Google Pixel 2 full specs and price:
Last year’s Google Pixel and Pixel XL were received amidst much fanfare but were not the highest selling phones. The search engine giant has confirmed the rumours that it is working on the successors to Pixel and Pixel XL, and that the new phones will be aimed at the premium segment. So far, there have been only a few leaks about the so-called Google Pixel 2. These are some of the rumours floating around and let’s have a look at what the pixel 2 holds.
Dual camera on the front for your selfies:
A while ago, designers at YouTube channel Concept Creator posted a teaser video of Google Pixel 2, indicating that the full concept was in the works. Now they have posted the entire video, and it looks absolutely incredible. Concept Creator has transformed the phone into a futuristic-looking device. Only time will tell if Google takes some inspiration from
First, the render sports a dual camera system not only on the back panel but also on the front for better selfies. The dual camera setup is expected from a high-end smartphone. If it turns out to be true, Google Pixel 2 could be the first premium phone to have dual cameras on the front. According to the concept, the Pixel 2 features two 12MP camera lenses with a f/1.7 aperture on the back. The camera is optimized for low-light photography. You can also see a fingerprint sensor on the back, right above Google’s logo.
The video also suggests that the Google Pixel 2 would feature an edge-to-edge OLED display similar to Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S8. The last year’s Pixel phones were dull and conventional in terms of design. The curved OLED display, which has been a trend this year, will give the Pixel 2 a premium feel and help it stay relevant in the fiercely competitive market.
Pixel 2 features and specs
It its being speculated that Google Pixel 2 will sport a 5.6-inch Quad HD AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 18:9, bigger than the standard 16:9 ratio. It is said to come with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5, which can withstand a 1.6-meter drop on a rough surface at least 80% of the time. According to the concept, the phone will pack 6GB RAM and 32GB/128GB of internal storage, which users can expand further via a microSD card slot.
To be realistic, Google Pixel 2 may not need 6GB RAM. The device will run Android O, which will have many performance and efficiency-related stuff, reducing the requirement for a huge RAM. Rumours have it that the device will be powered by Qualcomm’s 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor with Adreno 540 graphics processor. Snapdragon 835 is already used in Samsung’s Galaxy S8, and is expected to run most of the high end Android phones coming in the future..
There’s also wireless charging and fast charging as features to be out for Pixel 2. It also sports a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The device is also expected to offer waterproofing capabilities. Last year’s Pixel lacked water-resistance, probably because Google had run out of time to implement the feature. But Google Pixel 2 is likely to have IP68 waterproof rating.
The pricing will be around 60000 INR.
