As the smartphone race of 2017 enters its final legs, the final contender amongst the large name brands is preparing for the launch of its flagship device. With the market now saturated with phones like the Samsung Galaxy S8, Note 8, and quickly, iPhone X units, all eyes in the mobile industry are now pointed at Google and its upcoming flagship smartphones, the Google Pixel two and the Google Pixel 2 XL.
Google has accomplished a outstanding job maintaining all particulars about its flagship smartphone secret, to the point exactly where very little, apart from its launch date, has been announced. Over the past week, Google has revealed that it would be launching the Google Pixel 2 and the Google Pixel 2 XL on October four, in a special gathering that would begin at 9 a.m. PST, according to a Forbes report. Apart from the launch date, most of the devices’ internals and functions stay a mystery.
That is not to say that the Google Pixel two is shaping up to be a boring device, as the most persistent rumors about the upcoming flagships are pretty exciting. Release date-sensible, speculations are high that even though the device would be unveiled in early October, the smartphone would in fact go on sale and be delivered to buyers later for the duration of the month.
The pricing of the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel two XL have not been leaked as of but, even though expectations are high that the device would most probably be priced at a premium. The 1st-generation Pixel and Pixel XL carried lofty cost tags, therefore, there is a excellent likelihood that the Pixel two and Pixel two XL[two] would be priced similarly, or slightly higher, than their direct predecessors.

The appearance of the very first-generation Pixel and Pixel XL left significantly to be preferred, with their massive bezels and notably iPhone six-esque frame. With this in mind, rumors are higher that the Google Pixel two and Google Pixel 2 XL would be featuring a new design, possibly with smaller bezels and a redesigned rear panel.
The aspect ratio of the Google Pixel two and Google Pixel 2 XL has not been revealed by the search giant, but previous leaks have recommended that the smaller 1 of the two devices will function an 18:9 aspect ratio with 2,560 x 1,312 resolution[six], as stated in a TechRadar report. Such a configuration would make the Pixel 2 and Pixel two XL comparable in style with the most eye-catching handsets in the market place whilst producing the device tailor-match for the search giant’s Daydream VR platform.
Other attributes that are rumored for the Google Pixel two and Google Pixel 2 XL incorporate enhanced water resistance, but one more rear-facing fingerprint scanner, an industry-leading single-lens 12MP camera, a Snapdragon 835 SoC, and 4GB of RAM. Interestingly, these specs match the features of some of the most popular smartphones of the year so far, such as the Samsung Galaxy S8.
