    On the design aspect, the Pixel features a metal design and glass backs but a rather but the Pixel 2 has a more grippy metal surface.

    And like the HTC’s U11, both of the Pixels come with Active Edge which means that which means you can squeeze their sides to trigger certain actions.

    They also come with stereo speakers which are more awesome than the last year’s single speaker. The Pixel 2 comes with a 5-inch, 1920 x 1080 AMOLED, 95 percent DCI-P3 coverage, 100,000:1 contrast ratio

    Am not a bad news announcer but I would like you to know that we have lost the Headphone Jack for the new Google Phones! And well, thanks to Google Pixels Buds, it is not fully wireless.

    And on the camera aspect, they each have front-facing stereo speakers and OLED displays, though the smaller Pixel has a 1080p resolution (for a density of 441 PPI) and the larger version has a 2880 x 1440 resolution (for an even denser 538 PPI).

    Both phones have a 12.2-megapixel rear camera with an f/1.8 aperture and optical image stabilization — an improvement over last year’s f/2.0 lens and electronic image stabilization.

    And on the front-facing camera, we have an 8-megapixel front-facing camera for taking some cool selfies.

    Google “dual-pixel sensor,” which means that the pixels are a little bit smaller this year (1.4μm instead of last year’s 1.55μm).

    Article Before the Launch

    On a very special day in my life, Google is planning on launching another Pixel Smartphone powered by Android OS that Steve Jobs of Apple plans on rendering lifeless even to their death.

    Well, there is some history concerning Jobs and Android but the recently launched iPhone series with the A11 Chip, virtually have everything stocked in!

    If you could recall, the Pixel and Pixel XL, arrived on the 4th of October 2016, which is, of course, the first phones to be officially branded as out-and-out Google phones.

    And a year later, on the 4th of October 2017, Google is rumored to launch the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL Smartphones at the event. Can’t wait for the event! (Probably, two events would be live that day)

    The last year Pixel was made by HTC Phones and the 2017 Pixels are rumored to be produced by LG and when you hear LG, it is LG’s!

    LG is making the Pixel 2 XL, a handset that’s supposed to deliver the all-screen smartphone experience you may be expecting from a 2017 Pixel creation.

    On the HTC Pixel 2, we are looking at Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chip that powers most of this year’s high-end Android handset. It’ll also ship with HTC’s Edge Sense feature that turns the edges of the phone into pressure-sensitive buttons.

    Meanwhile, Google has sent out official press invites for its event, which will begin at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET in San Francisco on October 4th.
