Star Wars And Stranger Things Highlight Google's Pixel 2 AR Stickers

Star Wars And Stranger Things Highlight Google's Pixel 2 AR Stickers

The next iterations of the Google Pixel line are now official and match most of what was revealed in the leaks.

The Pixel 2 sports a 5-inch OLED display which has a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It also supports augmented reality (AR) and also features AR stickers. Like said earlier, both the phones have no 3.5mm headphone jack.

On the performance front, the phones pack in the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset which is now the best-in-class.

They have five hours of battery life, and a charging case that holds an additional 19 hours of charge.

Google vice president Rick Osterloh said Google's new devices are created to better integrate hardware and software with artificial intelligence. You don't need a new Pixel for it - you just need an Android phone with Google Assistant, meaning most new Android phones, as well as last year's Pixel (and the new Pixel 2, of course). The display on both the devices is the "Always On" one and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It also captures motion photos named Clips. Google offers a storage space options of 64GB and 128GB. The "Google Home Mini" is a small, round device for $49 that can be pre-ordered now and is to ship and be available in stores October 19.

The Pixelbook charges with USB-C, so you can use the same cord to charge your new Pixel 2.
