Google’s First Phone – level 1

13-10-2016 07:00

This news is about technology. Google makes a phone. It is its first phone. Google calls it Pixel. It comes in two sizes. You can choose from three colours.

The iPhone 7 is a new phone, too. It does not have the 3.5 mm headphone jack. Some people do not like this. The Pixel has the 3.5 mm headphone jack.

The Pixel has a camera. Google says that it is a very good camera. It can catch more light.

The Pixel is not in shops. It is very new. You must wait to buy it.

Difficult words: technology (electronic things that we use), size (how big something is), 3.5 mm headphone jack (a small space in the phone where you connect your headphones – this helps you hear music or other sounds from the phone and you put it in your ears).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
