The most interesting is Pixel 2 XL, as this marvelous piece received all the main “chips”. Google could not ignore the trend for frameless displays, so the 2nd generation Pixel XL is equipped with a 6-inch P-OLED display with a resolution of QHD + (2880×1440) and an aspect ratio of 18: 9. Frames in the smartphone are not record-breaking, but they are noticeably smaller than the predecessor. In addition, the device received frontal stereo speakers. Apparently, Google installed them instead of 3.5-mm audio connector, which is not available in smartphones.

The design of novelties has remained unchanged in major aspects. Like last year’s models, they are made in an all-metal case with a small-sized glass insert. The fingerprint scanner remained on the back side – apparently, built into the fingerprint display before 2018 should not wait. But there was a protection against water according to the IP67 standard, which was expected in last year’s models.
Frameless designs are the future! Unlike to the “professor models”, both new flagship did not receive a frameless display with an aspect ratio of 18: 9. The device has a traditional 5-inch Full HD 16: 9 screen with rather large frames. Also, the smartphone differs from the Pixel 2 XL by the location of the camera and the flash.
The original Pixel and Pixel XL set a high quality of shooting photos and videos. In new models, Google has even more enhanced its component, although it did not add the second module, and also left the permission to the former one. The engineers of the company managed to achieve improvements by software. The camera has a built-in portrait mode for blurring the background, the facial enhancement function and the analogue of “Live photos” from Apple, when instead of a static picture a short video is created.
All amazing new camera features! Google managed to realize without the addition of a second camera lens the ability to shoot photos with a blurry background – like professional cameras. All this is done exclusively with the help of software algorithms. They separate the main object in the frame from the background, blurring the last one. This function works with both the main and front cameras.
Google did not go into technical details for the photography, but it is already known that in Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL a camera with a lens with aperture f / 1.8 is installed. As mentioned above, DxOMark specialists evaluated the camera of new smartphones and known for its best on the market, putting 98 points.
Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have a top-of-the-line “stuffing”. They have an 8-core Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64/128 GB of internal storage, depending on the version. The battery capacity of a conventional Pixel 2 is only 2,700mAh, and the PIXEL XL 2 version is 3,520 mAh. Both devices support fast charging and are equipped with a single symmetrical USB Type-C connector.
