Gorgeous Pixel XL 2 concept envisions less rear glass, more LG styling


Judging from this new Google Pixel XL 2 concept video, the phone could look a lot like the LG G6, and that would come as no surprise given the rumors that LG may be the company charged with its production. 

The author of the imagery claims that the display will come from LG, too, and reiterates the rumors that the Pixel XL 2 may sport dual speakers, shrunk top and bezels (not all-screen, though), and would use less glass on the back. The phone should be top-notch in terms of specs, Snapdragon 835 and all, and it is showcased here an a bevy of pretty colors. Which one would you pick?

Looks great! Hopefully they will not shoot themselves in the foot and make it a Verizon exclusive again. That was a dumb idea on Google's part.

I hope they reduce the price and make the device readily available. Looks good.

Looks like LG G6 and iPhone 5/5s/SE had a baby...

Why the upper speaker hole isn't spaced or aligned correctly with the bottom one?. My Pixel 2 dream is to have the Samsung S8 front with dual speaker(of course aligned correctly). Makes me remember why i disliked the LG G6 design; the lower bezel is bigger than the top one instead of being symmetrical.

Because its just a hand made concept.

That is obvious, which begs the question why not make it symmetrically spaced to perfect the design!

Let's hope it will look something like that... Dual camera lens on the back also will be nice... LG has the technology for wide angle photos.

This is nice. Design wise it’s Up there with the s8 duo

I'm not a fan of the unprotected front glass. I like metal wrapping the corners and inset glass. The back is also too plain and iPhonesque with the antenna lines. Where's the style?! And it should have wireless charging, so maybe a circular inset glass on the back. Why does everything have to look so bland. iPhone may have revolutionized the smartphone, but they also standardized dull and boring design.

The title clearly states that this is a concept...

IPhone SE with near bezeless design. No thanks. Vanilla android is not for me. I'd rather get an iPhone if I'm going to look for stock.

Looks like a dream ! I wish someone on Google liked it as much as I did.

Seems like 18:9 display which PhoneArena hates so much cuz Samsung Galaxy S8 has a weird screen ratio, now everyone is adopting and after Apple gets that, then it will be like"The New Standard" for the rest of the world.

Amazing. This will be a true Android flagship. It just needs 6GB RAM.

I usually do not upgrade my devices every year......but......if the new Pixel looks likes this, then I'm definitely upgrading my current Pixel XL.

If this was to be the way it looks, it is better then the first one. I didn't care for the first one at all.

Looks nice but need a dual rear camera.

I have faith that LG will take Google's design and make it look good. Since the LG chocolate and LG prada deal they absorbed the Prada style from that agreement. Except from the G2-G5 they kind of lost that but seems to be back for the G6. I think the key for LG is if it's rectangular they look good. If they try and get curvy they look like crap like the new iPhone does. Samsung seems to be the only that makes curves and roundish phones look great. They had to change the aspect ratio to do it but they did it.

With those bezels being so small, I think it would be hard to impliment a front-facing, dual-speaker system. I believe this is the reason why Sony is having a hard time getting rid of their big bezels and why ZTE allowing a bezel above and below the screen after the metal frame.

Stupidity if they make bezel less phone . Real stupidity.

Looks alot like my Nexus 6p. I'll be very happy if it have great speakers like the N6P. I'm not a fan of glass backs, so even more good news. Now make the camera as good as the U11 or the Pixel1 and all's left is select a color.

That's a nice concept and good location for finger print scanner.

Iphoney SUCKS! It's a copy of everything else. They haven't created anything new in 10 years. But the fanboys and fangirls love them some big fruity!

That concept is actually beautiful. Hopefully Google use it.

Glass phones suck. They get dirtier, the material is heavier, they're more fragile, and wireless charging is dumb.

Concept creators make better looking phone concepts than original released versions. They should work for phone companies. What a render!! Red one looks crazy
