Here's what's new in the new Google Pixel 2 Launcher

With the iPhone X earning a lot of hype over the last few weeks it's only natural that a lot of people would want to compare the iPhone X and the newly announced Google Pixel 2 XL.

One of the countries that residents have no access to the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL via the Google Store is Japan. You'll find that video below. Notwithstanding, the opening of the front camera incorporated into the iPhone 8 Plus is better than the Google Pixel 2, showing that it will tend to take better photos in darker conditions. It's our immediate thoughts after being on hand for the festivities.

Google's new product, as Engadget reports, is right out of Douglas Adam's "The Hitchhiker's Guide to Galaxy" trilogy.

Aussie pain continues with soggy T20 loss
If losing the ODI series wasn't enough for the Australian team , their captain Steve Smith has been ruled out for the T20 series . After a delay of nearly two hours, India were given six overs to chase 48 which they hunted down with three balls to spare.


What a week. Highlights below.

Tighter integration between software and hardware will give Google greater control over the Android ecosystem.

If we talk about specifications, both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL come with the similar specifications, except in terms of display and battery capacity. The pre-orders for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL begin on October 26. The built in microphones help handle nearly real-time translation. Facing out from your ear is a circular knob adorned by Google's G logo in either "just black", "clearly white" or "kinda blue" - the same colors Google offers for the Pixel 2 phone.

No. 2 Clemson tops Wake Forest 28-14 as Bryant injured
Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant and Wake Forest quarterback John Wolford rank back-to-back in the nation in yards per pass. The Tigers held Wake Forest scoreless the 51 minutes until Scotty Washington's 16-yard touchdown catch spoiled the shutout.


The Pixel Buds are priced at $159 and set to launch in November. The phones run on the latest Android Oreo operating system. According to Engadget, "there appeared to be virtually zero lag time during the translation", during Google's demonstration of the new product. The final files are 15 frame-per-second movie clips. This enables Google to mix physical stabilisation with machine learning to further smoothen out photos and videos. The 128GB variant of the device is available for Rs 82,000. The Google Home Max ($399) is a higher-end speaker with the company's built-in Google Assistant technology. They are available for preorder in the USA, priced at $159. In this case, we believe "Eve" to be the new Pixelbook. This means you can fold the screen all the way back and pretend it's a tablet. It is also working with companies like DC Comics and Disney on new apps.

The all-new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones support fast charging which isn't exactly a new feature for a Pixel device.
