Google is all set to take the wraps off the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones at an event on October 4 that is tomorrow. With just a day left for the launch event, the official press renders of the Pixel 2 smartphones have hit the web.
The popular leakster Evan Blass has posted a fresh set of press renders of both the upcoming Google smartphone showing their design in full glory. After sharing the photo of the Pixel 2 XL wrapped in a protective case, more photos have been posted on Venture Beat giving us a glance at these smartphones. These press renders give us a good look at both the front and rear of these phones and confirm some features as well.
From the renders, we get to know that the Pixel 2 XL will arrive with front-facing speakers. The top bezel at the front appears to have the selfie camera and earpiece and that at the rear has the rear camera and the LED flash towards the left edge. The image shows the presence of a new Pixel launcher and there is a search bar in between the icon dock and the navigational buttons.
There is another image that gives a better look at the display. The smartphone seems to have a 6-inch QHD display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. There are rounded corners as in the LG G6 making it clear that the Pixel 2 XL is made by LG. The third image of the smartphone shows the black and white variant like a panda. It shows the power button in orange as well.
Talking about the Pixel 2 that is made by HTC, the smartphone appears to flaunt a 5-inch FHD display with a standard aspect ratio of 16:9. There seem to be dual front-facing speakers on board this one.
Both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will make use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage space. These smartphones will be launched with Android Oreo out of the box and feature 12MP camera at the rear. The Pixel 2 is said to be priced at $649/$749 and go on sale on October 19 while the Pixel 2 XL might be priced at $849/$949 and will go on sale on November 15.
The launch event will begin at 9 AM PST (approx. 9:30 PM IST) and Google will live stream the same on YouTube.
