Rumor has it that the Pixel 2 could feature a squeezable frame function, where you can squeeze the sides of your phone to launch applications like Google Assistant. Basically the Pixel (2017) phones will sport a much sleeker look as compared ot the last years Pixel devices.

There's no word on whether the Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X will also be part of the initial rollout, but given that the 2015 pair has been receiving the beta updates at the same time as the Pixels, they could also get the OTA updates at about the same time, if not a week or so later. Since the update is being rolled out over-the-air, it may take some time before it comes to your device. On the inside, it is powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor paired with 4 GB RAM and 64GB if internal storage which is expandable up to 2TB. The device will also pack a 3,500 mAh battery. For the front, there is a 5-megapixel camera with wide angle lens, f/2.2 aperture, professional and beauty mode.
