After a long wait, Google announced its flagship smartphone named ‘Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL’ in the first week of October. The sad part here is; Google didn’t improvise the specifications on the parameter of innovation. In simple terms, Pixel 2 is slightly superior to its predecessor in terms of hardware and camera performance.
The Google Pixel 2 price is starting from Rs 61,000 in the Indian market.
As far as the specification is concerned the Pixel 2 features a 5.0-inch display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels. It is powered by 1.9GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and comes with 4GB of RAM. It is coupled with a 32GB of internal storage that cannot be further expanded, running Android oreo 8.0.
For photography, it has a 12.2-megapixel primary camera on the rear and an 8-megapixel front shooter for selfie lovers.
It measures 145.70 x 69.70 x 7.80 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 143.00 grams. It is powered by a 2700mAh non-removable battery.
It features a single SIM (GSM) slot that accepts a Nano-SIM, other connectivity features include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). The device features other sensors such as Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor, Barometer.Compass Magnetometer, Gyroscope and Proximity sensor.
To be honest, after observing the above-mentioned specs, we can conclude the fact that these giant players in the smartphone market are left with very less innovational aspects as far as today’s smartphones are concerned.
