Leaked Images Show Google Pixel 2 XL Smartphone With Minimal Bezels
Oct 3, 2017 4:21 am PDT by Tim Hardwick
A day ahead of Google's October hardware event, serial mobile leaker Evan Blass has shared images of the company's new 6-inch Pixel 2 XL smartphone, revealing a display with thin bezels and rounded corners reminiscent of the Samsung Galaxy S8.


Rumors suggest the Pixel 2 XL will feature a QHD+ display with an 18:9 (2:1) aspect ratio, 4GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel rear camera, and front-facing stereo speakers, with a price tag of $849/$949 for either 64GB or 128GB of storage.

Blass also tweeted images of the smaller 5-inch Pixel 2 (below) which, apart from a less impressive 1080p display, is thought to share the same specs as the XL 2. The wallpaper used in both the leaked images shows a vibrant depth-of-field view, suggesting an upcoming "bokeh" camera feature native to the new Google handsets.


According to a source familiar with Google's release plans that spoke to VentureBeat, the new phones will have a pre-order period followed by a staggered rollout, with October 19 for the Pixel 2 and November 15 for the Pixel 2 XL.

MacRumors will have all the details on Google's October 4 event, where the company is expected to unveil a range of products, including new Google Home smart speakers, a new laptop, and perhaps more.

How y’all gon’ say the Pixel 2 XL is ugly when the iPhone X got this big ass forehead

Smh...

Only reason the iPhone X “isn’t ugly” is because y’all want that OLED iPhone and ain’t nothing you can do about the design

Compared to what? Other smart phones that look the same. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But more importantly, its what the Pixel offers, aesthetics eventually wears off and it's all about the user experience.

it's it's... uglier than the notch!


At least this does not result ugly UI design. Look at iPhone X, all these icons just cramp on the top. UI design on iPhone X is nightmare

Seems to.me that you are using any excuse to justify your iPhone X purchase. Why though. If you want iPhone Z just buy. I on other hand, probably will go for this.
