Google announces Home Mini and Home Max

Google announces Home Mini and Home Max

Google Max is powered by Smart Sound based on AI technology. Especially when you consider the Pixel 2 and 2 XL's 4k video capabilities.

The Pixel 2 is the smaller of the two devices as was the case previous year, measuring 145.7 x 69.7 x 7.8mm and weighing 143g, while the Pixel 2 XL measures 157.9 x 76.7 x 7.9mm and weighs 175g. We'll see those two go head-to-head later this year, but for now, keep it here at SlashGear for more from Google's Pixel 2 event!

The Pixel 2 is available in color options of, basically, just black, kinda blue, and clearly white. "The standard Pixel 2 features a 5" screen with an OLED display, while the Pixel 2 XL sports a massive 6" P-OLED screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a curved screen.

The Google Pixel 2 XL in Black and White. They have a feature capable of real-time language translation, meaning that someone can speak to you in a foreign language, and it will actively translate to your native language. Last week, Amazon announced the next generation of its Echo speaker, coming out in time for the holiday shopping season, will cost just $100, a price that Google decided not to match. Google sayas that it does not set different features for bigger device. The phones also pack 12.2MP f1.8 rear cameras, which have been rated a really impressive 98 by DxOMark, as well as 8MP front shooters.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL offer virtually identical hardware.

Both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL utilize the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and has 4GB of RAM.

The only place these two devices differ in terms of hardware is the battery capacity, with the Pixel 2 XL offering a slightly larger cell than the Pixel 2 at 3520mAh compared to 2700mAh.

There's no hard specs on the battery yet, but Google is promising "up to 10 hours" on a single charge.

Apart from looking up landmarks, books and music albums among others from Google Photos on the Pixel handset, users will also be able to take actions like asking Google Lens to copy URLs and contact information from a picture of a poster or business card. The headphones will be tethered together by a wire but connect to your phone via Bluetooth and feature Assistant built in.

In lieu of cutting-edge hardware and supply-chain muscle, Google is leaning more than ever on its digital assistant software and services like Google Play Music to sell the new devices.

Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are retailing at $649 and $849, Rs 61,000 and Rs 73,000 for India.

The smaller Pixel will sell for nearly US$650 while the Pixel XL will sell for nearly US$850.

The Pixel 2 is also Google's showcase for ARCore. Apparently, both smartphones are expected to come with eSIMs, which will let you change networks without changing SIM cards.
