Pixel Buds Features, Specs: How Real-Time Translation Works

But before you go ahead and make a decision about your purchase, here are some things you should know about the new Pixel phones.

The Pixel 2 takes several shots with each shutter snap and stitches them together with Google's clearly brilliant algorithms, turning out one final, oft-incredible shot (the Galaxy S8 does something similar, too). Google did not reveal the number of Pixel 2 smartphones sold this year.

But what does that mean in practical terms?

He said that the removal of the 3.5mm port for the headphone jack has let Google improve their audio and digital experience for the users because they are looking forward to bezel-less phones in the future.

Apple has often been criticized for its slow intake of smartphone technology compared to Samsung, but it appears that Google's entry into the hardware market will relieve some pressure off Cupertino's shoulders.

According to DxOMark, a trusted website for camera reviews, "the iPhone 8 Plus is the best-performing mobile device camera we have ever tested". Take a look at some of the snaps below. Then you'll need a phone with Android 6.0 or higher. The Pixel 2 XL, on the other hand, is a bit pricey with its $849 price-tag. If two bakeries are located on 24th street, which one will Google call? This type of innovation from Google is what Apple used to be known for, and if anything, it will just increase competitiveness and quality among all smartphone companies.

This may prove to be annoying for a couple of reasons, the main one being that if you are a passenger in the auto, your device may switch automatically to do not disturb mode. It also offers real-time language translation, allowing two people speaking different languages to be able to communicate with each other in real time. That said, this feature will only work to full effect with a Pixel phone. You are also getting free unlimited cloud storage.

Instead of competing on hardware, Google has differentiated its products through software and services. And while Google may be late to the wireless-audio party, the search giant has come up with something that outmaneuvers the AirPods in some important, and very cool, ways.

Google also posted a video sample of the phone.

Nevertheless, Google will still provide a USB Type-C to 3.5 mm headphone jack dongle inside the box and one can deal with that, things shouldn't be that hard. It works pretty much like Shazam, except that you'll not have to open an app.

Google continues to improve its artificially intelligent software, Assistant, aiming to make it available on TV, laptop, or through one's vehicle.
