Google Pixel Details Leak Ahead of Launch Event


This makes way for the 18:9 aspect ratio, something the Google Pixel 2 didn't have a year ago.

Google last month bought a unit of HTC that built its first generation of Pixel phones a year ago, strengthening its hardware division. However, fans are not really impressed with the images of the new Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones.

It was rumoured that these new phones would include an updated Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 processor, but Blass says that due to "an alleged delay", both the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will be powered by the standars 835 chip. There are talks that the Pixel 2 could be made by HTC this year while the Pixel 2 XL could some from LG's facility.

The two images depict a display style similar to the one found on the Samsung Galaxy S8, with rounded corners and thin bezels on both sides, with slightly thicker bezels at the top and bottom of the device. Reports suggest that Google may have invested $900 million in the LG Display. However, the phones have been leaked prior to their public unveiling, thanks to popular tipster Evan Blass. However, just before the launch, the press renders of Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL has surfaced online, which gives a final design of the upcoming devices.

With a five-inch, 1080p display, Pixel 2 is the smaller of the devices, featuring a screen whose aspect ratio is the formerly standard 16:9.

To compensate for the lack of a 3.5 mm port, Google will introduce stereo speakers on the phone which will ensure sound is louder as well as well distributed. Apple's iPhone X, for instance, also comes with an edge-to-edge display. They are also expected to see a staggered rollout with the Pixel 2 launching on 19 October and Pixel 2 XL on 15 November. For storage you can choose between 64GB and 128GB.
