The community manager has a few helpful tips in mind for those that will be purchasing the Pixel 2 or its larger brother down the road, but you might not find them fulfilling your goal all that much. Yet even with all that RAM, the Pixel 2 XL can't compete in the processing department against the iPhone 8 Plus.

For this reason, Google Assistant took center stage at the event, boasting several updates that make the company's AI-infused voice assistant more useful; the Assistant is also being integrated into some new hardware. This includes the always-on ambient display, Google HDR+, continuous music detection on the lock screen, Google Lens (for now) and augmented reality stickers.

That said, for Galaxy users who later realize 64 GB isn't enough for them, that storage can be expanded by up to an extra 256 GB with a MicroSD card.

At the opposite end of the Mini is the Google Home Max, which is a supersized version, featuring two 4.5 inch woofers alongside tweeters.

Competition is so stiff that when you think a smartphone with excellent camera features would be hard to beat for a while, a new device overtakes in just a matter of weeks. Further, there are a couple of side-by-side comparisons of Google's optical image stabilization and electronic image stabilization technologies (though don't forget that you can take advantage of the electronic video stabilization on your own videos right now using Google Photos).

Both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL smartphones are available in two storage variants of 64GB/128GB; there is no microSD card slot so the storage is not expandable. All of this information will be used to direct the sound in the most appropriate way around the room.

From new smart speakers to smart earbuds and everything in between, here's what else Google had to reveal.

So, if you are thinking of buying a Pixel 2 here's everything you need to know.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are launched with the e-SIM feature but Indian variants will be supporting single nano-SIM.

But don't go by the appearances. Note the faint "G" design in each bud.

Now Google Pixel 2 owners face a similarly frustrating future, but Google seems to be low on sympathy.

Pixel Buds can translate 40 languages. Unsurprisingly, the explanation follows along similar lines to Apple's decision to drop the venerable headphone jack on the iPhone 7 past year. Google hand frees are famous due to their ability to translate real time languages that helps making friends easier globally.
