The tiny but smart Google Clips camera is now available to order in the US
Remember the interesting Clips camera that Google announced in October, at the same time with its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones? Well, the device is now finally available to order in the US. 

Priced at $249, Google Clips can be shipped for free within the US, although not before March 2. Even if you choose expedited delivery at check out (for an extra $17.99), it looks like Google can't ship the camera before February 28. 

While it has a button that lets you take photos manually, the strength of Google Clips lies in the fact that, thanks to built-in artificial intelligence, it can shoot photos and clips automatically - by detecting faces, smiles, or simply well framed scenes. The camera doesn't necessarily need an Internet connection to record images. It has 16 GB of internal memory, and you can transfer content to your phone both via cable, and wirelessly.  

If you don't think the Google Clips camera is too expensive, and you plan to buy it, do note that it will only support the following handsets (for the beginning): 

  • all Pixel phones
  • Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S8 series (running Android 7 or newer)
  • all iPhone models starting with the iPhone 6 (running iOS 11 or newer), but excluding the iPhone SE

You can take a closer look at Google's new smart, family-friendly camera in our Google Clips hands-on (video included).

I'll get this if it were available outside the US.

Funny how a google product supports more iPhone models than Android models.

I doubt that other Android devices won't be able to run it when they not only have Nougat but Oreo as well, which the S7 or S8 do not have officially right now.

Would need one for those crazy nights but don't think it will go well with low light shots.
