Pixel 2 leaks, confirms dual font-facing speakers, no headphone jack

New Information On Pixel 2 And Pixel 2 XL Surfaces Olixar Case revealed the design of the smartphone is Pixel 2

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.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, which are expected to arrive later this year, are some of the most anticipated devices of the year, and the rumor mill is hard at work trying to paint an early picture of what we might expect. However, it's said that the larger, 6-inch Pixel XL 2will have thin bezels, thus likely resembling the device seen in previously leaked renders. The image showed a device with significantly smaller bezels above and below the display, along with some minor design revisions to the rear of the handset. However, when companies like Samsung, Huawei, and Xiaomi are unveiling phones with curved screens and bezel-less displays, Google's Pixel phones simply look... uninspiring.

Despite the massive changes on the front panel, the rear panel will keep a familiar looking design, where a two-tone design will still be present. The top and bottom bezels seem to have been reduced significantly, making room for a huge 2:1 OLED panel, and the back "window" looks more refined.

Since there has been no official confirmation regarding specs of the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 from Google, take everything with a pinch of salt.

There are talks that the upcoming Google phones could be manufactured by LG and are codenamed as Walleye and Taimen.

Having said this, GizmoChina further mentions that users can pre-order these cases at MobileFun, where the images were spotted originally. The renderings for the Pixel 2 are expected to be accurate as well. Similar to other 2017 flagships, the pair will drop the Snapdragon 820 series in favor of the new Snapdragon 835 SoC, but some sections are adamant that the Google phones could be the first to debut with the slightly upgraded Snapdragon 836, just like it happened a year ago when they got the Snapdragon 821 instead of the Snapdragon 820 that featured in many flagships released in 2016. Well, this is not something you can afford to risk with the current pair of Pixel phones.

There's no word yet on when the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 might be officially revealed. The report mentions that the Pixel 2 will be manufactured by HTC, while the larger Pixel XL 2 will be put together by LG.

Perhaps this might be disappointing to some, but it depends on which side of the table you are actually seated. Today, this is becoming a thing as more OEMs are now embracing this technology. VentureBeat was able to obtain an image of the upcoming Pixel successor, and as you can see above, it's clear that Google's smaller flagship this year won't be getting some of the features that are becoming increasingly common among high-end smartphones. Plus, there will probably be even more people disappointed by the Pixel 2's lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack. Still, it's not like the Pixel 3 will come back to the traditional jack, especially since the market trend seems to favor the new USB-C port for audio connectivity. 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.
