Google Pixel 2: Two technical sheets unveiled

By  | 

It was long believed that the Google Pixel 2 would come in three different models. But the disclosure of two fact sheets seems to confirm something else.

The Google Pixel has been marketed last year, but still makes a lot of talk about it. While three code names were known until then (Walleye, Muskie and Taimen), the technical sheet of two of them has just been unveiled. The “Muskie” could therefore be at a standstill. The Taimen is going to be the largest smartphone by Google this year, probably a phablet.

However, the characteristics of the other two are interesting. The Taimen would ship a 5.99-inch OLED slab with a 1440p definition by LG. A Snapdragon 835 chip should power everything, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. On the photo side, Google does not seem to privilege the dual sensor since there would be only one, equipped with a double LED flash. A powerful configuration for a smartphone XL, in short. The metal and glass shell should be kept.

Of course, the Snapdragon 835 will be accompanied by the Adreno 540 GPU and we will also have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. Since this is a benchmark and are done on specific terminals, a higher version that reaches 6GB of RAM and even reaches 128GB of internal memory, but for now remains hidden from really exist.

The Walleye – Google Pixel is more compact, but not necessarily less efficient! Equipped with a 4.97-inch screen, it also works with a SoC Snapdragon 835, 4 GB of RAM, but also 64 GB of storage. The design should not differ much from the first Google Pixel name. We can therefore expect thick edges at the ends. The data sheet does not indicate the presence of a 3.5 mm jack, but this remains to be confirmed.

A high-end Pixel 2

Although discreet at the Mobile World Congress, Google still gave some clues about the future of the family of Pixel smartphones. While the Californian Company announced that it was abandoning its computers of the range Pixel, a successor for the smartphones Google Pixel would be in development.

All that is known, through the declarations of Rick Osterloh, the product manager responsible for hardware, is that the manufacturer will make improvements in hardware and design in order to make it more efficient and fast while proposing new features expected. One can imagine, for example, compliance with the IP67 standard for resistance to water and dust. The Pixel second generation will therefore be a high-end since the googler specifies “Pixel stays premium “.

We are waiting to learn more about these two distinct models, especially if they are planned for the end of the year.
