Hardware characteristics, functionality and sound
Last year Pixel worked on the flagship processor Snapdragon 821, this year the processor will again be the most modern. At the moment it’s Snapdragon 835, the amount of RAM remains the same – 4 GB. Information from the International Business Times reports that Google will use the updated version of this processor, as in the past year. New Pixel can be the first smartphones on this processor, which will be called Snapdragon 836. It will increase productivity and energy efficiency a little.
The standard version of Pixel 2 will have 64 GB of flash memory, although it is not known whether this will be the minimum value. Last year, the basic version was 32 GB.
Music lovers will be disappointed when they learn that there will not be a headphone jack in new smartphones. Instead, they will have to be content with stereo speakers. Three-dimensional images confirm this information. Google is working on fixing the Bluetooth connection problem that exists on current models. This was reported by the company’s engineers.
Source also claims that the smartphone can be clicked on, like on HTC U11, to launch Android Assistant and other applications. The Google Pixel 2 Release Date could be the first week of October.
Ironically, Google did not include the IP68 standard in the original Pixel devices, but there is a hope that this defect will now be eliminated. However, even earlier it was reported that this will happen only next year.
