Google Pixel 2 features squeezable edges

Posted August 16, 2017

The Google Pixel 2 has received certification from Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. The rumor mill has been claiming that even though the Google Pixel 2 will be assembled by HTC, it will be sold as a Google product. Google is working on bringing always-on functionality to the Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL as well.

As per the latest reports, Google Pixel 2 series, like its predecessors, is coming in two variants.

To make things more confirmed, the alleged Google Pixel 2 pass through the FCC, which is usually the last stop before the handset is officially announced. These included the HTC U11-like Edge Sensors for Pixel 2.

An early goal for City could really fray the nerves, but if Brighton score first then it could get very interesting. Solly March was the only Seagulls player who looked to have any initiative about him.

Storage is listed at 50.66GB free when 21% is used, revealing a likely 64GB capacity. The Pixel devices should be the first to run Android 8.0, giving Google an edge over its competitors.

The FCC Listings point out that the phone would feature squeezable edges, here known as "Active Edge" technology. Apparently, there's the number 8998 in the baseband, which all but confirms Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 or the much-talked about Snapdragon 836 will be the one running the show.

Active Edge settings live under a new "Languages, input and gestures" tab in Pixel 2's system settings.

Eagles' slot receiver Jordan Matthews has been traded to the Buffalo Bills for cornerback Ronald Darby . The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder had 225 receptions for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Previous reports had suggested that the squeezable edges will only be present on the bigger Pixel 2 XL, but it appears that the smaller model will also get this feature. The device's thick bottom bezel will be home to a dual front-facing speaker for richer audio playback. HTC's squeezable frames come under the "Languages, input & gestures" menu and its skills are now limited to launching Google Assistant. This year as well, the Pixel devices are expected to debut in October. Android Police posted a rendered image of the Pixel XL 2, and the smartphone is pegged to sport a 6-inch AMOLED display made by LG with an aspect ratio of 2:1.

Leaked photos of the handsets have pointed to the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack and an overall design similar to the first-generation Pixel.
