In late summer or early autumn of this year, Google will introduce its new smartphones Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Today, the Internet has revealed new data on the characteristics of these long-awaited vehicles, which speak about two models.
Earlier it was reported that Google prepares three “pixel” smartphones of the second generation at once, but in the end, it was decided to abandon the medium size device, and now the whole world expects only Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, code-named Walleye and Taimen, respectively. Rumors started coming on Google Pixel 3 with the same two versions: Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
The older model is said to be able to boast a 5.9-inch screen with an OLED matrix and a Quad HD or 2K resolution, so it will be larger than its predecessor. Together with the screen, the mobile phone will receive 6 GB of RAM, the “bare” Android 9, Qualcomm 845 processor and built-in 128 GB memory in the basic version. Also mentioned are the glass case and the headphone input.
Who will manufacture Google Pixel 3?
It’s still too early to guess who will be honored to carry Google Pixel 3 smartphones for Google, we doubt that even Google Corporation now knows who it will be. Most likely, the company itself is in the meditations and agonies of choice. For the entire existence of the Nexus program, we have seen gadgets from LG, HTC, Huawei, Samsung and Motorola. The creator of a new Google phone can be any of these partners, but equally it can be a completely new OEM manufacturer, maybe the Chinese Xiaomi?
What hardware platform and cameras will it have?
Most sources claim that the new Pixel 3 will get two cardinal improvements, compared to the previous version: it will be waterproof, and it will have an improved camera. The current Pixel and Pixel XL have a degree of protection IP58, which means that they are protected from water (spray) and dust, but are not insured against immersion in water. The 2018 model should receive full protection of the case and contacts, as in the iPhone 8 and absolutely not afraid of any contact with water.
The younger Pixel 3 is rumored to be a 4.7-inch smartphone with large screen frames and a resolution of only Full HD. Input under the headphones will not, but install a pair of front speakers. In addition, Pixel 3 expects 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal memory and, of course, the top-end processor Qualcomm 845. The main competitors of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be Samsung S9 + and Note 9, and with them – Xiaomi Mi 7 Plus and even frameless Apple iPhone 9.
