Google Pixel Phones

The first phone made by Google – PIXEL.


This time, Google has manufactured his own hardware and released two phones namely PIXEL and PIXEL XL . The interesting thing is it comes with VR headset ( Virtual Reality).

Differentiated primarily by the size and resolution of their screens — 5-inch 1080p display on the Pixel and 5.5-inch Quad HD panel on the XL.

Both Pixel models are powered by the latest Snapdragon 821 processor and run a specialized version of Google’s Android software, which includes support for the Daydream virtual reality platform that was announced at Google I/O in the summer.

First look on PIXEL phones: 





Five Key features of PIXEL Phones:


  1. Meet your Google Assistantyour daily helper – Tell it to do things. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help. Just start with “Ok Google”.
  2. Endless cloud storage.-free unlimited storage for full-resolution images and videos shot with the Pixel. That’s much like the standard Google Photos backup ability, but takes off the size limit and compression, even on 4K video shot with the new phone.
  3. Amazing Camera Experience– Every moment, every memory, captured in bright, beautiful detail. The fast-to-launch, quick-to-shoot camera has large pixels so you get sharp photos — even in low light.
  4. Connectivity and communications. The company has also paid close attention to the Pixel’s endurance on the move, adding fast charging that gets you up to 7 hours of power in 15 minutes of charging. Google has also built in 24-hour live phone support right into the Pixel‘s software, so that a tech support operator can see exactly what’s on your screen and thus help you better. And yes, the Pixel comes with Google Duo preinstalled, if you’ve been hankering for the company’s video chat app.
  5. Made for mobile virtual reality.The Pixel is the first Daydream-compatible phone and Google today also announced the $79 Daydream View headset to accommodate the Pixel for VR use.
