“We’ve packed both phones with a new, 50-megapixel main camera, with 21 per cent more light sensitivity than Pixel 7,” said the company.
Pixel 8 has an updated ultra-wide camera with autofocus that enables Macro Focus.
The bigger ultrawide lens delivers even better Macro Focus, the telephoto lens captures 56 per cent more light than Pixel 7 Pro and takes 10x photos at optical quality, and the front-facing camera now has autofocus for the best selfies on a Pixel phone.
One can also get high-resolution 50MP images from across the zoom range, in both JPEG and RAW.
Magic Editor in Google Photos uses generative AI to help you reposition and resize your subjects to create a perfect photo of the moment you were trying to capture.
Audio Magic Eraser feature lets you easily reduce distracting sounds in your video, like howling winds or noisy crowds.
This first-of-its-kind computational audio capability uses advanced machine learning models to sort sounds into distinct layers so you can control their levels.
“Pixel Watch 2 comes with upgraded performance, all-day battery life (with always-on display), new safety features and sensors for deeper health insights — including our most accurate heart rate tracking on any tracker or smartwatch2 — to give you a much better pulse on your day,” said Google.
Pixel Watch 2 is made from 100 per cent recycled aluminum which makes it 10 per cent lighter than Pixel Watch3.
Together with the low-power co-processor, the new CPU gives the watch 24 hours of battery life, even with always-on display, said the company.
