Inside Google's new hardware

Pixel Buds were priced at $US159 dollars and will be released in the United States at the start of November.

Today Google confirmed the previous rumors that it would release a new Chromebook called the google Pixelbook.The new Pixelbook will be able to fold its 12.3-inch display so that it can be used as a tablet.

CAPE TOWN- Google unveiled its latest Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones.

The Pixel 2 XL will come in Black colour as well as a Black and White model.

"What if they could help you get things done without having to look at your phone?".

But along with the expected hardware upgrades, Google's new kit also packs its most developed artificial intelligence software to date, marking a major step up and what the company says should be a significant selling point for the new devices.

On Wednesday, Alphabet Inc's Google unveiled the second generation of its Pixel smartphone along with new voice-enabled home speakers, redoubling its commitment to the hardware business as it competes with a surge of devices from Apple Inc and Amazon.com Inc. But they also come with a pocket-sized case that doubles up as a portable charger, allowing users up to 24 hours of listening time in total.

The higher-end speaker can stream music from YouTube Music, Spotify, Google Play Music and other services.

The Pixel 2 sports a 5inch AMOLED display while the 2 XL will use a 6inch P-OLED display. The Pixel 2 XL will be available from November 15, and both devices will be sold at over a thousand retail stores across the country in addition to Flipkart.

Pixel 2 XL will be available in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany, India and Australia. It comes with Google AI that can make the images batter and is available for $249.

The 5in Pixel 2 and the larger 6in Pixel 2 XL were both revealed at a special event in San Francisco.

The Pixel Buds are Google's answer to Apple AirPods - they are wireless headphones that work with Google Assistant, but can also handle real-time translation in 40 languages. This Mini version of Google Home would feature kind of the same features like the original Google Home speaker, however the compact design and cheap price tag might attract new users' eyeballs.
