Google has presented Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro smartphones with new features based on artificial intelligence.
Last Wednesday, October 4, a message was published in the blog of this technology giant, according to which these devices were designed in such a way as to offer users a more useful and largely individualized experience, as a result of which the level of effectiveness of consumer actions will increase.
New smartphones have received a summing-up function that generates a list of web pages. With the help of this list, the consumer can get acquainted with the main semantic components of the structure of the content of websites in the shortest possible time without having to dive into the entire array of information. The relevant data is contained in a message published on the blog of the technology giant.
Also, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro have the function of reading aloud. Another ability of smartphones is the translation of web pages. In this case, users are given the opportunity to listen to articles on the go.
In the new devices, the improved configuration of artificial intelligence guarantees a more natural format of consumer interaction with smartphones. In practical terms, this feature is manifested in the fact that users have the opportunity to talk with mobile phones using colloquial speech, which does not provide for so-called official formal formulations characterized by what can be designated as ossified verbality.
Also, the new devices are equipped with an improved call screen function. As a result of the modernization of this function, the number of unwanted calls was reduced by an average of 50%. Contextual responses for so-called simple calls are also provided. This partially reduces the need for device owners to answer the phone.
A message published on the company’s blog indicates that the technology giant has made significant efforts to ensure a high level of protection of users’ personal information. Google Tensor G3 and the Titan M2 security chip minimize the risk of leakage of confidential data of device owners. New smartphones are more resistant to sophisticated attacks.
Face Unlock on Pixel 8 corresponds to the highest biometric class of Android. In this case, users are provided with secure access to compatible banking and payment apps.
New smartphones have a metal finish. In this case, recycled materials are used. The new devices are also equipped with upgraded camera systems.
The Pixel 8 Pro has a new temperature sensor on the back. This function will be useful in cases where it is necessary to determine whether the frying pan is sufficiently heated for cooking and to determine how heated a baby’s bottle is.
The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are already available for pre-order at a price of $699 and $999 respectively. Smartphones will be available for purchase from October 12.
The new devices were presented at a time when Google’s main competitor, which is Apple, is strengthening the capabilities of generative artificial intelligence in its developments. Currently, Tim Cook’s company is recruiting for dozens of positions to work on large language models. These models will be transferred to mobile devices.
