    I also hope they launch a new tablet. My nexus 9 is dated and won’t buy a Pixel C since it’s 2 years old

    • SycloneRob

      I need a new tablet to replace my slow as molasses samesung note 10.1 2014 and I am hoping for a new tablet.

    • Andrew Holt

      I’m waiting on a tablet too, and I might use that for all my data and go with a flip phone for calls and texts. It’s more economical then paying well over a grand for the smartphones of 2017.

      I have a note 10 that I want to replace also. The thing is so damn slow! Don’t know what to do with it! aaahhh #FirstWorldProblems

      I’m still rocking my Nexus 7 2013. It’s been great, but starting to show it’s age. I started looking into tablets and damn they’re expensive. I saw the Pixel C and it’s still $$$ and from 2015.

  • Thomas C. Riddell

    no worth it they’ll want too much money for it no phone is worth over 400 Dollars

    • Razvan Zamfir

      buy yesteryear’s flagship for 400 dollars. I do that 🙂 Heck, even the LG6 can be found slightly used for about that much money now.

    and make an update on google now, drains batrery and wayyyy too much notification, can’t get rid of it

    • whyty

      Touch the screen on a empty space and go setting to disable google now,agree it drains battery way too much

    Maybe Google will remember that they once had Qi in their devices and put it back. I’d love to return to vanilla Android, but not by taking a step back in features. Qi and headphone jack are bare minimum requirements. Nexus 4, I miss you!

    • SycloneRob

      As much as I do love wireless charging. And with the note7 debacle gave me the chance to try the pixel and I’m glad I so did. Vanilla Android is so much better then what samesung has done with their bloat. Yes the headphone jack is stupid to remove which for now I plan to stay on my pixel but if the next phone had Qi,I will gladly trade a headphone jack for Qi and would get the new phone. Plus with Google phones I love getting updates every month with no manufacturer or carrier crap.

      Vanilla? Boring as ever. I guess it’s good if all you use a device for is the most basic of tasks. I laugh at these “Vanilla Android” fan boys. I have several devices including the Pixel and I find it rather boring compared to the feature-packed Samsung, LG, and HTC devices. Those great updates that I just gotta have immediately. Some updates have added features that have been around for years on other devices. I can’t stop laughing.

    • SycloneRob

      Hahahaha basic of tasks. There are only a few things that the pixel can’t do due to it missing some hardware ie wireless charging. Samesung sells a lot of gimmicks (bloat) with some good hardware. But that is it,. Oh you want that new OS, well you better shell out for a new phone. This is where Apple has done it right and if Google is trying to follow the same model and keeps up with the pixel line they will have it right also.

      But hey, I guess you hate fast responding even after 6 months of use, monthly security updates and new OS updated in a timely manner mean while the phone is still snappy. To each their own.

    • Razvan Zamfir

      People want vanilla because they don’t like bloat. I agree with that. I also agree most other OEMs put in features that it took Google a long time to officially add.
      Best of both worlds: root your phone and add in whatever suits you. On my HTC I have a bloat-free HTC OS with latest Android and I have everything I need.

      I do remember trying out the Nexus 4 when it was out and I just sold it cause it was lacking features I was too used to on my HTCs – something basic like weather widget/alarm clock for example (yes, I know I can get 3rd party apps for that).

      In any case, I hope google has something to compete with Apple, not because I’d buy Apple or Google (too expensive IMO), but because whatever features these giants introduce will become mainstream afterwards. (though I will still not buy a jackless phone any time soon, if ever).

  • Lion5

    I hope that Google Lens comes around that time. I don’t care for the Pixel 2. I’ll keep my Pixel XL for my secondary device another year.

  • thereasoner

    Should be interesting to see what they’ve got but I’m sticking to my Pixel regardless. My wife is going to get a new device and I will try and talk her into the new Pixel 2 XL if I like it but she’s like one of those Uber dedicated iPhone users who won’t switch from their brand but in her case she’s all about Samsung.

    I’d like for Google to sort their supply issues and offer an explanation as to why if another very limited release to both carriers and a few countries happens again. Or even better, announce the purchase of HTC with the intention of using them exclusively to both produce future Pixels and control their own supply chain first hand for a change.

  • Andrew Holt

    And with how the trend has been going, I expect this to run between $1300-$1600. Seriously thinking of going back to a flip phone when my current phone dies off.

    • Omar

      Go mid-range. Today’s mid-range phones are the flagships of yesterday. And pretty much priced the same.

    • Homer J. Simpson

      I want the Xiaomi A1 Android One here in North America..

  • Omar

    *Just don’t ask for a headphone jack.

  • Omis

    I’m asking for a minor speed increase, a minor camera upgrade, a couple of features that no one cares about or asked for, and a 20% increase in price over the previous year’s model.
