According to the source site, the Google Pixel 2 could know a new version in 2017.The site indicates that Google Pixel 2 could benefit from some new features such as waterproofing, a better photo sensor or better processor. The latter could be specially manufactured by Google itself and would therefore pass the services of Qualcomm.
Pixel 2 very quickly catches the network signal, quickly connects to the mobile Internet and confidently keeps the reception. The speaker is loud, the microphone does not rustle while talking on the street.
But with the sound is not all smooth. After the stereo speakers in last year’s Nexus 6P, it’s strange to see in Pixel 2 only one speaker, which is also very unsuccessfully located. In landscape orientation, the hand always lies on it. The volume of loudness is large, but it’s better not to rise above the middle – the quality falls dramatically.
The audio in the headphones is nothing special. And if you listen to the same headphones tracks on HTC 10 and Pixel, then the second one will lose with a crash in all respects. So fans of good sound and everyone who very often listens to music from the smartphone, I do not recommend this device.
However, Google could offer 2 versions of its smartphone, one at significantly lower price.
Information about the equipment is consistent with previous rumors and leaks: both devices will have almost the same filling, except the display and battery.
Google Pixel 2 XL older device equip 5.5-AMOLED-inch display with a resolution of 2560 × 1440 pixels and a protective coating Gorilla Glass 6. As the hardware bases used 4-core Snapdragon chipset 835 with a working frequency of 2.15 GHz and a graphics controller 530 Adreno. The amount of RAM is 4 GB, and a built – 32/128 GB expandable through microSD-cards up to 256GB.
On the rear panel is a fingerprint scanner and 12-megapixel main camera with f / 2.0 aperture and an optical stabilization system, and in front – an 8-megapixel front-end. The gadget functions under the control of the Android 8.0 software platform. The battery capacity is 3490 mAh, there is support for the fast charging function, due to which the device can be charged for seven hours of use in just 15 minutes.
The dimensions of the case are 154.7 x 75.7 x 8.6 mm, weight – 168 grams. A USB Type-C connector is provided. Photos and videos taken on both devices will be stored in Google Photos in full resolution.
The Pixel 2 smartphone will receive almost the same equipment, except for a 5-inch Full HD screen and a battery for 2770 mAh. Its dimensions are 143.8 x 69.5 mm, and weight – 143 grams.
If the price of the first Google Pixel was already very high at the time of its release, that of Google Pixel 2 should be revised upwards + $ 50 depending on the source).
