Google Pixel, Pixel XL launch: Google on Tuesday pulled up the curtains on its Pixel, Pixel XL launch in San Francisco. After the much hyped Apple event last month, it was Google's turn to launch its brand new smartphones Pixel and Pixel XL in what turned out to be an extravagant affair. Google Pixel camera is 12 MP rear with 1.5 micron pixel size. Features like Smartburst where Google intelligence chooses the best pic from a series of shoots. HDR+ mode for better image quality, camera uses it by default. Zero shutter lag, says Google. Google has an annual ritual of announcing its flagship smartphones, yet this year appears to be distinct. Google in an enigmatic new advertisement had shown a box, devoid of context which metamorphosised into a rectangular shape symbolising a smartphone alongside the Google logo and 'Oct 4' written.
