Google Pixel 2 can activate Do Not Disturb mode automatically when driving

Google leverages its AI smarts to beat Apple in the camera game Here are all the other gadgets that Google announced last night

Google has officially launched its Pixel 2 line up earlier this week. This was further updated to 90 a few months ago when DxO Mark updated the way it tested smartphone cameras.

Interestingly enough, the Mountain View company skipped the technical-sounding tone and opted for a more personal approach by employing the talents of some YouTube stars, presumably so they would appeal to more people. This device is compatible only with a handful set of phones such as Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 2, Galaxy S7, S8, S8+, and iPhones.

Imagine you're in Italy trying to order a meal, suggests Google's blog.

Readers should note that the "Now Playing" always-on music identification feature that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have, is not the same as the song identification feature of Google Assistant. The device also scored 84 in exposure and contrast, 83 in colour, 95 in autofocus, 57 in texture, 80 in noise, 86 in artifacts, and 93 in stabilisation, taking the video score to 96.

"In the coming weeks, your Assistant on Pixel will also be able to help with your daily routines, just by using one simple phrase", Mario Queiroz, Google's vice president and general manager for phones, wrote yesterday in a blog post. Verizon will go up to $300 for your old smartphone, which although slightly less than offered by Google, can still be considered a pretty decent figure.

But Google's pitch for why its hardware is different had little to do with the hardware itself.

With augmented reality stickers, Pixel users can add emojis and virtual characters to photos. If you've carefully looked at both the devices, then you might have noticed that the Google Search box which used to appear on the top of the devices now seems to be at the bottom.

On Wednesday, Google demonstrated how every hardware product had received an AI makeover. It also has a 13-megapixel front-facing camera with soft LED flash and a secondary 2-megapixel camera.

Be that as it may, the iPhone 8 Plus has been applauded in specific divisions, and shouldn't be composed off as a pointless camera telephone by any methods.

The Apple iPhone X will run on iOS 11 and will be backed by a 2716mAh battery. Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, both the devices are offering in 64 GB and 128 GB storage variants. It builds on Google's advancements in computer vision and machine learning, combined with Google knowledge graph which underpins Google Search.

The Pixel 2 will cost you Rs. 61,000 / Rs. 70,000 for 64GB/128GB repectively and the Pixel 2 XL will cost you Rs. 73,000 / Rs. 82,000 for 64GB/128GB respectively. In fact, so much so even compared to phones with dual cameras according to DxO Mark the Pixel 2 retains a lot of detail, much more than other single-camera phones.
