Google’s New Smartphone: Pixel And Pixel Xl


For the first time, Google has announced its new smartphones, Pixel and Pixel XL. These smartphones can bring people the best of Google through hardware and software made by Google. Both Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones consist of Google Assistant and virtual reality capabilities. Their software includes capabilities with the Daydream virtual reality platform.

HTC, an electronics company, built these phones, but Google has taken full credit for its design. Both phones have an aluminum unibody and polished glass display. An imprint fingerprint sensor is embedded at the back of the phone. They come in three colors: Quite Black, Very Silver, and Really Blue. They even have a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Developers used 2.5 D Corning Gorilla® Glass 4 on the front display and back glass to accent the aerospace-grade aluminum body.

Rick Osterloh from Google said, “We’re committed to building hardware, and this is only the beginning. We carefully sculpted the surfaces of the phone, and rounded the edges to make it easy to grip.”

Generally, most phones have battery problems, which people need to deal with by buying battery banks. No matter what you’re using your phone for, you’ll need a battery that lasts all day and charges fast. Both of Google’s new smartphones take only 15 minutes to charge for 7 hours.

The phone’s camera has a 12.3-megapixel resolution, 1.55-micron pixels, and an f/2.0 aperture. It uses Starburst, which enables users to take a quick succession of images. According to Google, “It is the shortest capture time on any mobile camera ever.”

Some Specifications Of Google’s New Smartphone:


Google Assistant accesses Google’s extensive and ever-growing search engine to answer user queries. It even reads emails and calendar entries and offers personalized specs for your entire day. It can create shopping lists and even flip a coin, as demonstrated in the debut.


Daydream is a simple and high-quality virtual reality system. Clay Bavor introduced and explained the VR system, mentioning that JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them would be exclusive to the system.

The fabric-based headset allows users to slide in their Pixel and will work with every Daydream-prepped phone. It weighs 30 percent less than “comparable devices” and is roomy enough to accommodate glasses.


Both smartphones will be equipped with the newest Android operating system, Android 7.1 Nougat. Security and software updates will be available directly from Google.

Google’s new smartphone is available for pre-order today starting at $649 in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany, and Australia. Pre-orders in India will begin on October 13.
