Google posts first unedited Pixel 2 camera photos and they look stunning

Going into Wednesday's event, Google, a division of Alphabet Inc. "Now there are more phones on the market".

The Pixel debuted a year ago, with analysts estimating sales of more than 2 million, pushing Google to record amounts of non-advertising revenue.

This is because Google has not revealed exactly how many units of the previous Pixel devices it had revealed last time around, although estimates range at around 2 million devices sold.

What consumers got, however, was a multitude of products created to take the fight to Amazon.com, Inc. It's really disappointing Google has stuck with a single-lens system in the rear.

Since Google launched the second generation of its Pixel phones, both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have been the talk of the town. We do love the addition of OIS and Dual Pixel AF and the image quality looks great.

The phones are priced at $649 and $849 to start, each $50 cheaper than the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, respectively.

Nonetheless, to make the transition a smoother one, Google has included a dongle in the box so that you can continue to use your preferred old-school headphones. Google is also taking the same approach with its Home Max speaker, which is launching in the United States in December and elsewhere next year. It can also be placed horizontally or vertically to fit the user's space. Both cameras are able to capture 4K resolution videos.

At $249, Google Clips is aimed squarely at potential GoPro customers who might flinch at the $399 price tag, as well as more casual users. Like AirPods, you just put the Pixel Buds back in their pocket-sized case to charge. Google Translate will then offer up a somewhat coherent translation of whatever it hears "in real-time" - or at least, fast enough to hold a conversation, the website states. "There are also routines coming to Pixel for the morning, your commute, when you get home, etc". A similar feature that Google launched in partnership with Bose on the Bose QC35 II headphones. And while I understand Google's desire to maximize the size of the screen by getting it as close as possible to the edges of the device, that shouldn't be as the expense of another feature most of us use on a regular basis. They also cost quite same with the list price of $159.

The key takeaway from this product release is that while Google is upping its game in the hardware department, every product it unveiled has the AI-based Google Assistant at its core.

The application of AI to consumer tech isn't just happening with cameras, though.

When investing geniuses David and Tom Gardner have a stock tip, it can pay to listen. The problem is not everyone is obsessed with a bezel-less future.
