Google unveils new range of AI-enabled devices

Google on Friday launched a new range of devices – ranging from phones, headphones, speakers, cameras and laptops – loaded with artificial intelligence (AI) aimed at giving rivals Amazon and Apple a run for their money.

The firm launched its second generation Google Pixel phone, which boasts larger and brighter screens, which takes up more of the front part of the device. The upgrade is in line with what is expected from Apple when it launches its iPhone X, set for release in November.

The Pixel XL at six inches, and five-inch Pixel, will also follow Apple’s iPhone 7 lead by removing the headphone jack.
