The Google Pixel Phone Has A Smarter Assistant To Help Students With CourseworkBy Emily Marks, UniversityHerald Reporter
The Google Pixel Phone has recently been announced and it looks like it could make Apple users ditch the iPhone 7. The highly-anticipated device will be available later this month.
Inc. reported that the name is based on one of the best laptops in the market today, the Chromebook Pixel. Google Pixel Phone specs are the most high-tech there is, considering that it's the Internet giant itself who developed it. Here's how the smartphone can be of great help to college students.
1. Best camera ever
Let's face it; students often use the camera to take note of what professors write on the board. The Google Pixel Phone reportedly has a 12.3 megapixel camera, which has an F/2.0 aperture and 1.55-micron pixels to capture light. It has the ability to record 4K videos and hi-resolution photos.
2. Quick charge
With the busyness of weekday mornings, there seems to be not enough time to charge our phones always. Well, the Google Pixel Phone allows users to charge the phone for seven hours of use in just 15 minutes.
3. Google Assistant
The Internet giant's upcoming device will be a part of the Google Pixel Phone features. With this, students can set reminders for project deadlines and ask for directions. It is claimed to be smarter since it understands your conversation. According to WSJ, Sundar Pichai, Google's chief executive, believes that computing is evolving from mobile-first to an AI-first world.
4. Unlimited storage
Along with the powerful camera, the phone will have unlimited cloud storage for video and photo. It also syncs with your Google Drive as well as with photos.google.com so that you can check your photos from your laptop or tablet.
5. 3.5mm headphone jack
Google decided to keep the headphone jack when Apple removed it from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. This would save students a lot of time from finding the adapter.
6. Video Chat app
The Google Pixel Phone will have an app called Duo for video calls. This is similar to FaceTime and Skype. It works on both Android and iOS.
