Google have released their first ever phones; the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. This is Google’s first attempt and they have pretty much nailed it. They have killed off the famous Nexus line, and what they have now is already looking much much better. here’s a quick overview of Goog;e’s new devices

Google Pixel:

  • 5 inch full HD AMOLED display
  • 32/128GB storage
  • 4GB RAM
  • Snapdragon 821 processor
  • 12.3MP rear camera (dual-LED)
  • 8MP front camera
  • Fingerprint
  • 2770 mAh battery
  • Gorilla Glass 4

The Google Pixel XL is similar in most aspects but has a beautiful 5.5 inch QuadHD display and a larger 3450 mAh battery to compensate for that.

Both devices come with a smarter, more personal Google Assistant. This is an upgraded Google Now. Assistant is currently only available on the Pixel phones, and is something they are pushing to be a centrepiece of your life. It’s smarter, more useful and a whole lot more fun.

 

The Pixel is something new for Google and with it’s bright vibrant screen and excellent hardware, I can see why they are looking to rival Apple on their iPhones. It even has the high price range to match!
