Mr. Rick Osterloh said that the Pixel smartphone was not a one-time experiment and the successor Google Pixel 2 is in the offing at MWC 2017.
Google’s Rick Osterloh revealed some of new details about upcoming company’s flagship smartphone which is Pixel’s successor.
In an interview with Android Pit, Osterloh also stated that next-generation Pixel devices are on their way, however no time frame of their launch was confirmed. However Rick Osterloh also said-
“There is an annual rhythm in the industry. So, you can count on us to follow it. You can (also) count on a successor this year, even if you don’t hear a date from me now,”
This states that Google will follow Apple’s pattern of launching its smartphone every year. Last year the company unveiled its smartphone in October month and is expected to bring the upcoming Pixel successor during the same time this year as well.
Osterloh also refused all reports of Google Pixel 2 being an medium range smartphone, and said that the device will feature in the premium price bracket. There are also reports claiming that the Pixel 2 will cost even more than the original device. The next offering from Google is expected to bring upgrades and reduce bugs that were found on the first smartphone. The phone is tipped to feature a faster processor and an improved camera.
