Release date Specs USA
The Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel XL 2 are particularly expected at the turn, the giant’s flagships are the subject of a lot of rumors and leaks in recent months and this is getting worse as the weeks go by. Here is all the information we currently have on their technical data sheets, design, price and availability
The manufacturers are not able to keep the secrecy concerning their terminals coming and Google is no exception to the rule since the leaks are particularly numerous about these two smartphones.
If the first wave of Pixel has not been marketed in the hex and many buyers have to turn to import, things will most likely be different regarding Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2. What to expect ? When will they land? And many other questions will find their answers here, it’s gone!
Google Pixel 2
The smaller of the siblings has according to information an OLED screen of 4.97 inches Full HD, then the SoC would be a Snapdragon 835. However some sources claim that one could also see a hypothetical Snapdragon 836 on board. This one is paired with 4 GB of RAM and 32 to 128 GB of storage space without the possibility of extending the memory.
After all it would not be surprising if a more upscale SoC is present within Google’s flagships. Last year the Pixel 1st of the name also had the premiere on the Snapdragon 821.
However, we have no recent information that demonstrates that the Snapdragon 836 is on track, so it seems more likely to see the S835 inside. However, as we are used to say, “wait and see”.
The sources mention that the battery life is 2770 mAh, the front sensor would take shots at 8 MP, the main photo sensor would take pictures at 12 MP and would be able to shoot in 4K. An IP53 certification is mentioned, which is good news.
Like Apple with its iPhone 7, the jack port will not be part of the menu. This is probably a choice related to its tightness or the desire not to clutter the smartphone, however this might put off some.
Google Pixel XL 2
The larger of the two has a 6-inch 2K OLED display (2560 x 1440 pixels) at 18: 9 ratio, the SoC is a Snapdragon 835/836 coupled with 4 GB of RAM. The storage space is also 64 or 128 GB without the possibility of extending it as usual at Google. The autonomy is entrusted to a battery of 3450 mAh.
The Google Pixel XL 2 has already made us dream in a leak unveiling 3D rendering that showed us from all angles via a video. However this was only the fantasy of an artist and unfortunately according to the latest information the design of the smartphone is far from what it showed us.
Google Pixel 2 : design
The design of the terminals of Google will not follow the trend of LG or Samsung by citing for example the Galaxy S8, G6 or V30. No borderless screen, Evan Blass the famous serial leakeur has unveiled renders that seem authentic. It must be acknowledged that the man enjoys a great notoriety since very often his information proves to be accurate.
However, the firm will undoubtedly try to differentiate itself in a totally different way by proposing for example a new functionality similar to Edge Sense that one finds on the HTC U11. These are of course only assumptions.
The back would be in curved glass and the fingerprint sensor always appears exactly as on the previous wave of Google Pixel.
Compared to the first visuals that had leaked at first, it is clear that it is a shock. Nevertheless, it is not the only manufacturer not to have crossed the border less step and a more trendy design.
As for the colors that will be available with the Pixel 2, they are 5 “Abundantly Red, Very Silver, Really Blue, Quite Black” (red, silver, blue, black and red / black). The Mountain View firm does not really take a risk on this.
Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2: gifted in photo?
Let’s put things in context before discussing the Pixel 2 case. At the official presentation of the first salvo, the firm immediately showed the muscles by announcing no more and no less that its smartphone was the best in the field.
Unsurprisingly, Google will undoubtedly impress us again with its Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, in all likelihood the firm is still camping on a monosensor for its back camera. Decidedly, the firm does not succumb to any tendency and row against the current.
This is a 12 MP photo sensor that is expected to last news, it should be identical on both flagships.
Android O at the controls
The Google Pixel 2 will not inaugurate the new version of Android, the first wave will have the prime since the deployment of the major new version of the OS is imminent.
However, it may be that the research giant offers us some surprises with why not some unusual features on the menu.
Google Assistant, which is at the heart of the user experience of the flagship of the research giant, did not speak the language of Moliere a few months ago. However, now things have evolved and Wizard is being deployed gradually on all terminals from Android 6 Marshmallow.
So there is no brake on their marketing in the hexagon, we expect an announcement for the end of this year with a marketing that will begin in the wake. We will not miss more details on this as soon as we have more information.
Google Pixels are not “affordable” smartphones and this is very unlikely to change with the arrival of the new siblings. The price range is estimated between 700 and 900 euros for models with 32 or 64 GB of storage space.
It is clear that this is a relatively expensive price, especially when you think of the Nexus which were smartphones a little more affordable was not so far away.
