Google Pixel 2 XL Price, Specs, Pre-Orders, Features

Posted October 09, 2017

At Google's launch of new kit this week in San Francisco, Rick Osterloh, senior vice president of hardware, said a fearless thing. It offers vocal translations straight into your ear along with your music and all the power Google got in reach at all times. As it did at last year's event, Google emphasized the importance of building adequate hardware to house AI in order to optimize performance. There's the 5-inch Pixel 2 with a crystal-clear cinematic OLED display, which comes in Just Black, Clearly White and Kinda Blue.

To sum things up, it nearly sounds like Google is obsessed with placing information at users' fingertips with the Pixel 2, including breaking down language barriers, not to mention that it won't burn as big a hole in your pocket compared with the iPhone X.

There is an adaptability to the double camera that can't be coordinated by a solitary focal point unit, and focuses should without a doubt be deducted from the Google Pixel 2 camera for this oversight. Instead the earbuds are held firmly in place thanks to a small adjustable loop in the cable which joins the earbuds.

The Pixel 2, which comes in three colours, is set to start at US$649 (RM2,745) for the 64GB version, or US$849 (RM3,585) for the same version of the XL. If you are a passenger playing music or connecting your phone to the auto, then it may still determine you as the driver rather than the passenger.

Google's new product, as Engadget reports, is right out of Douglas Adam's "The Hitchhiker's Guide to Galaxy" trilogy.

This design also ensures wearers can still hear ambient noise while offering surprisingly rich sound quality with reasonable bass, similar to wearing open-backed headphones. Want Assistant to work with the buds? When the user speaks to the assistant "OK Google, what's this song?" the user can see a listening bar at the bottom. It's also being used to enable that always-listening feature on the lock screen for easier song/artist discovery. Google says it determines the important bits by registering "device motion and Bluetooth connections", so being paired to a Bluetooth connection in the auto appears to be a necessity. It comes integrated with your Pixel smartphone. This limitation is due to the need for the translate app to route some audio through the earbuds and some through the handset's speaker.

Version 29 of Action Launcher, one of the most popular third-party Android launchers on the Google Play boasting of over a million downloads, now includes the Pixel 2-style bottom-placed search bar. Both phones have mostly identical hardware, with the exception of the screen. Something it is plainly greatly quick to do having purchased out HTC's smartphone division for over $1 billion as of late.
