The Mountain View firm took advantage of its annual conference to present the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones. In particular, Nexus is set aside for high-end terminals with the ambition to reach a wider audience and to walk on the backdrop of the genre’s tenors (Samsung and Apple in the lead). To do this, Google places photography, of course, among the key elements of its communication strategy.
Following are the few features of Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL:
Astonishing, when the Pixel was launched, Google had given way to water resistance (IP68 standard). Some sources indicate that this gap should be filled with the next terminal. If for 9to5Google, this feature is “in the cartons” others argue that it has priority. Like the LG G6, the Pixel 2 should be water resistant.
If there is one thing we can be certain about Google Pixel 2, it’s because it will have a better photo sensor. According to source, the firm will not play the megapixel race with this model but will compensate by “ancillary features”. The site ensures that the development of the APN has been a priority topics in the development of the Pixel 2. Another source further advances that Google should prefer a device with a single sensor rather than two as the iPhone 7 Plus, the OnePlus 5 or the LG G6.
The camera of Pixel 2 will be, in fact, more powerful than that of its predecessor, but it will be thanks to the software Android 8.0.
The premium smartphones do not tend to see their prices fall and the Pixel 2 will surely not be the one that will stop this evolution. For source, it should be “at least $ 50 more expensive than the current model”. It will therefore cost around 700 $ for the model of 5 inches and 800 $ for the XL.
A name and date
Following the logic of Google, the next models – known as Walleye and Taimen models – should be called Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, as we already do. However, the firm has already made mistakes in its logic, calling in particular the successor of the Nexus One, Nexus S.
Will Google do better than Samsung?
Will the Pixel 2 succeed in doing better than the Galaxy S8? This is the question that comes up every year while the South Korean has managed to make us forget the debacle of the Galaxy Note 7. This was no small matter. Google will also need to better manage the amount of terminals available at launch to avoid the usual stock-outs on its Play Store. Samsung also experienced these small inconveniences for its Galaxy S8 +.
On the basis of recent rumors, Google Pixel 2 release date can exactly be 5th October.
