Google has at last presented its two new smartphones. With these two new smartphones Google aims to compete with Apple and its iPhone 7 on the market. In this article you get to know about the ‘made by google’ smartphones. These are the features, price and release date of the new Google Pixel and the Google Pixel XL.
Google Pixel: The compact option
The Google Pixel is the most compact smartphone of the two launched by the company. Its screen has dimensions of 5 inches and a full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. This seems more than enough for a phone with a screen this size. No Quad HD in this model, but the resolution will be more than sufficient for a phone with such a small screen. Of course, being a smaller smartphone, with a smaller screen, the power consumption is lower, and the battery is only 2,770 mAh. The dimensions of this release are 143.8 x 69.5 in x 8.6 mm, with a weight of 143 grams.
Google Pixel XL, the big flagship
Although not very different, the Google Pixel XL comes betting on a higher size with a 5.5 – inch screen. It features a Quad HD screen with 2,560 x 1,440 pixels resolution. Also, its battery has superior capacity of 3,450 mAh to provide autonomy for the smartphone to power the larger screen. As the dimensions of the smartphone are concerned, we have a size of 154.7 x 75.7 x 8.6 mm. The weight of this version is 168 grams.
High level performance
The two smartphones have the same technical characteristics. Since we can not expect otherwise, the new Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL can boast of having higher performance by including the most current Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor with four cores, and capable of a frequency of 2.15 GHz clock. Meanwhile, its RAM is 4GB, and the smartphone is available in two versions, with 32GB memory and 128GB, and can’t be extended using microSD. In any case, more memory is not necessary because we have unlimited cloud space.
The most deals in our smartphone are the photos and videos. And with cameras every time we find more quality videos and photos that increasingly take up more space. What is the solution? SD Cards? They could be. However, it is not the case with the Google Pixel, because they do not have the ability to expand the memory via a microSD card. So? Google offers us unlimited space in the cloud to sync photos and videos automatically, and most importantly, in their original quality, which will certainly be very positive for all users.
The best mobile camera
Each time a new mobile is launched, it is said to have the best camera on the market. However, in this case, yes, we are talking about something real. The Google Pixel has the best camera of all mobile market. DxOMark, who have analyzed the smartphone, gave a score of 89 surpassing the iPhone 7. Three main points have contributed to this 12.3 – megapixel camera that is included in the smartphone. Good optimization between camera and processor to manage the photos in the best way possible, and to capture photos burst and HDR +. Besides all that, the mobile is capable of recording video in 4K, and has a image stabilization not found in other phones (all this has been achieved without a dual camera).
Sleek and Elegant Design
With a thickness of 8.6 mm, the Google Pixel is a fine smartphone in its two versions. Obviously, one of them is bigger than the other, being one of superior size. However, Google Pixel can boast a sober and elegant design. Actually we only see the Google logo on the back, and nothing else. The smartphone is made up of aluminium casing. And without forgetting has a very characteristic appearance, with a plastic section found around the camera.
These smartphone comes in three versions, one is silver, another is a version of black color, and other special limited version of dark blue color.
Availability and Pricing
Regarding the release date and availability of Google Pixel, I must say that these phones are not particularly cheap. They will be available to book from today in English-speaking countries like the US, UK, Australia and Canada and will come to India on October 13. In any case, its price of $ 650, but probably the biggest version will be more expensive, as well as versions with an internal memory of more capacity.
Anyways, the arrival of the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL are announced with the Google Assistant, which promises to be far better than existing assistants with leap in Machine Learning and AI capabilities.
