Google is gearing up to launch its flagship phones Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 on October 2. However, like any other company including Apple, Google is finding it difficult to curtail the leaks. In a recent turn of events, Droid Life website published images of Google’s highly anticipated smartphones.
Last year’s Pixel and Pixel XL were made by HTC for Google. Things have changed this time around, as the Pixel XL manufacturing is being handled by LG whereas the compact variant remains with HTC. Going by the images, the rear follows the design language of the previous generation as they look quite identical. There is one notable change as the fingerprint sensor is now placed on the metal panel instead of the rear glass pane. It is also clear that Google has decided not to go with a dual-lens camera setup to catch-up with the competition.
The Pixel 2 XL is rumoured to come in black and white+black combo colour options. This LG made device is said to feature a 6-inch Quad HD OLED display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The Pixel 2 XL could retail for $849 for the 64 GB version while the 128 GB version could cost for $949.
The HTC made Pixel 2 will come with a 5-inch Full HD OLED display. It may come with stereo speakers and always-on display. It may come in blue, black, white colours. The prices may start from $649 for the 64 GB variant and could go up to $749 for the 128 GB version. Exactly the same prices for which the original Pixel was launched at last year.
