Because of a serious leak, we are able to say with 99.9 % certainty that Google will announce the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL (along with different gadgets) subsequent week throughout its Oct. four occasion
When Google’s flagship first launched final 12 months, the system impressed us with its digicam prowess and introduction of Google Assistant (which is now obtainable on a number of Android telephones). Nonetheless, there’s at all times room for enchancment. Beneath is my private wishlist for what I would like within the subsequent Pixel. It isn’t all the things Google can probably add, simply my very own desire.
Within the meantime, tell us what you’d wish to see (detachable battery? sharper show? new design?) within the subsequent Pixel too.
Even higher cameras
Because of the current Pixel leak, it would not seem like the telephones will get twin rear cameras. It is a letdown since it will be the one main cellphone to not have twin digicam capabilities and its single-lens portrait mode software on the unique Pixel wasn’t superb.
However Google could make up for this if it improves the digicam in different methods. Again when the Pixel first launched, it had the most effective shooters round, and I used to be notably impressed by how properly it dealt with low-light environments
Google must make an excellent digicam even higher.
Since then, nonetheless, there have been a handful of telephones that additionally take nice footage in dim lighting, just like the OnePlus 5 and HTC U11. The iPhone eight Plus and eight even have actually robust cameras so Google higher step up its recreation. With this subsequent iteration, I would wish to see the Pixel add optical picture stabilization for video recording, clean out its Lens Blur characteristic for portraits (although which may be troublesome given the aforementioned single lens) and enhance its closeup, macro pictures so that they’re even sharper.
Please Pixel, do not be just like the Apple iPhone and preserve the headphone jack.
Present rumors speculate that Google could go the way in which of Apple and Motorola and drop the headphone jack from its Pixels. I actually, actually hope this is not true. Although ditching it could assist with waterproofing and having a skinny design, I can simply perceive why this could be a deal breaker for some if it had been deserted. I personally do not need to be compelled to take heed to my music with wi-fi headphones give the wired headphones I already love, and I particularly do not need to have to recollect a dongle each time I’m going someplace with my cellphone. It is a characteristic no one requested to do away with, and I would hate to see it go on the Pixel.
What was a nice-to-have characteristic is rapidly turning into a need-to-have for all excessive finish telephones, particularly since many flagships just like the Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy telephones have all been water-resistant for a pair years now. With a purpose to stay aggressive, I hope the Pixel is waterproof, too. It’s going to imply that Google is maintaining with its rivals and you will have further peace of thoughts along with your cellphone now that it will probably endure a dunk underwater.
I do not know if it is precisely kosher to deliver up Nexus historical past since Google desires to differentiate its Pixel line as its personal “factor,” however Google has bought wi-fi charging telephones earlier than with the Nexus four in 2012 and the Nexus 5 and 6 after. So when it removed it within the Nexus 5X and 6P in 2015, it was a bummer. Setting your cellphone down on a charging pad quite than fumbling with a charging cable is fairly handy, and it would be helpful to see the characteristic within the subsequent Pixel. (And in contrast to eliminating the headphone jack, it would not require any kind of dongle to work with earlier chargers.)
Hopefully Google can deliver again wi-fi charging.
And whereas I am wishing for battery-related issues, I would like to see a bump within the cellphone’s battery life. Final 12 months, each Pixel fashions lasted about 13 to 14 hours throughout our lab take a look at for steady video playback. As of late, telephones together with the Galaxy S8, OnePlus 5 and iPhone eight Plus final greater than 15 to 16 hours, straightforward. If the brand new Pixels can clock these instances in, it’d imply fewer journeys to the charger.
Google’s Pixel announcement would be the final main cellphone launch of the season, after Samsung, LG and Apple. To maintain up on the newest information, keep tuned to zarinews, the place we’ll overlaying the Oct. four occasion.
