Microsoft and Pixel makers Microsoft and Nokia have launched a new Pixel 2 and Pixel XL smartphone, respectively, and now the tech giants have also announced a new smartphone in a few more colors.
The new phones have been unveiled alongside a few new Pixel accessories, including a $199 “Puckerup” Bluetooth keyboard case.
The new phones will be available in the U.S. for $299 starting May 1.
The Pixel 2 comes with an 8-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, an upgraded Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 64GB of storage, with 64GB storage available for $499.
The phone also has an upgraded battery, with an upgraded 1,200mAh battery, up to 6GB of RAM, up for $649.
The $349 Pixel 2XL is a premium-priced phone, with the camera up to 12 megapixels, the fingerprint scanner up to 8,000 pixels and the display up to 5 megapaces.
Microsoft says the Pixel 2 phones will feature a “wide range of new design features,” such as a “smartglass” front panel that can display notifications and photos, as well as a physical home button and a fingerprint reader.
Google’s Pixel phones have also been unveiled, but Microsoft is the only OEM with a Pixel 2 smartphone.
Google’s Android phone runs on a new version of the Android operating system, which is designed for the web.
Microsoft, which has previously released its own smartphones running the Chrome OS operating system that runs on Windows, is taking a different approach.
Microsoft’s Surface line of devices, which includes the Surface Pro 3, Surface Pro 4, Surface Book and Surface Laptop, all run on Windows 8.1.
The Surface Pro 5, which Microsoft is releasing on April 14, is an updated version of Microsoft’s current Windows 8 operating system.
Microsoft’s new phones and the accessories announced Thursday are aimed at both new and existing Pixel owners.
The phones are available in two different color options: a black, aluminum, and a white version.
The aluminum version is priced at $249 and includes the fingerprint sensor and screen, while the white version is $349.
The metal phones come with a 16GB storage option and 64MB of RAM and will be $399, while 32GB of memory will be included.
The plastic phones have a 16MP camera and an improved processor, and come in four different colors, including blue, green, red, and purple.
