RUMORS OF GOOGLE’S iPHONE X KILLER
Google’s Next in line smartphone might be an iPhone X killer.
WHAT IS GOOGLE UPTO?
Not even a month has passed since Google launched Pixel 2 and 2 XL and it has already started working on their next-gen smartphones. Google is planning something big, given the secrecy of the upcoming devices.
Google mocked the audacious act of Apple of removing the 3.5 mm jack but followed the same trend. Google later explained that they want to produce all screen phones and this is the motive behind removing the 3.5mm jack. This indicates that next year, Google might launch an all screen phone.
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT NEXT YEAR?
According to reports, Google is planning to launch three smartphones next year. Two of them will be premium range phones and the third one will come under high end. The code names of the devices are Crosshatch, Albacore, and Blueline. Just like Apple launched three phones this year, Pixel is aiming to do the same in 2018.
We are excited to see the surprise element that you would be added to the Google’s high-end phone to compete with Apple’s iPhone X.
