Google Pixel 2, Pixel XL 2 might not have flagship features

Google Pixel 2, Pixel XL 2 might not have flagship features

Google Pixel had the best camera at launch, but a dual-camera system appears to be a trend to stay close to other rivals in the market. Fans have been expecting Google to make wider changes to the Pixel 2 in response to criticism of the debut phone. We learned there would be major changes made to the design of the Pixel 2 XL compared to past year, but that we shouldn't expect many changes when it came to the smaller version. However, it still does not confirm whether the company will nix the headphone jack or not.

The upcoming Google Pixel 2 was recreated in a couple of high-resolution renders earlier this week. Google's upcoming phones are said to have a squeezable frame similar to HTC's Edge Sense technology. According to DxOMark, the Pixel had the highest score for any smartphone camera until the arrival of HTC U11.

Today, GSMArena published two new photos of the Pixel 2, sent to them by a tipster. That includes a real-life image of the smaller phone that leaked just last week. On Pixel 2, it covers only about 20%.

The pricing and features of a possible new Pixel phone haven't been disclosed yet. It turned out this information was indeed right when the live photograph of the Pixel 2 made headlines late last week. The base-level model with a 5-inch screen and 32GB of storage will now set you back $524, rather than $649. It's flat $200 off its regular price of $769.

Just consider how long it's taken the original Pixel and Pixel XL to be marked down by more than $100 each, no strings attached, no special requirements, no catches and no 24-hour deadlines. The company has further sweetened the deal by offering a free Google Daydream View VR headset to buyers.
