Here’s everything Google announced:

The Pixel has a 5-inch screen and the XL has a 5.5-inch screen, but other than that, they’re essentially the same. The Pixels will also run the latest version of Android, called Nougat, and Google claims they have the best cameras ever put in a smartphone.
Other than that, they have a lot of the other high-end features you’d expect from a premium smartphone.
The Pixel will start at $649, and you can buy it unlocked from Google or through Verizon.”

Daydream View will cost $79 and goes on sale in November.”

title=”An easy-to-use WiFi router called Google WiFi.”
content=”Google WiFi aims to solve a lot of the headaches that come with setting up a new router. It has an easy setup process through a companion app, and lets you control who has access to the internet and when.
It also lets you create a mesh network throughout your home when you add additional routers where the connection is weak to boost the signal.
Google WiFi will cost $129. You can also buy a three-pack for $299.

title=”A new digital helper called Google Assistant.”
content=”Google Assistant is Google’s answer to Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, and Microsoft’s Cortana.
It’s making its debut on the new hardware products announced by Google, and will eventually be available on more Android devices and Google apps.
Assistant does everything you’d expect from an AI helper, but with the added benefit of Google’s vast ‘Knowledge Graph’ that’s loaded with data no other company can match. Assistant is just getting started, and will get smarter over time the more people use it.”
