Google Pixel2 – Next Big Thing from Google
In 2016 the Nexus was out and the Pixel was in: Google rebranded its flagship Android phone line, took more control over the manufacturing process and added some extra AI intelligence in the form of the fledgling Google Assistant.
It has the highest rated smartphone camera. Ever. A battery that lasts all day. Unlimited storage for all your photos and videos. And it’s the first phone with the Google Assistant built in.
The Next Big Thing by Google
If you are not happy with the camera on your smartphone, this phone will give you an option to replace it with the high-end one by simply swapping the module with the one you want. Google has developed a smartphone which allows the consumer to slide out its parts like Lego blocks. Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects organisation used the next generation technology for different modular parts to be inflow with each other. ATAP developed the wireless capacity pads with the help of which communication with the main board of the smartphone and interaction among the modules is possible.
Users will benefit from the low cost of phones because they won’t need to store apps on their phone and will be able to access apps from a Google Pixel2 server. Users won’t have to worry about the phone’s storage capacity because their data will be stored in the Google Pixel2. Of course, they will have to a worry about the storage capacity of the Google Pixel2 and might have to pay extra for storing data beyond a free limit. Since the apps or software are not installed on the phone, there is more memory available to make the phone work efficiently.
Google Pixel2 seeks winning formula for the next big thing
[dropcap]D[/dropcap]esign is the thing that has probably divided people the most when it comes to the Pixel. Although the body is a high quality design, the top glass section has drawn a lot of criticism. It makes the phone a little different, making it distinctive so it sits apart from the iPhone and all of Android’s metal phones.
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he 2560 x 1440 pixels offered gives you the detail when magnified in a Daydream headset, it’s crisp and sharp in all things. We also think that AMOLED should remain the display of choice. Although some LCD displays are performing very well at the top level, AMOLED has impressed us the most recently.
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he Pixel 2 will have a much improved camera, though it apparently won’t be all about megapixels and more about extra features instead. The Pixel is coming from a strong place for photography, unlike the previous Nexus handsets, so we hope that continues.
Specs and hardware
[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hen it comes to power, the current Pixel devices opted for a new chip – Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 – a step-up over most of 2016’s flagship phones. Qualcomm doesn’t stand still and the Snapdragon 835 is ready to surpass this and move things forward again, with rumours saying the first phones on this hardware will appear in April. We’d expect the Snapdragon 835 to feature in the Pixel 2, supported by at least 4GB of RAM. With some companies pushing to 6GB, that may be a suggestion, although we’re yet to see any real demand for that sort of increase.
[dropcap]G[/dropcap]oogle Pixel 2 will come in two models, the standard Pixel 2 and then a Pixel 2B. Allegedly, the 2B will less powerful hardware and would release at a lower price. According to 9to5google, there is a possibility of a $50 increase in price.
Audio and speakers
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he Pixel has been flagged up recently as having some problems with its speakers . We wouldn’t expect a huge change in the speaker arrangements, we’re also not convinced that Google would drop the 3.5mm headphone socket. Hopefully, that will continue to be the convention for Pixel phones.
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he Pixel launched with Android 7 Nougat and a selection of exclusive features, like Google Assistant, Pixel Launcher and the Pixel camera. That unique software position is being chipped away as features appear elsewhere, but we’d expect the Pixel 2 to debut Google’s new software version.
Water proof it
[dropcap]I[/dropcap]f Google drops the ball here, they’ll rightly be ridiculed. Water proofing may not be a major issue for everyone, but it’s just one of those things that we’re coming to expect on these high-end devices, and one that really doesn’t come with any new compromises in the age of sealed and adhesive-ridden electronics.
Better battery life
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he Google Pixel actually had a good amount of battery life, but unfortunately for Google, it wasn’t class leading. Despite having a t 2,770mAh battery, the Pixel lasted an impressive 16hrs 23mins in our rigorous battery test, while the Pixel XL’s 3,450mAh battery, which lasted a still highly respectable 15hrs 55mins.
There was no leaks or rumor yet as to the release date of Google Pixel 2. Mirror, however, suggests that it will most probably release in October 2017.
Currently there aren’t many other rumours about what to expect, but that will change soon enough and we’ll keep you fully updated when they do.
