Google’s new Pixel for 2017 could feature an always-on display and a squeezable frame – and that’s just the beginning. Read the latest rumours on the Pixel 2 new features, specs, price and UK launch date.
As we get ever closer to the release date of the Pixel 2, leaked information tells us more about what to expect. The latest tidbits suggest the new Pixel for 2017 could feature an always-on display and a squeezable frame (like the HTC U11), but there’s so much more to look forward to, including the brand-new Android O operating system.
A new concept video of the Pixel 2 XL has been released, whetting our appetites for what’s to come later this year. But has it accidentally just given away the release date too?
Wednesday 17 October, which is shown on the display in the video, could well be the release date of the new Pixels. Or it could be no more than a guess.
We now have a public beta of Android O, so all we need is some new Google phones on which to showcase it. Codenamed ‘Walleye’ and ‘Taimen’ respectively (‘Muskie’ is thought to have been dropped), the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL2 are said to offer some interesting specifications.
Both are thought to be Snapdragon 835-powered smartphones with 18:9 curved screens. The Pixel 2 could look something like this (via uSwitch):
A more recent render of the Pixel XL 2 comes from Android Police, which speaks of a squeezable frame like that seen on the HTC U11, and adding weight to the theory the phone will be manufactured by HTC.
