Since, there is not going to be any headphones in the box of the new Pixel 2 phones, the headphone deal will be quite useful for the consumers. As explained in our previous post, the new music-identification feature uses an offline repertoire of "tens of thousands" of songs to identify tracks and display them on the lock screen of your Pixel 2 device. As of now, the Pixel Visual Core chip isn't yet enabled inside the Google Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL.

The Pixel 2 64 GB storage variant is priced at ₹61,000 with the 128 GB variant coming at ₹70,000. This includes 1 year of unlimited voice, data (750GB), SMS, and Jio applications worth Rs. 9,999 at no cost, Rs. 5,000 additional exchange bonus at Reliance Digital stores. Apart from this Rs. 8,000 cashback on EMI transactions done with HDFC Bank credit cards is also available.

The 50 per cent buyback guarantee should be an interesting offer for Pixel and Pixel XL owners looking to upgrade to the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL, it is still unclear, however, whether the buyback refers to older Pixel models. The XL has the larger, QuadHD display, as well as the taller 18:9 size ratio, while the Pixel 2 has the HD, 16:9 display.

Pixel 2 comes in just black, clearly white and kinda blue colours while Pixel 2 XL has just black and black and white variants. It comes with a 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5. There's 4GB of RAM, 64/128GB internal storage which is not expandable, Adreno 540 GPU, and a generous 3520 mAh non-removable battery (on the bigger Pixel 2 XL).

In the camera department, the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL come with a dual pixel sensor, HDR+, and a portrait mode. Apps typically do not use NNAPI directly; instead, NNAPI is meant to be called by machine learning libraries, frameworks, and tools that let developers train their models and deploy them on Android devices. On the front, the devices will sport a 8MP secondary camera with f/2.4 aperture.

Assuming these Google Pixel 3 rumors are true, the company would keep some of the best features for the most expensive Pixel 3 version similar to what Apple did with the iPhone X. Google's future product strategy helps explain why it launched the Pixel Buds earlier this month. Connectivity options on the devices include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C port, GPS, Glonass, and NFC.
