Google Unveils New Pixel Phone This October

Google releases an improved headphone jack adapter with better battery life

Google is now offering a new USB-C to 3.5mm headphone adapter

Google has released a new and improved headphone jack adapter for the Google Pixel 2 family, offering a better experience for connecting your standard headphones to the Pixel's only USB-C port. Feel free to go ahead and get those eye rolls out of the way.

The accessory started out priced at $20, which was definitely quite a bit of money to fork over for a small adapter. The USB-C Digital to 3.5 mm headphone adapter apparently "works best on Pixel and other devices running Android P or higher", but ironically, Apple's own Lightning to 3.5 mm dongle is 3 bucks cheaper. The company has now quietly refreshed its headphone adapter, with its listing on the Google Store claiming the improved dongle provides 53 percent lower latency and 38 percent longer playback time than its predecessor. The new adaptor has now been spotted on Google Store, where it is priced at $12 (approximately Rs 870), which is $3 (approximately Rs 220) more than the previous variant. It's also slightly shorter and lighter than before.

US President Donald Trump also said the talks, which both countries intensified in recent weeks, were coming along well. Ottawa and Washington are trying to reach an agreement that could be submitted to the U.S.

At the event, the firm is expected to announced the widely leaked Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. Not only is Google hosting the press conference at a later date than expected, but the event was also moved to NY. According to one version, Google decided that it would be more appropriate from a financial point of view to the two presentations than to take the journalists, it-editions from different countries in one place.

Meanwhile, the one change that most potential customers might notice is the price difference.
