The unveiling of Google’s Flagship smartphone, the Pixel XL 2 is still a couple of months away, so here’s some pixel respite for those craving for a sight of the new Pixel XL .
An exclusive report from Android Police reveals that Google’s 2nd-generation Pixel XL features an LG-made 6″ AMOLED display with a 2:1 aspect ratio with minimal bezel and rounded corners. This gives the next-generation XL a contemporary look. The “3D” glass effect with a flat screen is an interesting feature. Next up are the wide speaker grille at the top and the front-facing camera, however, unfortunately we are unaware of the status on the headphone jack. Google also might have bid adieu to the lower body antenna band, but we aren’t too sure about it by simply looking at these pictures.
In comparison with its predecessor, Google’s 2nd-generation Pixel XL is slimmer,taller and features a fingerprint sensor that now sits below the glass “window” at the top of the phone, as opposed to inside it. Equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC with 4 GB RAM, Google may simply opt for a single lens camera and ditch the dual lens trend. Rumors point to the phone’s squeezable frame which allows the user to interact with Google assistant by squeezing their handsets, much like the HTC U11.
If Google sticks to the past year’s timeline, expect to see its next generation of phones debut in early October. Though a number of questions are still left unanswered but nothing can be said for sure till the 2nd-gen Pixel XL is officially unveiled. This leak will have to do for now.
