If it turns out to be true, Google will have three new Pixel smartphones this year. According to a YouTuber, Ultra Pixel could feature a dual camera and a fingerprint scanner like never before. The slide apparently reveals these words ‘Ultra Pixel,’ which has led to a widespread speculation surrounding the existence of an unconfirmed Apple iPhone X rival.

We have seen numerous reports in the past suggesting HTC could be the manufacturer of Google Pixel 2. HTC also has a camera technology dubbed UltraPixel that claims to offer low-light photography with a wide range of colours. It is unclear whether Google is referring to the same UltraPixel camera possibly employed on HTC-made Google Pixel 2.

Recent XDA report also suggests Google Pixel 2 lineup is likely to feature dual front stereo speakers, portrait mode in the camera app and always-on ambient display mode. Previous reports also pointed out both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are expected to rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and dual-tone back cover.
