear protesters then they can go to one out on the streets.

So, we're now in the best segment of all.

The Pixel 2 XL comes in black or a two-toned black-and-white combination. A stunning OLED display with clear resolution and rich colors. The Pixel 2 XL has the most-impressive display of the two, hands down. Both the devices will be available in the following six countries, including India, Australia, Canada, Germany, UK, and the USA.

Similar to HTC U11, there is a squeeze feature on both the devices that allow you to squeeze the sides of the Pixel phones to quickly launch Google Assistant.

For the camera's software, Google is again turning to additions Apple made in previous years. Now, as you speak your Pixel phone's speaker will play aloud the translation in Italian. As expected, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack, though there is an USB Type-C adapter included in the box. The front facing 8-megapixel camera has an aperture of f/2.4. Which is the same price as the current Pixel in the USA ($649). The Pixel 2 XL 64GB costs Rs. 73,000, and the 128GB variant costs Rs. 82,000.

Google also souped up the already highly rated camera on the Pixel, boasting that it will take even better photos than the iPhone.

Marked 98 on DXOmark ratings, the rear camera comes with OIS and EIS technology to remove jerks and shaky footage.

Overall, Google has released five new videos which each run for about 1-2 minutes and provide some insight into various aspects of the Pixelbook. Correction helps to capture smooth video without jitter.

Rounding out the new offerings were touch-controlled Pixel Bud earphones, for $159, available for pre-order now and scheduled to become available in November.
