Google Unveils AI-Driven Pixel 4 Phone, Nest Wi-Fi Smart Speakers

Google unveiled its highly anticipated Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL phones in NY today, after weeks of leaks (both unintentional and intentional) that may have served to dampen the impact of what's really an exciting leap in phone tech.

Advanced sensors support touchless hand gestures, with users able to operate their device without having to touch the screen. But the talk of the town, the Google Pixel 4 smartphones, are not likely to make their way to India, according to a TechCrunch report.

It can be connected to Pixel devices and Android 6.0+ devices with a single tap.

Both the devices are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset with Pixel Neural Core technology, 6GB of RAM and 64/128GB of storage.

The device will also have a 90-Hz refresh rate - this means smoother scrolling and better gaming.

As for the Pixel 4's photographic features, you get rear, wide, and telephoto cameras, as well as a "hyperspectral sensor" and a microphone. It also has a forward-facing camera. Portrait Mode has improved depth calculation and works better for people standing further back from the lens than before, and Night Sight promises to take even better photos than before in poorly lit conditions-even for astrophotography.

There's plenty more to like about the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, too. They will be available in Spring 2020, coming much later than the Echo Buds which ship at the end of October.

The Pixel 4 will use Google's Project Solei, a chip that powers its unique radar abilities and its hand-gesture features.

The Google Nest Mini is the smaller version of its smart speaker. There's also a wall mount mechanism.

Leaked Huawei Mate X unboxing video points to the foldable’s imminent launch
According to the title of the video , the lucky user who publishes this video has in possession the final version of Mate X. The device may be expected to launch this month in China according to Huawei Business Group Chairman Richard Yu.

Editor's Note: Pricing and availability for Australia was not confirmed.

Beyond the Pixel, Google is expected to show off a 13.3-inch touchscreen laptop called the Pixelbook Go, a Google Watch and an update to its Nest Mini speaker system.

There are two parts to Google's Nest Wi-Fi, the router itself and beacons that can be scattered around a home to increase internet strength in different rooms.

The Family Wi-Fi features in the Google Home app allows parents to pause Wi-Fi on devices at any time and block adult content.

A two-pack containing one router and one extender will sell for $399, or a three-pack with one router and two extenders will retail for for $549.

Meanwhile, the company announced its second-generation Pixel Buds earbuds, the follow-up to the original Pixel Buds, which was launched in 2017.

"[There hasn't] been the broad consumer or developer adoption we had hoped, and we've seen decreasing usage over time of the Daydream View headset", a Google spokesperson told Engadget in a statement.

Google's second generation Pixel Bud earphones don't exist yet but are supposed to ship next year in the U.S. and will cost $179. Google also says the buds will automatically adjust the volume depending on your surroundings. The device comes with a wireless charging case.
