This features displays time, date, email and text message notifications and reminders on the screen without touching or waking the pixel 2. For example, if you are playing music, the pixel 2 can detect the tune of the song and display the tune that’s playing on the always-on display, without the use of internet connection as it fetches the data from the device database of the music.
GOOGLE PIXEL 2 DESIGN
The Google pixel 2 comes with full metal finish with the touch of a glass at the top of the rear of the phone, where the camera and flash are located. However the biggest change is the removal of 3.5mm headphone jack. Which means that either we have to use a set of BLUETOOTH headphones or a type C USB connected headphone?
The Google pixel 2 has a centralized fingerprint scanner which is claimed by Google as the fastest one on any phone.
It’s also dust and water resistant, which means the phone can take a deep sea dive without struggling with the specified conditions.
The Google has changed the location of the speakers by shifting the speakers to the front, which provides better audio experience. The Google pixel 2 comes in 3 color variants, just black, clearly white and kinda blue.

GOOGLE PIXEL 2 CAMERA
The Google pixel 2 has a 12MP rear camera with OIS(optical image stabilization) along with the combined feature of HDR. The Google pixel 2 has an amazing 98 DxO score, which is the highest score by any Smartphone till date.
