Google Pixel 2 Major Leak Takes On iPhone 8 And Galaxy S8
The first-ever earnest Pixel 2 leak shows more information about Google’s upcoming flagship mobile device rather than just its codename. Aside from that, a benchmark test for the upcoming Google Pixel XL 2 has also appeared online and it listed several details about the smartphone. The leaked information includes an evidence that Google’s new set of handsets should be just as exciting as Apple's iPhone 8 and Samsung's Galaxy S8.
Google Pixel 2 Compared To Apple iPhone 8 And Samsung Galaxy S8
According to BGR, the anticipated Google smartphones will have common features with iPhone 8 and Galaxy S8. The question now is, what do these mobile devices have in common? The almost bezel-less screen design. Samsung's latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, is already available in stores, while Apple's iPhone 8 that is expected to come before the end of this year will feature tiny bezels all around the display.
Found by WinFuture, the benchmark test says that the Google Pixel 2 will have a 5.6-inch display together with 2K resolution. That is 2560 x 1312, will sport a 2.4GHz Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor, a RAM of 4GB and 128GB of storage. In addition, it will also have a 12-MP rear camera and a 7-megapixel front facing camera both with up to 4K video recording.
What really stands out on the rumored specs is its resolution, which indicates that the smartphone will have an aspect ratio of approximately 2:1. According to Forbes, that’s in line with the 18.5:9 aspect ratio first introduced by Korean-made mobile devices such as LG G6 and the Galaxy S8.
This means that Google, as well as HTC, are pursuing an all-screen design for the next member of the Google Pixel family of devices. As of now, there are no images of the upcoming Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL handsets, but the tech giant confirms that it will surely arrive in the near future as we get closer to its release date.
