  • Google Pixel 2 Event

Since the Google Pixel 2 is made by HTC, it doesn't surprise us much.

Most notable is the "Active Edge", which, if the code deep dive is correct, could see the Pixel 2 feature flexible edges on its chassis that users can squeeze to activate certain functions.

Talking about the specifications and features of the Google Pixel 2 smartphone, the industry experts are speculating that the smartphone handsets of the Google Pixel 2 will be supported by a Snapdragon 835 processor. While we wait, a new report has confirmed Pixel 2 details including a signature feature.

The Google 7.12 app teardown has revealed a line of code that reads "To change settings for the squeeze gesture, go to your phone's Active Edge settings".

It is also rumoured that Google Pixel 2 smartphones will come in two variants, probably the standard edition and the XL version, similar to what was released a year ago.

The code hints that users can "Squeeze for your Assistant" to access Google Assistant in the upcoming flagship from Google.

Knowing all of this, it's safe to assume that Google will finally unveil the next generation of Google Pixel devices on 4 October. It looks like the company is now expanding this feature with what it calls "Routines" which enable you to perform more than one task with the help of Assistant using a single command.

The app refers to the ability to "Squeeze for your Assistant", confirming clasping the device will fire up Google's AI Assistant.

The code also revealed that there'll be an option to choose the voice of the Google Assistant rather than be stuck with its default voice, and custom "hotwords" can be created to choose how the Google Assistant is fired up beyond the phrase "OK Google". However, it is not known whether Google Bar is a widget or quick search bar that will be available in the notifications area. It seems that Google will be adding "sleep sounds" like meditation, nature, ocean and so on that can automatically turn off the Google Home as the user falls asleep.
