Pixel 2 Specs

Google Lens has an accuracy rate of 95%. It also supports augmented reality (AR) and also features AR stickers.

Pixel 2 has a 12-megapixel camera with an exposure level of f1.8 and OIS. The Pixel 2 camera has got an unprecedented DXO score of 98! It also includes ‘Motion Photos’to capture moments before a shot.

The camera unit on the Google Pixel 2 sports a ‘dual-pixel sensor’, which supposedly divides every pixel into two — granting the same ‘bokeh’ effect as dual-lens camera devices like the iPhone or OnePlus 5. Pixel 2 users will get unlimited cloud storage for high-resolution photos and videos.

Coming to design, the rear panel of the both the second-generation Pixel devices have been redesigned. The new design doesn’t encase the Pixel’s fingerprint sensor among the glass based-back panel. But the camera bump on the new Pixel 2 is larger than before.

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are will retail in India at a starting price of Rs 61,000 and Rs 73,000, respectively.
