Google has more in store for Pixel smartphone lovers. Rumors are swirling that Google has the successors of the current-gen Pixel phones i.e., the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 in the works, which may debut in Q4 2017.

Despite analysts suggesting that the probability of HTC coming up with a new set of featured designs for the 2017 Pixel line is very minimal, reports suggest that Google will continue its strategic partnership with HTC for the development of the former's flagship handsets.

The notion of the Pixel XL 2 and the Pixel 2 getting a revamped design is something that fans would look forward to and hopefully, Google will not disappoint.

We take a look at the rumored specs, features and possible release date for the alleged Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 smartphones.

Specs

Since display quality is a criteria smartphone buyers consider prior to purchase, Google is anticipated to provide a 2K display for the Pixel XL 2 and the Pixel 2.

The Pixel 2 is expected to sport a 5-inch screen and may get upgrades to the 2,560 x 1,440 QHD resolution boasted by the Pixel XL.

Google will possibly keep user feedback and demand in mind and integrate the 2K display in the Pixel 2 as well.

Google is also anticipated to enhance the battery of the next-gen Pixel smartphones so that it fuels better performance and there is less battery drainage. The two smartphones could also get a memory boost and get an upgrade from 4 GB of RAM to 6 GB of RAM.

The camera capabilities of the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 could also get improved and the devices may take the dual-camera setup route like the iPhone 7 Plus. The Pixel XL 2 and Pixel 2 will possibly also bring support for OIS, which will aid users in taking clearer pictures. Chances are pretty high that the upcoming Pixel phones feature tri-camera technology.

Features

With the popularity of VR increasing, it is anticipated that the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will be released along with the second generation Daydream VR.

Reports suggest that Google could possibly introduce dust- and water-resistance capabilities for Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2. The current-gen Pixel XL and Pixel smartphones do not offer this feature and can only handle minor spills and slight rain. Google could not include this capability as it "ran out of time."

As the Pixel XL and Pixel smartphones triggered plenty of excitement among buyers, Google would hope that its next-gen handset can emulate the same. With the alleged specialized features, the upcoming line of Pixel smartphones will likely receive a resounding response from consumers.
