Google Pixelbook Specs And Price Confirmed

However, in keeping with the difference between the two same-year models, the Pixel 2 is created to be a much smaller phone due to its inclusion of a 5-inch display which means not only has the general design of the Pixel 2 not changed year-over-year, but neither has the display size for the standard model, or its resolution for that matter. Similar to the Pixel 2, the Pixel 2 XL will feature 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, stereo loudspeakers, IP68 certification for dust and water resistance, a fingerprint reader, and a USB Type-C port.

Both phones have OLED screens, like previous year, but the Pixel displays don't cover the entire front of the devices, unlike Apple's new iPhone X and Samsung's S8 models. Google Pixelbook is 10mm thin and just 1kg in weight. Aside from that, there's a lot of neat software that will come in the phones, like Lenses and passive song ID, but most notably the headphone jack has already vanished on the second-ever Google phone. That leaves it way behind Apple and Samsung when it comes to sourcing important hardware components like displays and marketing and supporting the gadgets.

In a move similar to Apple's staid design of the iPhone 8, Google's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones look surprisingly similar to their predecessors. Naturally, Google Assistant is built in, so you can request tunes by voice.

In conjunction with the new hardware, Google is also introducing a number of new features to the Google Home family of devices.


One of the standout features of the Pixel Buds is the real-time translation. They come in three colors, Clearly White, Kinda Blue, and Just Black. Users can get up to seven hours of battery life in 15 minutes of charging. They work closely with the Pixel 2 for pairing and using the Google Assistant, and it can also translate languages on the fly. As for launching the Google Assistant, the Pixelbook features a dedicated key on the keyboard.

The device costs $49, and is available on October 19 - you can pre-order it starting today.

In addition, the Pixelbook will last for up to 10 hours of use on a single charge and support Google's new instant tethering feature for immediate Wi-Fi connectivity. Now Google has made the option live, and users can select between Voice I and Voice II now.

The camera unit on the Google Pixel 2 sports a "dual-pixel sensor", which supposedly divides every pixel into two - granting the same 'bokeh' effect as dual-lens camera devices like the iPhone or OnePlus 5.
