This is the 2017 Google Pixel with large bezels

Similarly, the fact that the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL may ditch the 3.5mm audio jack should excite you rather than disappoint you because the company is making you a future-proof device.

Reportedly, the Pixel 2 is expected to feature a 4.97-inch fullHD display and pack in 64 GB of memory. Even so, both handsets should feature dual speakers on the front - something that older HTC flagships have gotten us used to - although neither will offer dual rear cameras. While the phone does a great job when it comes to specs and features, it lacks in a few other areas, where the nearly year-old Google Pixel XL even outshines it in some aspects.

Numerous real-life images depicting a protective case for the upcoming Google Pixel XL 2 appeared online on Friday, having originally been shared by a Reddit user who bought one of many unofficial cases for Google's upcoming flagship that have already been listed online.




Leaked Pixel 2 renders (Credit:Evan Blass/VentureBeat) But in the case of the smaller Pixel, expect the same old same old, according to Evan Blass in a report posted to VentureBeat. So there's some room to believe that the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL2 will have a different look and feel to them.

This is kind of an obvious expectation given that the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are upgrades to the 2016 models. Lately, lots of battery life-related issues have been popping up, which only but suggest the phone is indeed aging after being around for close to two years. There could also be an addition of stereo speakers instead of the 3.5mm headphone jack. If you can recall, the Google Nexus family was among the first handsets to do away with the traditional microUSB port in favor of USB-C connectivity.

Google will soon be releasing Android O, the next major version of its ubiquitous operating system. Last time we talked about the Galaxy Note 8 was when an image was leaked earlier this week. And yes, it does indeed look very much like last year's Pixel, only with a couple of design tweaks, a feature addition or two, and a feature subtraction.
