Here’s Everything Google Announced Today

It seems like only yesterday that Google was just a software company. Search and web apps, Android and Chrome. The industry giant’s first moves into hardware were small; it first worked with partners like Samsung and LG to build phones, tablets, and Chromebooks, then timidly branched out into creating its own designs. Well, Google isn’t timid about hardware any longer. In a 100-minute event on Tuesday, the company unveiled an entire line of products made not by hardware partners, but by Google’s own robust in-house product teams. And connecting all of the pieces together, of course, is Google’s speech-controlled, AI-powered Assistant. Here’s everything the company unveiled.

Pixel and Pixel XL Phones

With aluminum frames, glass backs, and no camera protrusions, Google’s first Pixel-branded phones are pretty slick. What’s more important is what’s on the inside: An unprecedented amount of AI, a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, Daydream-ready VR status, and one hell of a smartphone camera (more on that next). The 5-inch Pixel and 5.5-inch Pixel XL are available for preorder today at $649 and up in the US. You can buy them straight from Google, or you can walk into a Verizon store and pick one up too.
