Google posts first unedited Pixel 2 camera photos and they look stunning


The Galaxy Note 8's camera features optical and digital zoom, while the Google Pixel 2 XL's camera reportedly only features digital zoom. So, when Google announced the launch of its new Pixel devices, well after most of the big launches of the year were done, the pressure was on the Mountain View giant to come up with something that matched up to the high standards set by everyone else. As you can see, the images look stunning, so it looks like whatever Google has done under the hood has worked.

They run on octa-core 2.35 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform with a 4 GB RAM. While the Pixel 2 XL has done a reasonable job of minimizing its bezels, the bezels on the smaller 5-inch Pixel 2 are very much on the large side.

"You can also take high-quality portrait shots with the flawless background blurs, from both the front and back camera". You get a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter in the box, but if you lose it, a new one will cost you $20 (double what Apples adapters cost). Both phones have mostly identical hardware, with the exception of the screen.




Click through the images to see examples of Google's "Motion" feature, which creates mini clips in the style of Apple's Live Photos, and to check out the new software-driven Portrait mode that blurs the background behind your subject - another feature Apple got to first. Still, other manufacturers such as Samsung have managed to keep the headphone jack while including the features noted above.

With the iPhone X you'll be able to send virtual emojis that track the user's face. If you're out traveling the world, you'd probably need to speak to a local person and with that both the Pixel 2 and the Pixel Buds will be a valuable duo as an ally. You can preorder one starting with 27 October and the launch date is on November 3. Preordering is already available and shipping will get to customers in December. So far testing in the event has showed us that they are both giving a great user experience.

Google will be opening these stores in Los Angeles and New York City - hardly a shocker given the population of those two areas. For example, fixed storage: the iPhone X comes in 64GB and 256GB varieties, while the Pixel 2 XL offers 64GB or 128GB. The app screenshots actually explain a bit more.
