Google Soon Opening Pixel 2 Pop-Up Stores In NY & LA


After mocking Apple for removing the headphone jack in its iPhones previous year, Google has gone ahead and removed it on the new Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL smartphones.

Google's newest earpieces, called "Pixel Buds", are reportedly capable of translating the user's speech into any of 40 major foreign languages-even complex languages like Chinese-as he or she speaks.

In terms of other features, the iPhone X has their Face ID scanner for unlocking purposes and the Pixel 2 XL has the Google Assistant that you can access by squeezing the smartphone's sides. This feature will also work in Airplane Mode.

The users located in the passenger seat, or those who in using this function is not needed, you can always disable it in the settings.

He said that the removal of the 3.5mm port for the headphone jack has let Google improve their audio and digital experience for the users because they are looking forward to bezel-less phones in the future.

The Pixel 2 XL is a little less expensive, with its 64 GB model going for $1,159 and the Pixel 2 XL 128GB going for $1,289.


If you're in the United Kingdom, the best place - in my humble opinion - to preorder the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is Carphone Warehouse. The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is listed on Flipkart as "Coming Soon" and it will be worth the wait.

However, "the selling points remain the same" says Wired: "Google's betting that the latest and greatest in Android, an even better Assistant, and the best phone camera Mountain View can muster are enough to take on the best of 2017's smartphone bunch".

The images were apparently taken by a phone prior to launch during pre-launch testing, which means the software running on them might not be 100% finalised. Yes, it's a respectable chip, but it looks positively archaic when you compare it to the iPhone 8 Plus' new A11 Bionic chip with its neural engine.

Google released Pixel Buds, its wireless earbuds to compete with Apple's AirPods. Basically, according to DxOMark, the single camera of the Pixel 2 XL is better than the dual camera of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

Also, you do not get any earphones with your Pixel 2. Following the trend, Google has also ditched the 3.5mm audio-jack and the audio is routed through a headphone adaptor. However, after gauging the Indian market and the public mood, it has made a decision to open its new Mi stores, which are offline channels. You have 64 GB and 128 GB models in both the phones.
