Google Pixel XL 2 Design Revealed in New Render

Google Pixel XL 2 Design Revealed in New Render

Recent rumors have unfolded that the Google will be released only two Pixel phones this year. The upcoming Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL smartphones are codenamed as Walleye and Taimen. The latest information has revealed that the Google Pixel 2 is being built by HTC whereas LG is building the Pixel XL 2. Today, a reader of the Pixel XL 2 phone has surfaced to reveal its appearance.

The 2017 Google Pixel XL has been released by Android Police and the publication has given this render a rating of 8 out of 10. Hence, the actual device will appear slightly different from what has been revealed through this render.

The Google Pixel XL 2 is said to be packed with a 6-inch AMOLED screen that will be delivering an aspect ratio of 2:1. The screen can be sporting slim bezels around the display. The display of the Pixel XL 2 in the render reminds us of the Full Vision Display available on the LG G6.

The display appears flat but the glass present over it is curved at the right and left sides. It is not like the bezeless screens available on Essential Phone or Xiaomi Mi MIX. The rear side has the two-tone design with the upper made seems to be made up of glass. A LED flash and a large-sized camera sensor can be seen at the top-left corner.

In the original Pixel XL, the fingerprint reader is included in the upper glass window. However, the successor seems to feature it below the glass window. The rear panel does not feature any visible antenna bands.

This render does not confirm whether the Pixel XL 2 has a 3.5mm audio jack or not. However, rumors have said that the Google may ax the standard audio jack from the upcoming Pixel phones. The publication claims that Pixel XL 2 may feature a squeezable pressure-sensitive frame like the HTC U11’s Edge Sense function. By squeezing, users will be able to access various actions such as Google Assistant.

Mid-Tier Project Fi Smartphone Coming This Year

Mid-Tier Project Fi Smartphone Coming This Year

Currently, only the Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, and the Nexus 6 are Fi-compatible and most of them are just out of reach for many, financially. And the cheapest of the bunch, the Nexus 5X, is quite dated already, making it a bit unattractive to buy as a new device as well as slightly harder to find.

But now, the company has teased that a mid-tier device compatible with Project Fi will be released later this year. Whether that device will be a mid-tier Pixel is unknown but also highly unlikely.

It might be safer to expect that a different partner brand will be releasing the new device, making it the first non-Google phone to be compatible with the Fi network, something that would be seen as a good move to expand the network outside of the Google circle.

Mid-tier” suggests that this won’t be a bottom-of-the-barrel device, yet will still remain a more affordable option than the Pixel, which is currently going for $649.

Google Is Developing A Camera App That Can Capture Better Image In Low Night

Google Is Developing A Camera App That Can Capture Better Image In Low Night

Everybody use a smartphone and always try to find a smartphone which has the best camera for better photography. At this time especially for night time Photography. There are many smartphones are available in the market that can capture a good image in low light but we all need best images not only good images.

Google is working hard for developing a camera app that can capture a better image in low light.

Point Reyes lighthouse at night, photographed with Google Nexus 6P (full resolution image here).

According to “Florian Kainz, Software Engineer, Google Daydream”, said I thought the photo of the moonlit landscape came out well so I showed it to my (then) teammates in Gcam, a Google Research team that focuses on computational photography – developing algorithms that assist in taking pictures, usually with smartphones and similar small cameras. Seeing my nighttime photo (see image here), one of the Gcam team members challenged me to re-take it, but with a phone camera instead of a DSLR. Even though cameras on cellphones have come a long way, I wasn’t sure whether it would be possible to come close to the DSLR shot.

Probably the most successful Gcam project to date is the image processing pipeline that enables the HDR+ mode in the camera app on Nexus and Pixel phones.

Google is working on nighttime photography camera app

He wrote a simple Android camera app with manual control over exposure time, ISO and focus distance. When the shutter button is pressed the app waits a few seconds and then records up to 64 frames with the selected settings. The app saves the raw frames captured from the sensor as DNG files, which can later be downloaded onto a PC for processing. Trying to find out if phone cameras might be suitable for outdoor nighttime photography was a fun experiment, and

Trying to find out if phone cameras might be suitable for outdoor nighttime photography was a fun experiment, and clearly the result is yes.

The Best New Upcoming Smartphone in 2017

Are you planning to upgrade your current smartphone? Wait, and read the latest news and rumor on upcoming Smartphone in 2017.

  1.  Apple iPhone 8
  2. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Galaxy Note 8
  3. Google Pixel 2
  4. Xiaomi Mi6 & Mi Mix 2
  5. HTC U
  6. OnePlus 5
  7. Nokia 8
  8. Sony Xperia XZ Premium
  9. BlackBerry KEYone

The best new upcoming Smartphone in 2017 can change the way of using a gadget. It will offer great performance and longer battery life. Just say thanks to Snapdragon 835 Chipset, it will provide 25 percent faster graphics rendering and half the power consumption compared to the Snapdragon 801. So you can expect 8GB of RAM in Smartphone.

So let’s talk about

1st “Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8Plus” We can expect the releasing date of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus in September 2017.

The rumor is iPhone 8 would feature a 5.8-inch OLED display. The area of the screen dedicated to the apps and interface is expected to be 2436×1125, which makes for a 21:9 aspect ratio, roughly. This could spell trouble for watching content that is 16:9 but would bring the iPhone up to par with competing for Android phones in terms of screen resolution and pixels-per-inch. We’re still expecting the device to feature 2 cameras on the back, much like the current iPhone 7 Plus. The cameras could, however, be vertically aligned as opposed to horizontally, which would allow for more advanced 3D and sensing technology, but more on that later.

USB-C or Lightning?

There are several reasons as to why Apple likely isn’t switching to USB-C all around this year. For one, regulating USB-C accessories is much harder as it is an open standard. Lightning, however, is Apple’s own standard and thus it can more strictly regulate what type of accessories are produced using the connection. Apple also, of course, collects royalties on all certified Lightning accessories.

3D Sensing + AR Technology

Apple’s plans for 3D sensing and augmented reality are a bit more unclear, but it’s widely believed that Apple has a relatively large team working on the technologies.Most recently, it has been reported that the iPhone 8 will feature a revolutionary 3D-sensing front camera that detects depth for games and facial recognition. This type of technology also lends itself to face recognition for unlocking the iPhone, providing another secure biometric way of doing so.

BlackBerry KEYone: Release date April 2017, on sale 5 May

Yes, it’s Blackberry. Blackberry is Alive and it is planning for the comeback.

The new KEYone, which will be available in April, runs Nougat 7.1 and resembles a thinner version of the BlackBerry Passport, retaining the clever under-keyboard touch trackpad to help navigate the screen and scroll through apps.

Although it has a mid-range Snapdragon 625 processor, its £499 price tag is anything but. Then again, those after the KEYone are unlikely to care. The BlackBerry brand elicits a fierce loyalty from its now small customer base.

Google Pixel 2: Release date October 2017

The next Google phone is said to include waterproofing an improved camera that excels with low-light photography. However, the price is likely to go up as a result – by at least $50.We know that the new Google phone will be the first to run Android O, for which the Developer Preview is now available.

HTC U: Release Date 16 May 2017

HTC has sent out save the date emails for its upcoming HTC U (aka HTC 11) launch: it will take place on 16 May. If true, it will have a Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB of RAM, up to 256GB of storage, a higher-capacity battery with Quick Charge 4.0 and a 5.5in Quad-HD screen.

That’s a very high-end spec, so we’d guess that the entry model would have less storage at the very least.

OnePlus 5 release date: June 2017 (TBC)

More exciting for One-plus fans, then, will be the One-plus 5 expected in May/June 2017. It’s slightly later launching than other 2017 flagships could be a huge advantage this time around, meaning it could get the Snapdragon 835 while they are all stuck with the 821. We could also see the 5.5-inch full-HD display upgraded to a Quad-HD model.

Other rumors suggest the One-plus 5 will come with 8GB of RAM, a 21- or 23Mp camera and a 3,500- to 4,000mAh battery with Dash Charge. One thing we’re sure of is that it will run Oxygen-OS, a custom UI that will be based on Android 7.0 Nougat.
