After weeks of speculation, we’ll finally get to see what Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is all about. On October 4th, Google will announce both phones to the whole world. But if you’re getting impatient, here are the most important specs that have leaked about the phones this week #mobilemagic
According to Android Authority, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will have more differences than just the screen size. The 6-inch Pixel 2 XL will come with a curved QHD screen, while its smaller brother will feature a 4.97-inch FHD display. Both will be powered by the Snapdragon 835 with 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.
The XL will have a screen-to-body ratio of 80-85%, so we can expect slimmer bezels. That’s the trend now, right? That said, Google won’t give in to peer pressure. Apparently, both phones will stick with a single rear camera and one front shooter. The company will throw in an optical image stabilization and their own imaging chip.
The smartphones are bound to be thinner than their predecessors and that makes the headphone jack an inconvenience. So, they’re probably going to go with dual stereo speakers. Another thing they will have in common is a fingerprint scanner and IP67 dust and water resistance.
Unlike Pixel 2, the XL will also be squeezable, like HTC U11 (hey, HTC’ engineers have gone to the Google side with the recent acquisition). You’ll be able to activate the phone’s left side to launch Google Assistant, as well as mute calls and alarms. The bigger device is also going to give you more batter life thanks to a larger cell – 3,520 mAh. By comparison, Pixel 2 will arrive with a 2,700 mAh battery.
What do you think – are these specs good enough to convince you to purchase the new Pixel smartphone?
