The 5-inch display packs a FHD (that's 1920 x 1080) resolution, while the larger Pixel 2 XL features a curved 6-inch QHD+ (2880 x 1440) display. 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).

Coming to design, the rear panel of the both the second-generation Pixel devices have been redesigned. Google Pixelbook is 10mm thin and just 1kg in weight.

Both models continue to include fingerprint scanners on the back while competitors shift to either integrating biometrics into the screens or using facial recognition to authenticate users.

After launching its first ever smartphones - Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL - last year, Google is now ready to unveil their successors. That leaves it way behind Apple and Samsung when it comes to sourcing important hardware components like displays and marketing and supporting the gadgets.

A few hours later, he walked out of the Aluva sub-jail, waving and blowing kisses to his fans, who had gathered in large numbers. Another condition was that he should not tamper with evidence and appear before investigating officers as and when required.

The Google Pixel could be touted as one of the best smartphones released past year. Once the user switches to the Voice II, a huskier AI assistant will be activated across the devices including iOS apps, Pixel phones or the Google Home speaker.

Google Pixel 2 sports Google Lens, which can take pictures from your surroundings and recognizes phone numbers and addresses and asks follow-up questions about what you want to do with the information. Naturally, Google Assistant is built in, so you can request tunes by voice. The Active Edge feature also works when the phone is in a case, so you won't have to fearless the elements to take advantage of the quirky feature, or repeatedly ask for Google Assistant's attention if you're in a noisy environment.

Google also souped up the already highly rated camera on the Pixel, boasting that it will take even better photos than the iPhone.

As rumored, the Pixel XL 2 does ditch the headphone jack (a USB-C to headphone adapter is included in the box), and it also comes in 64 and 128GB storage options.

Google Home Max is the company's attempt at providing incredible quality sound with the usefulness of Google Assistant. It will start shipping from October 31 in the US, UK, and Canada markets where pre-orders begin today. The new Daydream View VR headset will be available in several regions later this year.

As with other ChromeOS products, Google's pitch for the Pixelbook is that it's simple to use.

Google announced Google Home Max at their event today.

With a 12.3-inch display and a 10-hour battery, the device is a convertible PC that can be used as a tablet and is sold starting at $999 for U.S. customers. They come in three colors, Clearly White, Kinda Blue, and Just Black. Google is offering the new phones through Verizon, though customers on other carriers can buy the phones through the Google stores.
