(AP) — The Latest on Google’s product event.

Google is stepping up the marketing of its new Pixel phones, and will offer them through Verizon as well as Google’s own online Play store.

Previously, Google phones have largely been limited to online orders.

The new phones will come in two screen sizes — 5 inches and 5.5 inches. The smaller one will cost $649, with orders starting Tuesday. The price for the larger version isn’t immediately available.

Google says the camera on Pixel phones will be “excellent.” Pixel owners will also get unlimited storage of photos at full resolution. Others get unlimited storage at high resolution of up to 16 megapixels; and anything sharper than that gets reduced in quality to qualify. However, Google’s Pixels cameras are 12 megapixels, so they would have qualified under the regular plan anyway.

The phones will be the first ones compatible with Google’s upcoming Daydream virtual-reality system
