Google's 3 most ambitious new devices aren't smartphones

The white 128GB Pixel 2 is also delayed by two to three weeks, while the 64GB version in both white and blue are suffering even longer setbacks of up to 7 weeks.

Getting rid of the headphone jack in the new Pixel mobile has also helped Google in capturing the opportunity to introduce the all new Pixel Bud earphones. While Google has not released a full list of the languages supported by Pixel Buds, it did showcase at the launch event, several of the languages, for which users will be able to get real-time translations.

As it launched the second generation Pixel phones, Google said that while breakthroughs in new hardware technology were becoming increasingly hard to achieve, the next big steps forward will come from AI or machine-learning. Speaking of the price, the Pixel 2 64 GB variant is priced at ₹61,000 whereas the 128 GB storage variant is priced at ₹70,000.

We learnt quite a bit with the first Pixel in India and one of the things we're doing is increasing our marketing investment, really to explain the product. This means the smartphones may reach until Android R. From 2017 to 2020, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be eligible for updates.

Then, as they talk, the Pixel smartphone that the Pixel Buds are connected to plays the translation out loud. Google is borrowing from Apple's playbook as it takes on its rival in high end of the smartphone market.

Camera of the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL is nearly the same. Prices for the iPhone X start at $1,000. The platform operates in 40 different languages.

The Google Home Mini unveiled Wednesday is a button-sized speaker covered in fabric.

The launch comes in the wake of Apple's announcement of a new line of iPhones, and Amazon's upgrades to its Echo speakers powered by its Alexa digital assistant.

The upcoming death of bezel also pushed Google's move to P-OLED for Pixel XL. The Google Home Max, on the other hand, is billed as a high-end audio device, larger than the home and with more sound capabilities.
