Final hour leaks suggested Google Clips would be some kind of accessory -- but neglected to mention what for, and what it would do. Now we know: it's a Google-powered Narrative camera accessory that uses the company's AI know-how to automagically take photos and videos. (Yes, there's still a shutter button.)

Google says it'll pair with Android 7.0 or higher, and will take animated Motion photos as well as stills and video. Yes, there's auto-focus alongside an f/2.4 lens with 130-degree capture angles, Bluetooth LE, USB-C, and we're promised three hours of "smart capture" -- that's where Google will use its AI skills to discern well-defined, interesting images. Clips will also link directly to your phone, with no need for an internet connection.
