The Google Pixel 2 is expected to make an appearance at a launch event on 4 October. Being so close, the rumour mill has got up to full speed with a new leak revealing lots of details early.
According to tweets from Artem Russakovskii, founder of the reliable Android Police, we can expect a few new additions to the hardware and software on the Pixel 2.
One very cool feature is the ability to squeeze the Pixel 2 in order to activate Google Assistant. Yup, this phone is being made by HTC and yes that is a unique feature from the HTC U 11.
The Pixel 2 camera is expected to offer a special bokeh effect to create background blur in photos.This will apparently be done using software alone since the Pixel 2 shouldn’t come with a dual camera setup.
The source also claims we can expect a redesigned launcher, newly designed Google homepage, dual front facing speakers and a flat glass front finish.
Everything should be revealed soon about the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL at the Google event on 4 October.
