Google's new earbuds can translate 40 languages in real time

Google Clips camera

The Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL both come with LG's P-OLED displays with a resolution of 1920×1080 and 2880×1440 respectively.

Google demoed the technology in action on Wednesday, and the earbuds quickly translated a conversation between English and Swedish-to much applause from the audience. However, it appears that the feature will be limited to just Google Pixel smartphones, according to an IE report.

Google also announced a new Pixelbook laptop, calling it a "high performance" computer powered by its Chrome operating system and designed as a rival to Microsoft (Euronext: MSF.NX - news) 's Surface and Apple's iPad Pro. Mind you, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones do not come with a 3.5mm audio jack port, hence the need for wireless earbuds similar to that of Apple's.

Pixel 2 is available in two different sizes, five-inch and six-inch, and comes in black, white, blue, and black and white colour options.

Banking on its awesome camera, Google last year sold around 2.1 million Pixel devices and this year too, Google has taken the right steps in providing a wonderful camera. With a price tag of Dollars 159 (ISK 16,900/EUR 135), this tiny device with the power to revolutionize communication comes relatively cheap. Additionally, Google is giving free Home Mini speaker to those who pre-order Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL. The wearer taps the right earbud and says something like, "Help me speak Spanish", and Google gets to work. According to the company, consumers in India generally prefer to purchase premium, high-end smartphones after having experienced them in-person, something that they failed to capitalize on previous year. "Daydream now has more than 250 titles, so you'll never run out of things to do", said Google's vice-president of virtual and augmented reality, Clay Bavor. Both are powered by Google's smart assistant.

Tech21's Evo Check cases will be available for the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL through Telstra stores and for an RRP of $49.95.
