The Pixel 2 phones are available unlocked on the Google store starting at $649.

The Pixel 2 will be available in Just Black, Clearly White, and Kinda Blue, while the Pixel 2 XL comes in Just Black and Black & White.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be the first phones with eSIM support as far as I'm aware. The online order could be placed from today and it will be available on October 9 in store.

It features a 12.3-inch high-resolution touchscreen display, a backlit keyboard with soft-touch keys, and a newly-designed trackpad that uses "special touch-processing algorithms to make sure you can navigate with accuracy", Vokoun wrote.

With AR Stickers users will be able to add all sorts of interesting 3D characters and creatures to their photos as they're taking them.

The camera can also click "Live Photos" by recording up to three seconds of footage. The devices have IP67 water and dust resistance.

While Google's Android mobile operation system has been a huge hit, the company only started designing its own phones in-house in the past year or two.

Google also revealed its new Pixelbook, its next Chromebook - which company officials said is the thinnest, lightest laptop it has ever made. In the demo, a native English speaker and a native Swedish speaker had a conversation with each other, both using their native languages. Following Apple's lead, the new Pixels, like the newer iPhones, lack a headphone jack - they come with an adapter for plugging in headphones.

First, talking about the more premium device, i.e Pixel 2 XL. The technology allows you to squeeze the sides of the phone to perform different tasks, for example, the long squeeze can launch the Google Assistant. The Pixel Buds are Bluetooth headphones with inbuilt fast access to Google Assistant. Meanwhile, the Google Pixel 2 XL will set you back £799 for the 64GB model, and a heftier £899 for the 128GB version.

Mario Queiroz, VP of product management at Google, claims that the Google Pixel has 0.7 percent market share. The Home Max will retail for $399 and will be available in the month of December.

The smartphone comes with a 5-inch full HD display. The first generation was so excellent in its camera and software implementation that I've used it non-stop since I got it at launch past year. The updated Daydream features new custom built lenses with a wider field of view, for an immersive experience.
