Google unveil a series of products, including two new phones, a virtual reality headset and the Chromecast Ultra at an event in San Francisco.

The flagship announcement was the introduction of Pixel, the first Google phone to carry exclusively Google branding. The company called it the “first phone made by Google inside and out.” The two phones — Pixel and Pixel XL — will be available in India, priced at Rs 57,000 onwards, in 32GB and 128GB versions.

It’s the first phone to work with Google’s 2nd VR headset named Daydream View, which is made from an unconventional material. The first one called Cardboard was made out of cardboard and this one is made of fabric.

Google unveiled its next-generation content streaming device, the Chromecast Ultra. The gadget, which has sold 30 million units to date, supports 4K streaming. Chromecast Ultra will be available for $69 this fall.

Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai described the world of the future. “In this world computing will be universally available, it’ll be there everywhere,”
