The Google Pixel 2 XL phone might debut some significant changes to the presentation of the Android OS, judging by a newly-leaked image. Excitement around the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is at an all time high. The Google Pixel 2 XL will have a display of 5.99-inch with 2K resolution while the Pixel 2 will have a 4.97-inch panel and settling with a resolution of 1080p.
The leaks that have emerged so far give us a good idea about the two phones and what to expect from them. Even so, the near-bezel-less, round-cornered screen is obviously visible, as is the fact that the phone has power and volume buttons on the right side (similar to the Pixel XL from last year). Previous reports have claimed that Google has been developing a new operating system called Fuchsia that is being designed for "modern phones and modern personal computers".
Dual-camera setup is that aspect of the phones we aren't sure about.
Google's latest hardware event is nearly here, and it's slated to be a big one. The first is the iPhone X - the special anniversary edition of Apple's smartphone lineup, complete with an 18:9 display, dual rear cameras and Face ID security.
It's smart voice assistant season, with Amazon introducing a whole bunch of new Alexa and Echo devices. The Pixel 2 XL is also expected to come in "Just Black", but may also be available in a black and white model, whose name has not been revealed. Should there's a single thing Home could use, it's a device with a better sound - most especially with Apple's Siri-powered HomePod on the line and set for a released by the end of 2017. The company hasn't made mention of the exact availability and shipping date. This page is being regularly updated with new information - stay tuned for more details.
Many people were disappointing about the lack of waterproofing on last year's Pixel models, and Google is expected to address that shortcoming this year. We'll have more clarity on the matter later this week.
