Google Pixel Update - New Phone Is On The Way

Google Pixel 2

The Google Pixel 2 is currently being worked on as the next Google Phone to launch in 2017.

That’s according to the company’s SVP of hardware, Rick Osterloh, who revealed the big news during a press event at Mobile World Congress earlier this week.

The company is set to reveal the Google Pixel 2 later this year and will remain a “premium” device.

“There is an annual rhythm in the industry. So, you can count on us to follow it,” Osterloh commented.

“You can count on a successor this year, even if you don’t hear a date from me now.”

Rumours of the Google Pixel 2 first emerged earlier this year, with the device expected to feature a number of hardware improvements on the first-generation device.

This will include a more powerful processor, as well as more memory and storage. It’s rumored that Google is carrying out several tests at the moment with different processors, including the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon chips and specialised Intel hardware.

Despite the latest update, Google is set to feature renewed smartphone competition in the coming weeks, with the Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8 both set to launch in the not too distant future.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 release date is still weeks away, but now a major new leak has revealed everything you could want to know about the new phone.

Having already been the subject of multiple leaks and countless rumours, the entire Galaxy S8 specs sheet has now emerged online.

Revealing all the inner workings of the upcoming iPhone rival, the leaked specs sheets has confirmed the eagerly awaited handset is going to be something truly special.

Surfaced via tech blog TechnoBuffalo, the comprehensive Galaxy S8 leak also shows how similar the phone will be to the Galaxy S8+, with the larger phone having seen its full features list emerge earlier this week.

Kicking things off with the screen, the S8 looks set to be a visual delight with a 5.8-inch QHD panel set to boast a stunning 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution.

This panel will curve around both the phone's left and right hand edges and will be squeezed in to a phone with near identical dimensions to last year's 5.1-inch Galaxy S7 thanks to a new edge-to-edge design made possible by killing off the physical home button on the phone's lower front edge.

Elsewhere the phone, which like its predecessor will be water and dust resistant, will play host to a 12MP dual pixel primary camera and a new 8-megapixel selfie shooter that'll be enhanced by its own integrated flash.

That's not all the front camera will be capable of, either.

Partnered with a new iris scanner, the phone will be capable of being unlocked just by looking at it, with the camera helping read the unique pattern within your eye.
