Google Pixel ‘phone by Google’ announced. Everything you should know

Google’s new Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones are now finally official. 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 — these two devices are built by HTC, but Google takes full credit for their design and makes this explicit with its “phone by Google” branding. 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.

 

The first phone with the Google Assistant built in.

  • Know when local places close, if it’s still going to rain on Saturday, and if your favorite team won last night.
  • Make a dinner reservation, set a reminder, and text your friend the info.
  • Play music by Sia then watch her music video, and check when she’s on tour
  • Relive your memories from last New Year’s Eve, or quickly find the selfies you took last weekend
  • Check if your flights on time, look up your itinerary, and find the address of your hotel.

Google Pixels Storage capacity? Never full

Never lose a memory with unlimited storage for your photos and videos, all stored at full resolution in Google Photos. And use Smart Storage to let Pixel help free up space when you need it. Just set it up once and say good-bye to those annoying “storage is full” warnings.

The highest rated smartphone camera. Ever.

With a best-ever 89 DxOMark Mobile score, Pixel’s camera lets you take brilliant photos in low light, bright light or any light.

  • 3MP
  • Large 1.55μm pixels
  • f/2.0 Aperture

Built for VR.

Daydream View is a VR headset and controller by Google that lets you explore new worlds, kick back in your personal VR cinema, and play games that put you at the center of action.
