Coming straight out of New York, Google has just announced its new flagship phones – the Google Pixel 3, and the Pixel 3 XL. Even though the phone just got announced, we knew pretty much everything there was to know about the phones, so much was the high levels of leaks attached to the phones.
Now, while a lot was leaked, one thing which wasn’t quite expected, or actually anticipated, is that Google has gone on to include the Google Pixel USB-C earbuds, along with the dongle. Much like last year’s Pixel Buds, the new Pixel USB-C earbuds fully allow for real time Google Translate, which would occur via the Google translate app, and retain some loop architecture. To add to all these impressive features, the USB-C earbuds also happen to support the 24-bit audio playback.
Unsurprisingly though, the Google Pixel USB-C earbuds are made only for Google – coming with the “Made for Google” trademark attached to it. This is actually much like the Jaybird Tarah – as this ensures complete capability with pretty much all Google devices.
The listeners can take benefit of this by asking the Google assistant for directions, set reminders, send texts, and much, much more. To add to this, users may also just receive notification updates, however, this obviously remains to be a thing for the future.
The inclusion of USB-C earbuds was not anticipated, however, is obviously greatly appreciated, however, the added dongle is preferred for those avoiding the USB-C audio mess. Also additionally, this greatly trumps Apple’s dongle misstep and also has the ability to reduce latency by around 53 percent.
Not only is the latency factor greatly reduced, but also consider the fact that the Google dongle also greatly reduces power consumption, and this results in 38 percent more of playback time.
And if you don’t happen to be getting the Pixel 3 phones, however, do want the earbuds, you can actually do so by getting the earbuds, as they are available on the market – for a very mediocre price of around 30 dollars.
Will the Pixel phones be a success? That remains to be seen. However, the good signs are certainly there for Google, that these phones would turn out to be a success, as not only the inclusion of the earbuds much appreciated, but also that the display of the phones much better than last year’s phones. Obviously the issue that comes with the Pixel 3 XL is the problem of the notch, however, whether or not this remains to be a major problem, only time will tell.
