On Tuesday, Google unveiled Pixel, its newest smartphone and answer to Apple’s recent iPhone 7. Google aims to assert itself in the market as a strong smartphone competitor to Apple and Samsung by releasing a device that, among other features, has a highly touted camera with unlimited storage and runs with Google Assistant – the company’s version of Apple’s Siri.

Google showed off the Pixel phone at a press event in San Francisco along with a number of other new devices, including the virtual reality Daydream View headset and Google Home, a Wi-Fi-enabled, voice-controlled device that uses Google Assistant to play music or answer questions.

“Building hardware and software together lets us take full advantage of capabilities like the Google Assistant,” Rick Osterloh, head of Google’s hardware group, told the crowd. “This is a natural step and we’re in it for the long run.”

The Pixel phone – which the company calls “the first phone made by Google inside and out” – comes in two sizes, 5 inches (slightly larger than the iPhone 7) or 5.5 inches (same as the iPhone 7 Plus).
