Action Launcher gains Pixel 2-style search bar with latest update

Here are all the other gadgets that Google announced last night

The Pixel 2 is the least expensive phone on the list, by a wide margin.

The Pixel debuted a year ago, with analysts estimating sales of more than 2 million, pushing Google to record amounts of non-advertising revenue. If you press down on the earbud, it invokes the Google Assistant, the Pixel's answer to Siri. Watch the video below for that demo. But away from all the attention, the two products that were arguably the most exciting were not the two phones.

So, does this mean you can look forward to the same quality of photos if you pick up a Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL? The story is clear now - AI is the future, and the Pixels, Google Homes, and everything else, exist just to get that AI into our homes. While it is illegal to be on a call while driving a vehicle, most people tend to disregard the law. Although the Pixel 2 XL has a more modern design than that of the Pixel 2, both phones will feature the same specs and features, including a new 12-megapixel camera that Google claims is better still than the camera on the first Pixel. Both support Always On Display, but the larger screen has better color accuracy – 100% DCI-P3 vs. 95%. You can have it play music, give you directions, place a phone call and whatnot, you know, all the standards. Google Lens will recognize those bits of information and will automatically store them for you.

Whether Pixel Buds look cooler than Apple AirPods, I'll let you judge for yourself. It's quite evident that all the people won't be getting the Pixel 2 or the 2 XL, but they for sure can get the Google search box at the bottom of the screen. The Pixel 2 XL is also a premium smartphone that feels great in your hand. With the two phones, there's no doubt that Google is after the two leaders in the industry - Samsung and Apple.

It's going to be hard for any company to push the boundaries of a new mobile phone by just focusing on hardware. They did bring waterproofing (IP67), stereo speakers and more storage. Do they have the same internals, or is one much better than the other?

With the iPhone X you'll be able to send virtual emojis that track the user's face.

The five-inch Pixel 2 with AMOLED display, priced at $649 and up, and the six-inch Pixel 2 XL with pOLED screen, which starts at $849, are set to begin shipping on October 19, although several reports indicate that early demand has already delayed the expected arrival of the larger device by almost a month. If you swipe left or right over the grey surface of the earbud, you adjust the volume.
