Google Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL images shown off before official launch

Google's 4th October Event: New Pixel Phones, Speakers To Launch

Google is expected to formally unveil both new phones, along with a bunch of other new hardware, at an event in San Francisco on Wednesday.

Google is hosting an event on October 4 at 9 a.m. The first image was posted with a case on it and while the second render comes without a case. The leaked photos of Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL have been shared on Twitter and fans have been dissing and trolling the new mobile brand.

Blass claims that Google will stagger the release of the Pixels with the former going on sale on October 19.

Citing "a person familiar with Google's release plans", he says the Pixel 2 will be released on 19 October, with the Pixel XL 2 following nearly a month later, on 15 November.

For Pixel 2 XL, the 64GB model would be available for $849 and 128GB for $949.

As far as specs are concerned, Android Authority, says it obtained the details for both phones. The Pixel Launcher interface is also looking mighty fine but the Google Search Bar at the bottom may need some getting used to.

Rick Osterloh confirmed in an interview with AndroidPT that the Pixel devices will be aiming for the top end of the market. While this gives XL 2 a reduced bezel profile, it still falls short of being the true edge-to-edge device that some may be hoping for. However, the bezels appear to be quite thin. We also see that the screen has rounded corner which is the signature design that came with the LG G6, which makes sense, as LG is developing the XL version of the phone.

From the looks of things, you're better off purchasing the larger Pixel 2 XL as it will have several differences separating it and the 2016 lineup courtesy of the latest leaked image.

The home button on the device is missing.

And if that wasn't bad enough for Google he's also published a full set of images of the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2.

Both Android Oreo phones are said to have a 12MP camera, at least 4GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of storage choices.
