Made by Google.
That is the new catchphrase to represent a new line of products unveiled today by the technology giant.
Chief among those new products is Pixel, the first Smartphone made by Google both inside and out.
“With Pixel, we obsessed over every detail, from the industrial design to the user experience,” Google vice-president of product management Brian Rakowski said. “For those of you who have followed Google closely, that name may sound familiar to you because we’ve used the Pixel name in the past for consumer hardware products that represented an overall premium Google experience.”
Pixel and its slightly larger cousin, Pixel XL, are the first phones with Google Assistant built in, while Google Duo making it easy to video call with friends and family on Android or iOS.
To make sure you take lots of photos, the devices boast a 12.3 megapixel (MP) rear camera, 8 MP front camera and features unlimited storage for all photos and videos.
The phones have rounded edges to make it easier to grip, 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 on the front display and back glass featuring Pixel Imprint, a fingerprint sensor as well as a quad-core Snapdragon 821 processor and 4GB of memory. The five-inch Pixel comes with 2,770 mAh battery and 32GB of storage while the 5.5-inch Pixel XL sports a 3,450 mAh battery and 128GB of storage. The full list of specs for both phones can be found here.
The phones, which come in black or silver, are available for pre-order beginning today in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia and Germany and will begin shipping Oct. 20. Pixel sells for $649 U.S. and $899 Can.
