A few snippets of information have come in combination over the years which might point out an overly robust case for 2017's next-generation of Google Pixel handsets being waterproofed.
With the release of the Pixel and Pixel XL in past due 2016, WIRED reporter Kelsey McClellean said that he'd spoken to Google body of workers simply ahead of the release the place it used to be claimed the 2 telephones have been meant to be waterproofed, however the construction group could not make it occur inside the time limit.
The studies on the time stated that the Pixel collection were in construction for some really extensive duration, however for no matter explanation why the entire venture used to be despatched again to the drafting board in past due 2015, giving the group 9 months to start out over from scratch. Many of the firstly deliberate options have been retained, however of the small handful that have been dropped because of time constraints, waterproofing used to be unfortunately one.
Now despite the fact that, as of January 26, 9To5Google's Stephen Corridor has issued a Tweet revealing that he too spoke to Google other people in October 2016 who showed "waterproofing surely coming with subsequent Pixel tool."
With two separate and eligible resources claiming the similar factor, this turns out lovely more likely to us. Waterproofing used to be just about the one factor lacking from the Google Pixel from our viewpoint, however this can be a function now provide at the two marketplace leaders - each Samsung and Apple's flagships, so there is each and every explanation why for competition to apply go well with.
In fact, quite talking, the Google Pixel collection continues to be lovely recent out the gate, so we think we almost certainly have a just right lengthy whilst ahead of a suite of successor fashions will seem. Google has now set a precedent for a product cycle that would see new Pixel fashions launching slightly past due within the yr, and once more we are more than likely taking a look at October/November for the following set of Pixel telephones. Whether or not they are referred to as the Pixel 2, or just Pixel with the yr quantity 2017, is still noticed.
