According to references found in the system files of the HTC U11, the Taiwanese company may once again lend its expertise to the Pixel line. References to an “S2” and “M2” were found by Japanese blog HTC Soku, which is important because the codenames of the Pixel and Pixel XL were apparently “S1” and “S2.”
The references may suggest the upcoming Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will be based on the U11, a device that features a frame you can squeeze in order to perform certain actions.
While the U11 features impressive specs and a sparkling design, it doesn’t feature an edge-to-edge display, making it feel a little outdated compared to Samsung’s Galaxy S8. As Google looks to make its Pixel devices more competitive, basing the sequels off the HTC U11 may not be the best idea.
However, the HTC U11 does have one thing going for it: It features the market’s best mobile cameras—at least according to DxOMark. Combine Google’s software prowess, services, and an even better camera, and you have a recipe for success.
Hopefully, the design of its upcoming flagship is a little more inspired than the HTC U11. If there’s one thing most mobile enthusiasts can agree upon, it’s that the Pixel’s design left a lot to be desired.
Google is expected to launch its next version of Android, Android O, at the end of summer. Whether or not the Pixel sequels will be ready by then remains to be seen. Until we know more, check out this awesome Google Pixel 2 concept.
