Google Pixel 2, codename Taimen, is now spotted in Geekbench. Google Pixel, the phone made by Google, was an excellent initiative by Google to make a perfect smartphone. But people were not fully convinced by its design and price. Therefore, there was a need to introduce the second generation device of Google Pixel. Recently, a Chinese website (Anzhuo) has pointed that Google is working on Google Pixel 2 which will fix all the weaknesses of the original Pixel device.
The recent renders of Google Pixel 2 indicate that it will have a completely redesigned glass panel at the back. It will be slimmer and will have flat frames with round curves. The renders confirm that it will have fingerprint sensors at the back (just like before) and USB Type-C port at the bottom. As of now, there is no official confirmation on the hardware specifications of the device, but it is expected to come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 So and Adreno 540 GPU. Last year’s Pixel device was packed with Snapdragon 821 and Adreno 530 GPU.
