Google takes a jab at Apple while announcing free unlimited storage for Pixel photos and videos
Google just unveiled the Pixel and Pixel XL, its very latest smartphones that come to replace the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P of last year. One of the new features that the Pixel and Pixel XL are offering is free, unlimited storage space for photos and videos at original quality. Basically, you'll be able to store as many photos and videos as you want on Google's servers, including 4K videos. Of course, Google already offers unlimited storage, but only for videos up to 1080p.

While announcing that Pixel owners would get unlimited storage, and saying that they'd never have to worry about running out of space, Google showed the image that you can see below. That's a "Storage Full" message that often pops up on devices like iPhones or iPads, so Google obviously wants us to know that it's besting Apple when it comes to backing up all your photos and videos. Apple currently offers only 5 GB of free storage on iCloud, and you have to pay if you need more space for your content.

The Google Pixel and Pixel XL will be available to pre-order starting later today, and should start shipping in two weeks.
