Google announces Pixel 4, Nest Mini, Pixelbook Go & more

Google Officially Announces the Pixel 4 & 4XL With Fastest Face Unlock in the Industry

The biggest surprise of Google's Pixel event is a transcription app. Here's how it works

Google has revealed that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL along with the latest Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones will be supported by Stadia. But the most important thing the company may have done is give them more ways to do the actual buying. One of the advantages of earlier Google Pixel smartphones was the ability to back-up your entire photo library without any compression at all to Google Photos.

One of the most noticeable differences (aside from ditching the ugly top notch) is the rear camera setup.

"Your phone can also be unlocked by someone else if it's held up to your face, even if your eyes are closed", a Google support page reads. Making these phones almost Pixel flawless.

Google Pixel 4 includes a different design change in the Pixel 3 string chiefly because of its camera module.

Russian Federation signals its new power in Syria; Pence seeking cease-fire from Turkey
At least 190,000 people have fled their homes in northern Syria , according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM). Earlier Wednesday, Erdogan said that the only option for Kurdish militants in Syria was to give up the battle and retreat.

Google can't keep secrets, so all hail the Pixelbook Go
The only real difference on the exterior is going to be that screw cutout you can see, so that you can hang the device on a wall. Just as with the Home Mini, the Nest Mini works with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac with dual-band support (2.4 or 5.0GHz).

Hong Kong leader aims to ease the housing crunch inflaming protests
She wasn't, however, expected to yield to key demands of protesters who've been demonstrating since June. She barely managed a few words before pro-democracy lawmakers forced her to stop talking.

The new Pixel also brings Google's biggest camera update yet, with two camera lenses on both the 4 and 4XL - a 12.2-megapixel f/1.7 main lens and 16-megapixel f/2.4 telephoto lens- as well as new Super Res Zoom software and a 8-megapixel selfie camera.

In other news, BBC News found that Google's Pixel 4 Face Unlock system still allows access into the phone if the eyes are closed, which could pose as a major security risk because it does not check if the user is alert, writes the news outlet.

Google still needs to do a much better job in marketing and merchandising at retail to actually make the sale.

This is definitely going to improve the average user experience with Google Assistant, although whether or not the feature will be able to compete with Siri remains to be seen. The setup is similar to Apple's but that Soli chip really makes the Pixel 4 face unlock up and running in a jiffy - which is why it's faster. "The Pixel 4 provides a lot of functionality for the price, but Google is sticking with a premium pricing strategy that has kept previous Pixel sales relatively low", Greengart said. Pixel 4 can be bought at $799, the same cost Pixel 3 started at. (Apple and Samsung's latest phones have a 60Hz display.) Google is also trying something called Motion Sense, which it claims is a built-in radar that allows the phone to sense when its owner is nearby. Looking at Swappa, Pixel 3 XL devices are selling for as little as $275.
