  • Google Pixel 2: Revealed in HTC FCC filing w/ Android 8.0.1, 'Active Edge' squeeze feature

The Pixel devices should be the first to run Android 8.0, giving Google an edge over its competitors.

There's going to be two Pixel phones, one smaller, one larger with the smaller one being made by HTC but it's not confirmed who will be making the larger one. This feature is apparently called "Active Edge", and the default action it provides is to launch Google Assistant. They are internally known as Taimen (Pixel XL 2) and Walleye (Pixel 2).

More hints and clues about the upcoming Google Pixel smartphones have made their way on to the web. The Pixel 2 could have the same two-tone metal and glass back like we saw in Google Pixel. In another screenshot showing the device's status menu, the storage section confirms that 50.66GB remains free after filling 21% of the phone's internal memory - a reading that lends credence to reports that the Pixel 2 will include 64GB storage as standard. Google is working on bringing always-on functionality to the Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL as well.

With HTC seemingly looking to put its own spin on an officially branded "Google Phone" this time around, the Taiwanese company has turned to its own flagship smartphone, the HTC U11, for some "squeezable" inspiration.

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.

Under the hood, it will house 4GB RAM, 64GB/128GB storage, a single primary camera on the back with dual-tone LED flash, and the Snapdragon 835 octa-core - Qualcomm's most powerful processor yet. Honestly, this depends on which side of the table you are seated. But the new phone might be devoid of a 3.5mm audio jack port, as Google intends to use the additional space for stereo speakers.
