Google’s Pixel phones will have a number of exclusive features including the Pixel Launcher, 24/7 support and for shutterbugs unlimited Google Photos storage of photos and videos at full resolution.
The unlimited feature at full resolution means you avoid the compression that’s applied to pictures and video if you choose the standard unlimited option for Google Photos storage. The unlimited storage at full resolution bonus even extends to the full 4K resolution videos you can capture on the Pixel phones.
The unlimited storage is only for photos and videos uploaded from the device, so there’s no switch on your account that allows for this feature for anything you upload.
Google says that thanks to smart phones over 1 trillion photos were taken last year, making unlimited storage for these photos and videos a pretty big deal. If you’re a keen shutterbug and want great storage, then this is a pretty good deal.
