Courtesy of @OnLeaks and MySmartPrice, we have renders of the upcoming Google Pixel 2 on display here. The video shows off the Google Pixel 2 in beautiful 3D rendering and while it really does look light years ahead of the Google Pixel in terms of design, we couldn't help but notice that it's missing the 3.5mm audio jack. Do take a look at the video above and let us know what you think about this decision by Google, if it really does turn out to be the case of course.

 

Personally, I have never understood the logic behind removing the headphone jack from a smartphone and that is only because there is no logic behind it, just business. It costs next to nothing, doesn't interfere with any other functionality and is something that is preferred by a large section of the customer base. Even if you are all for the "wireless revolution," a headphone jack doesn't stop the smartphone from being compatible with wireless technology or the user from using wireless headphones if he/she wants to. It has more to do with business and marketing than actual usefulness because even if you could shave a few centimeters of a smartphone by eliminating the headphone jack, it hardly matters. Most people would rather have a headphone jack than a paper-thin phone!

There is no doubt about the potential that VR holds for the future of entertainment and now some of the biggest names in the business have joined forces in order to initiate the largest promotional campaign for VR till date. The Global Virtual Reality Association or GVRA comprises of Facebook Oculus, HTC Vive, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Google, Acer Starbreeze and of course, Samsung.



The group will be responsible for developing, as well as setting software and hardware standards for everything related to the virtual reality business. The campaign is set forward to not only standardize and control the VR market, but also to make VR more popular, attractive, useful and consumer friendly all around the world. As most of the major players in the business have now united (barring a few like Microsoft) under one organization, research and development will probably reach new heights faster than ever before. However, it will be interesting to see if they can make the technology more appealing and affordable for the general masses all around the globe.
