Google Pixel is finally ready to have a successor and Google Pixel 2 will be the one to continue its legacy. While there are many rumors, including those of two devices with two different displays (4.97-inch 1080p display and a 5.99-inch 1440p LG OLED display) and the removal of the headphone jack, the officials refused to confirm them. However, one year after the launch of the first Google Pixel, the Federal Communications Commission revealed new information surrounding the upcoming device, and we are here to share the details with you.
After the FCC fling we can now admit that HTC will most certainly have a say in designing the product, maybe even more than we expected it before. The most prominent feature is the presence of squeezable sides, clearly inspired by the HTC U11. They can be used in order to perform different functions under the name “Active Edge” and Google Assistant will be automatically launched. Despite borrowing many HTC characteristics, Google Pixel 2 also stays true to its roots: the screenshots revealed that the smartphone will feature the navigation bar from the original Google Pixel.
The future for Android
Another notable detail is the OS of Pixel 2. In various screenshots the handset was running Android 8.0.1. While Google hasn’t released it yet and users are still awaiting Android 8.0, this also serves as proof that the upcoming phone launch will probably be accompanied by an updated version of the Android.
Google Pixel 2 is still being enhanced and Google and HTC will most likely continue to improve every little aspect and prepare many other surprises for the future launch. The Federal Communications Commission is expected to reveal more details in the future and we are curious to see what’s next.
