Google just announced its new flagship Android smartphone, the Google Pixel XL.

The Pixel XL comes with Google Assistant built-in, offering easy access to the new AI assistant. Just hold down the home button and then speak a voice command. It features a sleek design that was developed by Google. It packs a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 821 processor, a 3,450mAh battery, 4GB of RAM, 32GB or 128GB of storage, a fingerprint reader in back, a USB-C port and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.

Google also included a powerful 12-megapixel rear camera with some impressive photography features. That includes Smartburst, which takes a bunch of photos at once and then finds the best one for you. Video stabilization promises to keep your videos smooth even if your hands are shaking. Of course, you get Google Photos built-in, so all your pictures get stored and organized automatically in the cloud. As an extra bonus, you get original quality cloud storage for all your videos and photos.
