What’s the Difference between the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL?
Google announced two devices last week which include the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The standard Pixel 2 gets a similar design to last year with large bezels at the top and bottom of the phone. It also features a 5-inch HD AMOLED display.
The larger Pixel 2 XL gets a slightly updated design with reduced bezels and an almost edge-to-edge screen. This means Google has managed to squeeze a larger 6-inch QHD+ OLED screen into the phone without increasing its overall size.
What’s New in the Latest Pixel Phones?
Both devices get a number of improvements over their predecessors. These include a faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, water-resistant design and an always-on display. Google is also boasting that its camera is the highest-rated on a smartphone camera, with a DxOMark Mobile score of 98.
Both the front and rear cameras are also able to add depth of field focus via some clever software – something most other smartphones need dual-lens cameras to achieve. There’s also a fast charging battery which brings seven hours of playtime from just 15 minutes of time in the plug.
Finally, Google has added squeezable sides to the Pixel 2 which can be used to take selfies and summon the clever Google Assistant.
