Google Pixel 2 Competitor for 2017 Mid Range Phones: The internet giant, Google is releasing its Pixel 2 before the end of 2017. The specifications of the device are already on the roll, and we should wait to figure whether the expectations are met.
Previously when the Google Pixel was released, it was much awaited one. After Nexus phones, the hope on Pixel was high. But it has to be mentioned that it wasn’t much of the user’s love. The rear camera and the photo storage was amazing in Pixel, but only those aren’t enough for the customers to justify their thousands spend. This time Pixel 2 is aimed to compete with the other high-end phones in the market and those that are yet to release.
Like the other flagship devices, Google Pixel 2 is also using Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. This year’s mid-price range releases like Xiaomi Mi 6, OnePlus 5 are also using the same processor and that way, let’s hope Pixel to perform as stunning as its competitors.
The next notable thing id the bendable OLED display for the device. Sources suggest that Google has shelled out around $880 million to LG Display to make flexible OLED panels for Pixel 2. Already S8 and S8 plus is said to have the same display, and iPhone 8 is expected to have the same, though there is some delay in the release of iPhone 8 which also has something to do with the issue in the OLED displays.
The previous version of Pixel isn’t extremely waterproof. The device was IP53 certified and not IP67 or IP68. KIP53 means that the device is mildly waterproof which would enable it to survive a slight splash of water. You should consider your phone dead if it slips into the water. Nowadays devices that costs as much as a month’s salary of a big shot makes sure that they survive the dip & take the phone in water. If the device is sunk in water for a while, none of them will live. But yes, the occasional fall into the water and picking it back shouldn’t be a problem. It is said that this version of Pixel – the Google Pixel 2 has the high-end certification and is worth the money spend.
Moreover, right after the release of Google pixel, the phone didn’t cease to reach the news often. It kept failing in a way or another which made it to the top of complaints. The battery, the camera, the microphone, the image distortion and much more kept showing up one after the another. Though a smartphone fail is very common, and every device has its fault, the series of mistakes from the Internet Giant is annoying. Not to add, a device of around 60k fails then, and there isn’t a joke. This should have made Google think twice before they pitch their Pixel 2.
There is also a talk that Google Pixel 2 would give up the 3.5mm audio jack. With all these changes and the lesson from the previous dull phone should give Google Pixel 2 the opening and result it deserves. For Google to compete with the living giants of the smartphone, the Pixel 2’s success would be a must count.
