- Phones available for pre order on October 13th
Google unveils its first-ever phone Pixel. Pixel bringing together the best of Google’s software and world-class hardware and making the Google experience come to life. Pixel will be available in India in two sizes – 5” or 5.5” and two colors – Quite Black and Very Silver with memory configurations of 32GB and 128GB sizes
The surfaces have been sculpted and edges rounded to make it easy to grip. Google has used 2.5D Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 on the front display and back glass to accent the aerospace grade aluminum body. The glass on the back features Pixel Imprint, the fingerprint sensor, which is placed on the back of the phone where your finger expects it. It even allows you to swipe it to access your notifications. The Pixel is powered by a battery that can charge up your phone for up to seven hours in just 15 minutes.
With the built in Google Assistant in the Pixel, users can have a natural conversation with Google to find answers or get things done on the go. Say “Ok Google” or touch and hold the Home button and the Assistant is ready to help. Ask it for a brief update on your day or to play a video on YouTube. Look up traffic on the way home from work, find photos or when the nearest pharmacy closes. The Assistant can also offer help with what’s on-screen in any app. So if your friend texts you to meet up at a new restaurant, you can just say “navigate there”.
Pixel ships with the newest Android operating system, Android 7.1 Nougat. Pixel Phones will get software and security updates as soon as they’re available, directly from Google. The update process too has been made easier. When a new update is available, it can download and install in the background, so users no longer have to wait for the phone to update.
The camera lets you take stunning photos in low light, bright light or any light. In fact, the Pixel camera was recently rated the best smartphone camera anyone has ever made and the DxOMark Mobile score of 89 is a great example of what’s possible when great hardware meets great software.
The phone also comes with Google Duo and Allo pre-installed so you can video call and text with all your friends, whether they’re on Android or iOS.
The phone is starting at INR 57,000 and it is available for pre-order in India starting October 13th 2016 on www.flipkart.com and at over 1000 plus organized and multi-brand retail stores with leading retail partners including Reliance Digital, Croma and Vijay sales among others. India is among the first six countries where Pixel is being launched.
