Google revealed its Pixel Buds alongside the the Pixel 2 and larger Pixel 2 XL smartphones at a special event on October 4. In September, it was announced that the iPhone 8 has the best smartphone camera in the world.
Anyway, allow us to vent about the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack and this after making fun of Apple a year ago!
Apart from the folks at Google, no one knows the exact amount of first-gen Pixel phones sold. The phone’s software then combines the two images into a single photo that is superior to what just one lens can produce. The Google Pixel 2 is slated to launch in India on November 1 whereas the Pixel 2 XLwill be available from November 15. Anyway, DxOMark has found that the Pixel 2 XL has a wonderful camera. That makes sense for a device that tops our scoring charts -up from the 94 of the Apple iPhone 8 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to a record-setting 98. The other party’s reply (presumably in Japanese because otherwise what exactly are you playing at?) will then play into your ear through the Pixel Buds.
For those who would prefer to have the translator in your ear, not shouting aloud, Bragi’s truly wireless Dash Pro earbuds have been able to perform the same trick since May, again between 40 languages, using the iTranslate app on an iPhone.
All these hardware and software capabilities were reflected in Google last year’s launch of Pixel smartphone.
The Galaxy S8 has a great camera, too – but in our own vote, the Pixel XL came out ahead in categories such as landscape shots, HDR shooting, and low-light shots with flash enabled. DxOMark website is used to provide ratings to the device cameras. Inevitably, Google’s competitors will attempt to apply the same techniques to their phones.
Orrin went on to list off 12 available USB-C or Bluetooth headphones that are compatible with the Pixel 2, as well as seven mode that are described as “coming soon”. Further, whoever has taken the images must be familiar with the techniques of photography.
The application of AI to consumer tech isn’t just happening with cameras, though.
Google Home is one of the most popular speakers on the market offers quite a few Google Home skills. Pressing on the right earbud activates the feature when the user says “Help me speak (insert foreign language)”.
According to Android Police, which has reported about the issue, this will feature will be automatically turned on when a user is driving.
