Google created the biggest problem in 2016. Google has begun to actively participate in the hardware industry. At the heart of the problem was the Google Pixel. Of course, Google did not produce directly from the hardware production line, but it was a smartphone that Google made throughout the process. Despite being the first smartphone, the sales volume was enormous. In this controversy, Google’s hardware industry is unlikely to stop. I think the center of this year’s hardware products will be Google Pixel 2. The presentation was long. Let’s see how Pixel 2 will be released in the future!
Snap Dragon 835 with the latest generation three pixels.
The Pixel 2, which will launch this year, is expected to launch two identical products. A 5.5-inch Pixel XL and 5-inch Pixel XL product will be released. However, a product is added to the market. It is expected to be the successor to the Motorola Nexus 6 or the new Google tablet. The month child is known as the successor to the Pixel XL, followed by the 5-inch pixels, the Nexus 6 or the new Google tablet. All three products will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.
HTC to Pixel 2 and LG to collaborate with LG?
Currently, the Pixel 2 is Google’s governing body, and HTC is in charge of production. This symbiotic relationship is expected to continue in the Pixel 2. Google is in the process of selecting a company that will produce the Pixel 3, which will be produced in 2018. LG, HTC, TCL, cool pad, and it is expected to launch in 2018 compete for winning the Pixel 3 production is known to be competing. Of these, LG is the most influential. LG seems to be advantageous because it previously produced the Nexus series. The Nexus 4 in 2012, the Nexus 5 in 2013, and the Nexus 5X in 2015 are designed by Google, and LG and Google have already collaborated. In addition to this, Google invested KRW 1 billion in LG Display. It is said that it invested in a stable supply of OLED panel to install on the pixel 3. From this perspective, it seems that LG will build on the pixel 3.
Why does LG become a Google partner?
Existing pixels were supplied by Samsung Display and manufacturing was handled by HTC. The global demand for pixel phones is 5 million units. We expect more sales than the Pixel 2 sales. The Pixel 2, which expects more sales, has not been able to receive OLED from Samsung. This is because Apple has already partnered with Samsung to improve its OLED screen. Therefore, Google seems to have a strategy of investing KRW 1 billion in LG Display to provide a stable supply of OLED panels. In conclusion, LG is emerging as a partner of Google because it is a company that can supply OLEDs, except Samsung, and can make smartphones, so Google seems to be working with LG.
Pixel 2 HTC production, scheduled for release in September
Unfortunately, for 2017, you’ll have to see Google Pixels made by HTC. The official launch date for HTC’s Pixel 2 is scheduled for mid-September. Pixel 2, presented at this time, does not mention the flaws of the device much and should not cause any problems. Pixel 2, a benchmark smartphone made by Google, has the benefit of being able to see the latest operating systems faster, but I think if consumers continue to suffer from minor glitches like pixels, consumers may be distracted.
