Let us first talk about the new look of the Pixel Launcher, which is said to debut with Google's new devices next month. We've already seen what Apple has to offer, and now we're going to get a look at what Google has been cooking up in the Pixel world. The new smartphones will be direct successors of last year's Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL.

Next up is the anticipated Portrait Mode, which is surprising as the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have been spotted sporting just a single camera on the rear side. Last year's Pixel and Pixel XL were highly praised for their excellent cameras and super fast and bloatware-free operating systems; however, they weren't the most lovely smartphones, lacking now-common features like infinity displays, curved edges. While this does not necessarily confirm the wireless charging feature on the new smartphones, but this could be the company's positive step forward towards this technology.

There are not many secrets surrounding Google's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL handsets, both of which have been subject to numerous leaks and rumors the past several months. Unlike that third-party app, the second-generation Pixel phones will listen for music being played and automatically fire up its Music Recognition feature on the lock screen. There will also be an Always-On Ambient Light Display, which is now a part of AOSP root package for Android Oreo and can be enabled on the devices running it. In the Google Camera app, a new feature can focus on a person in frame and then blur out the background to produce a live portrait. Both Pixel 2 smartphones will carry the new Android O software, too. This would be a feature that you can disable but is to your liking.

While the previous leaks have also pointed out about the tentative pricing of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, these new insights give more details about these devices. And yes, it's been confirmed that both phones will have that audio feature.
