Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 specs leaked online

27 June 2017

Specifications of the upcoming Google Pixel 2 smartphones have been revealed in a detailed post by XDA-Developers.

To start with the larger Taimen, the smartphone will come loaded with a 5.99-inch Quad HD display, which will feature an OLED panel provided by LG, as per a report by XDA Developers.

Interestingly enough, LG is said to provide the display panels for the Pixel 2 line, which aligns with reports of Google investing at least $880 for OLED screens.

Beyond just offering a larger display, it will also sport thinner bezels than what can be now found on the Pixel XL. Walleye will also feature a Snapdragon 835 with 4GB of RAM and an alternate storage option of 64GB.

As usual, the code names for several upcoming Google devices have leaked in recent months thanks to the public Android issue tracker. In its place, Google may incorporate stereo speakers by utilizing the bottom firing speaker and the earpiece. Google fans are now eagerly waiting for the next iteration of Pixel, which is coming out later this year. Google had invested Dollars 900 Million in LG's OLED panels, and this makes sense considering the Pixel phones are expected to use these displays. Both the Pixel and Pixel XL 2 are expected to come in multiple storage variants. The phones are speculated to be named as Pixel 2, Pixel XL 2 and XL 3 and code name must be "Walleye" and "Taimen", the smallest and largest device respectively. Interestingly, this phone's design is said to be almost identical to the 2016 model, including the larger bezels, but will trade the headphone jack for a pair of front-facing speakers.

Reformist Mr Macron has pledged to strengthen European Union ties, stabilise public finances, and loosen strictures on business. The En Marche! party was predicted to secure up to 425 of the 577 seats as the first voting round got under way yesterday.

Also known as "Walleye", the Pixel 2 will be fitted with a 4.97-inch 1080p FHD display, similar to the 2016 Pixel.

The Pixel and Pixel XL were highly anticipated devices, but ultimately they were primarily a first-generation, introductory release for Google, and though they weren't wholly-spectacular, we regarded them a "foundational release". It would mean a lot to us.

As yet there are no details on exactly when these two new Google Pixel smartphones will launch, as soon as we get some more information, we will let you guys know. Rumors have it that it will, in order for Google to compete with other major smartphone making companies such as Samsung and Apple. However, the glass window is placed near the top and not encloses the fingerprint scanner like what previous reports said.

Not to say it won't be a great handset and will be the VR king but I want more.

The source added that Pixel XL 2 would have 4GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
