Google Pixel 2: Unveiled Specs and features

Google is not the first or the second year deals with the release of its smartphones, but perhaps for the first time decided to take this process under greater than ever, control. Where are such conclusions from?

Firstly, the new models came out with a completely new name – Google Pixel. Nexus line, established back in 2010, it would continue to develop, and now, but there was one problem with it. From year to year, “Nexus” produced by different manufacturers. At the time, it was HTC, Samsung, LG, Huawei, Motorola, and so it turned out that each brand brings to the series some zest to it on my own. More precisely, since it was declared on the paper, in fact the same almost every new Google Nexus is a copy of a particular smartphone from a specific manufacturer. Here’s how it looked in the early years:

Model Nexus 6 situation began to change, and we can say that “NEXUS” started to get his own face and personality. Google Nexus 6, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P were not a copy of certain smartphones from manufacturers. However, the very vendor lock still persists, and if now you try to search, for example, Google Nexus 6P or Nexus 6, you’ll find Huawei Nexus 6P and smartphones Motorola Nexus 6. It would seem that nothing terrible, but the original idea of “google” for these years for a long time been transformed, and now smartphone from Google should be just a smartphone from Google, which brand it produces – a completely internal history. Therefore, the rejection of the name «Nexus» and selecting another, «Pixel» – the correct and logical decision.

Second, the company produces two devices with typical parameters, characterized, by and large, only a diagonal screens and some small things. All of the platforms, memory, cameras and ending with design for Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL exactly the same. Now, the launch of successor in this series is being planned by the brand: Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.  Choice comes down to the size of the display and the size of the smartphone, respectively. Among the devices found: Walleye, Muskie and Taimen. These codenames hiding Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL and XXL. If the received information is confirmed, this year we will see Google PHABLET with wide screen display.

Take a look at Google second produced model in the history of “pixels” i.e. Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL.

Upcoming Smartphones Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL manufactured by HTC, actually, at this mention of the Taiwanese brand will end. To draw parallels with the HTC 10 here does not work, as I said above, Pixel is not something similar to the “top ten”, it is a completely different device.
