Google Pixel 2 shows up at the FCC with Android 8.0.1, Active Edge squeeze feature

August 15th, 2017   decode   Android 7.1

Following a barrage of leaks about it, Google’s upcoming Pixel 2 has decided to stop by the FCC. The certification process has thankfully resulted in a few screenshots from the phone’s UI, which reveal a few (more) details about it.

First off, the Pixel 2 is made by HTC, as previously revealed by countless rumors (the Pixel XL2, on the other hand, will be LG’s doing). Its frame will be squeezable like that of the HTC U11, though in the Pixel the feature will be called Active Edge. By default this will let you invoke the Google Assistant by giving the handset’s frame a squeeze.
