Pixel 2 Launching Oct 19th, Pixel 2 XL on Nov 15th

03 Octobre 2017

Just two days away from the official launch of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, we get fresh photos of both devices from popular leaker, Evan Blass.

While Chromebooks typically run nearly entirely on web-based applications, the Pixelbook could be different.The highest-end version of Google's notebook is expected to sport a 512GB hard drive (for a whopping $1,749), suggesting that the Pixelbook could launch with a new hybrid software that blends together Chrome OS and Android for more robust app functionality.

What are you most looking forward to from Google's event? However, in the meanwhile, these are the devices and the appliances that we feel that will be launched in the upcoming event held by Google. New renders today show off the design of the Pixel 2 XL, confirming the presence of dual stereo speakers as we previously reported.

We've heard that the Pixel XL 2 will also have squeezable sides, but aren't sure how likely this is, with the phone being manufactured by LG rather than HTC. The Pixel 2 XL, on the other hand, will be $849/$949 United States dollars ($1o69/$1187 CAD).

The phones will run on latest Android Oreo and will also have Active Edge feature which will allow a user to squeeze the phones to activate a pre-set function. Reports hint at thick bezles on top and bottom, and absence of dual camera setup. This portrait mode has found its way in many major devices including the Note 8, OnePlus 5 and iPhone devices.

If such a program is being prepared, we're likely going to hear about it later this week. It follows the near bezel-less design made popular by the S8 and adopted by iPhone X, which will be released in November. Google is expected to unveil a new mini version of the home assistant, created to compete with Amazons more affordable Echo Dot. I'm most interested about this device just because I really want to see how they convince people to buy a $1000+ Chromebook. Also possibilities of a feature close to Apple's face id and Samsungs Iris Scanner.

Google has said that it expects to have 11 smartphones compatible with it Daydream VR headset by the end of 2017. The Pixel 2 and 2 XL smartphones will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor.

Made for Google could apply to cases, battery packs, docks, etc.

Google is signaling like competing with Apple and Samsung. At the back there is a single rear camera on top left corner and a fingerprint centre at the centre. There's a chance that the colors and manners of the Google search bar could be altered. For an instant, it has been two years now that Google has overhauled its streaming Chromecast stick, and not counting the adjunct update that was the Chromecast Ultra.

The report also drops the dime on potential release dates. You can register here to know more. Will you be willing to drop the money on a pair of wireless earbuds with Google Assistant built in?
