Google Pixel 2 launch event

Google Courageously Removes Headphone Jack in Pixel 2

Google on Wednesday unveiled new phones, smart speakers and other devices infused with artificial intelligence in its bid to claim the high ground against rivals Amazon and Apple. Also, nothing leaves the device unless the user decides to download or send the images, which is a nice bit of security. The new Google Home Mini, among other cool tech gadgets.

Google Rishi Chandra who takes care of Google Home business says that Google Home is aimed at helping people manage their home works easily. Pre-orders for both the devices open up today. These include Pixel smartphone successors, a new VR headset and a new speaker as well. The fingerprint sensor is still on the back of the device, placed where your pointer finger naturally rests. The case provides four charges over 24 hours before it has to be plugged in. However, this isn't a Pixel 2 only feature-it will preview on the Pixel first and will slowly find its way onto third-party smartphones. This feature for now is only available in HTC U11. Sure, it's what's inside that counts, and the two smartphones feature small changes like front-facing speakers, but that doesn't mean they needs to look almost identical to last year's model. Like the Pixel 2, this will also come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. Towards the front, the smartphone has a large display with curved glass on top and thin bezels towards the edges. The handset will be more powerful than the Pixel 2 but will share a similar design.

The sound can also be controlled by tapping on the speaker. There might be changes made on the inside. Moreover, Google repeatedly focused on Google Home Mini being a means of turning your standard home into a "smart" home. The device aims to compete with the Amazon Echo Dot.

According to one recent report, Google will likely bring more models of the of the newly released QuietComfort 35 II wireless headphones, which offers Google's Assistant technology. If Google wants to own your home in an unassuming way, then the Google Home Mini is the flawless Trojan Horse.
