Google Pixel 2, 2XL Renders Leaked

Google Pixel 2, 2XL Renders Leaked

Samsung and LG routinely launch smaller flagships in the first half of the year, and higher-end phablets later in the year. The Pixel 2 is sporting a 5-inch 1080p display like the original, but it is sticking with a 16:9 display. Lack of waterproofing was one of the biggest problems with the phone past year. However, fans are not really impressed with the images of the new Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones. According to leaks, other specifications of the Pixel series will include: Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM, 64/128GB storage and 12MP rear camera. Both or at least the Pixel 2 XL could also go on to feature the "Active Edge" capability borrowed from the HTC U11.

Both phones will launch at 5pm United Kingdom time on 4th October.

The leaked photos confirm that the new Pixel 2 XL will join the 18:9 aspect ratio display bandwagon. There is also the previously reported "Active Edge" feature, that may just be available for the Pixel 2 model.

Photos of Google's Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 have once again appeared online, this time just a day before they're due to be unveiled. While there is no authenticity of the pictures, but Blass is known for releasing correct images, including the ones leaked before the previous Pixel and Pixel XL devices.

The leaked images suggest that both the handsets will sport dual speakers at the front - one above and another below the display. The Pixel 2, on the other hand, might keep those big bezels intact.

The rumored 6-inch Pixel 2 XL display is also going to be taller, just like popular almost bezel-less screens today (Note 8, LG V30, iPhone X). The phone will come out in 64GB and 128GB storage variants.

When it comes to pricing, the phones are believed to be sold for $649 and $849 for the 64GB models of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Reportedly the regular Google Pixel 2 will not feature an 18:9 display and would be pretty much the same as last years' Pixel in terms of design from the front.
