The Google Pixel 2 has wrestled back its title of the highest rated smartphone camera by DxOMark Mobile. Their first generation Pixel had blown away the competition last year with a score of 89. It was the highest rated smartphone until the HTC U11, iPhone 8/8Plus and Galaxy Note8 came along.
As of yesterday, the iPhone 8 Plus and Galaxy Note8 were the top rated smartphone cameras with a score of 94. Now both of these dual-camera flagships are overtaken by the Pixel 2’s new high-score of 98.
To say that Google‘s first Pixel smartphone was well-received when it first launched is perhaps a big understatement. The tech world loved Google’s new handsets and now, everyone is looking forward to seeing what the search engine giant has in store for their second round of Pixel smartphones.
At long last, the time has come. These are Google’s brand new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones.

Google’s upcoming self-branded smartphones, the Google Pixel 2/2 XL, will be officially announced on 4 October. Ahead of its big reveal, we now get a full view of the duo thanks to none other than Evan Blass. These are the successors of last year’s Google Pixel/Pixel XL and they are manufactured by HTC and LG. As you would expect, both would be running on the very latest Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
Google’s very own smartphone, the Google Pixel, is getting a new successor early next month. They have just released a teaser video and a registration of interest website which points to 4th October as the launch date.
Google has finally revealed the official name for its upcoming Android in conjunction with the solar eclipse in the United States. Almost 4 years ago, Google had partnered with a well-known chocolate brand, KitKat, for Android 4.4. Now they are doing something similar by announcing Oreo as the latest sweet treat for Android 8.0.
Google is getting ready to launch its upcoming 2017 Pixel smartphone that will run on the latest Android O. A few days ago, Evan Blass, who is known for reliable leaks had revealed a couple of disappointing omissions on the new device. Now a new leak has emerged and it pretty much confirms what was speculated earlier.
The Google Pixel is turning a year old very soon and a new replacement is just around the corner. Earlier last month, we saw what appears to be its successor and it looked pretty good. It had a 18:9 display aspect ratio with ultra-thin bezels as shown above.
Evan Blass (@evleaks), famed for reliable leaks had just dropped more info on the upcoming device and it seems that final product will have some disappointing omissions. Read on to find out what would be left out on the next Pixel for 2017.
Smartphones and virtual reality were not the only things Google showed off at their #madebygoogle event. The tech giant also unveiled a brand new Chromecast, Google WiFi and officially launched the familiar Google Home.
Alongside their brand new smartphones, Google also finally unveiled their VR headset — Daydream View — which is made out of lots of fabric instead of hard plastic, and will work best with Daydream-ready smartphones.
Oh and did we mention it comes with a super accurate remote too?
