Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL: here are some detailed specifications just a few days before the official launch of the new smartphones
Only a few days away from the official launch of the new smartphonesGoogle Pixel 2 is Pixel 2 XL, but already some detailed specifications appear, thanks to a recent leak, a leak as they say in jargon. Here are the details of the two new models.
Google Pixel 2 XL
The Google Pixel 2 XL device blurs a QHD curved screen and will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, as well as a 64 or 128 GB data memory. Although it is not clear what the precise size of the screen may be, it would seem that the screen-body ratio is between 80 and 85% which suggests that it may be a thin shell similar to the Galaxy Note 8. Previous hypotheses had led to the absence of Dual stereo speakers, but in the presence of an input for headphone jacks, while a current source basically claims the opposite. There are also rumors about the fact that only for some markets USB-C headphones are available directly in the packaged market, but, at the moment, there is no certain information about these last hypotheses.
The Pixel XL, which last year had one of the best photographic smartphone mechanics on the market, this year too, with model 2, it should be equipped with a quality camera. One source claims that both the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL will be equipped with two Pixel cameras with OIS, one rear and one front.
It seems that the Pixel 2 XL has the technology Wide Color Gamut and Google Imaging Chip, in addition to optical stabilization. Not clear if the OIS is present in both or just one of the sensors.
Google Pixel 2 XL technical specifications
The Google Pixel 2 XL will present specifications absolutely worthy of a flagship model of 2017. Among other things, it could also have one E-SIM slot, in order to be able to connect to different networks, without the need to replace the SIM card, as for the Apple Watch Serie 3. It will also be present, most likely, the second generation Google digital reader. IP67 resistance to dust and water, together with Gorilla Glass 5, should offer good durability for these devices. The smartphone should be equipped with a 3,520 mAh battery, quite powerful in reference to many other devices presented this year so far.
The leak also refers to the presence of functionality Active Edge to allow launching the Google assistant or interact with calls by tightening the edges.
Last week Google formalized the acquisition of part of HTC's research and development team that worked on the Pixels and it seems that the result of this acquisition can be shown next week.
Google Pixel 2
The features and specifications of the Pixel 2 model should be almost identical to those of the Pixel 2 XL, except for some important differences.
The Google Pixel 2 could maintain a design very similar to that of last year, but the difference here would be in the remove the headphone jack and add the two stereo speakers in the shock, presumably, a little wider in this model.
Google Pixel 2, technical features
Other differences could include a FHD screen, instead of the curved QHD screen of the 2 XL and the possible absence of the new Wide Color Gamut technology, present, instead, in the larger model.
Due to the smaller screen and lower resolution, the battery capacity could be only 2,700 mAh, instead of the 3,530 mAh of the Pixel 2 XL model.
An interesting aspect in relation to the services included, if you confirm the items on the subject, the forecast of unlimited space on the Google Cloud until 2023.
In a few days we will find out all the details and if expected will be rewarded with the supposed quality and in the meantime we can foretaste these excellent specifications mentioned, except for the potential absence of headphone input.
