Google Pixel 2 release confirmed for 2017, but it will remain expensive

Google Pixel 2 to remain expensive, no budget Pixel phone in the works Google says to “count on” a second-generation Pixel smartphone this year

Google had largely denied it lately through one of its spokespersons: there will be no small version of the Pixel smartphone.

There has been news floating around that Google is working on a successor to the Pixel smartphone, which will be called the Pixel 2.

It is expected that Google Pixel 2 will also be released during October this year keeping in line with its predecessor.

The CopperheadOS Google Pixel will carry the same hardware features. The only sad part is the end of the Nexus devices, which are still loved by many Google loyalists and served a wider range of customers with its reasonable pricing.

Further, when asked whether Pixel 2 will come at a pocket-friendly price, he cleared the air. Since then, rumours and speculations regarding a budget-Pixel smartphone have been taking the rounds. Well, the Nexus 5 may be old but it is still pretty much gold when you consider how practical the device is. Needless to say, the Pixel 2B will come equipped with a less powerful hardware. This means that the devices receive updates at the same time with other Google devices. However, the upcoming Pixel 2 is going to cost you a bit. It's rumored that Google is carrying out several tests at the moment with different processors, including the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon chips and specialised Intel hardware. There is no word though on when the Pixel 2 will be ready to storm markets. Both companies will have a lot to prove with their devices. Apart from this, the sides of the smartphone look nearly identical to the frame of the aging iPhone 6. It also clarifies the fact that Google Pixel smartphones were not a one-time wonder and are here to stay. Currently, the Pixel and the Pixel XL are frequently out of stock. So how will this new update benefit the device consumers? That said, the two security patch updated fixed an issue related to "Android partners with the flexibility to more quickly fix a subset of vulnerabilities that are similar across all Android devices.".

Google meanwhile is expected to incorporate a few improvements in its forthcoming Pixel 2 handset with respect to the current model.
