Google Pixel 2 And Pixel XL 2 Exposed In New Speculative Renders

It's starting to look like Google's upcoming Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones could become some of the most alluring Android phones the company - or any company, for that matter - have released in a long time. A couple of weeks ago, we pored over the details of what was believed to be an accurate render, and today, we see another collection of renders from a party that seems to agree on most of the devices' visual cues.

In the aforementioned post, the design seen was believed to be the XL model, but based on these new renders, it would have actually been the non-XL. The differences are subtle: on the XL, the rear glass isn't as tall, and the camera lens is found to the left of the flash, rather than to the right of it on the non-XL.

These latest renders deliver on the belief that the new Pixels will sport much thinner bezels over the originals, and will see their fingerprint readers positioned just underneath the window, making them easy to find without looking.

As you might expect, Google has not yet provided a hard launch date for these phones, but it seems very likely that we'll be seeing these devices rise to the surface over the next few months. When it happens, they're expected to pack Qualcomm's latest high-end SoC, Snapdragon 835, and perhaps even more interesting: bundle Android 8.0, aka "Android O".
