Google’s Official Phone May Have Better Software Than Your Samsung Galaxy
Google’s upcoming October 4 event is expected to bring, potentially, the most important Android smartphone yet: an official Google phone. And the folks at VentureBeat claim to have an early look.
Google generally focuses on refining Android’s software while hardware makers worry about building the perfect phone. Handset manufacturers like Samsung, LG, Motorola and more are able to put Android on their devices, alleviating worries of creating their own OS like Apple. Though with Google likely getting serious about hardware, the search company is expected to put out an above-average phone that would ideally be the best to own. VentureBeat claims that this mythical Android device, likely called the Google Pixel, will ship with a 5-inch screen, quad-core 2.4 GHz 64-bit processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 12-megapixel camera, and a 2,770 mAh battery. The larger Pixel XL will offer a 5.5-inch screen with a 3,450 mAh battery and QHD (1440p) display. In comparison, Apple’s latest iPhone 7 Plus comes with an A10 processor, 32 GB of storage, two 12-megapixel cameras, 3GB of RAM, and a 2,900 mAh battery.
