Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL press render surface

The second generation Pixel phones will be unveiled tomorrow, October 4, and just one day before, official press renders of the phones have hit the interwebs. The renders leaked earlier showed only the back of the Pixel 2 phones, but the latest ones shared by Evan Blass, shows the front side as well.

Like last year's Pixel, the smaller Pixel 2 will be manufactured by HTC and follow the same design languages. The Pixel 2 XL on the other hand is manufactured by LG, and will have near bezel-less design and 18:9 aspect ratio display, but not edge-to-edge screen. In-fact the side bezels are larger compared to those on LG G6/V30 and Galaxy S8/Note8. The renders also show the front facing stereo speakers.

A look at the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL's home screen, the Search Bar has been relocated from the top to bottom of the screens below the icons. Like Android Nougat, the app icons are rounded. Also there is a new widget on the top that in addition to time shows the current weather and user's next appointment.

According to sources Pixel 2 will have 5-inch Full HD display with the standard 16:9 aspect ratio and 2700mAh battery, while the Pixel XL 2 will flaunt 6-inch QHD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 3520mAh battery. Both will feature Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB/128GB storage options, fingerprint scanner and 12MP camera. 

They will run Android Oreo out of the box. Other rumored feature are IP68 water and dust resistance, HTC U11-like squeezable frame called Active Edge, no headphone jack, USB Type-C port and E-SIM slot.

Earlier a report from Droid Life claimed that the Pixel 2 64GB and 128GB models will be priced at $649 (Rs. 42,000) and $749 (Rs. 49,000) respectively, and Pixel 2 XL will cost $849 (Rs. 56,000) for the 64GB model, and $949 (Rs. 62,000) for the 128GB model. Evan Blass adds that the Pixel 2 will hit the market on October 19, while Pixel 2 XL will roll out starting November 15.
