Google finally unveiled its new Pixel smartphones today. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are now official. Both handsets are available for pre-order starting today. Taking a page out of Samsung’s book it seems, Google is offering pre-order customers a nice incentive. It will give them a free Google Home Mini with their purchase. It’s a new product that was also launched today.
Google Home Mini has been designed for use in individual rooms. Google wants to make its AI-powered Assistant more accessible with this device. It comes with the Assistant baked right in.
The Google Home Mini has far-field microphones so it can hear the user from across the room even when there’s music playing. It also projects 360 degree sound. The device itself looks like a donut as it has a smooth design without any corners or edges.
The company today confirmed that customers who pick up the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will receive a free Google Home Mini. The device itself costs $49 so if you’re paying $650 for a Pixel 2 or $850 for a Pixel 2 XL, you’ll be glad to essentially get an added incentive with your purchase.
Google is yet to confirm when this promotion is going to end so we’ll update you when it provides that information.
