Google has released its latest smart phone the Pixel 2, and it’s looking pretty incredible.

The phone will come in 2 versions the 128GB and 64GB for a limited time they’re also offering a free Google home mini for those of you looking to start a “Smart Home”.

The phone sports a 5” full HD OLED display not as good as some of the other phones on the market currently but still a very gorgeous display.

They have also implemented the Always on Display from other competitors meaning you no longer need to “wake” the phone to see the date or if you have any messages etc.

Following in Apples footsteps Google have removed the headphone jack something some will be annoyed about and others won’t really care with the rise of wireless on the move is there much point in having a headphone jack?

The new fingerprint scanner is the fastest on any smartphone to date although with the speeds they are already is it going to make much difference?

The Pixel 2 will be shipped with the latest Snapdragon 835 and being coupled with 4GB of RAM making Gaming, multi-tasking, and just about anything you can throw at it a breeze. The camera has also been updated to pack in a 12MP camera which scores the highest on the DxO mark scoring 99 in photo and 96 in video, meaning it’s the perfect companion for people who love taking scenic and beautiful shots.

The battery also received a welcome updating with a battery that last all day and is able to gain 7 hours’ worth on charge in a mere 15 minutes no excuse now for a dead battery.

Right out the box the phone will be coming with the stock version of Android 8.0 Oreo, highlighting the key benefits of a “pure” android OS. HTC are the makers of the phone and so have integrated the “squeeze” feature found on the U11, the main function of this being to launch the Google Assistant.

With it being the time of year, all smartphone makers are releasing their latest flagships which new phone will you be picking up?
