Always-On Display

The new Pixel 2 smartphones will sport a new search box at the bottom of the screen, beneath the app dock. This makes using Google itself incredibly simple on Pixel 2, as it's the first thing under your thumb as you're about to use the phone.

Google has also included an "at a glance" agenda widget that shows your upcoming meetings, the date, and even the temperature. The always-on display will show notifications, and the time, too.

Google Lens

This is something smartphones will do more and more as computing power, AI, and deep learning technologies continue to evolve. Google Lens lets you point your Pixel camera at objects like books and landmarks, which Google will give you information on them.

Not only that, but the feature will also let you scan email addresses and Wi-Fi passwords automatically putting that information into use. Nifty.

Price & Availability

Google is offering Pixel 2 in white, black, and "kinda blue" for $649 and $749 for the 64GB, and 128GB versions respectively. The Pixel 2 XL, on the other hand, will only have two colors, black and white, and will be priced at $849 for the 64GB version, and $949 for the 128GB model.
