Did Google show something interesting in their presentation?

Samsung showed the Note 9 in August, Apple showed the new iPhone Xs, Xs Max and Xr in September. Now it's Google's turn. The company held a presentation on a beautiful autumn New York morning on October 9th. The event was called Made by Google, or "Made by Google".

Against the backdrop of the show from Samsung and Apple, the Google event looked more like a house party. Several journalists, a small room, no special effects and a fairly calm presentation of the material. Someone will say that he yawned from boredom so much that he almost dislocated his jaw. And, perhaps, he will be right.

Google first talked about how hard it is working to make results faster, better voice recognition, and easier user life.

We demonstrated such tricks as, for example, hints when writing emails in Gmail, when you just wrote “adre”, Google guesses that this is an address, and offers to add the street, house, and so on yourself. We emphasized once again that many users have become accustomed to communicating with a voice assistant, and what a good thing Google Duplex is, which can book tables in restaurants.

Google is also great at searching photos and knows where the dog's eyes, nose and ears are:

And all this is possible because the company works at the intersection of AI - Software - Hardware, that is, "Artificial Intelligence - Software - Hardware".

Google Home Hub

The first product we talked about was the Google Home Hub. It can be described as a tablet on a stand. This is a direct competitor to Alexa Show. The Home Hub has a 7-inch touch screen. However, Google believes that most of the interaction with the device will be through voice commands. By the way, the device does not have a webcam. This was explained by the fact that users can now not be afraid and put the gadget even in the bedroom. Hackers will not be able to see anything, only hear.

In rest mode, the Home Hub shows the calendar, time, weather. And of course it can stream photos from Google Photos. The brightness of the display depends on the ambient light. And at night, it turns off the screen altogether.

Did Google show something interesting in their presentation?

Interaction with the device occurs through voice commands. And this is the Hub for a smart home, not a tablet. For example, there is no browser. That is, you can ask to find something - text, music, or a YouTube video, or some kind of series. But digging into Facebook on your own will not work. But on the main screen, you can see which smart bulbs, thermometers, locks, video eyes and other compatible devices are working. Relatively speaking, there is no need to remember whether you turned off the light in the toilet or not. Everything is visible on the screen.

In addition to smart home functions, the device supports Google Assistant functionality, that is, setting alarms, reminders, and more.

It's interesting, by the way, that Google doesn't use the term smart home, but thoughtful home. That is, not smart, but reasonable, thoughtful. Thus, the manufacturer wants to emphasize that this is not just a report of the current status, but interactive interaction and guessing the user's needs.

Available for pre-order today for $149 in the English speaking world. They didn't say anything about Russia.

Google Pixel Slate

I think Google means slate to mean "sheet, board". For example, blank slate - "blank sheet". I prefer the primary meaning of the word slate - "slate". So, Google has introduced a brand new Google Pixel Slate, or "Google Dot Slate".

Did Google show something interesting in their presentation? Did Google show that something interesting in your presentation? Did Google show that something interesting in your presentation? Did Google show that something interesting in your presentation?

The event is quite significant, since this is the company's first own tablet in three years. And this is not an Android tablet, but a real Chrome OS tablet computer. It can have 4/8 or 16 GB of RAM. The screen has a resolution of 2000 by 3000 pixels.

And here are more detailed technical specifications:

  • Screen: 12.3 inches, 3000 x 2000 dots, LTPS LCD, Gorilla Glass 5
  • Processor: Intel Core m3, i5, i7, Celeron (8th generation)
  • Memory: 4/8/16 GB / 32/64/128/256 GB
  • Battery: up to 10 hours, fast charging available

  • Fingerprint scanner built into the power button
  • Two audio speakers, two microphones
  • Stylus
  • Size: 7.0mm x 290.85mm x 202.04mm
  • Price: $599 to $1,699

The tablet is a direct competitor to the iPad Pro and Surface Pro. The device supports a stylus, it has a kind of Molecular Display, "Molecular Display". The trick of the display is that it is more energy efficient than traditional LCDs.

You can buy a Pixelbook Pen for $99 and you can buy a keyboard that attaches to a special connector on the tablet case. The price of the keyboard is $199. The keyboard has beautiful round buttons.

Please note that Intel managed to put their own processor in the tablet, which is somewhat strange. For why do you need Chrome OS on i7? If you know, then tell me in the comments. And it's also strange why Bluetooth version 4.2, and not 5.0.

The disadvantages of the tablet include the lack of a memory card slot and the lack of a headphone jack.

Mobile-Review.com released a first look at Google phones back in August. The text is available at the link:

Did Google show something interesting in their presentation?

And the main question was: will it be the same apparatus or a different one? The device is the same. But, as I understand it, the software is better. It seems that Google did a good job on the photo component. At the presentation, a lot of attention was paid to how great the new Pixels are on their own and how great they look against the backdrop of the iPhone XS.

Did Google show something interesting in their presentation?

Main features of the camera:

Group selfies. The front camera has two photomodules. One is simple, the other is wide-angle. The second module allows you to increase the shooting area so that everyone fits into the frame.

Did Google show something interesting in their presentation?

Portrait mode - after shooting, you can independently determine the degree of blurring of photos.

Multi-frame shooting - a series of shots is taken, after which the best details are selected from each photo and combined into one.

Night shooting - AI works here, which improves photos.

In addition to the smartphone, you can buy a stand for $79. The phone stands on it almost vertically and is charging. And since it has an Always-On screen, it also broadcasts pictures, time, adjusts the screen brightness to the ambient light.

Did Google show something interesting in their presentation?

One of the interesting features that I liked is the Call Screen. Artificial intelligence detects that some annoying bank representative is calling you to offer a loan, and automatically answers: “Remove the number from the list.” Great feature.

Conclusion

In terms of smart home, Google competes with Amazon. In tablets, he competes with Apple and Microsoft, and in phones, he apparently competes with the iPhone. Absolutely all the products presented at the presentation are not for Russia. You can only use a phone with one SIM card. If you have an opinion, you can write it in the comments. Thank you.

Google wants to wish success. Keeping an eye on smartphones is just as good as looking after user data. And invite someone to make the events more interesting to watch.

The tablet is a direct competitor to the iPad Pro and Surface Pro. The device supports a stylus, it has a kind of Molecular Display, "Molecular Display". The trick of the display is that it is more energy efficient than traditional LCDs.

You can buy a Pixelbook Pen for $99 and you can buy a keyboard that attaches to a special connector on the tablet case. The price of the keyboard is $199. The keyboard has beautiful round buttons.

Please note that Intel managed to put their own processor in the tablet, which is somewhat strange. For why do you need Chrome OS on i7? If you know, then tell me in the comments. And it's also strange why Bluetooth version 4.2, and not 5.0.

The disadvantages of the tablet include the lack of a memory card slot and the lack of a headphone jack.

  • Mobile-Review.com released a first look at Google phones back in August. The text is available at the link:

    And the main question was: will it be the same apparatus or a different one? The device is the same. But, as I understand it, the software is better. It seems that Google did a good job on the photo component. At the presentation, a lot of attention was paid to how great the new Pixels are on their own and how great they look against the backdrop of the iPhone XS.

    Main features of the camera:

    Group selfies. The front camera has two photomodules. One is simple, the other is wide-angle. The second module allows you to increase the shooting area so that everyone fits into the frame.

    Portrait mode - after shooting, you can independently determine the degree of blurring of photos.

    Multi-frame shooting - a series of shots is taken, after which the best details are selected from each photo and combined into one.

    Night shooting - AI works here, which improves photos.

    In addition to the smartphone, you can buy a stand for $79. The phone stands on it almost vertically and is charging. And since it has an Always-On screen, it also broadcasts pictures, time, adjusts the screen brightness to the ambient light.

    One of the interesting features that I liked is the Call Screen. Artificial intelligence detects that some annoying bank representative is calling you to offer a loan, and automatically answers: “Remove the number from the list.” Great feature.

    Conclusion

    In terms of smart home, Google competes with Amazon. In tablets, he competes with Apple and Microsoft, and in phones, apparently, he competes with the iPhone. Absolutely all the products presented at the presentation are not for Russia. You can only use a phone with one SIM card. If you have an opinion, you can write it in the comments. Thank you.

    Google wants to wish success. Keeping an eye on smartphones is just as good as keeping an eye on user data. And invite someone to make the events more interesting to watch.
