Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones can come out sooner than expected

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL

Original smartphones Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL went on sale in October last year, so at the moment they are still formally can be considered novelties.

The first renders of the second “pixel” from Google show design is very reminiscent of LG G6: the big screen to the rest of the body, but the side frames quite noticeable, unlike other conceptual flagship Samsung Galaxy S8 and Xiaomi Mi Mix.

However, behind the new “google phone” will increasingly resemble Huawei Mate 9 Location dual-core camera and fingerprint reader (in the middle). The housing apparatus is likely to be made of metal, but in the upper part is located a large rectangular plastic insert with a protective glass.

The successors, which are codenamed Walleye (Pixel 2) and Muskie (Pixel 2 XL), are supposed to be released in six months. New devices should be equipped with a single-chip system Snapdragon 835, as well as an even better camera. Recall, Google Pixel currently heads the mobile device rating DxOMark.

Such “cosmetic” improvements Qualcomm’s unlikely to allow Google Pixel 2 win in synthetic tests the next Apple iPhone 7s, but the novelty has all chances to become the most powerful smartphones based on the Android OS at the time of its release. The more so because the firmware development deal with the authors of this “OSes”.

One of the developers of Google merged into the network information that it is already testing a smartphone Google Pixel 2, which, as you might guess, should run the operating system Android 8.0. This may indicate that the second generation of smartphones Google Pixel may come out earlier than expected.

It is worth remembering that in August or September there will be an announcement of Samsung Galaxy Note 8, also in September the iPhone 8 is expected to be released. Perhaps this time, Google decided to change the schedule, releasing its new products simultaneously with competitors or even earlier than Samsung and Apple.

The rest of the specifications Google Pixel 2 remains a mystery. In particular, the following points are clear:

  • Fine resolution and screen size. It is possible that the new “inherit” from LG G6 Full Vision matrix with a resolution of QHD + (it would be logical).
  • Battery capacity. With a probability of 100%, it will be non-removable, and cannot boast high values mAh.
  • Presence of 3.5 mm jack for headphones and headsets. At LG G6 equipped. But whether to save the search giant wants it? If Google Pixel 2 creators abandon this familiar elements, it will be a signal for other smartphone manufacturers: analog connector is not needed and should remain in the past.
  • The presence of alternative biometric user identification – an iris scanner and face recognition using a front camera.
