Google confirms they will release the Pixel 2 this year

Even though we have not yet started receiving any possible solid evidence of the Google Pixel 2, a while back some trusted sources claimed that Google is working on a cheaper variant of the Google Pixel Smartphone. The Nexus phones have been known for providing high-end hardware and features for a mid-range price. It is premium, performance wise, providing awesome camera quality, smooth performance, and a great HD screen and storage capacity. That means sometime around October, when the original Pixel and Pixel XL were released.

The guys at AndroidPit happened to have a conversation with Rick Osterloh at the Mobile World Congress 2017. Apple now doesn't allow third-party voice helpers to co-exist alongside Siri, so Google may have to find some way around that. Android Messages will then be able to tell you when messages are read, show you maps, provide you with stickers, and much more. The 2016 launched phone uses Android 7.1, the latest android software.

One of the biggest criticisms levelled at the original Pixel phone was its high price, as the device still now costs on sale for an eye-watering £529. But the sales are reported to be steady by the tech company.

It was only a couple of days ago when we heard Rick Osterloh saying there won't be any new Pixel laptop at the moment. However, it does not seem likely that the Pixel 2 will displace the iPhone 8 as the best selling premium smartphone anytime soon. Although, the successor to Google's successful predecessor will continue to be priced towards the higher end. That is why you can count on Google to follow it. "So, you can count on us to follow it", Osterloh said in a meeting with a select group of press.

What would you like to see from the Google Pixel 2?

Osterloh confirmed that there would be a new Pixel phone this year, but he didn't clarify exactly when it would be released. "We have the number two market share in the USA and United Kingdom - but we have no plans for Google-branded laptops". According to them, Google hold launch events for the Nexus brands in the past.
