SAN FRANCISCO: Google on Tuesday unveiled its new Pixel smartphone with artificial intelligence built in as it directly takes on the iPhone with its own branded, premium-priced handset. It’s the first phone made by Google inside and out.
Pixel smartphone will be available with a five-inch display or a 5.5 inch display, starting at $649 for US customers, at similar prices to the latest iPhone models.
Pre-orders began on Tuesday in Australia, Canada, Germany, Britain, and the United States.
By producing the hardware and Android software, Google is making a more direct challenge to Apple and its tightly controlled ecosystem.
Along with being the first smartphone to ship with Google Assistant, it will come with unlimited storage for photos and videos and be compatible with the company’s new Daydream virtual reality platform.
Pixel also has a special program to make it easy for users to switch operating systems, say from an iPhone to and Android, by simply transfer contacts, content and even iMessages.
