There's the same fingerprint sensor as last year's Pixel. Last minute leaks have revealed, what are likely official press renders for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL directly from Google. We have only had one Pixel Day, but the second annual Pixel Day is promising to be a big one with Google gearing up to launch several devices. The industry are expecting to see Google reveal two new handsets that will directly repace Google's existing smartphone lineup: a smaller Pixel 2, and its larger sibling Pixel 2 XL.
The Google Pixel 2 showed in the leaked photo features thick upper and lower bezels, a screen that's more traditionally square than rounded, plus a 16:9 aspect ratio. Overall, the design isn't a dramatic departure from the Pixels of past year, but the Pixel 2 XL deserves more points here because its display looks a little more polished and modern than its smaller Pixel 2 sibling.
The Centrio News reported the specs for the new set of smartphones, which look like some massive enhancements. The new flagship phones are also claimed to sport IP67 dust and water resistance. The bottom visibly houses a USB Type-C port. Both Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will equip a dual-stereo speakers on the front panel.
Speaking of carelessness and accidental product confirmations, Walmart made an even bigger mistake, jumping the gun on Google Home Mini pre-orders. It lists the display as 12.3-inches, down from 12.9-inches on the current Chromebook Pixel.
This upcoming Google's device will be supported by a version of Android and will make it easier to build more applications, for the third party.
Coming to the pricing, Pixel 2 is expected to be priced at $650/$750 while the Pixel 2 XL is expected to be priced at $850/$950.
Both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 and comes in 64GB or 128GB storage. The event begins at 3am so if you decide to sleep instead check in here at Ausdroid when you wake up as we will every single piece of information you may want, including local release information if available. Among those details is the revelation of another Google device supposedly called Clips, a computer accessory of some sort, but one we know nothing about.
