Google Pixel 2, Home Mini show up in advertisement flyer in Canada

  • Google Home Mini

"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. Both Pixel 2 phones have a 12-megapixel rear camera, which earned a 98 on imaging company DxOMark's smartphone camera quality test (the first Pixel scored an 89).

It looks like Google is keeping that trend alive with the new 10mm-thick Pixelbook. Last year's Pixel family brought us two almost identical phones in different sizes, but this time around there are some pretty stark differences between the two. That leaves it way behind Apple and Samsung when it comes to sourcing important hardware components like displays and marketing and supporting the gadgets. Pairing them to your Pixel will be as easy as opening your charging case.

If you own an Android phone running Marshmallow or higher, you can quickly pair Google Pixel Buds with a feature called Fast Pair.

Certain apps, like Google Keep, are allowed on the lockscreen now, so you can turn on the device, whip out the pen, and immediately start taking notes.

Google says the Pixel's camera is also calibrated for augmented reality, and showed off a demo using virtual characters from Stranger Things.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL aren't much of a departure from the original Pixel phones in terms of design. As for launching the Google Assistant, the Pixelbook features a dedicated key on the keyboard. These circular gizmos come with gesture control for adjusting volume, switching songs, etc. Pixel Buds come in three colors black, white, and blue with a price tag of $159.

Pixel 2 XL retails starting at $849, with preorders kicking off today in six countries, including Australia, Canada, Germany, India, the United Kingdom and the US.

The Google Home Mini unveiled Wednesday is a button-sized speaker covered in fabric. One area where some difference should be expected is in battery capacity as the larger Pixel 2 XL comes loaded with a 3,520 mAh battery while the smaller Pixel 2 features a 2,700 mAh battery.

"They're simple to use and they anticipate your needs", Osterloh told the product launch event in San Francisco.

Pixelbook's battery lasts up to 10 hours, and if you run low on juice, 15 minutes of charging gets you up to two hours. Both will be sold The Google Store and select retailers; so far, Google's website lists only Best Buy and Staples.

Google chief executive Sundar Pichai said the new devices showcase the tech giant's artificial intelligence.
