Google Launches New phone called Google Pixel

Last evening, Google hosted an event in San Francisco, California to unveil its two smartphones, a VR Headset and the Chrome cast Ultra. Here we would talk about the Pixel smartphone, Google’s first ever handset carrying the company branding and designed inside out by Google.

The two phones, the Pixel and the Pixel XL have a size of 5inch and 5.5 inch respectively and are priced at $649 and $769 which is the same as the Iphone 7 and the 7 Plus. They are the first Android phones to support Google’s VR devices.

One feature which stands out the most is the upgraded Google Assistant which just like other assistant features like Siri not only helps you to type a message, find directions etc. but also engage in in-depth conversations to find out about what matters the most to you.
