The iPhone X has 3 GB RAM, while the Pixel 2 XL has 4 GB.

Last month, Google expanded its hardware development capabilities by picking up a 2,000-person smartphone engineering team at HTC for $1.1 billion.

Talking about the display, the regular Pixel 2 features a 5-inch FHD (1920x1080) AMOLED display with 2.5D curved glass and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

The five-inch Pixel 2 with AMOLED display, priced at $649 and up, and the six-inch Pixel 2 XL with pOLED screen, which starts at $849, are set to begin shipping on October 19, although several reports indicate that early demand has already delayed the expected arrival of the larger device by almost a month.

Now, that we are already aware how impressive Pixel 2's camera setup is, let's look at its camera samples.

Not too long ago, Google had launched its latest range of its Pixel smartphones. The cameras of the two phones have been ranked the best - well ahead of the iPhone 8 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the closest rivals. Both cameras are able to capture 4K resolution videos. It records 4K videos @ 30fps, 1080p @ 30fps, 60fps, and 120fps. Google does win out in the front camera department: its selfie camera is 8MP versus the 7MP sensor found in the iPhone 8 Plus. Consumers were annoyed that such a cheap component would be binned, and bemoaned the fact that they would now need an expensive adapter to use their existing headphones - or face forking out for Lightning-enabled or Bluetooth-enabled headphones, instead.

"I think we did enough to win the game, there were just two points needed for us to get over the line", said Coetzee. But whether by 57 points or one, New Zealand found a way to win and cap another masterly tournament.

Well, we can't blame them as the Google Pixel 2's camera has bagged whopping score of 98 out of 100 on DxOMark.

In this week's top stories: Google announced its latest Made by Google product lineup, including the new Pixel 2 and 2 XL, a couple new Google Homes, the Pixelbook, and more.

Both the devices are designed in an aluminum unibody with the hybrid coating. Of course, the Pixel 2 XL does offer the better screen however. The XL has a prominent "forehead" and "chin", while the regular Pixel has chunky bezels on all sides. Pixel 2 starts from Rs 61,000 for 64GB and Rs 70,000 for 128GB variant.

So, users will definitely choose one of these smartphones when they see each software, and not when they look at the hardware specifications. The major difference is among their display size which is easily noticeable. Swiping left and right, meanwhile, changes the song if you're playing music.

"With all of the improvements built up over the past year, the Assistant can help you get more done and give you more time to focus on what matters", Huffman wrote in a blog post.
