Google Pix­el 2 Launch on Octo­ber 4, 5 Things to Expect

Rahul Gupta

Google’s upcoming smartphones Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are just a day away from their official launch and the rumor mill is red-hot with some very credible information.


Google has worked hard to make these devices class-leading as always with a range of cutting-edge tech. Assimilating all the leaks and information regarding the Pixel 2 duo, we have compiled a list of probable features that the Pixel devices may offer.

So here are five things that every Google Pixel fan must expect from these upcoming phones.

1. Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Chipset

Google’s Pixel devices always pack the cutting-edge technology but with the Pixel 2, Google is taking a rather conservative approach.


While there were rumors that the new devices might feature the upcoming Snapdragon 836 chip, it turns out, as most leaks are suggesting, the Pixel 2 will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip.

The same chip also features on the OnePlus 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 as well.

2. Single-Camera Module

With the world going crazy after dual cameras like the new iPhone X, Google is sticking to the basics.

Google offered a very potent camera with the older Pixel smartphone and is planning to recreate the same magic with the Pixel 2.

This time, to offer better image quality, the global brand has also invested in a dedicated imaging chip that will work along with the unannounced sensor to offer some fabulous image results.

3. Wireless Charging

Stepping up its wireless game, Google is in with some new tech as well. And with the Pixel 2, wireless charging will come as a standard.

Most likely, the wireless charger will be made a part of the standard kit and it will be a welcome surprise. With wireless charging, the Pixel 2 will definitely help declutter user’s life and then some.

The only sad part would be the seemingly smaller 2700mAh battery on the Pixel 2, which should ideally have been more considering the high-performance chip the new phone features.

4. Water and Dust Protection

Google offers a simple yet intriguing design with the pixel devices and it will continue the same with the Pixel 2. The brand, however, has decided in favor of water and dust resistant design that will be available on both the phones.

The Pixel 2 duo will be IP67 compliant which means that the phone can function underwater and will not be prone to any dust related damage either.

Users with an active lifestyle are surely going to like this one.

5. No Edge-to-Edge Display

Edge-to-Edge displays are another leading industry standard for mobile phones but sadly, the Google Pixel 2 will be coming sans this.


As reports suggest, the upcoming Google smartphone will feature a standard bezel design with is more conventional. The reason behind it could be attributed to enhancing the durability of the device.

Another reason for having a thicker bezel is to accommodate the dual speakers on the new smartphone.
