The specifications, features and prices of these smartphones are compared. If OnePlus sticks to its 2016 schedule, we should see the new OnePlus 5 in June while the Google Pixel 2 will be among the last of the year, probably coming in October 2017. Both gadgets are thought to be the best ones which their makers could ever develop.

Details about the Google Pixel 2's release date are still murky while the Samsung Galaxy S8's unveiling is already set for March 29. Samsung is especially keen on getting it right with its new offering after the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. Like the current Pixel and Pixel XL, the 2017 Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will come with the successor to Android Nougat out of the box, which should be Android 8.0. For example, Samsung Galaxy S8 is known to preserve the headphone jack. Some may say that Google might manage this change better than Apple did.

The Galaxy phones are pricey, and both the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus won't be any different at all. A 4000 mAh battery will power the device that will feature a glass and aluminium body.

However, there are rumors that Google is looking into Intel chipsets for its flagship as well although there is not enough information about that yet.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is known to be equipped with a dual camera setup.

Rumors and leaks published online revealed that the upcoming Galaxy S8 will feature high-end specs, like 5.8-inch Super AMOLED QHD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor only for the USA market, 12-megapixel primary camera, 8-megapixel selfie camera, base model with 64GB storage (double the Pixel's base model storage), 3,000 mAh battery, and others. Nevertheless, the standard model is bound to be outfitted with a second front camera which will be used for iris recognition purposes. Unfortunately, there are no sufficient data regarding the imaging of Google Pixel 2. All we know from developers is that Google's new smartphone will receive an upgrade for this feature.

The company already has numerous fans who loved the 12.3-megapixel camera of the first generation. Customers are likely to be pleased with such a well-equipped camera this time, too.
