The new Pixel 4, headphones and a laptop: everything Google presented at its last event

During the «Made by Google 2019» event, the new Pixel 4 was finally officially announced, after months and months of leaks, as well as new versions of Google Wifi and Google Home Mini, which are now part of the product family Nest of the company. Google also revealed the Pixelbook Go, although they did not mention almost details, beyond the aesthetic choices they have made for the design of the new Chromebook. Its new most attractive product could be the Pixel Buds 2 headphones, although we will have to wait until 2020 to test them in person.

Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL

To anyone’s surprise, the Pixel 4 is already here, and in addition to having an additional 16 Megapixel telephoto camera on the back (to complement its primary 12 Megapixel camera), the smartphone finally abandons the use of a notch in its screen, something that still affects the smartphones of companies like Apple. Even so, the Pixel 4 does not fail to include a biometric facial recognition system. Pixel 4’s camera skills have also been improved thanks to its new image processing capabilities through machine learning, so you can use it for star photography.

However, the biggest update could be the new gesture recognition capability of the phone, called Motion Sense, which allows users to interact with the Pixel 4 without touching it, thanks to the radar technology on which Google has been working for years. The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are priced starting at $ 800 and $ 900 respectively, and for the first time they will be available in all US operators.

Google Nest Wifi

If you have not yet switched to a modular Wi-Fi solution, the new Google Nest Wifi, an updated and renowned version of the company’s Google Wifi hardware, is an even more attractive alternative. The Google Nest router, which connects to your internet modem, can now be combined with a series of nodes called Google Nest Wifi Points that extend uniform and reliable Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home. The nodes also function as Google Nest Mini speakers, which facilitates the configuration of a network of smart assistants and a sound solution for the entire home. When available on last November 4, Google Nest Wifi was priced at $ 269 for a router package and a node, or $ 349 for a package a router and two nodes.

Google Nest Mini

Two years after its debut, the Google Home Mini has been renamed as Google Nest Mini and retains everything that made it great. It still has the size and shape of a hockey puck, but now it has a third microphone to improve voice capture in noisy environments, double bass performance, a new sky blue version and a mounting hole in wall at the bottom, so you can hang it as a work of art in your home. Its price was only $ 49 when it reached stores on October 22.

Google Pixel Buds 2

The Google Pixel Buds arrived a year after Apple’s AirPods radically changed the design of the wireless headphones, and yet still included a clamp cable, a mediocre charging case and regular audio quality, which resulted in a disappointing product. Now, Google has revealed a new version, the Pixel Buds 2, which finally completely eliminates the wires in a design that looks like it could easily disappear in your ear (and that’s a good thing). They have five hours of battery life, or 24 hours in total when combined with a wireless charging case, as well as quick access to Google Assistant, for interesting features such as real-time translation. They will sell for $ 180, but will not be available until spring 2020.

Google Pixelbook Go

With a price that starts at $ 650, which means it costs $ 350 less than the Pixelbook, Google’s new Pixelbook Go, with its 13 millimeters thick and 910 grams in weight, could be an affordable and practical solution for those who are looking for a lightweight travel laptop and do not mind limiting themselves to Chrome OS. Powered by a range of Intel processors, the Pixelbook Go features a new super quiet keyboard called «Hush Keys», a striated bottom that makes it easier to grab and grab. Under the hood also includes up to 16 GB of RAM and 256 GB of integrated SSD storage.
