Wednesday in CE: Hot Takes From Google Keynote, Samsung Unveils Mixed Reality
During Google's keynote today, the tech giant teased some of their upcoming products, such as Chromebook refresh coming with a significant $999 price tag, a $49 Google Home Mini and the larger Google Home Max speakers (in direct competition to Amazon's Echo Dot and Apple's Homepod), and of course, the highly anticipated Pixel 2.
The updated premium smartphone will include new features such as water resistance, a so-called "dual-pixel" camera that -despite being only one lens - allows the phone to capture two images at a slightly different angle. The phone uses "left and right pixels" to create an artificial bokeh, and offers the same portrait mode on the front-facing camera.
It's Google's brave take on all dual cameras saturating the market.
