There have been rumors flying recently that Google’s Pixel 2 smartphone will be released some time later this year. But just a few days ago, there is some increased talk that the said device will feature a squeezable body.
According to a recent report published by Ars Technica just this week, the number of installations of the Pixel Launcher mobile app (which can only be utilized with Google’s Pixel smartphones) has reached more than a million.
As revealed by Rick Osterloh, chief of hardware at Google, a new Pixel device is coming this year, but this new flagship offering may come with a rather steep price. When Google released its Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones last year, it signalled a new era in which the tech giant is releasing a Google branded device that is not Nexus.
Over the weekend, Google had revealed that it would be deploying Google Assistant soon to Android powered mobile devices in the United States, and then to other countries including Australia, Canada, Germany, and the United Kingdom. Well, the tech giant is now making good on that promise, tweeting just recently that the roll out is now ongoing.
According to a report published by SamMobile, soon to be owners of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 devices will have a better artificial intelligence feature than users of Google Pixel devices. There is some speculation that Samsung’s next flagship handsets will come with Bixby Assistant, which might launch with seven or even eight languages.
Earlier this week, Google had revealed that it was starting the roll out of Android 7.1.2, the newest version of Android Nougat, to devices such as the Google Pixel and the Nexus 5X (built by LG) by way of an over the air update.
Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones may only be available as an exclusive at Verizon Wireless, but various industry watchers are observing that the devices are selling well nonetheless during this year’s holiday shopping season.
Google’s latest flagship devices, the Pixel and the Pixel XL, were released preinstalled with the tech giant’s own Android 7.1 Nougat, a pretty standard update but still one that came with new features.
