The Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL 2 will release in just below every week’s time. This 12 months’s telephones will probably be constructed via HTC and LG, respectively, and are tipped to be lovely sizeable updates on what got here earlier than.
As a present Pixel XL consumer, I'm very all for what Google involves the desk inside of 2017. Early experiences recommended the handsets may well be just a little, umm… uninteresting, with few adjustments to the entire design of the handsets.
However this isn’t 100% simply but; the rumors that driven this would smartly were in keeping with false rumors. Nonetheless, anyone has now controlled to get their fingers on an ACTUAL Google 2 XL handset.
The news comes via Android Police’s new source, an individual that it appears performed with a Verizon Pixel 2 handset. The source then defined the next issues in regards to the handset, regardless that AP insists that it can not vouch for the authenticity of this source (it appears they’re a brand new one).
So what did this thriller particular person say in regards to the Pixel 2? I’ve bullet-pointed the important thing, new options beneath on your viewing excitement. Revel in:
- Google Pixel 2 (the smaller one) will price much less and no longer be as excellent as the bigger phone.
- Neither phone will function a dual-lens digital camera.
- Pixel Launcher has had a HUGE redesign – new house web page and the quest bar is now situated underneath the dock.
- Squeeze for Google Assistant even if offline. Yep, that’s proper – it is possible for you to to squeeze the Pixel 2 XL to turn on Assistant, similar to the rumors stated you might be capable to do.
Finally, the Google Pixel 2 will it appears pay attention out for tune ALL THE TIME, so when it hears a tune it'll show the album art work at the lock display screen. This sounds each cool and infinitely creepy.
Why creepy? Easy: Google is an enormous corporate and I don’t in point of fact like the theory of one in all its telephones blatantly listening and recording the entirety I do, say, or pay attention to.
That’s simply bizarre.
The Google Pixel 2 handsets will release on October 4.
