Google just announced the Pixel 2. Here's how it compares to the competition.
After months of speculation and an accidental leak last month, Google formally announced its latest phones at an event in the San Francisco Jazz Center: the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.
The phones are nearly identical in every way aside from size, battery and price. The Pixel 2, the smaller of the two, comes with a revamped camera, Daydream VR support and no headphone jack. On the outside the Pixel 2 looks similar to last year's Pixel phone. On the inside, the phone has a faster processor and is running the latest version of Android: Oreo 8.0.
