Are You Excited for the Pixel 2 / Pixel 2 XL and Other Google Announcements?
We are exactly one week away from Google launching a new batch of hardware to the world. So far, we have heard about a miniature version of Google Home, a premium Google Pixel Chromebook, an updated version of Daydream View and two new Pixel smartphones from both HTC as well as LG. The smaller of the two new Pixel smartphones will be from HTC and we’ve seen it stop by the FCC, some colors and pricing details, and an alleged live photo of the device.
The Pixel 2 XL will be manufactured by LG and seems to be taking design cues from their LG G6 and LG V30 smartphones. Our own sources have revealed what should be the new hardware specs for these two devices, features such as stereo speakers, always listening and portrait mode, and an always on display, HTC’s squeeze feature and multiple display profiles. So with all of this in mind, we ask you:
Are you looking forward to a specific device at Google’s hardware launch event next week? What do you think of the new Pixels based on what we know so far? Are you considering an upgrade at all, and if so, what do these devices need to convince you?
