Google’s 2017 edition leadership smartphones, Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel XL 2 (codenamed Walleye and Taimen) are anticipated to be released in the upcoming months, and have been highlighted in the wild on and off. But, there haven’t been any powerful exposures suggesting at the model or the features of the next handsets. During it was believed (and hoped) that Google would do away with the present Pixel series model, and come up with something creative, leaks haven’t been much beneficial. The new leak although changes that. A latest leak provides a near appearance at the Pixel XL 2, and highlights few significant specifications also.
The leak comes from Android Police, and demonstrates the front and the back of the next Google handset. Unlike 2016, where Google Pixel and Pixel XL were HTC-maded, the Pixel 2 series is anticipated to be made by LG. And the handset does indicates few LG G6-esque appearance. Appealingly, the leak also advises that the phone will advertise the main feature of the present HTC leadership handset, HTC U11 and come with a squeezable body. The correct working stays a secret. The minor Pixel 2 is anticipated to feature a same system and features.
The front of the Google Pixel XL 2 is very much like to the present batch of leadership, with the bezels simplified down. But, unlike Samsung or the rumored iPhone 8, Google Pixel XL 2 will maintain the side bezels, however in a slimmer symbol. The handset will come with a 6-inch AMOLED screen with a larger, taller body in the 2:1 ratio. The front of the smartphone is simple other than for the screen and the front camera, in addition to the earpiece grille at the above. While there is no different button for Google Assistant ala Samsung Bixby, one of the functions of the squeeze is most probably to be to communicate with the colleague.

Talking about the back, unluckily, the half-glass back yet appears to be there. But the size is significantly decreased. Also looked is the fingerprint sensor located right under the glass segment. Google’s ‘G’ logo rests towards the base. The back also discloses a single rear camera lens with a flash, that is a tad unexpected since the Pixel XL is available in a dual-camera system. The leak demonstrates the Google Pixel XL 2 in black color, however there might be another color choices declared.
As advised by earlier leaks, Google Pixel XL 2 will most possibly be powered by a Snapdragon 835 chipset, along with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Though Android Police has leaked various models earlier, this time around, the leak signifies a phone too comparing with the new industry fashion. With few of the main specifications 2017 flagship models (namely the under-display scanner, dual rear camera, no side bezels) lost, Google Pixel XL 2 actually looks at a loss. Even though, it is yet early days, and it might be intelligent to stay like non believer till the original declaration.
