And the first one in the race is Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL. Mark way for the sequel: Google on Wednesday announced its two new phones in its Pixel series it is follow up devices to last year’s Pixel smart phones.
According to Google CEO Sunder Pichi “It is hard to develop exciting new products based on the hardware alone “. According to Google it is in a transition from a” mobile first” company to an “AI (artificial intelligence)” business.
Like the previous Pixel phone, Google is leveraging the capabilities of Artificial Intelligence” infused with Google Assistant. Real time language translation and object recognition that provides immediate contextual information will going to change everything.
Both the Pixel and Pixel XL will run on latest version of Android i.e. Android 8.0 OREO. the XL has 6 inch pOLED display with an 18:9 display format whereas Pixel 2 comes with 5 inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080*1920 pixels and both the devices are Dust and Water resistant.

These two Google smart phone will going to give iPhone some hard times, even though iPhone stands out in some better ways like wireless charging and face recognition dot feature will pixel 2 and Pixel XL clearly lacks. Google rather than focused and putting efforts on looks of the phone , Focused on main hardware and machine learning AI functionality of the phone will give rise to the new era.
