The Google devices have also been codenamed as ‘Taimen’ for Pixel 2 XL and ‘Walleye’ for Pixel 2.
Last year, Google and HTC together worked to make the Pixel and Pixel XL. And recently, Google bought the R&D team of HTC, working on the Google Pixel and Pixel XL.
And this year Google has joined hands with LG to build the upcoming devices- Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Google and LG have already worked together on the Nexus series of smartphones.
Let’s take a closer look at the specs of Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL-
Design & Display:
The Google Pixel 2 XL will flaunt a screen to body ration with no bezel while the Pixel 2 will most probably sport its predecessors' design. Till now much is not known about the Pixel 2.
Both the Google devices are certainly going to have some amazing design which will make heads go turn around. Also, the upcoming smartphone will be water and dirt proof. It is also said that the Pixel devices are going to render a pair of front-firing stereo speakers.
The Pixel 2 will sport a 5-inches screen with 1080 pixels whereas the Pixel 2 XL will have a 6-inches display with 1440 pixels. Both the Pixel devices are going to adorn an OLED display.
Last time, Samsung supplied the OLED displays to the Pixel device, but this time Google partnered LG for the OLED display.
It is said that Google paid a huge sum of around $880 million to LG for the OLED displays.
Processor and OS:
The elder sibling that is the Google Pixel 2 XL is going to be powered by the massive Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with a 4GB RAM. The powerful specs ensure a blazing speed and heavy multi-tasking.
The Pixel 2 XL will be available in two storage variants that is 64GB and 128GB.
As per some rumors, the Pixels could get the ultra-powerful Snapdragon 836 chipset. However, it is not yet official so chances are bleak.
There is no doubt in that that the Pixel handsets will be operating on the latest and exclusive Android 8.0 Oreo.
The higher version that is the Pixel 2 XL, ‘Taimen’ is going to feature a 12MP primary camera and the secondary camera is going to house a 7MP snapper.
Considering the high-end specs of the Pixel handsets, we were expecting much more in this aspect. The company could have featured a dual camera setup, which is the latest trend.
