Google is highly anticipated to launch the second generation of Pixel devices known as Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The smartphones have been subjected to various leaks and now set of renders have leaked online, which reveals some key design elements.
The leaks were imagined by Gear, which is basically a series of CAD renders of the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2. The renders were created by Twitter user @OnLeaks, who has a good track record in the past. The report further mentions that the Google Pixel 2 will roughly measure 145.3 x 69.3 x 7.8 mm, while the Pixel 2 XL will measure 157.6 x 76.3 x 7.9 mm. The phones shown in the renders are said to feature minimal side bezels as compared to the original Pixel and Pixel XL.
Interestingly, there is no headphone jack shown in the renders, which could mean that upcoming Pixel phones could ditch the traditional jack in favour of USB Type-C port. The design is line with previous renders that suggested the similar design. There will be a combination of glass and metal body at the rear panel. The right houses volume controls and power on/off button, while at the left, there is a SIM slot. The bottom houses a USB Type-C port, while at the back of the devices, there is a fingerprint sensor.
Previously, some key specifications of both the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were leaked online. To start with the larger Taimen or Google Pixel 2 XL, the smartphone will come loaded with a 5.99-inch Quad HD display, which will feature an OLED panel provided by LG, as per a report by XDA Developers. The smartphone is expected to sport a smaller bezel as compared to its predecessor, the Google Pixel XL. Further, the device is reported to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clocked at 2.4GHz along with 4GB of RAM.
