Google’s October 4 event in San Francisco, California is right around the corner. This year, the company is said to launch its most-anticipated flagship Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones alongside some other gadgets and accessories.
Although the launch event is just a day away, some new piece of information has been spilled out, thanks to a well-known tipster Evan Blass aka @evleaks. Blass shared press renders of the upcoming flagship Pixel smartphones ahead of the official announcement, revealing what the devices could look like.
As per the new information, both Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL are expected in multiple colour options. These renders are not at all different from what we’ve seen before. Although press renders clearly show narrow bezels, the edge-to-edge screen remains the matter of imagination. That, of course, unless these pictures turn out to be extremely inaccurate.
From what we’ve heard or seen so far, both the phones are expected without a 3.5mm audio jack. That aside, they are also said to feature front-facing stereo speakers, always-on display and squeezable frame, similar to HTC U11 (Review). Google Pixel 2 is rumoured to sport a 4.97-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) OLED screen whereas Pixel 2 XL is said to carry a 5.99-inch QHD OLED screen with 18:9 aspect ratio.
Internally, they are likely to be powered by Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 835 processor alongside Adreno 540 GPU to handle graphics. They are also said to house a 12MP primary camera and 4GB RAM. We’ll have all the concrete information on both the devices during the launch.
