Meet the Google Pixel, and you might forget the iPhone.

Google today announced it’s very first smartphone, and It’s called “Pixel”. Wait, what? Yeah you read that right. Unlike previous attempts with the Nexus and Motorola, the pixel is #madebygoogle, and a high-end competitor at that. Not unlike the iPhone and Galaxy s-series.  The Pixel comes in two models: The 5 inch Pixel, and the 5.5 inch Pixel X, and three colors: Quite black, really blue, and very silver.

From products, like the OnHub router and the Chromecast, it’s safe to say googles isn’t shy about hardware anymore. Let’s get to the details.

the Highest rated camera ever

Under the hood, Both phones feature a 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, 32GB base internal storage, an 8MP front facing camera, and a 12.3 MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture (touted to be he Highest rated camera ever.). What's more, is the unlimited storage for photos and videos to google drive, which comes in handy when shooting 4k videos.

The new Pixel phones come with built-in superfast charging capability, Google claims the battery lasts all day, and the device can run for 7 hours under a 15minute charge. The phones aren't as cheap as we hoped. If you've ever owned a nexus, this might come rather surprising as google ditches the affordable prices for the now-common $649 base price.

Perhaps on of the most important features on the phone is google's new assistant, simple called "Google assistant". with it, you can kick off a conversation which feels a lot like talking to Siri or Cortana. the assistant also has the ability to respond to follow-up conversations and dig into your preferences and other services such as Uber. 

And hey, there was also a really cool silicon valley intro, for Silicon Valley lovers at the #madebygoogle event. Here you go!
