Pichai believes that the world will move from a mobile first world to an AI first world.

The Google Pixel smartphone is available for pre-order from Tuesday starting at $649 in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany and Australia, while pre-orders in India will begin October 13. Both are US devices, but they outsource hardware to China and Taiwan.

Google had briefly been involved in manufacturing its own phones when it acquired Motorola back in 2012, though it sold Motorola Mobility on to Lenovo in 2014.

While the still-unreleased Google Pixel isn't on AnTuTu's list, a similarly-specced phone is.

"Google today demonstrated that it's finally serious about hardware", said Jan Dawson at Jackdaw Research.

Aside from the camera being extremely top notch, the Google Pixel, and Pixel XL has another ace up its sleeve and it is the Google Assistant.

Google's latest smartphones, the Pixel and Pixel XL are offered by Verizon, being the only United States carrier to make these phones available to its customers. But competition is good, of course, Google may have an unfair advantage since they are the ones making the software that these other manufacturers use.

According to the Google store, the Google Pixel will cost a whopping $650 while the Daydream View VR headset will run for an approximate $80 although Android fans can get both devices for the price of the Google Pixel by simply preordering the smartphone.

Google Pixel will come in two sizes: 5-inch and 5.5-inch XL that will cost $649 and $769 respectively, nearly similar to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

It remains to be seen whether customers decide to pay out for Google's new offerings, but it could be the start of a serious shakeup to the luxury smartphone market, generally dominated by Samsung and Apple.

The Pixel is one of several gadgets Google announced Tuesday in San Francisco. "They don't exactly swing anyone around the room". A big part of the announcement was it being available exclusively from Verizon Wireless.

Also, the camera works with Google Photos, which automatically creates content like slideshows from the pictures you've taken.

The company's strong suit has always been providing software and web services. Google says Home will be available in the United Kingdom "in the future", although that's as much detail as we have right now.

The Daydream View is made with lightweight breathable fabric to keep you comfortable when it is strapped to your face.

Daydream View and the controller will be out in November for $79.
