Google Pixel 2 with Snapdragon 835 SoC & Android 8.0.1 Gets FCC Certification



Google will soon reveal the Android O naming along with the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones. However, the company has to officially confirm the launch of the successors to first-gen Pixel smartphones. While there are many leaks and rumors about the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL devices, the Pixel 2 is now spotted on FCC website. HTC will be manufacturing at least one of the two devices in the second-gen Pixel devices. As per the rumors, the Pixel 2 XL will be manufactured by LG. The Pixel 2 is mentioned to come with the model number GO11A.

While Google is expected to unveil the Android O name on August 21st, now we came to know that the upcoming Pixel 2 devices will be running on Android 8.0.1 out of the box. Last year’s Pixel and Pixel also came with Android 7.0.1 Nougat out of the box. However, LG V20 is the first ever smartphone to offer Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. The Pixel 2 device is spotted with August security patch and seems to be an upgraded version of the currently available Developer Preview 4 that comes with Android 8.0.0.

Another new information about the Pixel 2 device is the support for Edge Sense like feature introduced with the HTC U11. The upcoming Pixel 2 device offers the same technology under the new name called Active Edge and the user has to squeeze the edge of the device to do activities like opening apps, capturing images and more. From the screenshots, we can see the device can be squeezed to activate the Google Assistant. Even the custom on-screen navigation buttons are exclusive to the Pixel devices.

Talking about the other confirmed specifications, it comes powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor built using the 10nm FinFET process. It comes included with Adreno 540 GPU to look after the graphics intensive tasks. The device will also pack 64GB of internal storage instead of 32GB as seen on the Pixel & Pixel XL. There is no 3.5mm audio jack on this device but offers the dual front facing stereo speakers. Having said that,  would you be interested in using a smartphone without a 3.5mm audio jack.
