Google Pixel 2 confirmed for later this year and it's staying "premium"

At the MWC 2017 event in Barcelona, AndroidPit asked Osterloh about the future of Pixel smartphones, and to which he replied saying that a successor will definitely come this year. We think that when Google's VP said that Pixel 2 will stay premium, he was meaning that Google will equip it with only high-end hardware pieces once again. He further added,"there is an annual rhythm in the industry". So, you can count on us to follow it. Although he did not confirm a specific launch date for the next Pixel smartphone, Osterloh told BGR India that Google will continue to follow the yearly flagship launch timeframe.

The current Google Pixel was launch in October past year, so we probably won't see the next Pixel anytime soon.

The device will directly competes with the Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Meaning, the stingy top-tier price range that consumers see on the Galaxy S and iPhone, the Pixel 2 will be no different as well.

If you enjoyed the Pixel and the Pixel XL and were looking forward to what Google had in store for 2017, we have some good news to share. But Osterloh also confirmed that it will be staying premium and they aren't thinking of doing a cheaper model.

Google has not mentioned more about the release of the next Pixel series smartphones. After Nexus and Chromebooks, Google launched its premium mobile device - Pixel.

Basically, what this means is that Google will be following the pattern of releasing its smartphone after the one-year cycle is over.

Rumours of the Google Pixel 2 first emerged earlier this year. Apart from design, it will also feature a much-improved camera for excellent photography even at low-level lighting. The company's impending Google Pixel 2 has been rumored for a while and Osterloh inadvertently confirmed the same. All Android phones that are running either of those two systems will soon be seeing Google Assistant show up on their devices. The Google Pixel 2 will supposedly be available in 5-inch and 5.7-inch variant.
