: In recent past, we have seen the dual-lens camera is in trend. Many of big guns like Apple, LG and Huawei have already adopted the trend and that’s working great for them. Google may bring the dual-lens camera in Pixel 2 which will certainly make it more appealing to users. However, the Galaxy S7 and recently launched Pixel are also equivalently great camera phones even without dual-lens. So, it’s also possible that Google Pixel2 will just come up with amazing 16 MP camera that offers better image quality without adopting dual-lens and stands out of the race.

What makes Google Pixel 2 amazing in 2017?

Although Pixel is an outstanding device by Google, there are many areas where they can make improvement and bring something amazing in 2017. There are mainly 3 areas of concern for Google which may get resolved with upcoming Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2.

pixel XL 2, pixel 2, Google pixel 2

1. Better Design: This is main concern as most of the devices launched this season features almost similar design. Google must make Pixel 2 more appealing to users and stand out from the crowd. It should be slimmer, bigger and better this time.

2. Water-Resistance: Last year they have launched their Pixel flagship which just features IP58 ratings. IP58 rating doesn’t make any sense as people when people can get a better option in the same price range. Goole Pixel 2 will be water resistance with IP68 water and dust resistance ratings.

3. Iris Eye Scanner: Last year Samsung has tried their hands with eye scanner unlocking features in Note 7 but somehow the Note 7 battery blast has destroyed everything for them. Now, there is no other device in the market to features iris eye scanning technology. Google must take this as an opportunity and play their cards wisely.

Will Pixel 2 be available for pre-order and what colors they will have?




Let me know the probable release date in India soon after it is finalized in house giving me ample time to plan buying one.


    Steven Vainhack






What about battery power,will it go longer?




what about expandable storage. more appealing if you can add an sd card




    yup, you are right shauwn, but we don’t think Google will add micro SD card to it. Although the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will be available in 64GB and 128GB storage variants.


Tim Doy


Terrible grammar. This was hard to read and understand.




re: Battery – I second that. For the Pixel2 to have only a 200mAh capacity increase doesn’t seem right. Going from 2700mAh to 2900mAh is still lower than the Galaxy S8’s 3000mAh capacity. I really hope these specs aren’t in stone.




Google Pixel 2 XL better have the new Snapdragon 836 & 6GB of RAM!
128GB/256GB models! Or “64GB with MicroSDXC UHS I”
6″ 3K OLED display (LG) with Gorilla glass 5
IP68 Certified
3600 mAh battery or 3800 mAh battery
16MP Dual Camera, Dual lenses, Dual RGB flash + 8MP
Iris Scanner
Dual SIM
Dedicated Camera button
Stereo speakers
I’m expecting these specs!
