Pixel is the first phone with the new Google Assistant built in. When you touch and hold the home button or say the “hot word,” the Assistant “jumps into action.
It has a 12.3-megapixel resolution with large 1.55-micron pixels and an f/2.0 aperture.
Endless Cloud Storage
Google will allow free unlimited storage for full-resolution images and videos shot with the Pixel. That’s much like the standard Google Photos backup ability, but takes off the size limit and compression, even on 4K video shot with the new phone.
Connectivity And Communications
Pixel users will be getting the latest Android updates directly from Google as soon as they become available.
This is one of the biggest pain points with Android, and Google is stressing its lead in this category.
The company has also paid close attention to the Pixel’s endurance on the move, adding fast charging that gets you up to 7 hours of power in 15 minutes of charging.
Google has also built in 24-hour live phone support right into the Pixel’s software, so that a tech support operator can see exactly what’s on your screen and thus help you better. And yes, the Pixel comes with Google Duo preinstalled, if you’ve been hankering for the company’s video chat app.
Mobile Virtual Reality
The Pixel is the first Daydream-compatible phone. The Daydream View comes bundled with a tiny motion controller that is so precise, claims Google, that you can even draw with it. When you’re done using it, the controller tucks inside the Daydream View itself for safe storage.
Specifically, the INR 57,000 price tag is for the 32GB Pixel variant, with the 128GB model costing INR 66,000 (around $990). The larger Pixel XL, on the other hand, will set you back INR 67,000 (around $1,005) and INR 76,000 (around $1,140) for the 32GB and 128GB models, respectively.
