An unnamed source revealed the characteristics of the “reference” Android-smartphone Google Pixel 2-nd generation. According to the informant, one of the models by working name Walleye will have a 4.97-inch screen and a design “almost identical” to last year’s device.
Most likely, the device Google Pixel 2 will get the same wide frames around the screen, and its resolution will be 1920×1080 pixels. Walleye will lose 3.5-millimeter audio port – instead Google will add stereo speakers. It is also promised a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4 gigabytes of RAM and 64 GB of storage on a flash drive. The production of smartphone will be done by HTC.
Another model –Google Pixel 2 XL – Taimen with 5.99-inch OLED-display (1440r) from LG – will have a narrower frame in comparison with the current Pixel XL. It is credited with a two-tone metal panel and a rear glass cover. Instead of a dual camera, Taimen will receive one lens with a dual LED flash.
On the reverse side of the smartphone, there is a large two-section flash, main camera, laser autofocus and another microphone. From the bottom in the center is a round fingerprint scanner. There are no complaints against him.
It is expected that the novelties will be released before the end of this year. This was announced in March by the head of Google’s device development department Rick Osterlo, noting that devices will remain in the upper price segment. Currently, the cheapest option Pixel is sold in the US for 649 dollars without taxes, the most expensive – 869.
The white line is the goal that we are trying to achieve. The yellow line is the actual data of the screen. You can see that we are almost directly above the target curve at values from 0 to 100%, which means that at each value the image is slightly overexposed. The yellow line is actually the average amount of red, green and blue.
The average value of the gamma is 2.18. Judging by the level chart, the blue color is in excess, and the red is in short supply. At a minimum brightness, the temperature is closer to 7600 K, with an increase of 8400 K. judging by the diagram, the obtained data MUCH exceed the sRGB triangle, especially in the green zone. Almost all gray points are located outside the radius DeltaE = 10, which indicates that in gray colors will be present other shades of colors.
The viewing angles are maximal, under a certain slope of the screen the picture is slightly greyish. Almost all parameters of the Pixel 2 XL display are calibrated in the same way as the OnePlus 3T display.In the menu for developers there is a switch sRGB.
The gadget supports fast charging of QC 3.0. Charges up to 100% for 1 hour and 15 minutes. The charge controller is Qualcomm SMB1350, integrated power management circuit – Qualcomm PMI8996.
