The Music Recognition feature is separate from the Google Assistant but we're guessing the latter will have something similar someday or at least integrate the feature. Meanwhile, the larger Pixel model will have the design elements of the LG G6 Android smartphone, this is for the reason that the LG company will manufacture the handset. Woot has the newest offer on the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, which are now available for as low as $349.99 and $399.99, respectively.

We're counting the days until the 4th of October when Google is scheduled to formally introduce the new Pixel 2 phones, Google Pixelbook, Google Home Mini, and Daydream View.

What Google is trying to imply is that time has come for Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P owners to start looking for a new smartphone. XDA said that its own source independently corroborates most of Russakovskii's claims and it now believes that both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will have these same features. The Pixel 2 is also rumored to have a camera mode similar to Apple's Portrait Mode, but it is expected to be software induced as the Pixel 2 will not come with a dual camera setup.

As for this music recognition feature, apparently, when music is playing in the background of wherever you are, the phone will be able to recognize it, then share details on it via your lock screen. Originally, we heard that both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL would get slimmed down bezels to match the competitive 2017 landscape.

The next rumored feature for the Pixel 2 smartphones is what's now being called as "Music Recognition". This feature will most likely be optional, so those concerned about privacy should be able to disable this. This feature was earlier leaked in July. The Pixel XL 2 is expected to cost $850 for 64GB and $950 for 128GB. Among all of the features mentioned above, Artem also confirms the inclusion of "Squeeze" feature that will launch Google Assistant on the new smartphones.
