We were expecting it and how this day and finally we finally saw after a storm of rumors and leaks and the new Pixel 2. Google here seems to confirm the rumors that the device has the typical classic image that we saw in last year’s phone , ie there is no bezel-less design. Unlike the premium model of the company, the brand-new Pixel 2 XL, in the smallest model we have large bezels housing the speakers for even better sound quality. Inside, we see the Snapdragon 835, a major upgrade compared to Snapdragon 821 of the previous generation.
From the back of the device, we see the second lens missing. There is a main 12MP camera with OIS and 1 / 2.6 “sensor. Let’s not forget to say that the company a few minutes ago when it showed the new Pixel 2 talked about adding electronic stabilization in order to offer all users of its devices better stability during video shooting. Of course, there is no “Portrait Mode”.
On the screen we have no major changes compared always with Pixel 1 st generation, we remain in 5-inch AMOLED panel with resolution 1080p.
It has gone and from here the 3.5mm headphone port, all connected wirelessly.
Both Pixels have an item borrowed from the HTC U11, their sides perceive the different pressure levels and activate various functions. One of these is the opening of Google Assistant. It comes with pure Android Oreo features such as notification dots and picture-in-picture mode, but also a completely new launcher that has been redesigned and has many visual changes.
From Oct. 19, Pixel 2 will be commercially available in the US at $ 650 for the 64GB version, while the 128GB will be released at $ 750.
