Just a few hours ago Google presented its new smartphone Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL as well as other new products. The second, new version of the Nexus successor smartphones offers like the first pixel a pure Android without annoying boldware. As with its predecessor, the new Pixel 2 / XL offers in the first time functions, which other Android device does not offer. In the long term, however, these new features should then be complied with in the Android base version. Another new feature is that Google is now offering the Pixel 2 / XL an update guarantee of three years, instead of just two.

Like the previous version, the new pixel devices offer in two sizes: once without and once with the addition “XL”. The small version of the Pixel 2 has a 5 “large OLED screen, which dissolves with 1920 x 1080 and is produced by the Taiwanese company HTC. Google had taken patents and personnel of HTC for 1.1 billion US dollars a few days ago.

The larger brother of the Pixel 2, the Pixel 2 XL comes from LG and has a 6 “Large OLED screen with 2880 x 1440 pixel resolution. Google emphasizes that there are no differences between the two devices apart from the display size, aspect ratio and battery capacity (pixel 2 2,700 mAh, pixel 2 XL 3,520 mAh).

Inner values
Both smartphones are powered by a 2.35 GHz fast eight core processor, have four gigabytes of memory and are available as 64 or 128 GB version as of October 19 and November. In addition, both phones are IP67 standard dust and waterproof. Both devices have a USB-C port for charging and data transfer. Both systems also depend on the current WLAN, Bluetooth and LTE standards for communication.

It is noticeable that Google does not put on the pixel 2 / XL like almost all other competitors on a dual camera. Instead, Google uses “smart” wizards to do this, and again shows that Google is primarily a softworm forge. Both the 8 Megapixel front camera and a 12.2 megapixel main camera. Although the same Sonysensor is also used with Pixel 2 as with many other top devices, the pixel 2 in the combination of the lens and the software stands out from the competition. The lens is also more powerful than its predecessor and offers f 1.8 instead of f 2.0.

Price-wise, the Pixel 2 starts at 799, – Euro with 64 GB of storage, the 128-GB version costs 909, – Euro UVP. The Pixel 2 XL with 64 GB 939, – Euro or with 128 GB 1.049, – Euro in the UVP. The Pixel 2 is to come in Germany from 19 October in the trade, the Pixel 2 XL only from mid-November.
