So with Apple leading the charge and some rumours that Samsung were initially planning to go that route, it seems Google might be joining the Audio Jack(less) club.

According to 9to5Google, citing information from an internal Google document, the Mountain View-based company could ditch the 3.5mm audio jack in the next Google Pixel phone.


There was no mention of what it would be replaced with, but going by the recent trend, it will surprise exactly no one if it's the single USB Type-C port.

This piece of info hasn't been confirmed by Google and seeing as the Pixel 2 is still in development it could well be an idea that is being used for now and could be changed later.

It will be interesting to see what Google does go with, we do know that it will be a Premium phone as they have announced that to the public.

The Google Pixel which according to some reports was the top phone for the second half of 2016 is coming back!


It also marked a move towaGoogle-branded smartphones along with a move to the ‘premium’ price range. 

Now before we get too excited, there are no official details on the phone and all but at least we know the Nexus is gone and the Pixel is here to stay.


According to a new report by AndroidPit, Rick Osterloh, the Senior Vice President of Hardware at Google confirmed at MWC 2017 that Pixel 2 is coming later this year and that ‘Pixel stays premium’.

He further went on to add that “There is an annual rhythm in the industry. So, you can count on us to follow it” when asked about the announcement and launch date of the successor.

We know nothing more at this point, what we know is that there will be no cheap variant to the Pixel but it remains a flagship phone. 

The Pixel 2 is expected to arrive in the second half of the year with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and probably second generation of Google Daydream View.
