Google Leak Reveals Pixel 2 'Shape Change'

Google Pixel 2: Code names indicate pixel successors and a new Nexus


Google, the internet giant is working on pixel 2. Now for the first time the codenames of the new Google smartphones have been revealed. So the pixel 2 internally to the name "Walleye" and the pixel XL 2 to the name "Muskie". A third device with the code name "Taimen" provides for speculation. Does Google plan a new Nexus smartphone?Will Google work on three new smartphones for the year 2017? According to media reports, the company is developing the Google Pixel and the Google Pixel XL as codename "Walleye" and "Muskie". "Walleye" is the smaller Google pixel 2, "Muskie" is the Pixel XL 2, reports the usually well-informed US blog Android Police. A reference to "Walleye" has already been discovered in the Android source code.
According to the web page "Droid Life", "Taimen" is said to be another new Google smartphone, which will show a larger screen than Pixel XL 2 to the informer of the website. Possibly, the display will measure six inches in the diagonal. According to Droid Life, "Taimen" is not likely to be marketed under the "Google Pixel" brand. So far the information here is very daring.

This is what the code names mean


What do the code names "Walleye", "Muskie" and "Taimen" mean? Traditionally, Google is designing new devices internally for fish and / or fish species, which was earlier in the Nexus smartphones. So the Nexus 6 was called "Shamu" because of its size. A homage to the killer whale from the SeaWorld shows.

The Nexus 5X was developed under the codename "Bullhead", the English term for catwels. The first pixel devices internally on Google called "Sailfish" (fanfish) and "Marlin" (spearfish). "Walleye" and "Muskie" are also fish species. "Walleye" is the English name for glass eye bass. Taimen, on the other hand, is a very large species of salmon.

Google Head Confirms Second Generation Pixel Phone

Pixel
This year might have just have begun but we are already moved by the reports of Google and Apple. Probably this year would bring a dynamic change in the world of cells. Google is trying its best to compete with it’s one of the top rivals –Apple with Second Generation Pixel phone. Well, Apple has always maintained the trend of releasing iPhones each year ever since its inception and now we may see Google just following the same trend. But the catch is whether Google will be able to match up to the expectations of the users and also whether it would take everyone by surprise. The rumours of iPhone 8 have already been spread but now the question lies whether Apple would be able to be deliver those features without any glitches like the 3-D selfie camera which is supposed to map your face.

THE PIXEL 

With the news being confirmed that Google is set to launch the second version of Pixel which can range around 900$. So be prepared to shed a bit more for the wonderfully crafted design of Pixel 2. The previous Pixel boasts of an enormous charging facility and battery backup which is the major concern for the normal consumers. Well, it was able to give seven hours of standby charge when it was charged for just fifteen minutes. Needless to say, the design was superb with the storage capacity of 32 GB or 128 GB. The video calling app like DUO may get a newer look or an upgrade in the Pixel 2. The ALLO app for messaging was a huge success. The design may be a sleek a bit and may use cutting edge technology to beat the likes of Apple in the top smartphone market.

THE FEATURES

With the passage of time, the technology has got more advanced and with more exciting features, it is just icing the cake. The latest report says Google is planning to ditch the headphone jack just like the iPhone 7. It is planning to take over the market in the broader way. Well, this report might not be true as it was an internal Google document and hasn’t been verified still. But within a short span of time, the picture would be clear. The processor for the Pixel 2 would be Snap Dragon. Probably it would be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. It is supposed to be water resistant as well as dust resistant.

THE MARKET

Google’s main focus would be on photography just like the predecessors. And for this they have decided to stay premium in the market. Well, we have got to have patience before any final news is confirmed about the product and release date. It is now time to see whether there would be any better feature than the Gorilla glass or not. The display is said to be HD with latest features which will be quite cool when coming to the photography part. The year surely promises to be awesome with respect to the smartphones.

Google Reveals Pixel Phone

Google’s New Smartphone Under Pixel Brand


Alphabet’s Google is likely to reveal the new smartphones at an event held on Tuesday which is said to be the latest attempt by the company to sell consumers on Google patented device as well as to test Apple AAPL 0.43% at the high end of the market. Analysts have predicted that the San Francisco product launch would be showcasing the other hardware initiatives of Google GOOGL 0.30% comprising of voice-controlled speaker system known as Home with a view to contest Amazon.com’s AMZN – 0.32% Echo device together with a virtual reality headset.

The most enthusiastically awaited smartphone released under the Pixel brand will be replacing the Nexus line. Though most of the vendors besides Apple tend to use Google’s Android operating system, the company has been toying with several methods in building its own hardware without isolating the manufacturers. Since 2010, Google has sold Nexus phones though the devices have attained little power in the market controlled by Samsung Electronic SSNLF 24.00%. The analysts are of the opinion that the uninspiring sales is due to poor distribution since the phone are not naturally available through the network carrier which most of the U.S. network consumers tend to depend on.

Google – End-to-End Experience


Google had also owned the Motorola smartphone business temporarily before selling it to the Lenovo Group.Google had to struggle to make a distinction with its devices since its mobile software had been made available very extensively according to analyst Jan Dawson of Jackdaw Research.

He added that Google wanted to have this end-to-end experience though it was not clear that people really wanted that. The cost of the new Pixel phone is likely to be over $6000, which makes them at the high end of the market where Apple is said to be the prominent competitor.

Dawson seems to be more optimistic regarding the Home device which was unveiled at the developer conference of the company this year that tends to work with home entertainment systems, responding to voice commands. The device is said to signify a significant move in an escalating battle with Google and the other tech giants in launching the dominant `digital assistant’.

Alexa/Siri – Competing for Control


Alexa, Google Assistant of Amazon and Siri of Apply have been competing for control since most of the individuals tend to search the web making online purchases through voice commands that could ultimately replace keyboards as well as touch screens as the main means of monitoring digital devices. Though Amazon had been the first to market, Google could take over most of the sales in the nascent category, as per Dawson.

However with smartphones, the distribution could be a challenge.He also added that Amazon had the benefit of being capable of putting this on the home page of the biggest e-commerce site in the world. Ben Bajarin analyst of Creative Strategies stated that he too anticipates Google to discuss its virtual reality headset, Daydream at the event.

He also commented that the company would also disclose plans of combining its Chrome operating system for laptops as well as its Android mobile software thereby assist developers in building more devices.
