A slew of new Google gadgets have just been unveiled at the Google Pixel event, and the emphasis is heavily on intelligence and user-friendliness. The Pixel Watch, Pixel 7 Pro, and the new Pixel 7 are the highlights. Google unveiled the Pixel Watch, a rival to the Apple Watch, and the Pixel 7 & Pixel 7 Pro smartphones, which are considered direct competitors of the iPhone 14 lineup.
At Google’s announcement, we got some hands-on time with the new products to compare them to Apple’s most recent product selection.
Google Pixel 7 And 7 Pro
The Pixel 7 is available at a price of 599$, and it features a 6.3-inch display featuring a hole-punch camera slot, a matt aluminum shell, and Gorilla Glass Victus on both the front and back of the mobile. It has a Google-designed Tensor G2 processor and 8GB of RAM, as well as a dual-camera setup on the back with that amazing “cinematic blur,” wide and ultra-wide lenses.
The more expensive Pixel 7 Pro has a 6.7-inch screen (the same as the 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max), and a Tensor G2 chip that features 12GB RAM.
This Google device supports a triple-lens camera which has a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens and a 48-megapixel telephoto lens. Let’s not forget about the 50-megapixel wide lens which is also there to enhance our photos. It can be purchased for a starting price of $899. Real Tone for accurate skin tones, Cinematic Blur for artistic portraiture, 30x Super Res Zoom, and Macro Focus are only a few of the Pixel 7s’ camera’s features.
On both devices, there is a new 2x zoom setting as well. It does not require any up-sampling to get the final 12-megapixel image because it crops into the center of the primary camera sensor. It is comparable to what Apple is doing with the iPhone 14 Pro camera, and like the iPhone, it is accessible for Portrait Mode and is relatively well suited for it.
Additionally, the Pixel 7 smartphones offer an amazing battery life that extends to 24+ hours easily. It offers fast wireless charging, fingerprint unlocking, and so much more. Oh, and yes, my going-to-be-favorite feature is the coughing and snoring detection functionality that’s been introduced to the sleep-tracking feature. Another thing Google has worked on in this model is a VPN feature that will be available soon.
Google Pixel Watch
Google also unveiled the Pixel Watch, a watch that competes with the Apple Watch, along with the Pixel 7 smartphones. The round display of the worth $350 Pixel Watch distinguishes it from the Apple Watch’s rectangular display. Do remember that it’s just the starting price of the Google Pixel watch.
The price for the Wi-Fi and GPS version is $350; the price for the LTE version is $400, and there is just one size available, 41mm. In terms of fitness, it contains a heart rate sensor and can record ECGs, but as of right now, it cannot measure blood oxygenation; this feature might be added in the future.
Pixel tablet Is All Set To Tease Your Smart Home Displays Next Year
While Google did show off a few fresh views of the Pixel Tablet, this was really an elongated teaser for the upcoming release of the updated tablet. Since the release of Google’s Android 12L, it’s clear that Google is committed to making Android a better fit for tablets.
In its design, the Pixel Tablet attempts to blend the distinction between a stationary huge tablet with one of Google’s Home Hub smart TVs. When placed in the loudspeaker dock for recharging, the Tablet also serves as an intelligent display that may be used to view important data. It can take Google Assistant instructions and act on them.
The Pixel Tablet, thanks to its wireless charging and speaker combo, is perfect for leisurely exchanging with other members of the home. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that Google has plans to showcase the Pixel Tablet with a performance-based accessory, such as a magnetic folio keypad.
There Was Some Incremental Growth for the Pixel During This Year’s Event
This year’s Made by Google program featured minor upgrades to the Google Pixel and an anticipated entrance to Google’s Wear OS first-party release, the somewhat unexciting Pixel Watch.
Google’s sales numbers lag well behind those of Apple and Samsung, but the company plans to increase Pixel shipments next year and further increase them the year after. Judging on what Google presented on Thursday, the Google Pixel Watch has a long way to go before it can be considered the Apple Watch counterpart of Android smartphones.
