pixel 2 and pixel 2 XL are the product expected to be unveiled today at the event held by Google.
This phones is going to be iteration of the first one that was released a year ago,form what we are meant to understand the Google Home mini smart speaker is expected to look similar to the Amazon’s shrunk- down Echo Dot smart speaker,It is going to be squeezing the voice-control features into a smaller package but it will require a separate speaker for high-quality music playback.
Form what am seeing it looks as if this phones are way by which this company is doubling it’s efforts in-other to compete directly with Apple in the smartphone hardware.In addition,they will continue to give Google the opportunity to showcase the extent of it’s software powers when freed from the requirement to work closely with other Android product manufacturers.This are the Google pixel 2 and pixel 2XL
Two of the phone will be released,but the smaller will be made by the smartphone manufacturer HTC a company that was just acquired recently by Google.The pixel 2,is going to feature a design reminiscent of the new iPhone 8 crossed with its predecessor:when it comes to the front of the phone there are sizeable bezels at the top and bottom,it will carry a single camera at the back.this phone is expected to cost around £600.
Now the pixel 2 Xl,is expected to be a much more carburncopy of the pixel 2.But is going to be made by LG,it will feature a bezel-free screen in the front,pixel 2 Xl will look more likely to the Apple’s top-tier iPhone X but is going to cost around £800.
The pixel 2Xl is not just going to take it’s lead from iPhone X on screen size alone,like Apple’s device,it’s expected to arrive a little bit later than it’s smaller sibling.Ordering of the pixel 2 is going to be open as soon as this week,but the pixel Xl will follow up in a month later.
The delay is going to enable Google build up a large quantity for supply,ameliorating some if the problem that was face in the first pixel phones,which was heavily back-ordered for their entire lifespan.
The two phones are expected to have qualcomm’s snapdragon 835 processor,4GB of memory and either 64 or 128GB of storage.this pixels are expected to come with pressure – sensitive sides similar to that of the HTC,with it’s U11.
Both phones will follow the prevailing trend in smartphone designs and will drop a separate headphone socket,not that long that Google used its first pixel (which dose not contain headphone)in other to mock Apple for taking the lead.this company will now follow other competitors in making the new pixel waterproof.
The software part,we are made to understand that it’s going to be entirely redesigned launcher,that will focus on the smart content area close tobthe top of the screen and moving the Google bar down to the bottom of the phone.in addition the pixel 2 may have a new portrait mode”,That is similar to the launcher in the iPhone 7 plus,that will be capable of producinv high depth-of-field images with just a single camera using advanced algorithmic editing.
Secondly the new Google Home mini is going to look like a small,fabric-covered pebble and with a price tag of $49 ( should be around £40).an is likely going to be released anytime soon,The prospect of Google Home Max a high-quality smart speaker which is going to compete with audio-focused rivals such as Apple’s Homepod.
Google-watchers are expecting am update to the company’s high quality online only laptop,the chromebook pixel ( which should include a rebrand to “pixelbook”),a new daydream VR headset and should on some fancy new USB-c and Bluetooth headphones to use in making up for the lack of headsocket on the pixel.
