Alleged Google Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL screen protectors surface online

Could these be the screen protectors of the Google Pixel 2 smartphones?

    We have been coming across several rumors and speculations regarding the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones those are slated to be launched on October 4. Earlier today, we saw that Google could be prepping an iPhone X rival allegedly dubbed Ultra pixel with an almost bezel-less design and a dual camera setup.

    With four more days left for the launch of the second generation Pixel smartphones, we have got an idea of what could be the front design of these smartphones. We say so as a few photos of the alleged Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL screen protectors have been leaked online via Slashleaks. Though the leaked images come from a tipster with a reliable track record, we are skeptical about the authenticity of the same as these screen protectors have large bezels at the top and bottom, especially that of the Pixel 2.

    Both the screen protectors do not tip at the presence of a bezel-less design and an edge-to-edge screen on these upcoming Pixel smartphones. Given that this feature is a standard one that we have been seeing on high-end and flagship smartphones launched this year, we have our doubts regarding the same. Also, there appear to be large front speakers occupying the top bezel.

    From the existing rumors, we believe that the Google Pixel 2 might arrive with a 4.97-inch FHD 1080p display while the Pixel 2 XL might boast of a 5.99-inch OLED QHD 1440p display. The larger model among the two is said to arrive with a taller and bezel-less screen. Both the smartphones are said to feature dual front speakers and squeezable edges as the HTC U11. Also, there could be the always-on display feature. The leaks and rumors have tipped that these Google smartphones will not have a 3.5mm audio jack on board.
