Just when you thought that phones couldn’t get any smarter, Google’s Pixel 2 is designed for artificial intelligence. While it is not designed as “elegantly” as an iPhone or Samsung Galaxy, the phone gives access to many Google services.

One feature includes a visual search engine. Using Google Lens, users can point the camera at any landmark, storefront, or object, and Google will retrieve reviews and store hours, web addresses, and phone numbers, according to Anick Jesdanun to Phys.org.

Google also gave the phone a new camera to help photos look more realistic, as the first phone’s software made photos look fake.

The phones set themselves apart with promises to bake in Google's powerful artificial-intelligence technology for quick and easy access to useful, even essential information. You get some of that right away, but more will come later through free software updates and a wireless accessory. (Credit: AP Photo/Jeff Chiu, File)
