According to unconfirmed data, the release date of Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL is scheduled for early October 2017. Presumably, this will be the second or third day of the month. The exact time and place of the event is not yet known.
It is expected that Google Pixel 2 will become a new reference smartphone based on the mobile OS from the search giant and will demonstrate the full power of the new version of Android 8.0 Oreo (its exact name is not yet known, but soon we will know it).
In addition to the two smartphones, Google can present several interesting new products, among which may be a second-generation virtual reality helmet Daydream View 2, a streaming player Chromecast Ultra 2 and an updated home assistant Google Home.
If we return to the “standard” Google Pixel 2, then the situation is very interesting. Contrary to the expectations of the fans, the creators of the “googlephone” did not experiment with large frameless screens, but they bet on the classic design and did not even put a double camera on the novelty.
Thus, in 2017, it’s not Google and not even Apple that sets the vector for the development of the smartphone market. Now the “trendsetter” here is Samsung with its conceptual Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. And this fall, they also have to join a Galaxy Note 8 stylus tablet.
It is expected that sales of Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will begin shortly after the presentation, and the main markets for new “google phones” will be the US and developed countries in Europe. There is a high probability that here the second “pixels” will not officially appear in the few countries.
Google Pixel, cheaper than OnePlus 5
The Google Pixel now has a price 200 dollars cheaper than the price at which it was launched. The cheapest version of the Google Pixel is priced at $ 420. It is a very cheap price. The OnePlus 5, a high-end smartphone, priced more cheaply than other smartphones in the market of a similar level, has a price of about 590 dollars. And the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, the Samsung high-end of 2016, also has a price of about 590 dollars.
However, Google Pixel is not officially sold in Europe. However, if you are traveling to the United States and want to buy a quality mobile at an economical price, the Google Pixel has a price of about 350dollars. Probably the Google Pixel is one of the best phones that can be bought right now for about 470 dollars.
