    • The upcoming Pixel series is said to ditch the standard 3.5mm headphone jack

Google’s Pixel 2 series leaks are up on the table again. Renders of the next-generation Pixel appeared last week giving a fair glimpse of the upcoming device. And now new renders of the supposed Google Pixel 2 have surfaced on the Internet. While previous renders have shown up the Pixel 2 phone to be having thin bezels new renders, however, refuting it reveals that the handset shall follow a similar design like its previous iteration.

The image which comes courtesy of the popular gadget leaker Evan Blass showcases a phone having thick bezels and looks almost identical to the last year’s Google Pixel. While several major OEMs are now joining dual camera bandwagon, the search giant might likely adopt this feature on the upcoming Pixel phone. The new image (if it turns out to be true) shows the device to be sporting a single lens on the back panel.

According to Evan Blass (via Venture Beat), HTC being directed to manufacture the smaller variant of the two Google branded smartphones, the Taiwanese tech company is said to bring front-facing stereo speakers having BoomSound branding and Edge Sense feature that is prevalent in its flagship HTC U11. The leaker has further said that Google will remove the standard 3.5mm headphone jack on upcoming Google Pixel series.

Apparently, GSMArena also got its hands on two live images of the upcoming Pixel device. The live images also show thick bezels at the top and bottom along with two front facing speakers.  The fingerprint sensor seems to sit outside of it, ‘as a part of aluminium body’. The leaked live images further reveal that the Google Pixel 2 will indeed have a single rear camera module. While this comes as a surprise that Google would seemingly not bring the trending flagship features on its new Pixel series, the question here remains is what iterative changes the company would integrate on the upcoming smartphones to make it compete with other flagship smartphones.
