The Don't Be Evil company is becoming more and more like Apple. In the constant attempt to produce more and more hardware of our own design, today we find interesting bets in all branches of the consumer electronics market.
This is how Google today presented the Pixelbook, Pixel 2 and some other device with the intention of monopolizing the maximum possible market and create a consistent base of users who don't trust Google solely for its free software. Let's get to know a little more closely what Google has to offer us. ,
We start with the laptop or rather convertible that Google has presented. In fact, we are rather facing a high-end convertible that wants to move away a little from what the classic PC can offer us. So much so that we find ourselves before a screen of 12,9 inches with 360 swivel capabilityº, it is obvious that before this feature we are going to find a touch panel. In short, we are going to choose if we want a PC or a tablet. For this, it will be accompanied by a stylus whose performance is yet to be seen, but which will surely measure up.
The Samsung convertible comes with some more than interesting characteristics, we will choose between the Intel i5 or i7 processors, perhaps too much power and consumption for the tablet alternative, although we imagine that they will have this plot well thought out. Necessary at least to move the resolution QuadHD that offers its panel.
The capacity of the RAM memory is unified in 16 GB while in the storage we will oscillate between 128 and 512 GB of SSD disk depending on our needs and economic capacities. In terms of materials, aluminum and a nod to minimalism prevail. The laptop will start from € 1.199 in Spain, with no confirmed launch date, to which should be added no less than € 90 for the smart pencil. In terms of autonomy, Google promises 10 hours of use, as well as two USB-C ports and an operating system based on Chrome OS.
Google Pixel 2 to conquer the market
How could it be otherwise, Google joins the trend of FullVision screens in an unmistakable memory of the front that we have in the LG G6. In fact, we might think that the South Korean firm has had something to do with manufacturing. In its standard version it will be accompanied by a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and 4 GB of RAM, with identical specifications in the Pixel XL 2 version.
They do not look alike on screen, the normal version offers a screen OLED with FullHD resolution while the XL version goes up to a QHD panel. The difference in size ranges from 5 inches for the smallest to 6 inches for the largest. Both with double rear camera with OIS system who has obtained a score of 98 on DxOMark, the best on the market so far. The battery is also a differentiated element, between 2.700 mAh and 3.500 mAh both units dance. All with. Bluetooth 5.0, fingerprint reader, water resistance, connection USB-C, eSIM and stereo speakers.
Still unconfirmed prices, will reach € 1.000 of its competitors without a doubt, planned for the next few months.
Home Mini is your assistant
What's new from Google: Pixelbook, Pixel 2 and moreand with a quality speaker capable of offering 360 ° sound. It remains to be seen how it performs in real environments, but at that price it will be irresistible with its three colors, black, white and red. Undoubtedly a small speaker that on the other hand will have a lot to prove if it wants to make it clear that it can become an alternative to what Samsung and Apple offer us with their products of similar depth. What is clear is that at € 50 it will become the preferred alternative for many of them, the rest will remain to be seen and we will tell you about it. We do not forget the Pixel Earbuds, a wireless headset with instant translation and Google Assistant.
