Full Pixel 2 XL specs sheet leaks out (size, weight), along with the blue Pixel 2 front

Here it is, folks, the leak of leaks when it comes to the newest Google Pixel phones that are about to be unveiled today, or, specifically, the Pixel 2 XL, whose full specs sheet just appeared stuffed to the gills with tidbits we never knew before, like the exact weight and dimensions. As an added bonus, the source posted the front of the Pixel 2's blue version, which you can see on the right, as well as the black ones. Unfortunately, the 2 XL won't come in that blue hue, for those who are wondering.

As you can see in the screenshot link below, the Pixel 2 XL will indeed arrive with a 6" 1440 x 2880 display with 538ppi pixel density, Snapdragon 835 chipset, 4GB RAM, and 64GB of basic storage. The Just Black option is, well, black, like in the renders, and the chassis is apparently made of aluminum with some type of water-resistance. So far, so good, that much we knew about the handset, and the leaks confirms the rest of the known stuff, too, like the 3520 mAh battery capacity - larger than the pack in the Pixel XL predecessor, and, with a 10nm processor, promising better battery life. Gorilla Glass 5 will be adorning the front, and a programmable e-SIM card is seemingly there indeed.

Now, off to the new stuff. The Pixel 2 XL will be 6.2" x 3" x 0.3" (157 x 76 x 7.62mm) compact, and will weigh in at 6.17oz (175g). That means that it will be as large as the Pixel XL, and only a bit heavier, but with a 6" display instead of a 5.5" panel, albeit in the trendy 2:1 format, confirming the "bezel-less" rumor about the handset. There will be an 8 MP front-facing camera with a fairly narrow f./2.4 aperture, and three mics for noise cancellation purposes. 

There's something called the "Pixel Visual Core," too, but it remains to be seen if this is the rumored Google image processing chip, or has to do with the eventual wide color gamut of the display. In any case, the Pixel 2 XL unveiling event starts in a few short hours, and we are already at the gates to relay the festivities, so stay tuned.

Who uses imperial measurements? Could you not translate it to metric for the overwhelming majority of the world to understand?

As someone in the USA I have to agree with you. I'm used to seeing phones in metric. It would make it easier if the USA just converted to a normal metric system that is nice an uniform.

The USA and the U.K. use imperial measurements. Seeing as this is an English website, it's not unreasonable to assume that the overwhelming majority of its readers come from an imperial measurements using nation. The minority here, such as myself, can go ahead and use google on our own, to convert. Absolutely no need to cry about it.

You learn something new every day. There was an attempt in the 1990s to convert it to metric with requirements of foods sold having to be marked as metric. But people are stubborn. So the requirement was given an extension until the late 2000s. Still didnt work too well. U.K still very much uses miles and lbs and inches and gallons.

The UK is officially metric, although they use some strange mix of various systems for their everyday lives with pints, furlongs and what not. And nearly every international site on the internet uses English. Using English doesn't make a site US-centric, it merely means it's aimed at a global audience, just like the metric system (which is also global).

The UK never went officially metric. It was attempted, twice, with both falling through. Foods are still sold in lbs, and petrol is still sold in gallons. Roads are still marked in miles. They gave up a few years ago, trying to force the metric system on the people.

I'm trying not to purchase out of protest to the missing headphone jack... But the XL just looks toooooooo good for me to not purchase. I have bluetooth headsets and a wireless charger so I guess it is not that big of a deal, but love the option of using wired headphones (gym pair). I also really wanted that second lens but somthing tells me their will be enhanced software to support a faux zoom (Google always has cool software tech).

The Note8 will put this overpriced garbage to shame. Sorry, serpent Google, there's no room for you compete with king Samsung. Just keep developing Android software and leave the finishing products to Samsung, you aren't needed in this field.

Funny, I bet you said the last thing about last year's Note/Pixel. Meanwhile, last year's Pixel is outperforming this year's Note and last year's Note... well, maybe I shouldn't go there, it's still too soon.

Oh really? In which way does it outperform the note line product? Don't bring some lame points like coz it runs pure Android experience. Google isn't capable yet at least not now.

Yet they're using googles OS? lmao. Developing successful software (which includes an Operating system) is the true test of a company's prowess at least as regards phones, not hardware. Anybody can make good hardware, heck, even one+ and xiaomi makes them. BTW, how's samsungs tizen going for them? oh yeah, I thought as much. buahahahaha
