Google Takes the Wraps Off Pixel 4 Smartphone, Unveils New Wireless Earbuds, Speaker

1:42PM ET 10/15/2019 MT Newswires
Alphabet's Google (GOOG) on Tuesday introduced the latest versions of its Pixel smartphone, featuring camera updates, while the tech behemoth also unveiled new wireless earbuds and a speaker that connects to its artificial intelligence-powered system.

Pixel 4 "packs new technology into a new design," Google said on a blog on its website, with shipments set to start globally on Oct. 24. The Pixel 4 costs $799, and Pixel 4 XL is listed at $899. With those price tags, the devices come with what Google calls its largest camera upgrade. The device now has two cameras, including a telephoto lens, to produce sharper image quality.

The phone's motion sense feature detects movement, enabling a user to wave their hand to skip songs and make other commands without touching the phone. The company also boasted of "breakthrough speech processing" for Google Assistant, the company's AI-based digital helper. The faster processing will allow Pixel 4 to quickly respond to a range of voice requests by the user, such as opening photographs, the company said.

The company said that for the first time it will sell Pixel through all major mobile carriers in the US, including AT&T (T), Sprint (S) and Verizon (VZ).

Google also unveiled Pixel Buds, wireless earbuds that can connect to Google Assistant and will cost $179 in the US next year. The round devices tuck into the ears and can automatically adjust the volume. Each earbud has two microphones and offers five hours of listening time on a charge. The devices will come in four colors and customers will be notified when they go on sale, the company said.

Meanwhile, the Nest Mini speaker is "smarter and faster than the original Mini," as it has a dedicated machine learning chip that, in the US, will learn and process most of a user's commands. The Nest Mini will sell for $49, with pre-orders being accepted on Google Store. The speakers will also be sold at retailers including Best Buy (BBY) and Target (TGT) starting Oct. 22.
