If upcoming handsets like the iPhone 8 are getting their share of leaks and rumors, why not the Google Pixel 2 as well?
The Google Pixel and Pixel XL were only released in October last year but there are now rumors being floated about the new device especially with Google I/O 2017 already fast approaching.
The developer version of the new Android build could be announced in the event and the Pixel is, of course, expected to follow thereafter since it will likely serve as the launching platform to the Android 8.0 stable version also being called at this point as Android O.
It is important to note that phones are not magically produced overnight. Suppliers have to be contacted, materials have to be procured and, in Google's case, the process could become more complicated with the way it outsources its devices from third-party OEMs such as in the case of the Nexus and, some say, the Pixel handsets themselves despite their Made by Google tag.
So along the way, documents found their way to us and you may be sure that we dutifully report the most notable of the lot.
For example, inside sources revealed that the next-generation Pixel devices will now get waterproofing feature. This bit came with the intel that Google wants to further improve on the camera module, indicating that the company is not willing to yield any quarter in the area where many thought it has beaten the competition.
According to 9to5Google, Pixel 2's camera is now getting tested using chipsets sourced from two suppliers. This is the part that is going to be bad news for fans. Such improvement will purportedly pad the device's price by much as $50.
Anticipating consumer dismay since the Pixel itself has already been criticized for its eye-watering price tag, Google is said to be developing a budget variant. There is still very little information about this device, only that it could be significantly cheaper than the Pixel 2 flagships and could be shipped to emerging markets.Read More...
