The Google Pixel and Pixel XL are all set to launch around the world in October, but thanks to VentureBeat, what we have for you today are alleged renders of the two smartphones, ahead of time. What you see above is the smaller Pixel, with 5-inch Full HD display, 4GB of RAM, possibly a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 (2GHz clock speed) processor, 32GB of internal storage and a 2,770mAh battery to power it all. There will also be a 12-megapixel rear snapper, an 8-megapixel selfie cam, USB Type-C, fingerprint scanner at the back and maybe even a 3.5mm headphone jack if we are lucky!



The Pixel XL pictured above will almost be identical to its smaller brother, except a bigger, better display and battery. The display on it will supposedly sport a 1440p Quad High Definition panel stretched over 5.5-inches. The battery is also significantly bigger at 3,450mAh in order to power that large QHD display. The two smartphones from Google are rumoured to be more expensive than any of the previous smartphones from the brand with a price tag that starts at $649. Both smartphones are being manufactured by HTC, under the Google Pixel branding.

Allo was announced earlier in 2016 at the Google I/O and the new messaging app is finally becoming available to Android and iOS devices around the world. If you are not aware about what makes Allo special in a world that's filled with messaging apps from different developers, let us enlighten you. Allo will work in perfect coordination with the new Google Assistant. In other words, Google Assistant is embedded as a part of the new messenger, which will allow users to reply to conversations based on the suggestions by the Google Assistant and perform in-app searches through both your personal data on the phone and also the internet.


Google Assistant is said to take digital assistance to another level through direct interactions with the evolving AI incorporated into the program. It will take the experience you had from Google Now and raise it up by quite a few notches. Now that Allo is finally here, we will learn about new ways to utilize the digital assistant. Keep in mind though, Allo is strictly limited to mobile devices only for now and won't be available on desktops for a while. Download it and give it a try now, it's free!

Google has now confirmed that the new Pixel phones will be unveiled at a press event on October 4. What it means is that we do not have any official photos of the two upcoming flagships from Google yet, but unofficial leaks are there before time as usual. The white Pixel and Pixel XL phones that we see here show a metal unibody design at the bottom with the antenna panel, but glass plating takes precedence on top. As it is actually designed by HTC, one cannot help but be reminded of the HTC One A9 that we saw last year.



In case you are wondering, Pixel is the new name adopted by Google this year for their upcoming phones, ditching the Nexus tag for now at least. Also, if you have missed a few updates recently, the Pixel with a 5-inch display is codenamed Marlin and the Pixel XL with a 5.5-inch display is codenamed Sailfish. The two smartphones will probably be powered by the same SD 820 processor and 4GB RAM. Interestingly, the Pixels will also bring Android Nougat version 7.1 with them.

Google translate is one of the most useful apps out there and now it will allow you to translate text without even having to switch between the app you are currently in and Google Translate. In supported messaging applications like Whatsapp, all you will need to do is copy the text that you want to translate and an option to use Google Translate will become available on the spot. You will however, need to be running at least Android version 4.2 (the later the better) to avail the feature though.


Apple users on the other hand, will get access to the offline translation feature on Google Translate for the first time. One may say that it's a little late though as the ability to translate without an active internet connection has been a part of the Android OS versions for quite a while now. Nevertheless, Google has improved upon the feature by compressing the 52 downloadable language packs to roughly 25MB each. The summary is that both iOS users and Android users of the Google Translate will be getting updates, albeit with varying added functionalities.

On September 19, Google announced Google Trips for Android and iOS, a traveller's app that's designed to help you with not only everything you may need while planning your trip, but also while on it. From organizing flights to managing hotel reservations, it will do it all and it's completely free to use. Additionally, it can collect data from your trip related Google searches and use that history to intelligently recommend places and local attractions to you. Google maps are of course a part of the entire arrangement with clear walking routes, driving routes and other travel options as applicable. The part which we liked the most about Google Trips is the fact that you can download all this information on your phone even before you leave your home, so that bad cellular reception or international roaming bills doesn't interfere with your experience.



With detailed information on over 200 cities (and increasing) around the world and the ability to function offline, Google Trips is a must have for frequent travellers. Considering the fact that the app is completely free and will only continue to grow beyond its immediate limitations with each passing day, paid services like TripIt, which are built around the travelling industry, might start to get a little worried.
