Google Pixel 2: Rounding up all the rumors and leaks

What kind of specs will it have?

Google is expected to follow the same format it did year by including the same identical specs in each model, with only the display serving as the main differentiator.

So what kind of specs are we talking about? The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be the first major smartphone to run the new Snapdragon 836 processor. There was talk Samsung would get the new processor for the Note 8, but it didn’t. This will be buoyed by 4GB of RAM.

A 5-inch display is expected to be on the Pixel 2, and a 6-inch display will be on the Pixel 2 XL. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL should also be the first Android devices to come with Android Oreo out of the box.

Those are the only specs that have been revealed so far. Talk of a dual-camera has filtered in and out, but no details have emerged as to whether Google’s new flagships will actually add a second camera.

We are hoping that Google adds wireless charging and a water and dust resistant build, but neither of those have been mentioned in early Pixel 2 rumors.

The information we included has not been confirmed, and won’t be until Google takes the stage for the supposed October 5 event.

Until then, this is our best guess so far with all the information we’ve collected of what to expect.
