Google is going to launch two smartphones in the same release- the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. Droid Life has gotten its hands on images of the Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Daydream View, Home Mini, and Pixelbook. However, the rumours suggest that the smartphones will be available on through the Verizon stores or online through Google, just like the previous generation. The Pixel 2 will be priced similar to last year's Pixel, with the 64GB variant priced at $649 and the 128GB storage variant priced at $749.
I actually love the look of this new device, if these are accurate leaks, and will look forward to checking it out in person.
When is the Google Pixel 2 launch?
The search engine giant has created a landing page for Google Pixel 2. Moreover, the phones will also feature always-on display and squeezable frame.
That's for the 128GB storage model, and there will also be 256GB ($1,399/£1,399) and 512GB ($1,749/£1,749) options. And the optional Pixelbook Pen will set you back another $99. The Pixel 2 will come in three color options - Clearly White, Just Black and Kinda Blue. The speaker will come out in three color variants: Chalk, Charcoal and Coral. On the same day, an FCC filing revealed that LG would be the manufacturer of the larger XL phone, joining HTC who would be the manufacturer of the regular sized Pixel 2. This year, Google it seems is listening to a customer pain point and giving consumers more storage this time around for the same $650 starting cost. If you wish to get the 128GB variant, you will need to shell out $39.54 every month for a period of 24 months. A couple of months ago, it revealed a Google Glass 2, which was designed for industrial uses, it wouldn't be a shock to see more of this or a slightly more consumed focussed version of the product. The tech site claims that Google is gearing up to launch a premium, top-end Chromebook, called "Pixelbook", which could compete with Apple's iPad Pro.
Finally coming to the small-sized smart speaker from Google, Google Home Mini has also been leaked in renders as well. If the smartphone business news comes out to be true, this will be Google's second smartphone business acquisition after Motorola.
