Internet Can't Stop Laughing At The Colour Names for Google's Pixel

What about somewhat gold, asked some?

Internet Can't Stop Laughing At The Colour Names for Google's Pixel
(Photo: Reuters/Sabrina Ellis, Director of Product Management at Google, speaks about the new Pixel phone during the presentation of new Google hardware in San Francisco.)

Google on Tuesday launched an aggressive challenge to technology giants like Apple and Samsung, introducing a new line of smartphones called Pixel and other gadgets designed to showcase a digital helper the company calls "Google Assistant.".

At a starting price of roughly $650 (to start at Rs 57,000 in India), Pixel phones, launched by Google, are aimed at the same markets as Apple's iPhone and Samsung's Galaxy flagship phones.

While announcing the new Pixel phones, Google executives touted features like a powerful camera, a long-lasting battery — and a dedicated headphone jack, which Apple recently eliminated from its latest iPhones. But it's the name of the colours in which the Pixel phones will be sold that has the internet talking - quite black, very silver and really blue.

Whether these names are a result of Google's poor research on adjectives that it could use or a possible attempt to poke fun at Apple, which recently announced it's iPhone 7 range in two new colours - black and jet black, is something that most people on the internet are trying to figure out.

And although the origin of such bizarre names remain undisclosed, one thing is certain that they have managed to bring out the funny side of people online.

Here are some hilarious reactions to the new colours that Pixels smartphones will be available in.

"How we imagine Google naming the Pixel colours (sic)."

"Quite Black", "Very Silver", and "Really Blue". Ok now they're just trolling Apple. (sic)"

"If I ever have to fill out my race on an application, I’ll be putting quite black from now on.#googlepixel (sic)"

"Okay so the colour names for Googles Pixel phone are absurd. "Quite Black, Really Blue, Very Silver." I'm looking for kinda-sorta off-white (sic)."

"The new phone by Google comes in colours called "Very Silver," "Quite Black," and "Really Blue." Who was in charge of this, u r my soulmate (sic)."

"When you can't decide between Black and Jet Black. #MadeByGoogle (sic)."

Other Pixel Colours: Weed Green, Jon Ive Grey, Mole Poblano Brown, Malbec Purple, Kitty Kitty Cat #MadeByGoogle 9sic)."

"Wow, such colours for the new @Google Pixel phones. Where is the "Somewhat Gold" option, though? (sic)"

The new Pixel phones will be sold online, through retail chains like Best Buy and various wireless carriers around the world, although the company said it has an exclusive deal with Verizon in the United States.
