New Google Pixel 2 XL photo revealed by Walmart alongside fresh Home Mini images


Google hasn't been able to keep its upcoming Pixel 2 smartphone series under wraps, so we've already seen both devices (the 5-inch Pixel 2, and the 6-inch Pixel 2 XL), while also learning quite a lot about their features. 

 

Unlike the Pixel and Pixel XL of 2016 (which shared the same design, though in different sizes), the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have fronts that don't look alike. More exactly, the Pixel 2 XL sports a display with round corners and minimal bezels, while the Pixel 2 has a more traditional screen with pretty large bezels at the top and bottom. In case you're doubting about the fact that the new Pixel XL comes with a differently-shaped display, you really shouldn't. Giant retailer Walmart today inadvertently revealed a new render of the handset - almost certainly an official one - showing its round-cornered screen once again.

As you'll notice below, the Pixel 2 XL leaked by Walmart has a white rear, while its front is black. The front glass may be a bit curved on the sides, but the display itself is most likely not curved at all. A USB Type-C port is visible at the bottom of the smartphone, as is a pair of front-facing stereo speakers.

 

Walmart revealed this previously unseen Pixel 2 XL image on a page made for another unannounced Google device - the Home Mini. As reported not long ago (and as its name clearly suggests), the Home Mini is a smaller version of the Google Home smart speaker that's already available to buy.

 

According to Walmart's product page (no longer online), the Google Home Mini will be launched on October 19 for $49. October 19 is also the day when the Pixel 2 should hit shelves in the US. Unfortunately, it looks like the Pixel 2 XL won't be released at the same time, instead being available starting November 15.  

 

Google will properly announce the Pixel 2 XL and Pixel 2 tomorrow, on October 4, and we're expecting to see the Home Mini then, too. Stay tuned!
