Some Pixel 2 and 2 XL owners are noticing odd sounds coming from their phones. This might sound a bit early, but we already have the first details of the 2018 Pixel devices.

Google is having a rough time of it with its new Pixel smartphones, following on from the equally bad experience it had with the well-reviewed, but lacking in sales, first edition Pixel a year ago. Droid-Life points that the source referred to the trio as Pixel devices. Two of these devices are said to be premium one while the third one is rumored to be the high-end device.

Droid-Life reports that Google is working on three Pixel devices for 2018 reportedly codenamed "crosshatch", "albacore", and "blueline".

Additionally, the report notes that "crosshatch" was mentioned in a comment on an AOSP listing in reference to Pixel devices which does raise eyeballs.

NPS Proposes Doubling Glacier Park Entrance Fee to Cover Maintenance Backlog
The National Parks Service says many of America's most iconic spots are seeing more wear-and-tear on their aging infrastructure. The proposal in question wants to raise peak-season entrance fees at the 17 most popular national parks (that includes RMNP).

The investigation follows Google's acknowledgement that it may introduce new software to respond to users' concern about a blue tint to the Pixel 2 XL's 6-inch screen.

From the looks of it, Google may do something increasingly popular: set aside the best features for the larger Pixel 3 device next year, to paraphrase something that Google said during the Pixel 2 launch about Apple's 2017 iPhone lineup.

It also gives Intel leg up in the smartphones and devices segment, where it has an extremely weak presence at the moment and has to face the likes of Qualcomm and MediaTek. We do not want you to get your hopes up yet and it is recommended to take the information with a pinch of salt. It could the next generation of devices that Google is working on or it could the leftover devices that Google scrapped.
