It is the first phone with the new Google Assistant built in When you touch and hold the home button or say the “hot word”, Google Assistant starts its action. Google has made the most dramatic change to their logo since 1999 and have replaced their signature serif font with a new typeface called Product Sans.
Google’s Pixel phones aren’t expected to reach the same level of shipments in the beginning, but considering that they do come with the latest specs and software, the popularity of these phones will surely increase gradually. However there is a slight problem, and that is most of the Pixel phones have been sold out via pre-order on the Google Store.
Google just announced the Pixel and Pixel XL yesterday and the people who have been waiting for the company’s new handsets can be happy about it. Google confirmed that even though the Nexus series is dead with the launch of Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL smartphones, it will continue to support Nexus devices.
Google on Monday announced its new Pixel phone, which will initially be available for preorder in the USA exclusively with Verizon Wireless. Many see Google cutting loose too quickly with relatively recent hardware given that the Pixel will have so many exclusives.
The smaller Pixel has a 5-inch Full HD AMOLED display, quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor, 4GB of RAM and a 2,770mAh battery. The OnePlus 3’s 64GB of storage hits a happy medium, at a much, much cheaper price, and you can still upload unlimited up-to 12MP camera snaps on it using Google Photos.
Also, while the new smartphones were launched in multiple color options including Very Silver and Quite Black, and the Really Blue limited variant will not be released in India. Both the Pixel and Pixel XL have a fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone.
