Over the weekend, a render sources associated with the rumored HTC-made Pixel 2 leaked and gave us a look at a possible design. That design has further been confirmed through two live photos that surfaced on the web yesterday.
As we explained in a post yesterday, Pixel 2 is expected to be more of a revamped Google Pixel than a revolutionary piece of hardware, which is expected to be the Pixel XL 2. Unlike Pixel XL 2, Pixel 2 is expected to keep things the same with a 16:9 aspect ratio with large top and bottom bezels. It will seemingly be made by HTC, who produced last year’s Pixel models. On the other hand, Pixel XL 2 could be made by Android maker LG and feature all the latest trends in mobile technology including the 18:9 (or 2:1) display panel, minimal bezels and a durable build. This phone we believe is code-named ‘Taimen.’
Taking a look at the live photos, we see no headphone jack but a large rear camera lens alongside a dual LED flash, a small rear glass window, a fingerprint reader, and two front-firing speakers. We’ll let you do the remainder of the talking in the comments.
