The Pixel 2 and 2 XL that are expected to arrive on October 4 will launch a new bokeh effect through software without dual camera.

New rumors about the launch of the two Google phones expected for next October 4 come to light. This time Pixel 2 and 2 XL would get some software improvements with which they would seek to be more competitive in the Android world.

While in our Android Update podcast we have released the most anticipated technical features of these two devices, the fact is that 9to5Google quotes XDA-Developers and an Android Police publisher for their recent revelations about a handful of news from the new phones.

Pixel 2 will have a redesigned Pixel Launcher and a portrait mode

On the one hand we would have a new Pixel Launcher that would place the search bar just above the Android navigation buttons, and on the other a completely redesigned Google home page.

While it is bad news that the two phones have a single camera, unlike the Nokia 8, the Galaxy Note 8 or the LG G6 – phones that will compete in stores – the fact is that Google is clinging to the software improvements to bring us the portrait mode experience. This will allow us through the Camera application to have the possibility to separate the protagonist from the image of the rest of the photograph using software, achieving a computerized bokeh effect.

Reports from the sources have also released a new music recognition feature. In this particular case the software would always be listening, and could show you the artist and album title on the locked screen. This would be a feature that you can disable but is to your liking.

A new detail could be the incorporation in the Pixel 2 XL of double stereo speakers in the front of the equipment, something that had already heard would have the Pixel 2.

A CNET en Español team will cover the October 4 event of Google, which in addition to leaks will not only have the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, but also new Daydream View glasses, a Google Home Mini and even a new Pixelbook.
