Google Selling A New Pixel Phone, But Not The Pixel 2
With the Google Senior VP of hardware, Rick Osterloh confirming not long ago that a Google Pixel 2 is definitely coming this year and will stay in the premium realm, tech enthusiast are looking at every detail in search for possible leads of the said device. Now, a new lead has been identified, but it isn't about the Pixel 2. Instead, it's about a newly "manufactured" Pixel and Pixel XL phone.
The 'Less Flawed' Google Pixel Phones
A recent Pixel buyer discovered a "Rev. B" note printed on the Pixel's retail packaging which led many to believe that the company may have done some revisions to the device's hardware. However, according to an article at 9to5Google, Google commented about this issue and assured that they have not made any revisions to the Pixel or Pixel XL's hardware, but admitted of making some minor improvements in the manufacturing process to further reduce any likelihood of an audio codec failure.
In fact, last month, Brian Rakowski, a Google employee, replied to a post on the support forums regarding the severe microphone issues of the Pixel phones. Rakowski said that the company has been taking additional steps to reinforce the connection at the time of manufacture on phones built since January and assured that the phones will not have that issue at all.

The Pixel runs on Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box and is packed with a Snapdragon 821 chipset and Adreno 530 GPU. It features two varying internal memory specs, 32 and 128 GB, both featuring 4 GB of RAM with no external memory option available.
