Google’s older model of Pixel phone was first introduced last year. Now, with the reports of Google releasing the new Pixel phone, a lot of analysts speculate that it will be released this year in October.
The Pixel 2 will surely be more powerful than its successor. However, it is also speculated to be more expensive.
Similarities between Pixel 2 and Galaxy S8
Currently, there are many leaked information about Google Pixel 2 scattered on the internet. The new model appears to feature world-class designs. And it is also speculated that there are similarities between Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus and Pixel 2.
In connection to that, Google Pixel 2 appears to have the same processor as Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 plus. According to the leaked info on Weibo, Samsung’s famous curved display feature is also speculated to feature in Pixel 2.
It is also rumored that Google Pixel 2 will have an 8-MP front camera and 16-MP dual rear Camera. The camera will also carry high-tech designs that will enhance low-light photography. The company is working on the software and hardware of the camera. This is to ensure that the images come out with high-quality. Another spec revealed in the leaked information is Google Pixel 2 will have a 5.5-inch Quad HD display with 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution.
Android 8.0 “Oreo” to Feature on Pixel 2
Android (version 8.0) is already confirmed to be launched this year. Apparently, Android “O” will be another branding tie-in, just like the Android version “Kit-Kat”. According to rumors, the newest version will be named after the famous layered cookie. The name will be Android “Oreo”. It is guaranteed that the older version of Google Pixel and Pixel XL will be the first devices to be updated straight from the servers of Google. This will happen when they release the latest version. On the other hand, the company will most likely launch the software together with their new range of Pixel phones.
As of now, there is no information about the features of Android “O”. However, the Oreo name is the strongest case. This is after Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google’s senior vice president of Android, Google Play and Chrome OS, tweeted a gif of an Oreo-based cake on his official account. Unfortunately, it is not a 100% confirmation. Lockheimer could just be messing with the rumors and speculations.
