UK retailer Carphone Warehouse has announced the latest event within the technological industry, the launch of the Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google Pixel. The event, which will take place in San Francisco will about everything that Google does hence the company, will also unveil other products the likes of a smart home hub, a Wi-Fi router among others.
In what seems like an accident, the phone-seller has published a clutch of photos, slides, and specs way before the release of the Pixel and Pixel XL phones. The images have revealed the same devices that were in previous leaks, and which have the Google’s “G” logo branding. They also have the new tagline: “Phone by Google.” Previous leaks suggested that there will be two phones; a big and small one. However, they are more of less the same to every other phone the likes of Apple and Samsung.
Google Pixel launch: What to expect
The latest leaks about Google Pixel phones reveal full specs for the phone. Some of those that are easy to identify include 5-inch and 5.5-inch displays, 4GB of RAM as well as Snapdragon 821 processors. Besides, there will be the option of being able to choose between 32GB and 128GB of internal storage. A USB C port will be available and a fingerprint scanner on the back for getting into the phones.
The leak also shows the Live Cases which will be bought alongside the phones. The cases are specially made for this particular phone and they match the phone’s wallpapers. However, there is a rumor that the phone users will get some extra features the likes of photo storage with Google Photos. But apparently, nothing much is being said about the pricing, availability and release dates of the new phone.
Google has another notion of technology: the digital assistant
The use of AI has increasingly become a fertile battleground for many tech firms. Apple Inc.(NASDAQ:AAPL) started the race of AI with Siri back in 2011 and Microsoft Corporation(NASDAQ:MSFT) followed soon after with Cortana. Earlier this month Google is the unexpected; the release of the chat app Allo.
Jan Dawson, an analyst at Jackdaw Research says “In and of itself, Google making a speaker is vaguely interesting, but it really is the software and the Google assistant that makes Home an interesting device.” This is a mere implication that Google intends to compete with the gurus that have been on the market longer.
However, Google pixel remains the in-thing for now. Meanwhile, Alphabet Inc’s closing price was $804.06, a rise of 1.42 or 0.18% from the previous session.
