Google is planning to release complete details on the next Pixel phones: the Pixel 2 & and Pixel XL. The event will be held on October 4, 2017.
Droid Life has issued today new photos of the bigger, LG-made smartphone as the date moves closer. The Pixel 2 would come in 2 color choices at launch – there is a new black/white combo that has a black glass pane on the rear, and a black version which is resonant of the original.
It is surely a unique look. Also, the white unit’s power button has an orange color. That does not look to be true for the black model. With any luck, the front of the smartphone should be black in both cases to blend better with the all-screen display.
Pixel 2 Cost
According to Droid Life, the Pixel 2 XL would start around $849 for the 64 GB model and grow up to $949 for the 128 GB model. The second price point delivers the company right up against the $1,000 mark. There is a great possibility you will end up going over it after sales tax.
Google again would offer monthly financing to help increase that investment out over 2 years as it did for the first Pixel smartphone. Each month, the 64 GB Pixel 2 XL would be around $35. On the other hand, the 128 GB model would be around $39 per month.
It is anticipated that the Pixel 2 XL would have a 6-inches OLED screen. It is similar to the V30 smartphone of LG. For its processor, it would feature the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835. It is also allegedly gaining new squeeze gestures the same to the HTC U11.
For those who do not know, HTC is producing the regular Pixel 2. However, both devices are reported to have the gesture feature. The smaller Pixel 2 would stick much closer to the overall design of the original.
It is also expected that the company would make Google Lens a huge focus of these smartphones to help separate them from the amazing lineup of 2017 smartphone competition. Google remained pretty quiet about its feature.
You could expect camera and photography performance to be the top-most priorities of Google as always. The Pixel remained the top of the pack for a whole year.
