The Google Pixel could be touted as one of the best smartphones released previous year. Presumably, a careless search giant employee left his testing unit visible to nearby compatible gadgets while preparing its installation or performing some last-minute software inspections. There are photos of the Pixel XL 2 on the advertisement which lends us to believe that the offer will be extended to the Pixel XL 2 when that launches as well.
Here's what else we're expecting from tonight's Google event. Here are the six products that Google is likely to launch today. The company has rolled up its sleeves for a major push in the hardware business. The leaked list also tip that the Pixel 2 XL will sport an aluminium build and packs 3520mAh battery.
It says the Pixel 2 XL will have a 6-inch 1,440 x 2,880 P-OLED screen with a pixel density of 538 pixels per inch and that it will be protected by Gorilla Glass 5. The interesting bit about the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL cameras could be that they may lack the dual-lens trick, but if original Pixel is any indication the new Google phones too may come with the best camera in a smartphone. If you've been following tech news, then you already know that most of Google's new gadgets were featured in an increasing number of leaks.
So, look for two new smartphones, an update to Android 8.0 Oreo, a new Google Home Mini, Daydream View VR experiences and more. The pre-order listing on Walmart was taken offline quickly, but 9to5Google was able to download the images of both devices.
Pixel 2 - $649 for the 64GB and $749 for the 128GB version. If history wants to also repeat itself, the Pixel 2 may start shipping on or around October 19 or 20, but we'll know for sure on October 4. The Mi Mix 2 will launch in India on 10th October. However, the Pixel 2 XL won't hit the store shelves until November 15. Here is what we can expect from Google's flagship smartphones- Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.
Another interesting tidbit that was found in the Pixelbook listing is another product that's simply known as "Google Clips".
Leaked images show the Pixelbook will come with a flip around screen display for full tablet conversion. The expected pricing is $1,199, $1,399, and $1,749 for the 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB of storage variants respectively. The other memory option, sadly, gets no boost, and the top variant again comes at 128GB.
