Google Pixel smartphone announced with lots of hardware and software goodies!
Its finally here! Google has announced today what we’ve been expecting for almost a year now, the Google Pixel smartphone which will replace the Nexus line of handsets.
Google says that Pixel has the best smartphone camera ever and it offers unlimited, no hustle, Google Photos cloud storage. Both Pixel smartphones feature an Aluminium unibody and polished glass combination, it comes with an AMOLED display (5.5-inch Quad HD / 5-inch Full HD), Qualcomm’s quad-core 64-bit Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB of RAM, 8 and 12.3MP cameras, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, UBS-C, fingerprint sensor, it has the 3.5mm headphone jack (yay!) and a battery that will ofer 7 hours of usage on a 15 minutes recharge. On the 5″ model there’s a 2,770 mAh battery, whereas the 5.5″ comes packed with a 3,450 mAh battery (non-removable on both).
In addition, the Google Pixel smartphone has its own 24/7 online support embeded in Nougat, Android updates will run and install in the background (no more “Loading…” headaches), are VR ready, and a plethora of silicon-made (Google Earth/Google Trends inspired) covers. If you are coming from an iPhone, Google prepared an app which you will find preinstalled on the Pixel, that will help to easily migrate all of the Contacts and files.
Google will sell the Pixel for $649 (about £510) in Quite Black, Blue (limited edition) and Very Silver colours. Internal storage options are 32GB or 128GB.
