There are speculations that the Google Pixel 2 is already in development. A lot of techies were impressed with its predecessor and several more are excited to see what the tech giant comes up with next.

Trusted Reviews reported that being waterproof is the most requested feature for Google Pixel 2. Stephen Hall, a Senior Editor at 9to5Google.com, took to Twitter to announce back in January that "waterproofing [is] definitely coming with the next Pixel device."

Other rumors about the Google Pixel 2 release date and specs say that the upcoming device will have a better camera, a price bump and may even have a lower-priced version. It is predicted that the smartphone will have Snapdragon 835 CPU and 4GB RAM.

With the expectation of two models, the Google Pixel 2 release date may bring about two devices: one with a 5-inch screen and another with 5.7-inches. Both screens may have a 2560 x 1440 resolution.

According to TechRadar, Google's upcoming flagship may be available as early as later this year - possibly in October. With the pricing, Google Pixel 2's predecessor started at $649 USD for the regular-sized version and $769 USD for the XL version. The publication noted that the upcoming device may be priced in the same way.

Meanwhile, YouTube channel Concept Creator released another concept video for Google Pixel 2. In the video, it was noted that the device may have a 16-megapixel rear camera and may come in 32GB, 64GB or 128GB storage.

Google Pixel 2 is also expected to have a fingerprint scanner. It is believed to run on Android 8, which may be announced in spring at Google I/O 2017.

Google I/O 2017 will be held at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA on May 17 to 19 this year. It will be a three-day outdoor tech festival. Application for the chance to attend the event ends on Feb. 27.
