Google's Pixel 2 event is tomorrow and here's what we're expecting

Posted October 04, 2017

For now i would say, let's wait until Google launches the device today. Here are the six products that Google is likely to launch today. It is made by LG and it has many similarities with the LG V30.

- The Pixel 2 is likely to have a 2700 mAh battery while the Pixel 2 XL will come with 3400 mAh battery. Both the handsets would ditch the 3.5mm audio jack, and offer dual stereo speakers. Exactly year later, the Mountain View-based technology company is prepping up to unveil the next iterations of its smartphones, the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2. The phone is expected to sport a 6-inch screen with thin bezels, similar to what we see in the LG V30. However, the phones are also expected to have a few additional features, namely an auto-Shazam feature that can identify music being played in the background, and a single-camera bokeh mode. Many expect the company to debut Android 8.1 or Android 8.0.1 Oreo at the event.

In this ad, Google describes the Pixel 2 as a new way to capture, store, and see the world. It'll also come with a wider screen, when in landscape mode, than the Pixel 2.

Reports suggest the new Daydream headset will cost $99 - $20 more than last year's version - which suggests Google intends to keep pushing it as a high-end option. The hybrid tablet, as mentioned by Droid Life, could come with a 360-degree hinge and will run Chrome OS.

This premium laptop is expected to start retailing at $1,119 (approx Rs 78,000) for the 128GB storage variant, while the top-of-the-line 512GB model is expected to set you back by $1749 (approximately Rs 1,15,000). Like Apple, Google will be jumping in with their own special stylus, and as such will not be including it directly in the price of the new PixelBook.

As the name suggests, the Google Home Mini will be the smaller version of the now available Google Home Bluetooth speaker. With just a few hours left for the official launch, we'll have a clearer picture of what can be expected of Google's Pixel line-up in future. This price is $15 more expensive than the rumored $49 price of the Amazon Echo Dot challenger, which will also be powered by Google Assistant.

Back in October 4th, 2016, Google officially launched not only one smartphone but two flagship handsets that was created to directly compete against the Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Rumours also suggest that Google has created a special chip to do image processing and go beyond the HDR+. Pretty much everything about these gen-next Google smartphones is known.
