Google’s First Phone – level 2

13-10-2016 07:00

Google made its first phone and introduced it last week. The phone is called Pixel. It comes in two sizes and three colours.

Unlike the new iPhone 7, the Pixel has a normal 3.5 mm headphone jack. Google says that it has the best camera in a phone. It captures much more light than cameras of other phones.

After Google introduced the Pixel, people could pre-order it. It costs £599 in the UK and $649 in the USA.

Difficult words: introduce (show people something for the first time), capture (catch, “see”), pre-order (say that you want to buy something before it is in shops).

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