By this, it is safe to assume that Google will be following Samsung’s footsteps as even the former did the same with its recently-launched Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones. Apart from this, the upcoming Pixel smartphones are even expected to pack a larger screen this time. The upcoming smartphones will probably feature either a 5-inch or 6-inch display coupled with an OLED display technology. This is further going to be accompanied with a screen resolution of 1,312 x 2,560 pixels and an aspect ratio of 17: 5: 9.

Powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835

Software: Google, like most of its other rivals, is expected to pack up its upcoming Pixel smartphones with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip. This will put the device in direct competition with other flagship smartphones in the market including Samsung and Nokia along with their Galaxy S8, Note 8 and 9 smartphones respectively.
