The Mobile World Congress 2017 is finally wrapping up, and the event was marked by the presence of many representatives of major tech companies . One of them was Google’s newly appointed hardware lead, Rick Osterloh.

The Google Pixel was launched on 20 October, 2016 and since then, the rumors about its successor have been doing rounds. At a round-table, Osterloh confirmed that the Pixel was not a singular experiment, and a Pixel 2.0 is expected. While speaking to Eric Hermann from Android Pit, Ostreloh said, “There is an annual rhythm in the industry. So, you can count on us to follow it. You can (also) count on a successor this year, even if you don’t hear a date from me now”.

This suggests that Osterloh was hinting on the fact that Google might launch the Google Pixel 2 by the end of this year. Google, most likely, plans to follow Apple’s trend of releasing its phones after a one-year time frame is over. Since the Google Pixel was launched in October last year, the second edition of the highly-priced smartphone can be expected around the same time this year. Osterloh, in fact, denied that an “affordable” Pixel will be in prospect. So, we can expect the Google Pixel 2 to be in the same or slightly higher price bracket than its predecessor.

Reports suggest that the Google Pixel 2 will have an improved processor and camera setup. Also, the Pixel 2 will most likely be water resistant and utilise the Snapdragon 835 along with improvement to the display and cameras.
