Verizon unboxes Pixel in new promotional video


Capitalizing on their position as the exclusive carrier for the new Pixel and Pixel XL phones made by Google, Verizon has released an “unboxing” video for the Pixel. The unboxing part is really only the first few seconds of the video as the devices are shown being taken out of their boxes. After that, Verizon focuses on some of the other key features that Google covered in their event today, notably the power of the camera which was used to capture all of the images used in the video.

Verizon’s video follows the new user through their day using a time-lapse-esque sequence of pictures interspersed with slides describing some of the features of the new Pixel. No doubt the two minute twenty second video has been constructed so it can be broken down for shorter 30 second spots shown on TV that focus on just one feature.

Verizon manages to cover all the key points that Google went over in the launch event for the Pixel. In addition to the capabilities of the camera, they highlight the unlimited storage at full resolution that users will get for their photos and videos taken with a Pixel device. The videographer takes viewers on a trip to a few locations and in the process demonstrates the power of Google Assistant. Verizon even manages to touch on a couple Google products like Translate and Android Pay in the course of the adventure. Things are wrapped up with a nod to the fast charging that will provide 7 hours worth of charge in just 15 minutes.
