Phone by Google, vol. 2: 7 rumored features of the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2
Aside from the iPhone 8 and the Galaxy Note 8, the tech world has another rather anticipated pair of smartphones in its sights - the Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL2, Google's anticipated follow-ups of last year's generally well-accepted consumer-friendly smartphones.

As such, the second-gen Pixels are already garnering lots of attention under the form of rumors, gossip, and hearsay seeping through the grapevine, available for just about anyone mildly interested in Google's device effort to reach out and grab.

We already seem to know a whole lot about the next Pixel phones and we can make educated guesses about whatever we know nothing about. With that in mind, let's explore some of the biggest expected highlight features of the upcoming kings of Android hill.


Our descriptive rumor review with all there is to know about the Pixels will keep you in the loop, so feel free to check it our right below!

Sqqueeeze me tight guugule!!! But seriously if this were htc or other underdog brands, everybody would be criticizing the squeeze feature as a gimmick (or just about any feature even) but when its apple, google, microsoft, nokia, and samsung etc people would be all over it like its some sort of sliced bread. Keep up the good work htc and keep innovating. I stillt remember stereo boom sound speakers and dual ultra pixel cameras like its yesterday.

"While this novel and rather exotic feature is yet to prove itself as a useful addition to Android"

Hasnt caught on. But how is it NOT useful to have an added way of triggering an option, that costs the end user nothing? It's the same as an extra button that you can remap. Like the bixby button should be.

I prefer the extra button to the squeezable frame tbh. There you can tap, hold and double tap for different functions/appr without any danger of the phone falling from your grasp and without feeling weird.

Apparently it triggers false actions in normal day to day usage and adjustments for pressure need more fine tuning to get it right

Higher price tag? I guess the existing phone isn't expensive enough?

Give me IP68 cert and I'll take it over the S8 or i8

Ok can someone tell me...if the XL2 had a 6" 2:1 screen, how I'd be able to swipe down to view the notifications?

I don't like this new look of phones resembling telephone poles. I would rather a wider phone. I'm 5'2", petite woman, not large hands and my Nexus 6P still feels comfortable in the hand. I held the S8, it's too skinny.
That said, I'm buying the XL2 if the speaker and camera are excellent.

They will be exactly that... Excellent. Especially the camera.

I'm really hoping the camera will kick ass like the one on the HTC U11, or hopefully even better than the U11. Then this is a no brainer over the S8
