Google Pixel 2's squeezable frame 'confirmed' by app teardown

An update to the Google app (version 7.12), unpacked by 9to5Google, has confirmed the Pixel 2's much-rumoured "Active Edge" feature, which will - much like the HTC U11 - add squeeze-like functionality to the Google's Android flagship. This device would therefore be released right alongside the Google Pixel 2 and the Google Pixel 2 XL. The Pixel 2 XL has leaked, however, with pictures of both a black and a white color option, and the Pixel 2 XL name is apparently going to be the official one, too, according to a new report from Droid Life. It also contains some information on the arrival of Active Edge for Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2. This time around, however, the device is being made by LG. A teardown of the app (courtesy 9To5 Google) has revealed some of the new features of the Google Assistant.

The Google Home Mini is said to be coming to the Google Store for around $50 Dollars. Further, there are many other design changes that we have seen just by looking at the images. In fact, we're also treated to images and a few details regarding the Google Home Mini and the Daydream View 2017.

Similar to the Amazon Echo Dot, Google Home Mini will be a smaller version of the company's Home smart speaker. As to its features, it can set reminders, grab news and schedule activities just like a full-size Google Home device. That's $80 more than last year's Pixel XL, although you do get twice the storage in the base model.

The new headset will be available in "Charcoal", "Chalk" and "Coral", which would match the rumored colors for the Google Home Mini.
