Google Unveils New Pixel Phone This October

Not only is Google hosting the press conference at a later date than expected, but the event was also moved to NY.

Google's official USB-C to 3.5mm headphone adapter has had a bit of a rollercoaster existence ever since it was unveiled after the company announced the headphone jack-less Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. But now Google is raising the value support up to $12 as its introduces a fresh mannequin of adapter which is smaller and more vital than its predecessor. You won't notice any actual changes, as it's just 2.8mm shorter, and the other dimensions are less than a millimeter smaller. As well as making a previously back-breaking 5.3g cable a feather-light 4.9g, Google has managed to improve its performance too.

Wait! There's more! Playback time has also been improved by 38 per cent because it draws less power from your phone.

At first, Google charged a stunning $20 for the adapter on its own, but quickly lowered the price down to $9 to match Apple's own adapter when consumers (understandably) revolted. You should get around a 40% improvement in battery life while listening to music with the dongle plugged in thanks to it being more efficient.

Finally, the new adapter shaves off a little material in every dimension, although so little that it may be completely imperceptible without a side-by-side comparison. No madam, I'm not pulling your leg. Sir, I am not a "filthy liar" - see for yourself!
