The back looks nearly identical to the back of the purported Pixel XL 2, which means that neither the Pixel 2 nor the Pixel XL 2 will have a dual-lens camera. According to Venture Beat, HTC is manufacturing the Pixel 2, while LG is making the Pixel XL 2. Google announced the original Pixel phones in early October past year, so it's possible that we'll meet these new models in two months' time. Some reports have suggested that Google might try to differentiate its two Pixel models, with the smaller Pixel looking like the current version while the Pixel XL2 features a more expansive screen and squeezable sides for controlling the Google Assistant.

Google is unsurprisingly working on a 2017 generation of Pixel smartphones - which debuted past year with a 5-inch Pixel and a 5.5-inch Pixel XL.

Images of what's said to be the Google Pixel 2 have been shared by VentureBeat. However, it's said that the larger, 6-inch Pixel XL 2will have thin bezels, thus likely resembling the device seen in previously leaked renders.

This is kind of an obvious expectation given that the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are upgrades to the 2016 models. Be sure to let us know in the comments! Similar to other 2017 flagships, the pair will drop the Snapdragon 820 series in favor of the new Snapdragon 835 SoC, but some sections are adamant that the Google phones could be the first to debut with the slightly upgraded Snapdragon 836, just like it happened previous year when they got the Snapdragon 821 instead of the Snapdragon 820 that featured in many flagships released in 2016. Both the 2017 Pixel phones will be having a better camera, and that's something really interesting. He says that the smaller of Google's two phones will retain the usual front and bottom bezels. We believe that then we have to rely on the USB port. Sure, it's nice to have front-facing speakers, but in an era where refined and futuristic looks are becoming the norm, the Pixel 2 might become outdated even before it arrives on the market. The handsets will come with the next major release of Google's mobile OS, Android 8.0 O.
