The Google Pixel 2 will be the next flagship device, that will have pretty much all the top end specs available. Reports claimed that there'll be a Snapdragon 835 CPU, the same processor that'll likely power the Samsung Galaxy S8. If Google goes for the Snapdragon 835, that means the Pixel 2 will be capable of Quick Charge 4.0. Reports have also suggested that the Pixel 2's camera is set for a massive upgrade, with Google reportedly looking at a sensor that will enable the device to excel at low-light photography. The previous Pixel device comes with a 12.3MP primary camera, which put it below the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S7 or Sony's Xperia phones in terms of pure megapixels. The new device is said to be the first to run Google's new Android 8.0 Oreo, which is heavily rumored to be the new version of the company's mobile software. Additionally, the Google Pixel 2 will feature a waterproof design for the first time.
