The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are rumoured to stick to single camera set up and sport 12MP camera lens.

It's expected to feature a 6-inch, 2,880 x 1,440 display and slightly slimmer bezels than the original XL, which was widely criticised for its rather plain design. Only time will tell - be sure to check back for all the latest news about the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL at the Google event.

While on the spec side, expect a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, paired with 4GB RAM 128GB native storage with the norm as always with no sd-card support. There are talks that the Pixel 2 could be made by HTC this year while the Pixel 2 XL could some from LG's facility.

Both phones will launch at 5pm United Kingdom time on 4th October. Both the models are expected to be equipped with a 12-megapixel rear camera, and feature stereo speakers on the front.

Oh no! Google Pixel 2 have big fat bezels.


The trusted leaker, Evan Blass today leaked a few high-resolution images of both the smartphones. So, it suggests that Google has also ditched the audio port. With just a day left for the launch event, the official press renders of the Pixel 2 smartphones have hit the web.

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 Pixel 2 XL (seen in the featured image) takes a more Galaxy S8-style route, delivering trimmed borders with curved corners as well. There will also be some new new features like a squeezable frame and a new option to always listen for music in the background and display song information on the lock screen.

Google is expected to launch the Pixel 2 on October 19th and the Pixel 2 XL on November 15th, with pre-orders coming before those dates. According to Droid Life, the Pixel 2 may come with a price tag of $649 and $749 for the 64GB and 128GB models while the Pixel 2 XL may cost $849 and $949 for the same storage variants.
