Google on Wednesday announced a high-end Chromebook called the Pixelbook. The Home Max will cost $399, and be out in December, as a U.S. exclusive. Google: literally bringing the world together.

Google says a user can hold the button on the Pen and circle something on screen, with Assistant giving more information accordingly.

Google also talked up some of the kid-focused features for Google Home. It packs all the features of the original Google Home in a small and cute form-factor.

Mario Queiroz, VP of product management at Google, claims that the Google Pixel has 0.7 percent market share.

When Google Home Max launches later this year, it'll be accompanied by Smart Sound.

The 4-in-1 design allows the owner to use it in a variety of ways, such as in tablet form to read a book or propped up in tent mode to follow a recipe in the kitchen.

As rumored, the Pixel XL 2 does ditch the headphone jack (a USB-C to headphone adapter is included in the box), and it also comes in 64 and 128GB storage options. The trackpad has new, special touch processing algorithms to ensure accuracy. Both products are also available in Australia, Canada, Germany, India and United Kingdom. Both smartphone will be available in Black, White and Kinda Blue.

Pre-orders will commence on October 26 and will be on sale from November 1 (Pixel 2) and November 15 (Pixel 2 XL) in over 1,000 stores across the country.

Both Pixel 2 smartphones sport water-resistant aluminum unibody design and are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.

The Pixel 2 has its flash module to the left of the camera lens, while the Pixel 2 XL flips this round but aside from that, both devices have the same features. Its design is expected to be largely similar to the Google Pixel, and the company could remove a 3.5mm headphone port from the phone, relying exclusively on the USB Type-C port for charging, data transfer, and audio.

Google announced a new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, which is built on the features of Google Assistant and features on-device machine learning. For example, if you want to know who someone is, just circle his or her face with the pen and Google will provide the answer.

The Google Home Mini has been leaked in full detail earlier and, as expected, it is a smaller version of the Google Home smart speaker with built-in Google Assistant.

Google Home Max is priced at $399 and available in Chalk and Charcoal colors. The product will be more or less same as the Amazon Echo Dot, suggest reports.
