Google just got bigger with yesterday's 'Made By Google' event, where the company introduced an interesting lineup of different devices.
It's not just the Pixel phones that we should be excited about. Here are all the products which Google unveiled that might just dominate the entire tech universe:
1. Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones
These two have been hyped and even leaked all over the internet before the event itself, which is why everyone got even more excited to actually see the phones.
But were these two phones able to live up to everyone's expectations?
With specs such as 12-megapixel rear cameras, 8-megapixel for the front, 4K video support, 7 hours worth of battery power in just 15 minutes of charging, up to 128GB of storage, and 4GB RAM, there's no doubt that these two are heavyweight contenders in the tech scene. In fact, they're great contenders against Apple's iPhone. The Pixel phones will be priced at around $649 or P31,300 and will roll out on October 20.
2. Daydream View
According to Google execs, unlike the first cardboard VR, this new VR head mount is lighter because it's made of cloth. For now, it only works for the Pixel phones, but hopefully, it will be able to cater to other smartphones in the future. The Daydream VR will be avaialbe next month and will cost $79 or around P3,800.
3. Google WiFi
This might be the solution to the weak internet signal we get in our homes and offices. What the Google WiFi router does is spread the wifi signal across every corner of your home or workplace so you can get faster internet. Instead of just one router, Google Wifi maximizes signal strength via two or three routers situated in different locations. Pricing for the Google WiFi starts at $129 or P6,200 for a singular base station, and up to $299 or P14,400 for three, which will be available in November.
4. Google Home
The Amazon Echo finally has a competitor with Google Home. It is a voice-activated speaker that functions as a centralized smarthome control. It can assist you with tasks, such as reminding you of daily activities, playing music around the house, and many more. It will be priced at $129 or P6,200 and will be available for purchase on November 4.
5. Chromecast Ultra
This device boasts a 4K Ultra HD-ready streaming capacity. Though it looks similar to the Chromecast 2, the Ultra can stream UHD content with HDR and Dolby Vision technology. Like the other Google devices, it will also be available in November and will sell for $69 or P3,300.
