Pixel 2 Rumors Confirmed by Google Senior Vice President
Google unveiled its highly anticipated Pixel flagship smartphone lineup in October of last year. It looks like the Android parent has done a good job designing it since it’s considered as being the best overall smartphone that was launched in 2016. This shouldn’t surprise anyone since the device represents Google’s vision of a perfect Android powered smartphone. With that being said, it’s pretty clear why the entire world is expecting another offering to arrive this year.
Google Pixel 2: Release Date
Rick Osterloh who is Google’s Senior Vice President has attended the recent Mobile World Congress tech event and there he stated that Pixel 2 is on its way. Even better, the way Rick Osterloh worded his statement leads us to believe that Pixel 2 is almost ready to come out. In Rick Osterloh’s words “You can count on a successor this year, even if you don’t hear a date from me now”.
Google Pixel 2: Premium Smartphone
Google’s Senior Vice President didn’t only announce that Pixel 2 will arrive this year, he even confirmed that the smartphone is going to be premium.

Both Pixel and Pixel XL are renowned for bringing some of the most impressive hardware performances and according to Rick Osterloh, Pixel 2 will follow in their footsteps.
Google Pixel 2: Specs
The question that sits in everyone’s mind is how premium? We can be sure that Pixel 2 will feature the same smooth looking premium design, but its hardware parts are what matter the most. In order to classify Pixel 2 as a premium smartphone, Google will more than likely equip it with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor. The addition of this chipset will boost the device’s hardware power. In fact, Pixel 2’s hardware power will actually surpass the one provided by the already existing Pixel smartphones with the help of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 CPU.
Pixel was launched in October and Google will probably keep the tradition alive and launch Pixel 2 at the end of 2017. All major tech companies such as Samsung and Apple always launch their new smartphone offerings at the same date, and Google is definitely going to follow in their footsteps.
