A fresh 2nd Gen Pixel leak just came in & it gives us the best look yet of the upcoming Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL. These renders look kinda familiar with some of the earlier leaks & also breaks some of our expectations. Have a look at the Pixel 2 XL & the regular Pixel 2.
Pixel 2 XL (White & Black)
Pixel 2 (Kinda Blue, Black & White)
So, if these renders are exactly what we’re going to see from Google Pixel 2 line up on October 4th, a couple of our expectations die. These include,
- Dual Rear Cameras on the Pixel 2 XL
- An 18 : 9 Screen as in the similar looking early renders we have seen a regular 16 :9 screen thick bezels in the front.
If you’re not aware, the manufacturers for the Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL are different. The Pixel 2 will be manufactured by HTC while Pixel 2 XL will be manufactured by LG. As far the pricing goes, the same leaks claim that the Pixel 2 will cost around $649 (for 64GB) & $749(for 128GB) while the Pixel 2 XL will cost around $849(for 64GB) & 949(for 128GB). The SOC will be the same in both devices. Both will be powered by the Snapdragon 835.
But, if this is true then the design will again be the worst among the top-end flagships of 2017. But here’s the thing, if the devices are coming from different manufacturers, how can the design be almost identical ? So, if Google is not pushing this complete design thing, we may still have some hope for the Pixel 2 XL. Let’s wait till October 4th to confirm that.
Anyway, what are your views on the Pixel 2 series ? Definitely let us know in the comments section right below this article !
