Pixel 2 will have a redesigned Pixel Launcher and a portrait mode

He said that he got the information from a "new source" who claims to have had time to play around with the Verizon model of the Pixel 2.

With Google's unveiling event fast approaching, there's a good chance that many of you will probably score great deals on the current Pixel smartphones.

In case you're fuzzy on the technical details of the Pixel line, the smartphones feature either a 5-inch 1080p display or a 5.5-inch QHD display, 2.15GHz qud-core Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB RAM, 32/128GB storage, 12.3-megapixel camera, and a 2770mAh or 3450mAh battery.

There are not many secrets surrounding Google's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL handsets, both of which have been subject to numerous leaks and rumors the past several months. This is similar to Samsung's Live Focus or Apple's own Portrait mode.




No further information was given on how well Google's software solution will be for the Pixel 2 Portrait Mode, but the company is already pushing the boundaries of what software can do to improve mobile photography. Additionally, the smartphone will have an always-listening "Music Recognition" feature on software, which is even not included along with the Google Assistant.

New rumors about the launch of the two Google phones expected for next October 4 come to light.

Also the novelty will receive the recognition of the songs in the background in the manner of Shazam, where the names of artists and track names will be displayed directly on the lock screen. Aside from more smudge marks, this new design will likely enable the phones to support Qi wireless charging. This new Pixel launcher was actually first spotted back in May during Google's I/O conference by 9To5Google. Essentially, this is just a smaller version of the Google Home, which is a multimedia speaker and home AI. This feature was earlier leaked in July.

The new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are both expected to have a squeezable frame feature that's similar to the HTC U11.
