Wish you could understand a foreign language? With these headphones, you can

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are prohibitively expensive in India, and it's unclear whether Google's initiatives will be enough to convince consumers.

Queiroz also wrote that the Google Assistant on the new phone can be summoned with a simple squeeze of the phone and will be able to manage more apps, dictate text messages more accurately and complete many tasks with a single command.

It's barely been a day since the announcement of Google's second generation of Pixel smartphones, but mobile accessory brand Tech21 have already come out and announced that their bestselling Evo Check range will be available for owners of the new device.

Apple's W1 chip makes pairing AirPods to an iPhone almost instantaneous, and it has held the connectivity advantage over traditional Bluetooth earphones - until the Pixel Buds arrived. While the Pixel 2 has moved on to an OLED display, the iPhone 8 has not followed the iPhone X to have that technology and instead has stuck to plain LED.

Pixel Buds won't be available to market until November, which could mean that several languages may not yet have full support for the headset.

The Google Pixel 2 has been announced and the "made by Google" smartphone has been improved upon in nearly every way to make Android fans salivating at potentially owning one. Prices for the iPhone X start at $1,000.

Camera of the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL is nearly the same. The platform operates in 40 different languages.

The mini-version of the Google Home speaker is priced at $50, along with a more advanced model at $399, which uses AI to adjust the sound to the ambiance or size of a particular room.

The Mini will cost nearly $50, roughly the small price as Amazon's smaller speaker, the Echo Dot.

The Google Home Max is a rectangular speaker with superior acoustics for playing music, mimicking Apple's HomePod.

Talking to TechCrunch after the event, Google product chief Mario Queiroz tried to justify this move.

Google is selling the Home Max for nearly $400, $50 more than the HomePod.
