According to reports, Google is again focusing much on the camera with Pixel 2. The device is being tested at the moment with improved chipsets from 2 different manufacturers. We have also got to know that it will bring a higher price. The company has been testing lower-end Pixel phones which would bring lesser specs with a much lower cost.

Though we learnt that waterproofing will be certainly there, now we got to know that the feature is “still on the table,” which shows that Google is still not decisive about it. Interestingly, it is the camera of the Google Pixel 2 which is likely having the most attention. Google is striving to master low light photography with the next-generation device. In addition, reports say that the phone’s camera will not have large MP size but it will compensate in additional features.
As the phone is still in its early stage of development, it is possible that the news that we are getting may change over time. According to a source, multiple Pixel 2 models are being tested with better chipsets. Besides, MediaTek was at one point joining hands with Google on the Pixel 2, but now it is not.
Another source indicates that Google is testing a “few” prototypes of a device internally that they referred to as “Pixel 2B”, that would be released together with or soon after the launch of Pixel 2. This phone would have a lower price tag and less powerful hardware. In addition, it would focus on different markets. Google’s main objective is to bring the “Google experience and the Google Phone to emerging markets”.
About the price tag, Google Pixel 2 is expecting that there will be “at least” a $50 USD increase in it. And for the “Pixel 2B,” we are expecting it to be cheaper according to what we have got to know through reports.
