Google Pixel 2: Everything you need to know

Google Pixel 2: Everything you need to know527a0d37d60049cb525038b89b75326d-01

We’d hazard a guess that the Google Pixel 2 is coming this year, but the leaks haven’t started flowing yet. Here’s what we want to see in Google’s flagship, including specs, features, camera, Android 8 and more.

We’ll update this section as more leaks come out regarding the Pixel 2, so make sure to check back regularly

There’s also some predictable bits that have come out regarding the phone. 9to5Google claims it’ll have a better camera, a price bump and possibly a lower-priced version too.

Google Pixel 2 – specs

Snapdragon 835 CPU, 4GB RAM
5 and 5.7-inch screens, both 2560 x 1440
Quick Charge 4.0
Android 8
Water-resistant body

The Google Pixel 2 will be flagship device, and as such it’ll have pretty much all the top end specs available. We’d wager that there’ll be a Snapdragon 835 CPU – the same processor that’ll likely power the Samsung Galaxy S8, but not the LG G6 – and either 4GB or 6GB RAM. HTC has stuck with 4GB RAM for its U Ultra, so it’ll be interesting to see whether or not Samsung and LG jump to 6GB.

If Google does go with the 835, that means the Pixel 2 will be capable of Quick Charge 4.0. This is possibly the coolest feature of the new chip, as Qualcomm claims you’ll get five hours of juice from a five minute charge. Now that’s something we can get onboard with.

We might see a 4K display on the Pixel 2, especially if Google wants to push its Daydream VR platform forward, but no one has successfully managed to do this yet. The Note 7 was rumoured to pack this high-res panel and it didn’t, and it doesn’t look like the Galaxy S8 will either. Battery life, overheating and poor performance are all negatives of having even more pixels in a display, so we’d guess it’ll stay at quad-HD for the larger model and probably 1080p for the smaller. We’d like to see both gun for Quad HD, though.

Finally, you can bet that fiver in your pocket that the next Google phone will be the first to ship with Android 8.0. We’ve heard nothing about what that might include yet, but Android ‘O’ (Oreo? Orbit Gum? Oatmeal cookie? Opal Fruit?) will surely revolve heavily around the Google Assistant – and making it even smarter. We might see some AI elements too – as that’s all the rage – and hopefully an end to the increasingly defunct homescreen.
When does the Google Pixel 2 come out?

Google tends to release its flagship phone in the Autumn, shortly after Apple unveils the iPhone. We’d peg the Google Pixel 2 with an October/November launch, with pre-orders going live immediately following the announcement.
How much will the Google Pixel 2 cost?

Google Pixel: $599 (32GB) | $699 (128GB)

Google Pixel XL: $719 (32GB) | $819 (128GB)
