Google Lens starts rolling out for Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones

Google Lens starts rolling out for Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones

Google is having a rough time of it with its new Pixel smartphones, following on from the equally bad experience it had with the well-reviewed, but lacking in sales, first edition Pixel a year ago. Unfortunately, there are no more details around the alleged "crosshatch", "albacore" and "blueline" devices for now. Droid-Life points that the source referred to the trio as Pixel devices.

From the looks of it, Google may do something increasingly popular: set aside the best features for the larger Pixel 3 device next year, to paraphrase something that Google said during the Pixel 2 launch about Apple's 2017 iPhone lineup. The report adds that out of three rumoured Pixel devices: two will belong to premium segment while the third will be high-end. Do tell us that you think of three pixel devices for next year launch in the comment section below and we will keep you updated with any information that surfaces regarding these devices. But they clarified that the details are not yet available and it seems to be a mystery for them.

For the first-gen Pixel devices, Google Lens is slowly rolling out through the Photos app.

According to Reddit thread, many users of the original Pixel devices are seeing the latest feature when they open Google Photos.


For now, Google will call their smartphones by the name A, B and C, just to avoid their identities from the leaks.

All thought, it is too early to predict anything for the 2018 series of Pixel.

"We take all reports of issues very seriously, and our engineers investigate quickly", Mario Queiroz, Google's vice president for Pixel product management, said in an emailed statement to Reuters.
