Google today announced the launch of Pixel, the first-ever phone made by Google. The Pixel is the first phone with the Google Assistant built right in, bringing together the best of Google’s software and world-class hardware and making the Google experience come to life.
Pixel will be available for pre-order in India starting October 13th 2016 on Flipkart and at over 1000 plus organized and multi-brand retail stores with leading retail partners including Reliance Digital, Croma and Vijay sales among others. India is among the first six countries where Pixel is being launched.
Pixel will be available in India in two sizes – 5” or 5.5” and two colours – Quite Black and Very Silver with memory configurations of 32GB and 128GB sizes. Pixel is priced at 57,000 INR for 32 GB and 66,000 INR for 128GB; whereas, Pixel XL is priced at 67,000 INR for 32 GB and 76,000 INR for 128 GB version.
With the built in Google Assistant in the Pixel, users can have a natural conversation with Google to find answers or get things done on the go. Say “Ok Google” or touch and hold the Home button and the Assistant is ready to help.
Pixel ships with the newest Android operating system, Android 7.1 Nougat. Pixel Phones will get software and security updates as soon as they’re available, directly from Google. The update process too has been made easier. When a new update is available, it can download and install in the background, so users no longer have to wait for the phone to update.
Pixel’s camera lets you take stunning photos in low light, bright light or any light. In fact, the Pixel camera was recently rated the best smartphone camera anyone has ever made and the DxOMark Mobile score of 89 is a great example of what’s possible when great hardware meets great software.
