New Google Pixel 2, everything we know so far

During the last few weeks we have been seeing a lot of information about the new Google Pixel 2, a generation of smartphones that as we know will have two models differentiated solely by the size of their screen.

We know that these terminals have generated a lot of interest and so we wanted to make this article, in which we are going to leave a summary with everything we know so far of the new Google Pixel 2.

Google Pixel 2 Design

The Google Pixel 2 Design is expected to maintain the basic lines of the first generation models and also the same quality of finishes, although the latest rumors ensure that both will make the leap to large format screens that will cover almost the entire front.

In the images that accompany you can see some renders unofficial that allow us to get an idea of ​​the final aspect that could have the new Google Pixel 2.

Specifications

At hardware level this second generation will make a big leap but we do not expect any revolution. The most important change could be on the screen and the double rear camera.

Some authoritative publications believe that if Pixel 2 get enough powerful “iron” that this, coupled with the innovative design of the device and the latest Android 8.0 operating system, will be the “device of the year” the key to obtaining a novelty title. Recall Announcement Pixel 2 is expected this fall.

These will be the basic specifications of both terminals according to the most recent information:

  • 5 inch OLED screen (base model) and 5.6 inches (XL model) with resolution of 2560 x 1312 pixels.
  • SoC Snapdragon 835.
  • GPU Adreno 540.
  • 4 GB of RAM.
  • 128 GB of storage capacity.
  • Double rear camera of 12 MP, frontal of 7 MP.
  • Operating system: Android O.

The rear panel of the case of alleged Pixel 2 is equipped with a dual camera with dual LED flash, a fingerprint scanner and plastic insert for the antenna modules, and also has a brand logo of the manufacturer.

Price and release date

Unless surprise Google should maintain the usual renewal cycle, which leads us to think about a special presentation event for next October and an immediate availability.

The price of the Google Pixel 2 in 128GB version could be 749 dollars while the XL version would cost 849 dollars. If these prices are met we would have an increase of 100 dollars compared to the current generation, which in any case would be perfectly justified by the increase in storage capacity. In my opinion, high prices will not be favor of success of this smartphone in 2017.
