Google's brand new Pixel 2 also came with a new version of Pixel Launcher and if anyone of you was hoping to get their hands on that kind of UX, your prayers have been answered. We speculated that this feature would go live in Android 8.1, but the devices expected to launch with this expected maintenance release-the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL-launched with the current SDK version 26 (Android 8.0). Some of the interesting features in the camera app include Motion Photo, Face Retouching and Portrait Mode along with some minor additions. The biggest change is a Google Search bar at the bottom of the screen, and a new Glance widget.
Of note, there are now two new versions of the Google Camera app floating around in the world. Pixel users enjoy unlimited cloud storage for their photos in the original format, but with the new Pixel 2, it was confirmed that the unlimited* storage will end in 2020.
Users that opt to use this launcher on a non-Google smartphone should know that they'll not immediately have access to the Google Assistant homepage. As such, I recommend you take all caution when deciding whether or not this piece of software is meant for your device - or if you're going to risk it all to run with the newest in new.
One of the Pixel 2's top features is its camera, which scored an unprecedented 98 out of 100 from the camera quality testers at DxOMark. The only difference here is that Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL users aren't getting lifetime unlimited photo/video uploads in original quality, and instead, they have to settle with uploads in high-resolution.
