Google Pixel 2 Launched But No Much Difference With Its Predecessor

As expected, Google yesterday launched its second generation of the Pixel smartphone, this time around simply known as the Pixel 2.

Though with much expectations from the first Pixel fans, but what seemed almost like a deja vu device was nearly replicated in the Pixel 2 without much difference from the 1st itinerary device  and thereby producing some sort of a bit disappointment to the awaiting fans.

Simply put it this way, if not for the few tweaks, one can easily mistake a Pixel 2 device for Pixel and vice versa.

In fact there are only about 4 little noticeable adjustment on the Pixel 2 away from the first Pixel and the first one being the new Snapdragon 835 chipset; secondly the primary camera that now features an OIS to improve the 12MP shooter; thirdly is the increased 64GB internal storage for the main device and finally the new Android 8 Oreo OS that the Pixel 2 has just introduced, which was even well expected from onset.

Looking at another little noticeable change from the battery side, we will say that it is more of a downgrade on the Pixel 2 side as the battery capacity was slightly reduced from 2770mAh on the first Pixel to 2700mAh now on Pixel 2.
