Google Pixel Specs Leak Ahead of the October 4 Launch Event

September 29, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Google has been heavily confidential regarding its Pixel smartphones like usual. But thanks to insiders that there have been plenty of info that got surfaced ahead. The most detailed of them now comes courtesy of Android Authority, who have now revealed a greater view of the hardware that the smartphone features.

Being a flagship, it would only be a natural guess to expect the smartphone get shipped with Snapdragon 835 SoC. That’s one info that has been confirmed by the new leak. Both the Pixel and Pixel 2 XL will be powered by the flagship SoC. We have loved Google going the way of not downgrading the specs for smaller Pixel, and it’s the same this time around it appears.

Both the devices will feature Corning Gorilla 5 protection over their displays. But like it has been with the original Pixel, the pixel count with vary in both the devices. A curved QHD panel is what’s said to be onboard the bigger Pixel, while the Pixel 2 will feature a Full HD display.

The leaked images earlier was a confirmation that neither of them would be featuring dual-cameras. But indeed, the camera depot is a game up from the predecessor, with Google putting in a dedicated Google Imaging Chip on both the devices. The cameras will also be branded as Pixel Cameras, and we would barely be witnessing a gap in the quality like in iPhone and its Plus counterpart.

There would be no headphone jack as indicated by the leak. The devices will however feature dual-speakers, both of which will be front firing. As with the battery, the Pixel 2 XL will have a larger 3520mAh battery compared to the 2700mAh battery that will be packed inside Pixel 2.

Pixel 2 will also have the squeezable technology similar to the one that was introduced by HTC. By default, the feature can be used to open Assistant or mute calls and alarms, but we can expect that to be customizable.

And definitely, both the devices will have Android 8.0 Oreo pre-installed, so we would definitely be in for a treat on October 4 when Google lifts off the lid officially.
