Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2: Release date and features

Maybe the iPhone 7 by itself is not the best mobile to buy but if we join the iOS 7 operating system, we find one of the best combinations of hardware and software. On the other hand, we love the smartphones Google Pixel and Pixel XL because they did exactly the same. The Pixel and Pixel XL, which went on the market last year, are a great union between the hardware designed by Google and the operating system vanilla Nougat.

Despite everything, they were a little short of rivals such as the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. Now, it seems that the Google Pixel 2 will reach the end of the year and will have to improve in several aspects if it wants to win the game to the iPhone 7S and Galaxy S8.

Google Pixel 2 Release Date

Google has not yet officially said when the Google Pixel 2 will come to light but normally every year updates its mobile. So, we can predict the arrival of Pixel 2 by seeing when the Google Pixel went on the market, which was in October 2016. Given this, it is most likely that the Pixel 2 is on the street in the last quarter of the year, fair in time for Christmas. Given that, here are some things we want to see in the Google Pixel 2.

Google Pixel 2: The features we expect

1. A more polished design

The Google Pixel is a pretty mobile but a bit ... boring. We liked some details like matt finish and shine. The brand has not wanted to risk at all and from a distance it is difficult to distinguish Google from the iPhone 7 Apple. The Samsung S7 has achieved its own style so it is clear that the Google Pixel 2 will need to offer a more daring and interesting.

2. A more durable finish

The Google Pixel came with an original finish that matte matched with the brightness, but only after a few hours we began to notice tiny scratches in both the Pixel and the Pixel XL when we try them. If Google does not give the option of a Pixel 2 that is completely matte will have to check that the finish is now more durable.

3. A brighter screen

The Google Pixel has one of the best screens we've ever used, full of life and color. However, its AMOLED screen is not as bright as that of its competitors. The Google Pixel offers a peak of brightness of 411 cd / m 2. The Google Pixel 2 wants to lead, you should have a brighter screen.

4. A faster processor

The Google Pixel is fast but the Google Pixel 2 should still be much faster. Our Pixel XL had a 1,546 Geekbench 4 rating on the single core test and 4,142 on multiple cores, which is fine. However, the Samsung S7, S7 Edge and iPhone 7 are still clearly ahead, as all three devices exceed the 5,000 mark in the Geekbench 4 multi-core test.

If the Pixel 2 is going to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the iPhone 7s should have a processor much faster than the one that is used today. It is also rumored that Samsung and Apple will go to full length with its new range of devices.

5. A battery with greater autonomy

Actually, the Google Pixel has a good battery but is not the leader in its segment. Despite having a 2,770 mAh (not very large) battery, the Pixel lasted no less than 16 hours and 23 minutes in our test, while the Pixel XL (3,450 mAh) arrived at 14 hours and 55 minutes.

However, these benefits are somewhat less impressive compared to those of their rivals. The Samsung Galaxy S7, for example, lasted 18 hours and 42 minutes. Another device to consider is the OnePlus 3 that lasted 16 hours and 56 minutes under the same conditions.

If the Google Pixel 2 wants to "touch the face" to the new wave of high-end mobile you will need to be able to put a much larger battery inside your case.
