Google Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL Rumors: Updated Specifications Leaked

Google Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL Rumors: Updated Specifications Leaked

Just like the original Pixel phones, Google is expected to include stellar cameras on the Pixel 2 XL and Pixel 2.

Before the Pixel program started, Google used to ship Nexus smartphones with stock Android support.

The Pixel 2 XL is also expected to feature a dual camera setup on its back with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) found on at least one of the sensors. The handset will, of course, be water and dust resistant. The regular Pixel 2 will come in Just Black, Clearly White, and Kinda Blue colors.

Under the hood, as expected, the Google Pixel 2 will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, just like the majority of other flagship smartphones. It will reportedly include 4GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB internal storage. This means a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, same 64GB or 128GB onboard storage variants and Android 8.0 Oreo operating system. Now, a feature called "Active Edge" will also be a part of this package it seems, and it will allow you to squeeze the phone in order to launch Google Assistant or to mute incoming calls or alarms. Earlier this year, at the Google I/O Developer Conference, some Pixel devices were spotted running with a redesigned Pixel launcher.

Artem Russakovskii experienced the Verizon Pixel 2 for a short time and he revealed that Google will be adding an Always Listening Music feature in the Pixel 2 devices.

Strong opinions on NFL protests - both for and against
He also tweeted that National Football League players should be "fired or suspended" for " disrespecting our flag and country". Several NFL sponsors have backed the players' right to protest.

In addition, the Pixel 2 will carry a 2700mAh battery, instead of the larger 3520mAh cell in the Pixel 2 XL. We also know that the cameras will feature OIS and Google Imaging Chip. According to the latest reports, those who purchase the Google Pixel 2 will get unlimited Google Cloud storage until 2023, which is quite nice too.

Sources told Droid-Life that the Pixel 2 would be priced at $649 for the 64GB version and $749 for the 128GB model. Today, Android Authority has shared fresh details on the specifications of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL that it has received from an exclusive source. It will have the same design as the smaller Pixel, only with a larger screen.

The Pixel 2 XL will be coming with a curved edge-to-edge display that will support QHD resolution.

The Pixel 2 XL is likely to feature Google's second-generation fingerprint reader. The publication claims that it is not sure of the exact size of the display for Pixel 2 XL. Unfortunately, none of the upcoming Google handsets feature a microSD card slot, so the internal storage will be all they can rely on. The Pixel 2 XL is going to feature a e-SIM card that would allow users to seamlessly switch between networks in the U.S. The Pixel 2 XL will be powered by a 3,520 mAh battery.

With this transaction, HTC's almost 2,000 employees who worked with the company on its Pixel smartphone will join Google. With this new acquisition agreement, the two parties will further enhance their long-term stable partnership, which will not only inject strong innovative research and development into Google's hardware business, but also will ensure HTC's continuous innovation in smartphone and VR sectors. Even though they do seem to be powerful ones, they will have a tough time competing with the more modern- looking Apple iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 that have similar price tags.
