Google’s First Phone – level 3

Google’s First Phone – level 3

13-10-2016 07:00

Google made a phone from the inside and out and introduced it last week. Google calls it Pixel. It comes in two sizes – 5 or 5.5 inches – and in three colours, which the company is calling very silver, quite black, and really blue.

Unlike the new iPhone 7, it does have a normal 3.5 mm headphone jack, so no adaptor is needed. At the event in California, Google said that its teams had spent the previous year designing and optimising the camera. It says that it is the best camera in any phone, capturing significantly more light than others.

The Pixel was available to pre-order the day that it was introduced, being priced at £599 in the UK or $649 in the US.

Difficult words: adaptor (a device that you use to hook up two different things together), optimise (improve something so it runs better and faster), significantly (very much).
