Google has launched a new line in smartphones along with other gadgets designed to take on electronic giants like Apple and Samsung.

The decision to brand the phones with the Pixel name, rather than Nexus, marks a break with the past, and is intended to signify that they were designed in house rather than by another manufacturer.

The Google Pixel phone has a virtual assistant.

Its Home device is a sleek internet-connected speaker that's designed to respond to voice commands.
