Google Pixel 2 Latest Leaks Show Flagship's Best And Worst Qualities
New Google Pixel 2 leaks show two sides of the flagship smartphone - the good and the bad. On one side, the Google Pixel 2 XL seems to come in an impressive-looking hardware. On the other hand, the Google Pixel 2 will likely look different from the XL model which is not a good thing considering the Pixel 2 XL looks great.
A report by "XDA-Developers" cited by BGR says that the two Pixel 2 smartphones will look different from each other because they will be made by different OEMs or original equipment manufacturers. Rumors say that the Google Pixel 2 is being handled by HTC while LG Electronics will be building the Pixel 2 XL.
A previous leak indicated that the Google Pixel 2 XL will come with an all-screen design similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the upcoming iPhone 8. If this is true, LG is creating one good-looking smartphone. The same cannot be said with HTC's Pixel 2, however. It is also rumored that the Google Pixel 2 will lack the traditional 3.55mm headphone jack.
The Google Pixel 2 will sport a 4.97-inch Full HD display while the Pixel 2 XL will come with a 5.99-inch QHD display, according to Forbes. BGR, however, reported that the Pixel 2 XL will have an OLED display instead of a QHD panel. Forbes based its report on a recent leak which shows references to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL inside an HTC U11 code.
The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are expected to be announced come October. Google was supposedly working on three new smartphones codenamed Muskie, Walleye, and Taimen. However, the company decided that Muskie was not worth the effort and was thus dropped from the lineup leaving fans to expect only two Pixel devices this year.
Forbes speculated that these smartphones will likely be the last ones from a major manufacturer to be released in 2017. Google will release the new Pixel handsets after Apple and Samsung does so with the iPhone 8 and Galaxy Note 8, respectively.
