One of the most anticipated Android offerings of 2017 has to be whatever Google will be launching in the fall. We fully expect to see a Pixel 2 release this year. We expect to see two devices with rumors pointing towards an LG made larger device and possibly an HTC made smaller device. These devices will likely be announced in October with sales being official a few days later.
The Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will both offer top of the line specs. The smaller device is expected to sport a 4.97" Full HD display, Snapdragon 835 cpu, 4GB of RAM, and a base storage option of 64GB. We may even see dual front facing speakers. We may see the removal of the headphone jack, and will likely not see a dual lens setup on this device. The Pixel 2 is expected to be dust and water resistant with an IP68 rating.
The larger of the two devices will have essentially all the same specs as the smaller, but will feature a 5.99 QHD display and larger battery. Android O will be featured on both devices at launch. The latest rumors suggest both phones will feature a very similar design to the Pixels of last year. These are expected to be pricey devices like we saw last year. The smaller version will likely be around $700 and the larger around $800 at launch. Are any of you holding out for these devices to be released?
