From the released photo, leaked by serial leaker Evan Blass, Google seems to have re-designed the home screen, with the search bar moving from the top of the screen to the very bottom.
Unlike many of this year’s flagships like the iPhone X and the Samsung Galaxy S8, the Pixel 2 XL has bezels, though it still offers a 18:9 display ratio. Both speaker grilles are also on the front of the phone.
Both the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL are expected to come with the Snapdragon 835 processor. The Pixel 2 has a 5-inch FHD display, compared to the XL’s 6-inch QHD+ display.
The remaining specs are similar, including 4GB of RAM, either 64GB or 128GB of storage, and 12-megapixel primary rear cameras.
The Pixel 2 is expected to cost $649/$749, while the Pixel 2 XL is expected to cost $849/$949.
The phones are expected to be announced on the 4th of October, the same day the original Pixel and Pixel XL were announced last year. A mini connected speaker, a laptop, refreshed VR headset, and more devices are also expected to be unveiled that day.
