Pixel 2 XL to feature Stereo Speakers, Always Listening "Music Recognition"

Differences between Android One and Android GO

Let us first talk about the new look of the Pixel Launcher, which is said to debut with Google's new devices next month. Meanwhile, the larger Pixel model will have the design elements of the LG G6 Android smartphone, this is for the reason that the LG company will manufacture the handset. The new smartphones will be direct successors of last year's Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL.

While it is bad news that the two phones have a single camera, unlike the Nokia 8, the Galaxy Note 8 or the LG G6 - phones that will compete in stores - the fact is that Google is clinging to the software improvements to bring us the portrait mode experience. The ChromeOS laptop hasn't been updated since 2015, and the newly-branded Pixelbook looks to pick up right where it left off. Last year's Pixel and Pixel XL were highly praised for their excellent cameras and super fast and bloatware-free operating systems; however, they weren't the most handsome smartphones, lacking now-common features like infinity displays, curved edges.

One of those details, which he claims is from a new source who has apparently played around with Verizon's Pixel 2, is an always-on song recognition feature. The tentatively-named Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be launched at the event, giving us the newest hardware and software directly from Google.


This feature will resemble iPhone 7 Plus and 8 Plus' Portrait Mode.

It's very likely that the smartphone will have an always listening feature to make automatic Google searches.

The next rumored feature for the Pixel 2 smartphones is what's now being called as "Music Recognition". Those concerned about the privacy will have the option to disable this feature under Settings. Several leaks may have already outed this feature long ago. The phone is also rumored to get the HTC U11 "squeeze to launch" feature that will give you a quicker way to launch Google Assistant. The Pixel XL 2 is expected to cost $850 for 64GB and $950 for 128GB.
