Google Pixel has been released last year. The company is set to release the next version of the flagship device, the Pixel 2. The very first model has received mixed reviews. Pixel had failed to gain success in the market compared to other flagship smartphones. Pixel is reported to sport cutting-edge specs and feature and will compete with samsung galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8 and Apple iPhone 8.

Specs and features

It is rumored that there will be two versions of the upcoming flagship smartphone. The phones from Google will be called as Pixel Xl 2 and Pixel 2.

The devices may include a redesign thinner body in comparison to Pixel. The Pixel XL might have a 6-inch display compared to the current 5.5-inch display.

Although the smaller version, Pixel 2 might have a display size of 4.97 inches. It might also have narrow borders around its display. On the memory front, the phones might have 4GB RAM. Pixel XL 2 could sport an internal storage of 128 GB while the smaller one might have an internal memory of 64 GB. The phone will have the same Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset, the same processor which is observed in the latest One Plus 5 and certain models of Samsung Galaxy phones.

The design of the flagship

In terms design, Pixel 2 won't change much; since it may include the same glass and textured finish as compared to the original Pixel.

Regarding Camera, a report in 9to5Google states that Pixel 2 will have a better camera but not regarding Megapixels, in fact, Google might end up adding some extra features that could include new modes that allow for a much better low-light photography.

Google's flagship, Pixel 2 might have the squeeze feature, where you squeeze the sides of the phone to open an application of your choice.

The new Google Pixel 2 will have a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, which supposedly is placed right below the dual rear camera set up. Not only that, but it might also have some rear panel changes in comparison to Google Pixel. It is also featured to have a mono-tone rear panel, unlike the Google Pixel that has duo-tone glass and metal on the back.

The rumors have it all that Google might launch the phone, sometime in October 2017, which might prove to be a tough competition for Apple's products. Reports and news also suggest that the upcoming Google phones are aimed to target different markets. Speaking of the price, the Pixel XL could start with $769 and the Pixel 2 could start at $700.
