And both of these phones lack a headphone port, so that's a loss all around. They are straight out of the future and if they work even half as good as what Google is claiming, the Pixel Buds will set the tone for the world of future where there will be nearly no language barriers. It comes with a max storage of 256GB, which should be enough for most people.
Both devices get a number of improvements over their predecessors.
Both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ outpace their counterparts from Google in the screen size department.
What about the iPhone X then?
So, while a dual-lens camera might use two simultaneously shot photos to create a single, good-looking portrait, for instance, the Pixel 2 can effectively arrive at the same result by using the example of many, many other similar photos. The phones run on the latest Android Oreo operating system. The specs inside are powerful, including Snapdragon 835, 4GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage options.
For example, the $249 Google Clips, set to arrive soon in the USA, "is a totally new way to capture genuine, spontaneous moments - all powered by machine learning and AI", Osterloh noted. However, the strap between them might maybe make them harder to lose.
One comes included with the phone, but if you lose it you'll have to spend £20 to replace it. So, the Google #Pixel 2 series has introduced a new feature, dubbed 'Do Not Disturb.' With this functionality turned on, the smartphone will detect when the user is in a moving vehicle and will stop alerting them of any incoming calls or texts. You can preorder one starting with 27 October and the launch date is on November 3.
All four phones can be fast-charged out of the box, which is great for getting some juice in a hurry before heading out. It's up to you how much of a loss that is, though: wireless charging still doesn't have the range to be particularly useful yet.
Besides, not all the Pixel features launched with the Pixel and Pixel XL are pushed to the other Android phones. After informing us that only a handful of people in the world are qualified to be building machine learning models, Pichai spoke about AutoML, an automated machine learning model Google has been working on, which he claims now slightly surpasses existing hand-built ones while using significantly less processing power. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ were springboards for Samsung's own personal assistant, Bixby, earlier this year, and it's triggered by pressing a dedicated button on the side of the phone.
