Google has announced the second generation of its venerated Pixel handsets, the Pixel 2 and another higher version, the Pixel 2 XL.

Company has not let these two compete with specifications, rather this search giant believes the software and redefined design will attract the customers. These two Pixels will abandon the 3.5mm headphone jack on its smartphones. Instead, users will need to connect their analog headphones using the bundled 3.5mm USB-C adapter.

The Pixel 2’s cameras have upgraded, with the primary lens packing a 12.2-megapixel sensor with a f/1.8 aperture and OIS. This lens will be coupled with Google’s computational photography smarts to offer a variety of features that other manufacturers need two distinct lenses for. That includes portrait mode on both the front and rear cameras and smoother video thanks to a combination of optical and digital image stabilization.

Both handsets are water and dust resistant to IP67 and fast charging, with the company promising that 15 minutes of charging will give you seven hours of life.

As for specifications, the Pixel 2 is packing a 5-inch AMOLED screen with a FHD resolution (1,920 x 1,080) while the XL  has jumped to 6-inch QHD+ pOLED display (2,880 x 1,440). Inside there’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 paired with 4GB RAM and either 64 or 128GB of storage. The Pixel 2 handset is has a 2,700mAh battery while the Pixel XL 2 has a whopping 3,520mAh battery. As for software, the device will also ship with Android 8.0 Oreo, contrary to some rumors that it would arrive with 8.1.

The Pixel 2 has also cribbed the HTC U11’s squeeze-sides feature, letting owners pinch the bezels of the device to activate Google Assistant. You can also summon Assistant during your commute simply by declaring that you’re about to drive home.

Google received plenty of praise for the Pixel from everyone except the people who actually wanted to buy one. That’s because the company has struggled to produce enough devices to cope with demand, distressing many in the Android faithful.

The Google Pixel 2 will launch in three colors: Kinda Blue, Just Black and Clearly White, while the XL only two color versions either Just Black or Black and White. Pricing for the smaller device with 64GB memory begins at $649, while the XL will initially set you back $849. Pre-orders has already started, with every user who does pre-order getting a Google Home Mini as a sweetener, although there’s no information yet when these phones will actually ship. The company has announced that it has Verizon on hand as a launch partner, and you’ll also be able to buy it on the company’s own Fi network.
