The Google Pixel 2 and the Google Pixel 2 XL would be introduced in 2017 as new high-end smartphones. But it will not be two versions of the same smartphone, one with a compact screen and one with a large format screen, but two different smartphones. In fact, they may not even be called Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL.
Two different mobiles
Google will launch two smartphones in 2017. But smartphones will be different. They will not be the same smartphone in different versions. But they will be two different motives. In fact, it seems even impossible that smartphones can be called Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL considering that they will be different mobiles.
In fact, each mobile will have a different strategy. There will be a high-end smartphone, with a high-level design, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8, and with high-end technical features. However, there will be another smartphone that will be more standard, a mobile more similar to OnePlus 5.
The objective would be to present two mobiles that have two different market strategies. One of the smartphones would be high-end, with a high-level design, and a price also really expensive, while another smartphone would be high-end, but with a standard design, and with a price similar to OnePlus 5, being a smartphone something more economic.
General tactile sensations from Google Pixel 2 XL are positive. However, it is important to understand that HTC, which acted as an assembler of Pixel models, has certain difficulties with creating minimal frames and indents. Therefore, according to the dimensions of Pixel 2 XL (154.72 x 75.74 x 8.58 mm) not far away from the rather big Apple iPhone 7S Plus (158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm).
So if the iPhone 7S Plus is too big for you, then the Pixel XL will probably look big, and in that case, pay attention to 5 “Pixel – you get all the Pixel 2 XL chips, but in a smaller format. As for the assembly, then HTC surpassed itself (apparently, under the supervision of Google). The details are densely and evenly adjusted to each other, nothing creaks (my HTC 10 had a curve Home button and the front panel was uneven).
When will the Google Pixel 2 and the Google Pixel 2 XL be introduced?
While it is true that it was stated that perhaps the Google Pixel 2 could be presented in August, the fact is that it will not be so. In fact, if it were to launch in August, much more information would have come on the launch of the new smartphone. However, since it has not been so, the most likely is that the Google Pixel 2 will not launch in August. Maybe in September if the smartphone officially launches, or perhaps in October, just as the original Google Pixel was launched in October.
