Google has finally announced its newest smartphone devices in the form of the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. The mega launch event on Wednesday revealed Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones.

The Google Translate app on Android and Apple's iPhone can already perform the same trick.

Apple takes a different route with its in-house designed mobile processor known as the A11 Bionic.

Coming to iPhone X, it will feature a bezel-less design with a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED True Tone display.

Google clarifies headphone jack removal for Pixel 2.

While dual-lens rear cameras first appeared on smartphones in 2011, the trend took off in earnest previous year, appearing on phones including the LG G5, Huawei P9, and of course the iPhone 7 Plus. And as great as the original Pixel's camera was, the detail and the lighting of the photos taken on the Pixel 2 are some of the best we've ever seen from a smartphone. Neither phone has a microSD card slot. Dare we mention that the Pixel 2 also lacks support for wireless charging, meaning that you won't be able to charge it and listen to music over the said USB-C port at the same time? We know that photos and videos consume most of the storage space on a smartphone.

First of all, the Google Pixel 2 XL only comes with a single camera on the back. There will be a toggle, so at least you can turn it off should this feature not work the way you want. The device will run on iOS 11-powered by A11 Bionic hexa-core chip inside paired with 3GB RAM.

Either way, Google's approach is smart for several reasons.

Is it wrong that all we want is for existing Chromebooks to get the Play Store?

If you plan on getting one of these smartphones, you'll have to spend more than $ 1000 for a model. Nearly silently, however, it also announced the release of its new Pixel Buds, which feature language translation in real time for the world's 40 most common languages. Siri has a long way to go before it can catch up with Google Assistant. In practice, you'll still probably get a solid day's operation out of all of these phones.

The Pixel 2 costs £629 with 64GB of storage and £729 for 128GB. To have even remotely quality bluetooth buds, you have to fork over a large sum of many, and even then, many are not worth it. What's more, it has dethroned the likes of Apple iPhone 8 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to sit on the top of DxOMark chart.

Instead of competing on hardware, Google has differentiated its products through software and services. Failing that, Google could use rating and reviews from Google My Business to pick the one most relevant. It's a built-in object recognition tool.

Rishi Chandra, vice president of product management for home products, explained how in the past year 100 million new questions have been answered by the Google Assistant, using featured snippets from search, songs from Spotify and videos from YouTube.

Going into Wednesday's event, Google, a division of Alphabet Inc. You don't have to pick up your phone or unlock it to see notifications.

Pixel 2 is backed by a 2700mAh battery which delivers up to 7 hours of power after 15 minutes of charge and Pixel 2 XL by a 3520mAh which also up to 7 hours of power after 15 minutes of charge.

This year's Pixel line-up bets big on artificial intelligence (AI), software and hardware.
