When you think about devices you use every day, your phone is probably the first thing that comes to mind.
Your phone should be as stylish as you are, a device that reflects your personality and feels good in your hand. Above all, it should work flawlessly.
That’s just what the Google Pixel design team discussed when they began thinking about the newest phone designs. “We wanted to make devices that feel soft and approachable, like they’re a part of your life,” says Brian Cutter, an industrial designer who leads the Colour, Material and Finish team for Pixel. That means they have a look you want to show off, and they’re easy enough to take anywhere.
When it came to thinking about the latest in Pixel’s A-series,
“The overall theme here was playful simplicity,” says Cutter. For colour, the team opted for a springtime palette in four colours: Charcoal, Sea, Snow and the Google Store exclusive colour Coral. To find the perfect hue, Cutter looked to items from the real world, as with Sea, which was inspired by ice and Arctic glaciers. “We chose these primary colours that look bright from a distance but up close have depth to them,” Cutter says.
Pixel phones are made to be helpful and easy to use, so simplicity runs through all designs. That’s why
It all hinges on the hinge, according to Cutter, the most durable hinge on any foldable phone. 2 It’s so important that the Pixel design team decided to create the Fold around it. “A lot of other phones try to blend the hinge into the device, but we wanted it to stand out,” he says. With Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus™ on the outer screen and an IPX8 rating for water resistance, the Pixel Fold is built to last.2 It’s all wrapped up in a slim body with a perfect weight distribution, so it fits perfectly in your pocket or in your hand, making it the thinnest foldable of all.3
Google designs its products with an eye on how people use them every day. Since tablets spend most of the day at home, the Google Pixel Tablet comes with a Charging Speaker Dock that makes it more helpful in your home. When it’s locked and docked, the tablet goes into Hub Mode, which lets you control your other smart home devices hands-free.4 You can also get some of the best features of a smart display, like a digital photo frame, smart home controls, and hands-free help from Google.1
Just say “Hey Google” to play music and videos, get answers, turn the lights on, set timers, and more.5 Its enclosure was designed with a nano-ceramic coating that makes it both durable and grippable. And the three beautiful colours give the Pixel Tablet an elegant look.
“It’s not just a practical thing,” says Cutter. “The dock gives the tablet a home, and makes it more helpful at home.”
Good phone and tablet design makes you want to show off your device, not hide it away. Whether it’s the inviting new colours on Pixel 7a, the innovative design of Pixel Fold or the revolutionary Pixel Tablet and dock, the best devices are the ones that look as good as they work.
