Next week Google is expected to take the wraps off their next Pixel handsets which as far as we know will be known as the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. In terms of hardware, for the most part it seems to be fairly standard but a recent tweet by Android Police’s Artem Russakovskii has revealed some potential additional details.

One of those details, which he claims is from a new source who has apparently played around with Verizon’s Pixel 2, is an always-on song recognition feature. The tweet reads, “New feature that listens to music all the time so if there’s a song playing in the bg it will put the artist and title on your lockscreen.” It sounds like a pretty nifty feature, although we’re not sure it could end up being battery/data intensive.

Other features of the Pixel 2 includes a squeezable frame, which we’ve heard about, and according to Russakovskii is meant to trigger Google Assistant, which we guess is similar to the hardware Bixby button on Samsung’s new devices. 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.

In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but like we said, Google will have the official details next week so check back with us then for the updates.
