Google, the American Technology Giant, is all set to launch its highly awaited smartphone Google Pixel. The smartphones look stunning and contain powerful components under the hood. Google Pixel offers excellent functionality and flaunts amazing features. The Google Pixel is a perfect combination of high-quality performance and stylish looks. It features a large screen with awesome visuals and packs a powerful battery. Users can enjoy the power of Android N and the newest Snapdragon processor. Google Pixel also boasts excellent camera quality and allow users to take DSLR type shots from the mobile camera.
It seems like the phone is made with a mindset to attract those people who usually tend to buy a phone by looking at its specifications rather than its price. The Pixel looks quite similar to the other phones available in the same price segment but goes far beyond the expectations of users. It is surely better than other devices running on Android because it has the latest version of the operating system which has been seen in the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 only. The phone will be available for sale after few days, but you can get the details through this article right here.
The Google Pixel features a 5 inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen which provides better accuracy than LCD screens with 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution and 441ppi density. Front of the phone has 69.0% screen-to-body ratio, which makes it ideal for watching movies and playing games in landscape mode. Dimensions of Google Pixel are 143.8 x 69.5 x 8.5 mm and it weighs 143 gm only so feels very light in the hands.
The phone has a slim profile and looks premium is hands. It is built in such a way that makes it suitable for every user, be it a professional or a teenager. However the blend of Glass and aluminium is slippery, so we advise our viewers to buy a cover along with the phone to keep undamaged for a longer time. The phone will be shipped in Very Black, Really Blue and Quite Silver colours.
The multi-touch capacitive touchscreen of the smartphone is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 which keeps the phone undamaged in the situation of accidental fall and avoids unwanted scratches and bumps. The phone also packs fast and accurate fingerprint reader to unlock the phone quickly. The Google Pixel also comes with accelerometer, proximity, barometer, compass and gyro sensors. It includes loud speakers, 3.5 mm jack and active noise cancellation with dedicated microphones. The body of the phone is Splash and dust resistant, but we do not recommend users to dive into the water with it.
The Google Pixel runs on latest Android 7.1 Nougat, which is smooth and user friendly. The famous Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset has been used in the phone and it is powered by Quad-core (2 x 2.15 GHz Kryo & 2 x 1.6 GHz Kryo) processor which ensures fast processing and fluid performance. The phone also offers sufficient 4GB RAM which allows users to run multiple applications simultaneously without facing any lagging issue.
There are two variants available for the phone that offer 32GB and 128GB internal storage capacity, which seems to be sufficient to store data. However, the storage cannot be expanded as there is no slot for micro-SD card. Google Pixel is equipped with the advanced Adreno 530 GPU for high-end graphics that along with the powerful processor takes user's gaming and multimedia experience to another level.
The biggest feature in both smartphones is the new improved Google Assistant who is capable of handling tasks more effectively than previous voice assistant Google Now. To invoke Google Assistant, you need to press the Home button longer, and after that, you can interact with it like a human and ask questions about a route, weather, a distance of one place from another, etc. Google Assistant can pull up information from third party apps like WhatsApp too.
Although the functionality of Google Assistant is very similar to the Siri in the latest versions of the iPhone, if you compare it with previous voice assistant of Google, then you will find it highly improved in terms of accuracy and features.
The camera quality of Google Pixel is outstanding and allows users to capture best shots in any environment effortlessly. The smartphone features advanced 12 MP rear camera with large f/2.0 aperture, 1/2.3 inch sized sensor and dual-tone LED flash. The large aperture allows more light to pass and dual LED flash brings realism in pictures taken in low light conditions.
For instant focusing and allow users to take shots from a distance or for moving objects the phone offers phase detection and laser autofocus technology with Electronic Image Stabilization. Users can take excellent pictures in any light condition using various camera modes such as HDR and panorama. The camera also packs features such as touch focus, geo-tagging and face detection for better shots in an easy way.
The Google Pixel also comes with 8MP front facing camera which allows users to take respected selfies in bright outdoors as well as indoors. You can shoot high quality 2160p videos at 30fps, 1080p videos at 30,60 and 120fps and slow motion 720p videos at impressive 240fps which is not possible by any other smartphone at the movement.
