It seems like that Google is going to launch the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones on October 4th this year just like launching the original Pixel and Pixel XL on October 4th last year. Google has been giving clear hints about this in their online advertisements telling users “Funny you should ask. On October 4th”.They have even created a whole new web site for this.
It is expected that Pixel 2 built on HTC will have only small updates from original Pixel while its larger brother Pixel 2 XL built using LG will have whole lots of new improvements. Both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will have stereo speakers and will be water resisting .There will no jack for head phones; instead users will have to use assistant powered wireless ear buds (Android Oreo’s new audio powers must have been handy hear!)
Here are the 3 main benefits of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL we can derive from online advertisement videos by Google:
- Longer battery life.
- Superior camera.
- Larger storage.
According to online rumors Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL,
- Could have squeezable edges with pressure sensitive frame which you can use to on camera, open apps and turn on flash light etc.
- Could be slimmer in design.
- Could be expensive (Google’s Osterloh says that Pixel will stay premium; so we can’t think that prices would be cheaper.)
- Could be launched with Android Oreo the newest software update.
Last year, Google has n’t been able to provide enough stock of the original Pixels, sometimes devices have been sold out for months. So this year we wish that Google will be able to supply up to the demand as a leader in Smart Phone development industry.
